The real estate market outlook continues to be favorable for home sellers, with prices steadily rising since 2020. In fact, prices rose by 22.2 percent compared to 2019. And, with low interest rates and low inventory, bidding wars are pushing prices even higher. So, if you are a homeowner looking to sell, this is the time – especially if you live in one of the top 10 hottest U.S. housing markets, according to Work and Money.

The average days on the market for a home in Tampa is 10, and home prices are expected to increase by 7.5 percent. The typical home value is $281,097.
