Tampa: Best Large City for First-Time Homebuyers | cdc monthly - July 2018

A recent study by the personal finance website WalletHub.com named Tampa the most favorable "large" housing market in the nation for new homebuyers and second overall--regardless of population size.

The study compared 300 cities of varying sizes across 27 key indicators of market attractiveness, affordability and quality of life; the researchers classified "large cities" as those with populations of 300,000 or more.

For our Homeownership Center, the above statement may have been the most important part of the article--since it echoes the advice provided to aspiring home buyers we assist, regardless of income-level.

"Potential homebuyers often feel intimidated by everything that is involved in the home buying process. That's why CDC of Tampa is here to help!" said Debbi Jarrie, Director of CDC's Homeownership Center. She added, ​"Our team of HUD-certified counselors offer clear information on every element of purchasing a home, and expert advice on navigating the purchase process."

To get started on the road to homeownership, please join CDC of Tampa's Homeownership Center for an hour-long orientation session. Sessions are scheduled every other Wednesday from 6:00 - 7:00 pm, and are completely free.
