Tampa was recently ranked as the number one city in the United States for those that are buying a home for the first time. This is a bit of a surprise considering Florida as a whole is one of the worst states for available affordable housing, but we are proud of this new title!
The median home value in Tampa is $213,600, has a population rank of nineteen, and a share of listings with a price cut of about twenty-five percent.
Some other Florida cities that made a spot on the list for the top cities for first-time home buyers were popular areas like Orlando and Miami, but other sources strongly disagree with this claim.
The city that came in second place was Las Vegas and was followed by Phoenix and Atlanta.
If you’re a first-time home buyer you should definitely consider anywhere in the Tampa Bay Area!
