It’s a super time to be selling a home in Tampa, Florida.
Homes are practically flying off the market in the city, which is home to the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In December, the number of single-family-home closed sales was up 11.7% from a year earlier to 4,714 in the Tampa-St. Pete-Clearwater area, according to the Greater Tampa Realtors. The median time to contract dropped by 65.6% year over year from 32 days to just 11 days. And the market only had 1.1 months’ supply of inventory with 4,746 listings.
Meanwhile, the median sale price rose 15% from December 2019 to December 2020 to $289,900, according to the Realtors group. And sellers were getting 99.5% of the asking price.
Tampa has a lot to offer a homebuyer. Florida is known for its weather, and it has low property taxes.
Many businesses are based in the Tampa area, especially restaurant chains and cigar makers. Tampa Bay is also home to a major port and MacDill Air Force Base.
