5 midcentury-modern gems in Tampa Bay you can actually afford

If it seems like it's getting harder to find a good deal on a house, it's because it most certainly is. Home prices in Tampa Bay rose 4.9% in 2019, and 2020 is projected to be just as steep. Last month, the median home price in Hillsborough County was $259,990, with Pinellas slightly above at $271,000. But that doesn't mean there aren't a few gems out there, especially if you're in the market for a classic midcentury-modern abode. In an effort to stay under the local median price, here's what we found for $250,000 or less in the Tampa Bay area.
