More About Seminole Heights

Because a lot of this area was built in the early 1900s there are a lot of bungalow style homes. When these were originally built they were sold each at the same exact price—somewhere around $4,000. Seminole Heights has been talked about on HGTV as one of the best places in the US to buy an old house. Many of these houses have been remodeled and there are Instagram accounts devoted to that following. But there is a lot of potential remaining in this area.

The heights area it is a small area on the map but since the houses are so small there are quite a few residents in the area. A house newer than 1930 and larger than 1200 square feet is rare to find. Because the homes are small, and many of them need some TLC, prices are typically below the average for the Tampa area.
