Statewide and nationwide, the housing boom shows signs of winding down. But in the Tampa Bay area, prices keep climbing.
The median resale price among single-family houses rose 4.9 percent locally to $225,700 last month, up from $215,200 in September. By comparison, the median – or midpoint – price throughout Florida fell 2.7 percent to $241,000, down from $247,800. It was the state’s second such decline in three months, according to a survey by the Florida Association of Realtors.
