Hi everyone, I’m going to do an overview of South Tampa / South Tampa homes for sale. I do these videos to give potential home buyers a better understanding of the different area in and around Tampa, FL. I don’t believe Realtor should steer home buyer into an area just because they like it and live there. I like to tell customers about the different areas and let them make the decision for themselves. Of course, I will give my input based on our conversation. If you are looking to buy or view any South Tampa homes for sale please go to my South Tampa web page and get the most accurate information.
Below is the transcription of South Tampa Overview:
Hi everybody my name is Lance Mohr and I’m a real estate agent in Tampa, Florida and I’m going to do this overview to go over South Tampa and South Tampa homes for sale. I do these overviews to help people.
Most people who are going to be in South Tampa really know up front where they want to be. South Tampa, like any big city, this is the nucleus. This is where everything is. You just have a certain energy level in South Tampa that you don’t have further north or in the suburbs and people generally know that. Now most people, when they say South Tampa, they are really looking at everything from Kennedy which is just below Interstate 275. South of Kennedy you have everything such as restaurants, night clubs, car dealerships, convention center, waterfront homes and you are sitting right on the bay. Now one thing about the bay, it is not a place where you are going to go swimming. It’s brown murky water, but it can be beautiful. A lot of people who like really breathtaking sunsets are probably going to be more on the west side of the South Tampa. The east side is more Bayshore Blvd. and big huge high-rise condominiums overlooking the water. There are homes of every kind. There are little itty-bitty condos of 800 or 900 square feet, single family homes, all the way up to this huge McMansions sitting on the water, to penthouse condos. Like any major city, it is going to be expensive. You are paying for the area; location, location, location. That is why in areas like this they build up and they don’t build out. It is not too unusual for someone in an area to go and pay $200,000 for a home, rip the home down, and build a really big home there. You can pay $400,000 for just a lot in South Tampa or even more. You have some of them that are on Davis Island that are even more expensive than that.
If you are looking and you really liking that energy level and you really like to be in the action where everything is; South Tampa is a great place. It has condominiums, it has townhomes, it has a bunch of single-family homes. You can buy $150,000 home in South Tampa and two blocks away there are multi-million dollar homes. You can be in a multi-million dollar home and of course two blocks away there is a $200,000 home. So it just depends and there is always turnover in South Tampa. There are new homes, but predominantly you will find pre-owned homes. South Tampa pretty much started in the 1910s – 1920s, with all the cigarette factories from Cuba. South Tampa has a lot of vibe and a lot of things in the area and a lot of stuff to do. It is the nucleus of the city.
