Today’s robust residential real estate climate won’t come as a surprise if you’re pursuing a new custom Florida home. In fact, digital real estate giant Zillow tabbed Tampa as No. 1 and Jacksonville as No. 2 in the company’s annual predictions for the Top 10 Hot Housing Markets in the new year. Rounding out this year’s top five were Raleigh, North Carolina, San Antonio, Texas and Charlotte, N.C., respectively. Nashville, Tennessee, Atlanta, Georgia, Phoenix, Arizona, Orlando, Florida and Austin, Texas completed the top 10, respectively.
Always one of the United States’ top residential destinations, Florida has welcomed millions of new residents during the past couple years’ pandemic-influenced influx, and that’s not expected to change in 2022.
What does this mean for future Florida home buyers? Tampa and Jacksonville are two of ICI Homes’ top markets!
Read on for more on why you should consider a new custom Florida home in Tampa or Jacksonville.
Why Zillow likes them
All the details are right here, along with Zillow researchers’ statistics, data and prognostications.
In a nutshell, top-ranked Tampa and second-ranked Jacksonville have earned spots among the Top 5 Hot Housing Markets in 2022 because of thriving economies, job growth and ongoing generational shifts in home-buying trends.
Because of this, Zillow researchers are predicting home values will continue to rise in Tampa and Jacksonville, and so will both metro areas’ attractiveness to baby boomers keen on dream or retirement homes, and younger generations (read: millennials) eager to own first homes.
Choose ICI Homes in Tampa and Jacksonville
Florida’s year-round temperate climate, stunning natural beauty and recreational resources are major reasons many people move here.
Both the Tampa and Jacksonville metro areas check all three of those boxes, along with beautiful beaches, status as major maritime ports, professional and collegiate sports, thriving cultural, social and art communities, and major universities (the University of South Florida in Tampa and the University of North Florida in Jacksonville).
Jacksonville was also listed as one of 5 metro areas poised for “Supernova” growth by the Urban Land Institute. It’s no wonder both cities claim top spots on the Top 5 Hot Housing Markets for 2022!
