SHOCKING: 33 Homes For Sale UNDER $300K in Midtown Tallahassee
I find it amazing that you can still find a home for less than $300,000 in Midtown.
And while I'm at it, where the heck (specifically) is Midtown in Tallahassee anyway?
This article features some of the best homes for sale in Midtown priced below $300,000, and it puts a definitive boundary line around what is arguably the hottest segment of the Tallahassee housing market.
How To Find Midtown in Tallahassee
I have lived in Midtown for a few years now, having moved "in town" from the suburbs. Gone are the lazy days of the country club lifestyle, replaced with a plethora of activities and establishments that have added more than a few pounds to my waistline.
I know that I live in Midtown, but what I never realized in the past was that there are so many differing views regarding the boundaries of Midtown, so here is what I've decided to do.
I have created a map that shows my understanding of its boundaries, but I'm wide open to feedback from our readers on how the boundaries are correct or incorrect and perhaps recommendations that should be made to make an official map for Midtown Tallahassee, Florida.

I consider the $300K price point to be the edge of forever for Midtown. It won't be very long until you will not be able to find a home here, at any size or any condition, for less than $300,000. The location is prime and land values are going to exceed $300K much sooner than many people might believe.

I am sure others will have their own opinion, but I believe your boundaries are far too generous for Midtown. You really want to be easy walking distance to the commercial amenities on North Monroe and Thomasville. And even though the Centre of Tallahassee is being renovated, I wouldn't include it in the equation. It will still be primarily car oriented and trying to cross North Monroe/John Knox in that area is anything but a pedestrian friendly experience. (In fact, far too much of North Monroe is unfriendly to pedestrians, and, to be frank, an ugly assemblage of chain stores, pawn shops and check cashing joints).
I think Midtown brings together a combination of older building stock, mature trees and landscaping, walkability, and a higher concentration of independent businesses. And you HAVE to include Lake Ella as the jewel in the crown. So I would set the boundaries as follows:
Magnolia/Centerville on the east;
Betton/Bradford/North Monroe/Monticello on the north (though I would also include Glendale and Dellview Drive);
Monticello/Gibbs south to 4th Ave on the west, then MLK south to Tennessee on the west;
Tennessee on the south.
