I am thinking of moving to wesley chapel. I would like some input re: this town. Can anyone recommend a new family development under $350,000? Good schools are a priority and a safe community. I would also like to find out more about the home owners insurance. Can I get input on pros and cons for that area? Thank you.

I love it here, we moved 3 yrs ago from VA. As far as Homeowners insurance it is much higher here than most places, but the risk for hurricanes is high too. Most of the communities here will fit into your price range. I would look for a home that was built after 2002 as that was the last major building code change and will get you lower premiums on insurance. I am in meadow pointe community and it is nice. Wesley chapel is less expensive than New Tampa because of the county lines, pasco county right now is less taxes ect..
hope this helps

Default Insurance

Hi, thanks for the positives. I was wondering how much your insurance is per $100,000. In Arkansas, ours was $600 per $100,000. Currently, here in New Tampa off of County Line Rd, we are paying $265 per $100,000. The house we sold last year was around $410 per $100,000. I have figures for all states and would like to know how they vary across region. Thanks.

I lived here for over 3 years and I love it. If you shop around for home owners insurance you can find a lot of different quotes. I'm not in a flooding area so that saves money. The traffic can be busy but on the other hand they are working on the roads and have a lot of plans for the future. 3 Malls are going to be open soon so that can help by driving less miles to Hillsborough County. The property taxes are lower than in Hillsborough County but we are still close to the airport. There are a lot of communities which have nice pools, etc. for less than $ 350,000.- in todays market. You can spent this amount for houses that used to be over $ 400,000.-.
My experience with the schools is very good and my 7th grader just was invited to take the SAT test, this was on inventation of a University that has a program for kids who are doing very well in school. He is in public school and moved in 4 th grade from a private school (Manatee County)and had to catch up a lot to even get on the level of a 4th grader. Now he is doing 8th grade work thanks to the great school in Wesley Chapel. Good Luck.

I just posted. Read my former reply.

Also, my children are at Watergrass, a brand new elemen. school this year. They are happy and well-cared for and the school is right next door. I have 3000 sq. ft. in Bridgewater for 163,000. Amazing prices. Look for bank owned foreclosures and not short sales. The indefinite amt. of waiting time is unnerving for short sale approval.
