Tampa Bay has been ranked among the top places in the country for real estate value, and for the number of people moving there to purchase property, according to data analysis conducted by Redfin. Currently number three on the list of U.S. cities where people want to move, Tampa saw 9,000 more people move to the area than away from it in the first two months of 2022, compared with 6,000 during the same time period a year ago. Placing fifth in the list at the end of 2021, the only cities now ahead of Tampa are Miami and Phoenix. The main origin location of home buyers is Orlando.
Melanie Atkinson, realtor for Smith & Associates, noted that the weather in Florida is one of its biggest draws, but that “Tampa has been overlooked for many, many years.” She went on to say that people are discovering the beauty of the Bay, and the amount of money put into growing both Tampa and St. Petersburg is definitely paying off. Redfin economist Taylor Marr stated that moving across country “is now easier for many Americans” and that the “cultural shift is here to stay”. What’s more, shows like Netflix’s Selling Tampa are highlighting the area as a serious option to consider when deciding where to live, by showing off all that the city has to offer.
When buying a property or moving to a new city, it’s preferable to view any potential new homes and neighborhoods in person, so you can get a feel for whether it’s the right option for you. You don’t want to lock into a 12-month lease if you don’t know that it’s the perfect place for you, right? Even if you can visit Tampa before you move here permanently, it can be inconvenient to get everything done you need to in a day or two, and expensive to stay longer, but Ready Stays has the perfect solution.
