Tampa, Florida -
Robert O’Connor from Robb Luxury Home Group, a real estate professional serving the Greater Tampa Bay Area, is sharing his insights into the future of the Tampa Bay luxury real estate market.
Rising mortgage rates over 2022 and the fears of an impending recession later in 2023 have caused a decline in the demand for homes all over the United States. While in April of this year, the median sale price of US homes was down an average of 4.2% compared to the same time last year, the fall in prices has not affected all kinds of homes equally.
“The luxury real estate market,” Robert says, “is stronger than ever, especially in areas such as Tampa which have a growing labor market and low inventory of high-end units. As people from all parts of the country move here for the promise of an upgraded and refined lifestyle, those with well-maintained and updated properties in the most desirable areas are still calling the shots when it comes to home pricing.”
According to the trend analysis posted on the real estate broker’s website, the market for single-family and attached homes in Tampa is still a seller’s market with a sales ratio of 25% and 29% respectively. As of December 2022, homes in Tampa were still selling above 98% of the list price though the number of median days on the market has increased from the same time a year ago.
Robert O’Connor breaks down the numbers for property owners by saying, “If you own a luxury property in Tampa, you are still in control. While it is natural to be apprehensive due to higher interest rates and the bleak projections about the economy’s future that are being bandied about in the media, there isn’t a better time than now to kick off a major life change and make the most of your property investment.

He took me to several houses that I selected. Then he said I have the perfect neighborhood for you. I purchased my home in the neighborhood he recommended. He stayed with me through the entire purchase of my home. I will be using Rob on my next home purchase!”
