Waterfront is clearly one of the most costly options in purchasing a home in our area. Being on the Gulf of Mexico would typically be the most desirable. If Gulf front (on the beach) is your desire you would, in all likelihood be looking for a condo.
Single family homes that advertise as waterfront Are usually located on canals. You would want to assure you have Gulf access with a boat. If you like sailing more questions are required. Make sure bridges don't block your access and the water is deep enough for your boats draft. Remember being on or even near the water will require you carry FLOOD INSURANCE.
Be aware of the words "water view" as it can require 20 20 vision from a small opening or wide open views from every room.
Have fun and ask lots of questions .... more
I moved to st Petersburg from the new Jersey about 2.5 years ago and couldn't be happier with my choice. St Petersburg is the 5th Largest city in the state of Florida, and as you stated has a very vibrant downtown that is still in the midst of being revitalized. There are new building being built downtown all them time and the cultural choices continue to expand.
I have noticed that across the United States the larger cities tend to be more liberal than the smaller ones, Florida is no exception. I would consider St Petersburg to be one of the most liberal cities in Florida, and especially in the areas closest to downtown pretty educated. The schools are the main draw back to Pinellas county. There are some good public schools but in general I would recomend private schools.
I would love to chat with you and learn a little more about exactly what you are looking for, and see how I might best be able to help you. I am a licensed Realtor with Keller Williams St Petersburg and know the St petersburg area very well. Hope to talk to you soon
Keller Williams St Pete
33713 is a diverse area. Lots of great craftsman homes and bungalows. Some new or newer townhouses as well as scattered apartment complexes. Lots of shops and restaurants along Central Avenue. This is close to shopping along US 19 and very close to downtown or only 5 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. I used to own a home in Kenwood and loved the area.... more
The City of St Petersburg passed an ordinance I believe in 2011 that panhandlers and sign flyers, etc would be arrested. This was done because of our tremendous growth in tourism and the City took the necessary steps to protect our business owners, hotels and home owners. I hope this is helpful. I may have the year incorrect. Caroline... more
Some times it takes Trulia awhile to update information.
But remember, their value is not based on the appraisal just a best guess.
If you are interested in selling I can help you to find true value
You may want to look in the Largo and Seminole area as well as Clearwater. There is a homeschool group in that area that a client of mine mentioned two weeks ago. I personally have no knowledge but she told me she googled home school groups and found one there. Both towns are close to shopping, beaches and lots of things you might enjoy. If you are going to be in the St Petersburg area go to www.stpete.org/neighborhoods and you will find out all about our great city. It is surprising what you can accomplish on-line today in the real estate market.
As a realtor I too have searched for an excellent rental agent for several years. If you find one please share the name. I agree that good ones are hard to find.... more
Begin your search with www.stpete.org/neighborhoods
Then you should connect with a Realtor to ask questions and get the lay of the land. Explain your family needs, wants as well as the things you don't want. Such as do you want the beaches along the Gulf of Mexico? If so you look at St Pete Beach or Treasure Island both in zip code 33706. Or you can swing around to Tierra Verde at 33715. If you want luxury living downtown St along the Tampa Bay and within walking distance to restaurants, boating, sports, museums and performing arts check out 33701 and 33704.
Check out www.stpete.org/neighborhoods where you will find a lot of information about the great community of St Petersburg.
As some of the others have said, Crescent Heights, Old NE are great. I'd also look at the 33702 zip code, plus some of 33703 and 33704 - Shore Acres, Snell & surrounding communities. Seminole/Largo is also a nice area too. Please let us know how we can help!

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
Our downtown is an amazing vibrant area and the area of 1st and 5th is on the fringe of this. Just outside the hustle and bustle but close enough to enjoy all that downtown has to offer. We have amazing food establishments and world class museums and the beautiful waterfront with all the parks that are always so full of life. What a beautiful place we are lucky to live near and enjoy.... more
If you want to live around protitutes and drug dealers. I've lived here for about six years, I bought my home in '09 during the housing crisis and this was the worst mistake I ever made, the people in this neighborhood are hopeless they let these whores walk all over the place and use the alley ways as a bathroom, condom wrappers everywhere, guys looking for prostitutes 24/7, the police can't do anything about it, I've contacted city officials, and the mayor. The one thing these realtors won't tell you is that, there all slum lords and could careless about this neighborhood. This is message is for all the landlords with some humanity left in them. please, families still live in this community, do a background check, and pay some attention to your property, you might have someone sign the lease with a good background but that doesn't mean that there boyfriend, family member or friend won't turn your home in to a dope spot. my sons seven and he doesn't know how to ride a bike, my next door neighbors and my family are like prisoners because we have sexual offenders and sickos running around looking for cheap women to sleep with. Other than that it's a pretty good area... more
Jewel Vincent is right. It isn't far at all to any of these beaches from this condo complex. And this condo is not in a flood zone! If you'd like more info on this condo, feel free to call, text or email.
