Tampa Among Most Popular for Relocators
Did you know that Tampa is one of the country’s most popular destinations to live? A new Redfin report ranks Tampa at number 5, behind Miami but above Cape Coral, Orlando, and North Port-Sarasota. In all, 5 of the top 10 relocation destinations are in Florida.
Living in Florida is less expensive than many other states, partly from not having a state income tax. Plus, when you live in Florida you enjoy beautiful weather year-round, perfect for enjoying Lagoon living at MetroPlaces communities.
Redfin reports that the share of relocating homebuyers nationwide is up from 24.5% in the fourth quarter, 22.8% a year ago, and roughly 18% before the pandemic. Most searches for moving to Tampa come from home shoppers in New York.
