As we settle into the winter months, analysts and experts across Florida and the U.S. are declaring a hot real estate market.  Yes, 2021 is slated to be an excellent year for home sellers and homebuyers — from millennials, to snowbirds, and everyone in between in Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco Counties.

As more retirees decide to downsize to smaller homes, more out-of-state residents look to invest in Florida, and more millennials are interested in buying their first homes, our real estate team wants you to know the latest trends in local real estate.

Tampa Bay Area Homebuying and Selling Trends

Here are 5 reasons why 2021 will be a hot real estate market for the Greater Tampa Bay area.

  • People are Making Moves: Despite the pandemic, or perhaps because it, people across the Tampa Bay area making home life and home investments a budget priority.
  • Now is a Great Time to Sell: Locally, home values are on the rise. Tampa Bay area sellers could be reaping the benefits of above average price gains in 2021. Experts are predicting that local home-sale volumes could exceed the national average this year. In other words, there are buyers waiting to see your house!
  • Interest Rates Remain Low: Due to the state of the economy, The Federal Reserve has kept interest rates at record lows. For qualified buyers, a 15-year or 30-year mortgage with affordable monthly payments could be within your reach for 2021. Additionally, due to rising home values and other market factors, it is possible that buyers may see substantial equitable value within the first few years of ownership.
  • Tampa Bay is Where Buyers Want to Be: Tampa Bay boasts everything from gorgeous beaches, to an active job market, to the Superbowl this winter. Our thriving economy and our beautiful array of home options creates an irresistible attraction to living in the Tampa Bay area as opposed to comparable metro regions in the South.
  • People are Ready for a Change: If 2020 taught us anything, it is that we need to love where we live.
