Looking to possibly relocate to Tampa area for job oppurtunity. Here is the basic run down.

Looking for quiet suburban neighborhood. We are a young couple with no kids but plan on having kids soon so good schools is high priority. Budget is 150-200k with not much preference between town-home or house. Commute time to USF of 45-min or less. Not big into the whole night life/party scene. We really like the "out of town feel but still close to things" idea (10-15 min to Walmart, etc). Initial research seems to be pointing at New Tampa/Wesley Chapel area. Thanks in advance for any advice.

New Tampa sounds like an area that would suit your lifestyle and will find places cheaper than 150K. Not that many Townhomes in Wesley Chapel but looking off Cross Creek you will find numerous.

Commute would be 15-25 minutes depending on traffic. Your also about 10 minutes from shopping including the Wiregrass Mall which is at the intersection of HWY 56 and Bruce B Downs, places to eat, a nice Movie Theater, etc...

As you search, recommend watching the HOA and CONDO fees. Some places (most have both) add a couple hundred a month to your payment.
