Makes is challenging for many groups, first time buyers on average incomes, particularly our first responders, hospitality and care workers and teachers - many of whom are the ones the wealthier retirees rely upon as they age. But people do keep coming.

Tampa-St Pete isn't alone here in Florida. Miami-Ft Lauderdale-West Palm Beach is the worst followed by a quickly gaining Orlando and SW Florida (Ft Myers-Naples). Jacksonville for now is the only big city in the state that maintains some affordability versus average salary, but don't see that lasting long either.

Jacksonville is more "Deep South" than stereotype Florida.

I couldn't afford to be homeless in San Fran.

I can't believe the number of huge new subdivisions being started in the TB area. So many cookie-cutter homes built feet apart with, I guess, families are lining up to buy them. Builders wouldn't be building them otherwise, right? I sure hope the economy doesn't tank again as these new home buyers vacate leaving the banks with the unpaid mortgages again. Looks like we're setting ourselves up with another housing bubble, real estate crisis.
