Looking for a booming area to buy a home in? Check out south Hillsborough County - the area south of the Alafia River off of Interstate 75 in Riverview, Florida. Housing continues to boom in the Tampa Bay area with 7,545 new home starts in 2015 in Pinellas, Pasco, Citrus, Hernando and Hillsborough counties - with a third of those new homes (2,502) located in south Hillsborough. Everywhere you look in the Riverview area - on both sides of I-75 - you'll see new communities...Waterleaf, Royal Lakes, Village Brook, Imperial Trace, Waterset...are just a few of the 149 subdivisions with new construction going on. South Hillsborough is even surpassing the Wesley Chapel/New Tampa area in Pasco County which at 898 new home starts is currently booming in growth as well! Not so long ago in the South Shore area there wasn't much going on - the driving distance to Tampa and the lack of stores, restaurants and other urban amenities hurt the area. Recently though, things have changed - Amazon opened a huge distribution center, St. Joseph's Hospital opened a satellite location on Big Bend Road, and there are numerous new chain restaurants, banks, big box stores and retailers like Marshalls and Bealls that are all part of the vibrant area known as South Shore which includes Riverview, Ruskin, Gibsonton, Sun City Center and Apollo Beach. So if you are looking for affordable housing and don't mind a little bit of a drive check out the Riverview area in south Hillsborough - it has a lot to offer these days.
