I can't stress enough how ridiculous the information on this site is. Almost every category is significantly lower than what we actually pay in St Petersburg. Do no use this site!

There is a housing shortage in St Petersburg FL. The cost of housing is much higher than this website suggests. I rented a one bedroom apartment with no garage for $1500 with no stainless steal appliances and no updated bathroom. I then purchased a condo and went with the lowest HOA I could find which is $500 per month. There weren't any condos in my price range so I low balled the one closest and they took my offer and I paid 219K for a 2 bedroom 2 bath 1100 square foot home. The cost of housing is much higher than this website suggests.

The travel time you request in St Petersburg FL is HIGHLY influenced by the time of year. MOST significantly during SPRING BREAK when all the SNOWBIRDS are still here PLUS A HUGE INFLUX OF COLLEGE KIDS. FYI

Me and my husband rent a1 bedroom 890 sq foot apt. and we are 10 min outside "downtown" St. Petersburg, and we pay about $1,300-$1,400 just for rent alone (our apt is decent or really nice as our friends say, stainless steel appliances, walk in closets etc.) Our electric bill ranges from 80$ in the winter and 190$ in the summer. We are located near and in the middle of all major cities though like Tampa, Clearwater, which again we are about 10min away from so maybe that has a huge effect on our cost of rent. But even the cost of living is pretty expensive. When we go to a chain restaurant like Ciccio or Green Lemon our tabs without drinks or apps are usually about 30$ without tip. If we got apps its usually about 40$+ not including tip and that is without drinks and these restaurants are pretty casual. Hopefully this helps. We are thinking about moving to CO or the mid west trying to figure out somewhere there that is the same (ideally less) just to venture out I feel like St. Pete is still up and coming and becoming more "hip" over time. But we have lived here our entire lives and are used to the "beach" we are looking for more outdoor activities other than "beaching it." Like hiking or snowboarding..
