And despite the pandemic, the average sale price in Tampa was 11.1 percent higher over the past month than a year earlier, according to Redfin. However, hundreds of homes have been pulled from the market as efforts to curb the virus' spread slowed the economy, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
For buyers looking in the $1 million range, there were only 35 active listings in South Tampa, local real estate agent Andrea Webb told FOX Business this week. In some cases, homes priced between $900,000 and $1 million have moved within a day or two of hitting the market, she said.
Even with the economic downturn, some brokers are expecting that pulled listings will return to the market, the Times reported. Meanwhile, buyers may be able to score some deals, so here’s a look at what’s on the market in Tampa for a buyer with a $1 million budget:
Davis Islands - $985,000
The 2,766-square-foot home includes four bedrooms, three bathrooms and one half-bath, according to the listing with Shelia Fisher of Century 21.
The interior maintains the home’s original charm with oak and pine floors, built-in storage and ornate crown molding. But it’s also been updated with modern looks, and there’s lots of space for hobbies. There is a detached woodworking/craft shed and a garden shed/repair shop with electricity and water.
The location in the historic Davis Islands neighborhood is also a big plus. In addition to being the new heart of “Tompa Bay,” the community offers a pool, tennis complex and two dog parks, among other amenities.

This Spanish-influenced home is located less than a block from Bayshore Boulevard and its 4 1/2-mile waterfront running and biking path.

The large master suite’s bathroom includes two sinks, a separate soaking tub and a walk-in shower, as well as a private covered porch off the master bedroom.
Channelside - $925,000
