I may be moving to the Tampa area for a job soon (we'll see), and I'd like to stay in the general Clearwater area. However, I'm skeptical that getting an apartment or home for rent in my price range will be in any way affordable.

I'd like to find a 3-BR house or apartment until I can get more settled, but I have no idea what I would be paying, considering how close this area is to the ocean and how many people want rentals in this kind of location.

Any suggestions welcome.

Which is no where near St Pete/Clearwater unfortunately.

Without knowing your budget, it's tough to make any suggestions. You can find nice older construction three-bedroom homes in desirable/well established neighborhoods in Clearwater for $1000-$1300 per month. The same type home in St Pete in a similar neighborhood would run around $1500-$1800 per month. A nice option between the two in terms of price is Seminole, where you can find similar homes in the $1300-$1500 range. Seminole is close to the beach and very centrally located as well.
