There are a number of nice neighborhoods east of I75 off of highway 301 that are popular with both buyers and renters. Also along roads such as Fort Hamer and Old Tampa roads, although that may be further east than you wish to be from the interstate.

I would suggest asking about the utilities as you'll find a lot of homes are on septic tank, some areas are also on well water. Don't assume every home is on county water and sewer. Wells and septic systems do require knowledge on how to maintain them and, with the septic systems, knowledge on how to avoid problems by knowing what should and shouldn't go down the drain.

Ellenton is safe. If buying a home in colony cove your land fee could be 800.00 a month if on a lake. Your only utility is your electric bill! ANd no there are no septic tanks. If you want to RENT a 2 bedroom 2 bath TURN-KEY home the winter months can run about $1800.00 a month..

I live in Ellenton, have done so for 10 years, first in Colony Cove and now in a home with no deed restrictions. I personally, have had no problems of any kind.
There are a lot of nice developments cropping up off of Camp McDonald road. There are also several villas that are for rent at around 850 per month,,,2 bed, 2 bath. Plus many mobile home parks that have rentals available.
