While 2016 may have been a hard year for most real estate markets across America, Tampa Bay, Florida did exceptionally well. New reports are coming out that detail just how well we did around here, especially in terms of home sales, year-over-year. This, of course, is good news for our area, as new home sales create a lot of jobs and show a sense of security. Even so, there was one down-note in this latest report, and it was that younger families are still finding it hard to buy in Tampa Bay because of the higher asking prices. Other than that, most of those who were looking for a home found one. Here is the first bit of this report:

“TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa Bay home sales showed huge year over year gains in November while prices in Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando counties also jumped dramatically. The November figures are a sign that Tampa Bay’s housing market remains strong even as rising interest rates threaten to put a chill on sales nationwide.”
