“How much does a house cost in Tampa?” I am asked this question quite frequently.
My answer to this question is “Home price has been going up last couple of years. Median price for Single Family home is about 170-180K.”
But I feel this number needs much more in depth explanation.
Showing numbers from the most recent Florida Real Estate statistics (Oct. 2014) might help this.
Tampa Bay Area (Metropolitan Statistical Area = MSA) is consist of 4 counties, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando.
Median Sales Price of Single Family Home for Tampa Bay MSA is $159900.
But when you look at the more detailed break down by Counties, especially by zip codes, you will see a vast gap in prices.
Highest Zip Code:33606 Price：$550000 Lowest Zip Code:33605 Price：$46000
Highest Zip Code:33767 Price：$900000 Lowest Zip Code:33714 Price：$42099
Highest Zip Code:34613 Price：$160000 Lowest Zip Code:34606 Price：$69950
