Temple Terrace, Florida Real Estate and Community Info

Temple Terrace is one of three incorporated communities in Hillsborough County and offers homes, townhouses, condos and local amenities that deliver not only great values for families, singles and retirees but also great investment opportunities for rental properties. This is due to the large student population that attends nearby University of South Florida and the proximity to USF keeps rental prices high and vacancies low.

Newer market changes in Temple Terrace include the area’s many apartment complexes that have converted to condos and townhouses for even more choices for living opportunities. And while investment opportunity is prime in Temple Terrace the city is also nationally known for its selection of mid-century modern homes for sale.


On the northeast side of the Tampa Bay area, Temple Terrace is strategically located just a short drive to three major interstates:  I-4, I-75 and I-275.

Temple Terrace residents also have convenient access to the area’s finest medical facilities, cultural activities, restaurants, shopping and sporting events.
