A place to make a home.
St. Pete is characterized by 260 miles of waterfront property, but there’s much more to this city when you explore the neighborhoods that make it special. From brick streets and quaint bungalows to urban rooftop gardens, St. Pete offers a vibe — and price range — for everyone.
Taking the settling out of settling down.
With cost of living below the national average, St. Petersburg is one of the most affordable mid-sized cities in the Southeast.
The median sales price for a single family home is $206,500, and $145,000 for a condo or townhome. (Pinellas Realtor Organization, October 2016)
Charming historic districts.
Several historic neighborhoods surround downtown. Brick, tree-lined streets meet Craftsman-style homes, well-loved gardens and welcoming porches.
Historic Old Northeast and Old Southeast are walking or cycling distance to downtown and the waterfront. Historic Kenwood to the west of downtown is just a short drive.
Quiet waterfront communities.
Snell Isle, Venetian Isles, Tanglewood, Shore Acres and Crisp Park, are some of St. Pete’s family-friendly waterfront communities.
To the south of downtown, you’ll find waterfront neighborhoods in Old SE, and the Pink Streets. A quick highway drive south takes you to Gulf/beach neighborhoods of Tierra Verde, Pasadena and St. Pete Beach.
Modern downtown living.
St. Pete’s heart, from five blocks north and south of Central Avenue, is where you go for high-end condos and townhomes.
Ample grocery stores, convenient parking, and amenities like jogging paths and dog parks make it easy to work and live downtown.
A commitment to the community.
There is a strong vision and directive to nurture disinvested St. Pete neighborhoods. The City of St. Petersburg has an active Housing Action Plan, and non-profits (Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County, VentureHouse and Builders of Hope) are hard at work.
Hundreds of vacant, distressed homes in targeted neighborhoods such as Childs Park, Midtown and South St. Pete are currently being rehabilitated and restored.
Housing opportunities for every life stage.
The rental market in St. Petersburg is thriving, with opportunities ranging from modern apartment complexes to single family homes.
Many rental communities feature shared in- and outdoor amenities to support the Florida lifestyle: pools, grills, and communal outdoor spaces. There is a rental option to suit every budget, and lifestyle throughout the city.
