Technology jobs tend to be higher paying jobs and according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek, three of the ten cities leading the nation in tech jobs are in Florida. Miami ranked seventh, Jacksonville ranked fourth and Tampa ranked 8th. High paying jobs + buyer’s market + high affordability index = real estate sales. The challenge for these three cities will be providing the skilled workers required for these jobs because although the tech jobs are increasing, if the companies providing the jobs can’t find employees in-state, the will hire them from elsewhere. That will still improve our real estate market, but won’t help lower our unemployment rate.
