Hello,

I'm currently a Washington DC native and due to my job, I am relocating to the Tampa area in May. I am a single mid 30's black male and trying to find an area to stay is mind boggling. Being from the DC area, paying around 900-1200 for a 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath will not be out the norm for me, the only thing that will be different for me is paying water, and electric and all that other stuff I am reading you have to pay in Fl; whereas those items were included where I am now. My current salary is about 55K a year and my job will be located on W. Hillsborough Ave, so anything 15 to 20 min away without traffic will be fine. I sent out help from apartment finders, and they have found me a few in Clearwater and Town and Country and Westchase and St. Petersburg. Not to be rude but I do not want to be in an older generation community, remember I from Washington, DC so I know this will be a major culture shock for me.

Thank In Advance

Check out Egret's Landing at Boot Ranch. It's a nice complex in a very convenient/desirable area (East Lake) close to restaurants/shopping (actually walkable) and a decent commute to the West Hillsborough Avenue corridor (20 minutes). The neighborhood population tends toward mid-30s to mid-40s working professionals.

What part of Tampa is your job? It could make a big difference in commute time if you're living at the "wrong" end of Tampa.

It would appear West Hillsborough Avenue given the original post.
