When looking at pockets of Tampa Bay to buy fixer-uppers in, we love the Temple Terrace area. Temple Terrace is about 12 miles North of downtown Tampa. There are small pockets of housing in this area that make great flip or rental opportunities.
REVIVAL’S FIXER UPPER
We’ve purchased several houses in Temple Terrace over the last few years. Most of them have been from landlords who were ready to divest, for one reason or another. Two of our favorites are here and the updates were similar in both cases. New roof, granite counter tops in kitchen and baths, updated flooring, lighting and plumbing fixtures, interior and exterior paint and landscaping. We love renovating and reselling in Temple Terrace!
According to Redfin.com, average sale price in Temple Terrace is $200k, or $121/sf, which is up over 9% from last year. Days on Market in the area are around 30. The majority of houses in the area are about 1690 sf and were built between 1970’s and 1980’s.
Temple Terrace is a great area with many restaurants and activities for families to engage in. The area is known for its great public schools. Elementary schools in the area are Riverhills Elementary Magnet School, Lewis Elementary School, and Temple Terrace Elementary School. The closest middle school is Greco Middle School. There are not any high schools directly within Temple Terrace but many close by. The University of South Florida is located right in Temple Terrace for anyone headed to college.
If looking for something a little more low-key activity with an educational aspect in Temple Terrace, one should check out the Museum of Science and Industry. Within the museum are not only hands on exhibits, but also a butterfly garden.
Don’t leave Temple Terrace without stopping at Ruben’s Cuban Café! Ruben’s Cuban Café is known for being a family-owned fixture with Spanish staples like crab meat croquettes & Cuban coffee. If craving a classic Cuban sandwich, there is no going wrong here.
