Rebecca Liebson - Real Estate Reporter

Real Estate Reporter

As the real estate reporter, I cover one of the hottest industries in the Tampa Bay area and delve into how the market impacts the lives of the people who live here. Like many Florida converts, I grew up in a suburban town outside of New York City. Before arriving in Tampa I spent two years in South Carolina where I reported on affordable housing issues. Most of my free time is spent watching a variety of trashy reality TV shows.

  2. The Cove On The Bay apartment complex in South Tampa sold for $132.8 million on June 21.
  3. La Bahía de Tampa lideró el estado en ventas de viviendas unifamiliares el mes pasado.
  4. This Gulfport property was actioned off earlier this year as the first NFT house to be sold in the United States, with a starting bid of about $650,000. Tampa Bay's median home prices continued to surge in May, but demand might finally be cooling off.
  5. The Kolter Group broke ground on a 42-story, 244-unit luxury condominium called Arthouse St. Pete on June 22, 2022.

  6. This South Tampa home built in 1925 by by Val Maestro Antuono, the largest cigar manufacturer of the time, went on the market for $2.995 million in 2018. It sold in May for $2.5 million to a developer who has filed an application to split it into six lots.
  7. La tasa promedio para una hipoteca fija a 30 años en EEUU alcanzó el 5,65 %, la más alta desde la crisis financiera de 2008, según los datos más recientes de la Asociación de Banqueros Hipotecarios. Esto puede hacer que el mercado de bienes raíces en Tampa se enfríe.
  8. The average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage in the U.S. has reached 5.65%, the highest since the 2008 financial crisis, according to the most recent data from the Mortgage Bankers Association. This may cause the real estate market in Tampa to cool down slightly.
  9. A rendering of the Related Group’s condo proposed for Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa.
