Clearwater Beach is Awesome! 

We all are feeling grateful once again after Idalia moved up the coast.  The last direct hit in the Tampa Bay area was over 100 years ago, knock on wood.  Thanks, and praise to city employees and the police for keeping us safe and getting to work cleaning up the beaches immediately after the storm. As soon as they opened the bridges, I was on the sand to assess.  It was surreal as always to see the beaches evacuated and feel the energy the storm leaves behind.  

In this HOUSING MARKET report, we wanted to see how the Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach markets are holding up.  We also looked at Pinellas County just to look at what is happening inland as well as the beaches.  We expect prices to stay in a range as we get ready for the season.  Activity should pick up at in the coming months and we will see if the market will continue in the buyers favor or if demand will pick up enough to put the sellers in charge.  High interest rates have forced a lot of buyers out of the market here, however more than half of all closings on the beaches are cash.  Looking around the local communities we see a lot of expansion commercially, which is a good sign that the local economy is still thriving.  Hopefully Pinellas County will continue to thrive and keep those storms off the coast in 2023!
