According to CNBC, the real-estate analytics company TenX ranked Tampa as the nation’s healthiest housing market, based on factors such as changes to population, incomes, jobs, unemployment rates, and housing inventory and construction.

Other healthy markets include Dallas, Jacksonville, and Columbus, Ohio.
