A couple years ago when I first moved back to the neighborhood, there were some pretty silly, sometimes nasty comments on this blog regarding owning vs. renting a house in Seminole Heights. Some of the newly transplanted residents were a bit uppity about their recently acquired bungalows and got carried away with their giddiness over the Starbucks and their eagerness to oust the more working class elements from the hood in their quest to become "The New Hyde Park". What I'm curious about now is whether those folks who bought houses here during the boom of 04-06 still feel good about their purchases now that the bubble is collapsing around us and Tampa is facing an impending recession. Is the neighborhood all you hoped it would be? Is it transforming quickly enough? Have the taxes and insurance been worth it? Is Tampa, and this neighborhood in particular, still a great place to live? How does it compare to other neighborhoods you've lived in? How does the quality of life compare to other historic neighborhoods in other towns?
