Gratitude in Tampa
Why we give thanks this Thanksgiving. We are so fortunate to live and work in Tampa Bay. The economy is booming, new home construction is strong and home prices continue to rise. In fact, Tampa Bay ranked 11th in a national study on best places to invest in real estate.

A recent article on WUSF’s website cited, population growth, a friendly business climate and low prices are contributing to Tampa Bay’s ranking, along with Florida’s low taxes.  Housing costs in the area — when compared to other communities — is also a factor. For more real estate market stats on the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas, visit the Greater Tampa Realtors website.

As a Tampa home staging and interior design business, Home Frosting is beyond thankful to be a part of our local community and this thriving economy. This week our office we will be closed on Thursday and Friday so our team can enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with  friends and family.

Before we take off to refuel and likely gain a few pounds, we wanted to share our top five things we are most grateful for this year.

  1. Our clients
    To all the home sellers, Tampa Bay Realtors, home flippers and real estate investors who give us the opportunity to provide home staging, home improvement and home interior design services — A big thanks!
  2. Our professional partners
    From who gives us a platform to reach over 1.3 million Realtors with home staging advice and interior design ideas to Daytime TV, the nationally syndicated television show that airs in over 100 markets, to our product resources where we buy home decor and home furnishings, to our talented contractors who paint, provide building services and expertise that makes us look great everyday — Gracias!!
  3. Our Home Frosting team
    Lyndsey, Eric D, Suzanne, Candace, Cathy and Eric V your dedication, talent and hard work are so appreciated. Our profession is not always easy and without all of their contributions, Home Frosting would not be one of Tampa Bay’s leading home staging and interior design service firms, Thank you!!!
  4. The home staging profession 
    Once a cottage industry, the Home Staging sector is now a critical part of real estate success helping people add real value to their assets and earn excellent returns on their real estate investments. From trade associations like Real Estate Staging Association — to the other Tampa Bay area home staging companies including Dwell Home Staging, Showhomes and Cardinal Designs, your good work helps educate sellers and keeps the standards of our industry high. Merci!!!!
  5. Our GREAT country – USA
    How privileged we all are every day to live in a free and great country where entrepreneurship is welcomed and nurtured, and capitalism provides us all the keys to any destiny we choose. We are overflowing with gratitude!!!!!

Until next week be safe, have fun and be grateful for all the amazing things we have in Tampa Bay.
