We are moving to Tampa FL area in couple of months time, my work place is in Clearwater side and wife's is in Tampa side. Please help us to figure out the below questions

1. Is it better to stay in Clearwater and commute to Tampa or is it better other way around?

2. We both work 8 AM to 5 PM jobs and hence traffic would be peak for our commute.

3. We are looking to rent initially and try for a condo within 6 months. Budget is not a major constraint.

4. School is not a major concern, daughter is just 4 years old as of now.

5. Daily commute time of 10 to 30 minutes should be prefect.

6. Security would be important to us.

Thanks in Advance for your replies.

I doubt 10 minutes is possible.

It depends. If the decision is soley based on commute I would live Tampa side commute to Clearwater.

If you can share the areas you two work in you might get a more precise opinion, but even living at the airport (arguably the middle) won't put you 10 minutes from either.
