Hello Tampa Bay:
Here is an interesting market update. Prices have been going up, while inventory continues to go down. It’s a great time to list a home.
In February 2015, 3,917 homes were sold in the Tampa Bay area with a median price of $145,000. This compares with 2,896 homes sold during the same period last year which translates into a 35% increase in the number of homes closed and a 10% rise in the median price (from $132,000 to $145,000). At the end of the month there were 16,561 homes for sale in the area; 24% of the available homes sold in the last month – this translates into an inventory of 4 months. There has been a 6% decrease in the number of homes available for sale from February 2014 to February 2015 (from 17,695 to 16,561).
