My opinion is that if you are trying to escape the given factors of life in a large city I would avoid a large city.
There are many less populated, congestion, high crime to look at. With both of you having in demand skills the options are there.

There are several new home communities going up in Pasco along 54 (Land O Lakes) - in fact I have a home that shows like a model for around that price in Ballantrae. I also like North Tampa around the Northdale, Citrus Park, Carrollwood area. If you come up to Pasco there is the Trinity Hospital, Brandon also has a huge hospital. My husband is a manager with the HCA hospital network and may have some ideas about jobs. PM me if you want some information about jobs/ or me about housing. Good luck. This is a great area to be the in the medical field!

HOA fees are community fees, usually for things like a pool, community center, but could even cover yard in some townhomes or condos. Each vary greatly. My mom has that in a 55+ for $58 a month (she does her own yard), but they can go up very high to hundreds.

CDD fees are for newer communities and can last 10 - 20 years from when the community was developed. It pays the government for the extra services like fire and schools it will need to put into place when a community is developed. They are found in your taxes. USUALLY these newer home communities keep their HOA fees low when their CDD fees are high to keep people coming in. For example, I have a house listed in Ballantrae in Land O Lakes. The HOA is about $300 A YEAR for pool, club house, splash park and free basic cable... but the CDD is in the taxes so a house around $225k pays taxes before homestead of around $4000 a year instead of around $2000 a year which is more typical.

These fees are only a burden if you don't take them into consideration when you are looking. They are usually on the MLS listing and must be disclosed to you when you make an offer or so many days when you go under contract so that you can back out if you don't like them. Your real estate agent can help you when you buy with all these details.
