Housing in the Tampa Bay area is as diverse as the city itself. There are a wide variety of residential communities to choose from, ranging from the charming historic neighborhoods and chic high-rise condominiums of South Tampa, to pristine golf course communities in Palm Harbor. Enjoy the feel of “Old Florida” in a beach bungalow on St Pete Beach or live in grand style in a waterfront estate on Davis Islands. While luxury properties are plentiful in Tampa, overall the average housing prices are among the most affordable in South Florida.
