Housing Market Forecast for Tampa 2023
What forecasts are there for the Tampa real estate market in 2023? Let’s examine the pricing patterns that Zillow has been tracking for the previous few years. One of the strongest long-term real estate investments in the United States historically has been Tampa. According to the Zillow property Value Index, property values in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metro area have increased by almost 9.1% over the past year.
ZHVI reflects all available housing stock, not only those that are listed or sold during a particular month. Homes in the Tampa Bay region currently cost an average of $358,017. It shows that 50% of the area’s housing stock is valued at more than $358,017 and 50% is valued at less. (adjusting for seasonal fluctuations).
Since there is a shortage of homes in Tampa, buyers are frequently compelled to compete, which frequently leads to higher prices and/or speedier transactions that typically benefit sellers. In other words, sellers have the upper hand in pricing discussions over buyers since demand outpaces supply. More houses are under contract than there are buyers who are actively looking.
Additionally, it would take roughly six months for the supply to reach zero in a balanced real estate market. If the housing supply rises to more than six months’ worth of inventory, the Tampa market may slant in favor of buyers. And it won’t happen anytime soon. Due to a continuing supply and demand imbalance, the Tampa real estate market is still strong for sellers.
