TAMPA, FL, July 6, 2016 (Newswire.com) - As the market continues strong through the summer months it is no surprise that there are more buyers than ever searching for new homes to hit the market. Although many might believe that the South Tampa market is stronger than North Tampa, statistics from the Florida Association of Realtors (FAR) prove otherwise. According to realtor.com and The Tampa Bay Times, zip code 33624 is among the most desirable and highly searched zip codes, not only in Tampa Bay but in the entire state of Florida!
Joe Lewkowicz is an experienced Coldwell Banker agent who has worked with countless buyers and sellers in both Northdale and Carollwood. The Times recognized Lewkowicz’s familiarity with these North Tampa areas, asking the realtor what makes them so highly sought after.
“Northdale is affordable square footage for the money,” he said. “Plus they’ve got the YMCA, which a lot of people use, the golf course, a great school right there (Gaither High), and it’s close to downtown.”"Northdale is affordable square footage for the money," he said. "Plus they've got the YMCA, which a lot of people use, the golf course, a great school right there (Gaither High), and it's close to downtown."
The homes in Northdale are built in a contemporary style that allows for modern twists on classic charm, but the added local commodities and proximity to Tampa’s booming downtown make it a hard area to pass over. The area boasts several shopping and fine dining options, including: Whole Foods, Sam’s Club, Cigar City Brewing, and The Sacred Pepper. Residents also have access to a number of athletic and recreational facilities, like the YMCA and local golf courses.
Added to the area’s attractiveness is the affordability, which Lewkowicz says is unlike any other area in the Bay. Lewkowicz is currently negotiating an offer on a 2.400-square-foot home with a newly renovated kitchen and golf course views, listed at $325,000. “In a lot of other areas, you cannot get that [kind of home] for that kind of money,” the realtor said.
Carrollwood Village, another real estate hotspot Lewkowicz knows inside and out, varies in structure from Northdale, but is no less popular. “It was one of the earlier planned unit developments so it’s not cookie cutter houses, but nice big lots and for a reasonable price,” Lewkowicz said. “And it’s so much closer [to downtown], while some of the nicer neighborhoods like Cheval are almost to the county line.”
Lewkowicz recently closed on a four-bedroom, four-bath, 3,400-square-foot golf course home, which sold for $425,000 just seven days after it was listed. A home of the same size, not located near a golf course, in South Tampa would cost between $750,000 and $800,000.
While the homes in Carrollwood vary in style and build, the area is like Northdale in that it is full of local restaurants, shops, and recreational amenities. Conveniently located just a short drive from South Tampa and the Downtown area, and some of the classic North Tampa attractions, the character, accessibility, and sense of community in Carrollwood Village make it a must-see for those shopping for a new Tampa home.
The popularity in Northdale and Carrollwood is evident and can be observed in the average home prices, which have risen steadily and consistently for the past 4 years. Those who took advantage of the market boom in 33624 have certainly made a great investment. Many of the residents of this zip code, however, have not moved in decades. The area’s popularity seems to keep the residents, who enjoy a peaceful and tranquil lifestyle, in Tampa’s accessible Golf Course suburb.
Experienced real estate agent, Joseph R. Lewkowicz, has sold many of the homes in these highly sought after Tampa areas. When he started his career in real estate, he purposely targeted the Northdale and Carrollwood neighborhoods because of their popularity and convenience.

Lewkowicz’s abundance of sales in the areas have afforded him with a unique knowledge of the marketplace. It seems that Lewkowicz is always involved in Northdale and Carrollwood home sales, whether it be as the listing agent or finding the buyer.
