Prices for single-family homes in the Tampa Bay area jumped 11.4 percent in January from a year ago, far higher than the statewide average and the highest of any major Florida metro area.

The number of sales that closed last month also rose significantly — up 10 percent — in a sign that the robust market that began in early 2016 will continue.

“Florida’s housing market continues to show positive momentum,” said Maria Wells, president of Florida Realtors, which released the figures Wednesday. “While existing inventory remains tight, Realtors across the state are reporting interest from both buyers and sellers — and with interest rates expected to rise over the next few months, now is certainly a good time to take action.”

5. AMAZING PARKS AND RECREATION

Tampa’s Curtis Hixon Park was named among America’s Best New Parks by The Atlantic Cities. Completed in 2011, the waterfront park serves as a more natural connection between the water, downtown, and the new Children’s Museum and Tampa Art Museum. Tampa Bay’s beloved public spaces spread throughout the region provide gathering places for families, friends, colleagues, and events from small to large scale.

The Tampa Bay region is the 14th largest television media market in the country, with 1.79 million TV households, according to Nielsen Media Research. That means Tampa Bay has 1.6 percent of all television households in the United States. It is the largest market in Florida – surpassing Miami. If you’re looking for media exposure, you’ve found it.

9. LOW COST OF DOING BUSINESS

According to a KPMG business cost study, the Tampa Bay market is the nation’s lowest cost large market for Corporate Services, International Financial Services and Shared Services – a testament to strong business, financial and data services sector in Tampa Bay.  KPMG’s 2012 Competitive Alternatives study measured 26 significant cost components over a 10 year planning horizon.  Bottom line – Tampa Bay is a great place for business.

10. HOT ENTREPRENEURIAL ENVIRONMENT

According to FastCompany Magazine, Florida’s start-up environment is soaring high. From the HuB in Sarasota to Tampa Bay WaVE’s First WaVE program to large events such as Start-Up Weekend and initiatives like the Tampa Bay 6/20 Plan, Tampa Bay’s entrepreneurial environment is setting up for start-up success.

Realtor.com’s latest relocation study has named Tampa as America’s top relocation destination. According to the new report, Americans are on the move as the country’s economy continues to grow and people are heading south to improve their quality of life and take advantage of Tampa’s affordable housing prices, strong job market, and no income tax status.

Tampa took the top spot in the study above Jacksonville, Charlotte, San Antonio, and Austin, which rounded out the top five, during a time that Realtor.com calls one of the “busiest” relocation periods in recent memory.

Realtor.com was quick to point out that this population shift is not in retirement age people, but among adults who are still in the workforce. The report highlighted that Florida had “unusually strong job creation,” so plentiful job opportunities are driving the trend to relocate to the Sunshine State. In another piece of research, Realtor.com identified Tampa as the third most popular relocation destination for Millennials.

“Attracting fast-growing Millennial-owned companies and young, highly skilled talent to our workforce will fuel our region’s prosperity for decades to come,” said J.P. DuBuque, Interim President & CEO of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation. “With the growing number of financial services and technology-focused companies relocating to and expanding in Tampa, our community is a perfect place for young professionals in industries like these to find their dream job, buy an affordable home, and enjoy an unparalleled quality of life.”

“The Realtor.com study echoes the research we have done,” added DuBuque. “Abundant career opportunities, affordability of housing, lower cost of living and lifestyle are the key factors influencing most Millennials’ relocation decisions. Tampa ticks all of those boxes.”

The report also identified a trend of Americans moving out of large markets in the Northeast and Midwest to move to smaller metros like Tampa to escape the winters and the high cost of living. Tampa’s median home price is $230,000 and its unemployment rate is low at 4.4%. The study also cites New York as the market in the U.S. losing the most population to Florida.
