When it comes to real estate, the best case scenario is finding a home in an area as it is becoming popular. This way you protect your investment and get to reap the benefits of its popularity—entertainment, dining, and job opportunities all combine to make an incredible place to live. When it comes to major metropolitan areas, you can’t do much better than the Tampa area right now!

Tampa currently is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation—it grew by 300,000 new residents between 2010 and 2017, according to Livability.com. The story’s title alone says it all: “Why Everyone Is Moving to Tampa Right Now (And You Might Want to Join Them).”

Here’s what Livability loves about Tampa (and what you’ll love too!)

• Redeveloped Downtown and Waterfront

Tampa recently spent $3 billion to develop 54 acres along the waterfront that connects to downtown with luxury hotels, office towers, and apartments. This 2.5 mile riverwalk connects tons of entertainment, dining, and shopping. Enjoy the aquarium, the Tampa Museum of Art, and spend time at Sparkman Wharf, which features beer gardens, eateries by renowned chef’s and often live music.

• Job Opportunities Abound

Tampa ranks 4th for job opportunities, with an unemployment rate well below the national average. New businesses like Mosaic, the Frank Recruitment Group, and Liftup are opening in Tampa and bringing over 200 jobs.

• Affordability

Tampa’s cost of living is more than 8% below the national average, and first time homebuyers are flocking to the area—it was recently ranked 2nd in the country.

• Sunny in the City

People love sunny Florida, which is a feature that won’t go away anytime soon. Enjoy being near the ocean and festivals that take place all year long.
