5 Reasons to Purchase Your Second Home in Tampa

Florida has always been a major tourism destination on the East Coast, which makes it an obvious choice for second home buyers… and Tampa Bay has emerged as one of the best cities to own property. Here are five reasons to purchase your next home in this dynamic coastal city:

1. Home Value
Home values are soaring, with a recent year-over-year increase of nearly 13 percent — always welcome news for property owners. For the last two years, exponential employment growth has driven the demand for real estate, contributing to steady year-over-year appreciation.

2. Business Growth
A large number of public and private companies are headquartered in Tampa Bay. Residents are benefiting from one the top employment growth rates in the nation … and business owners have access to one of the largest talent pools in the US.

3. Beatification Projects
The city continues to invest in its waterfront, spending billions of dollars to connect its burgeoning downtown neighborhoods with walkable waterfront pathways and parks. Thanks to temperatures that hover north of 70 degrees year-round, Tampa residents get to enjoy these city-developed outdoor recreation spaces regardless of the season.

4. Arts and Culture
Tampa Bay – a tri-city area that includes Downtown Tampa, St. Petesburg and Clearwater – features a vibrant collection of nationally renowned museums and theaters. It’s also home of Gasparilla, one of the nation’s largest festivals that brings the city together for an array of exciting festivities and street parades.

5. Food and Drink
Tampa has become known for its culinary arts. It’s the 11th best foodie town in the country and the third best foodie town in Florida. Whether you crave a unique, high-end food experience like Bern’s (home of the world’s largest wine cellar) or flavorful creations from some of the nation’s best gourmet food trucks, you’ll love Tampa Bay’s vibrant culinary scene.
