In the last year, the Tampa Bay area had the 10th largest decline in housing inventory out of the country's 50 largest metros, according to a recent realtor.com report.

Why it matters: High demand and unusually low inventory is a recipe for rising home prices. In other words, it's a sellers' market.

By the numbers:

  • Inventory is down 53% compared to this time last year.
  • There are also 31.8% fewer listings compared to this time last year.
  • The median number of days on the market is 57, nine fewer than last year.
  • Median list price is up 8.2% year over year, at $302K.
