    Tampa:

    Website ranks St. Petersburg, Tampa as top ‘pet friendly’ cities in the U.S.

    A new ranking by the real estate site Zumper calls St. Petersburg the most pet friendly city in the country, with Tampa following closely behind.

    The ranking calculated scores for 95 American cities in three categories: ease of owning a pet, places to play and the number of home rental listings that allow animals.

    Ease was based on the number of pet stores, veterinarians and pet-friendly restaurants listed on Yelp, as well as the cost of pet insurance. Play scores were based on the number of dog parks per capita, the percentage of each city’s area set aside for parks in general, pleasant weather and a city’s walkability according to WalkScore.

    The Top Reason to List Your House For Sale Now!

    The National Association of REALTORS’ (NAR) Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun recently commented on the inventory shortage:

    “With demand holding firm and homes selling even faster than a year ago, the notable increase in closings in recent months took a dent out of what was available for sale. Realtors are acknowledging, with increasing frequency lately, that buyers continue to be frustrated by the tense competition and lack of affordable homes for sale in their market.”
