When you’re buying a home in Pinellas County, you want a guide who knows the area well. From property trends to community events, I keep my thumb on the pulse of everything Tampa Bay and especially North Pinellas County. As we embark on your home hunt, we’re going to tour the neighborhoods together, looking at properties and finding you your dream home. Take a look at some of your community options and then get in touch!
- Dunedin – As the quintessential coastal community, Dunedin has become one of the jewels of North Pinellas in recent years. Along with quick access to Honeymoon Island and Caladesi, you’ll find a quaint downtown and a budding craft beer and food scene.
- Palm Harbor – With numerous neighborhoods, Palm Harbor also comes with its own share of hidden parks and a smaller downtown with some excellent spots that are off-the-beaten path. As a community, the city also offers many affordable homes, but you’ll also enjoy how this area bumps up against Lake Tarpon on one side and Saint Joseph Sound on the other. In addition to access to the Pinellas Trail, you’ll get the occasional family-friendly event and plenty more.
- Tarpon Springs – Anchored by the city’s downtown, Tarpon Springs also attracts many visitors to its historic Sponge Docks. If you’re buying a home in Pinellas County, but haven’t walked the Spong Docks, I highly recommend it. With many Greek restaurants, this spot has some phenomenal desserts that are worth every bite. There’s also lots of properties with water access in this area, since the city also bumps up again Lake Tarpon and Saint Joseph Sound, but also has the Anclote River running through it. Tons of charm and plenty of options in this area.
- Clearwater – From Clearwater Beach to Countryside, you’ll discover that Clearwater is very diverse. On the one hand, you can buy an incredible condo that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and live the slower, beach-inspired lifestyle. Still, there are plenty of homes for first time homebuyers and families, and because the city is right along Old Tampa Bay, you may find the access to Tampa via the Courtney Campbell to be convenient for commuting and entertainment options.
