Forecast for Tampa’s Housing Market | U.S. News Housing Market Index


Tampa Housing Market Trends and Predictions for 2023

The Tampa housing market has been through a rollercoaster ride in the past year, with rising mortgage rates and fluctuating demand affecting prices. Despite these challenges, Tampa is holding steady, thanks to its strong job market, low inventory levels, and growing population.

Real estate agent Kseniya Korneva notes that there are two housing markets in Tampa right now – one where competitively priced homes in desirable neighborhoods are seeing multiple offers, and another where homes needing updates or in less popular areas are sitting on the market for longer periods.

In 2022, construction activity in the single-family sector saw peaks and valleys, with a decrease in permits compared to the previous year. However, the multifamily sector experienced a significant increase in permits, leading to a rise in rental vacancies.

Tampa’s supply of for-sale listings remains low, with prices holding steady and even increasing slightly compared to last year. The area’s rising population and strong job market are contributing factors to the market’s stability.

Looking ahead, builder confidence is improving, and the real estate market is expected to remain steady. With low unemployment and growing consumer confidence, Tampa’s prices are likely to continue to rise, making it an attractive market for investors and remote workers alike.
