Hi all! Just found this site and hoping for some help. Our daughter will be relocating to the area for approx 1 1/2 yr. We really have no idea where to start on looking for a place to live. Here are some details:
Work: In the area of I75 and I4
Budget: Probably $600 to $800/mo for basic rent

As a parent our biggest concern is a safe area. Can you help point us in thr right direction?

Thanks in advance

I think you can find a nice apartment closer to the $800 range in a nice and safe neighborhood. I live in Tampa Palms (New Tampa area). It is close to I-75. I-4 is about a 15 minute drive.

Another nice place to consider is the Enclave in Richmond place, also in New Tampa. The negative is there is a ton of street construction. The plus, you are just a very short drive to I-75.

I would suggest staying away from places on Cross Creek Blvd. The traffic could add 15-30 minutes

Hope that helps.

South Brandon is a lot closer to I-4 I-75 than New Tampa. Best areas to look would be South Brandon, Bloomingdale area/Valrico (South of 60) and areas that are South Brandon East of Kings Ave, South of Lumsden all the way to Fish Hawk/Riverview.

These are still much closer than New Tampa and would be MUCH better for a drive for your daughter. It is ONE dangerous drive between her work zone and New Tampa during rush hours on a DAILY basis!!!
