I was recently offered job in the Venice area. We currently live in the Melbourne area. (Brevard Cnty) and are looking for a great place close to work and close to Tampa. We are looking for a master planned community atmosphere Newer stores, schools, communities, town. A rated schools are a huge plus. Low crime rate. I havent a clue on where to look over there. Please help!!!! How is Bradenton, Ellington, Brandon is a little far, but I heard it was nice. Is it worth the commute? We are looking to rent for a year in a nice neighborhood and then purchase possibly within that year. Help Please!!
We are a couple in our mid 30s with 2 kids 2 and 8.

If the job is in Venice you will be better off with a place in North Port. The commute from Bradenton/Sarasota will get very old, very fast. There are hundreds of brand new homes in North Port that the builders would love to sell you. I think the last number I heard was 500+ in builder inventory, and 2,200+ in total homes on the market in North Port.

I don't have kids, so I know nothing about schools. North Port is growing, and there are plenty of new businesses popping up.

On a good day it will take 60 minutes to get to any part of Bradenton that you want to live in. Ellenton is even farther.

off of I-75 is exit 217 SR 70 east and there is Braden River. Great area and good schools. Your 20 minutes from Venice in good traffic. Than your looking at 1 hour or less to Tampa. I'm working at the school there and the development is excellent. Good luck.

Lakewood Ranch is a zoo! Houses rae so close you thinmk you were in a major city and the taxes are outrageous. Traffic is a joke. It willl take you 30 minutes just got to the INterstate never mind the travel time to Venice. Count on it more like an hour. No kidding that place is insane!
