Tech Industry Booms in Florida, Impacting Housing Market: Robb Luxury Home Group Shares Insight
Tampa Bay's Robb Luxury Home Group is excited to report that Florida continues to be a top destination for technology jobs, despite national layoffs. According to a recent report by CompTIA, Florida ranked No. 5 in the nation for job postings, with 15,300, a 4,244 increase from the previous month.
The report also revealed that employer job postings for tech positions increased by 76,546 month-over-month to a total for March of nearly 316,000. Professional, scientific and technical services, administrative and support, and manufacturing led the way for job postings last month.
Rob O'Connor, leader of the Robb Luxury Home Group, is optimistic about the impact of this growth on the local housing market, saying, "With the increase in tech jobs and companies looking to hire in Tampa Bay, we are seeing a rise in demand for housing in the area. This growth in the job market is a great opportunity for us to connect with new residents who are looking for luxury homes and show them why Tampa Bay is the perfect place to call home."
The report also noted that more than 9.1 million people work in tech jobs, spanning both technical and non-technical workers employed by tech companies. Additionally, about one in five tech job postings offer remote work or hybrid work arrangements as an option.
CompTIA forecasts a 3% increase in tech jobs this year, an increase of 272,000. Among the tech occupations poised for growth this year are data scientists and analysts (5.5%), cybersecurity analysts and engineers (5.2%), web designers and UI/UX professionals (4.7%), software developers and engineers (4.7%), and software quality assurance and testers (4.1%).
As the tech industry continues to grow, the Robb Luxury Home Group is excited to be a part of Tampa Bay's thriving real estate market and is ready to help those looking to make the move to the Sunshine State find their perfect luxury home.
