Where are all the houses in the 120-150 range? Looking at the areas what I call north tampa (north of downtown, south of 54, Hillsborough County) . Seems like everything is 50k ghetto foreclosure or $275k+. Where are the mid-markets? Nothing fancy, 3 bedroom with yard and garage, no pool, and not so close you can reach out and touch your neighbor.

I am sure that Carrolwood has lots of houses in that price range. Check out Northdale and Northlakes.

In most American cities, that is not mid-market. It's lower middle class in most cities, lower class in some, non-existent in a few.

For that price range, try "wholesale real estate" You can find a house in a nice area that requires some work. If you've ever watched Fixer+Upper, then you'll understand what you're buying.

The housing market is on an uptick. You're not going to buy a nice house in a nice neighborhood for a reasonable price. Start with the neighborhood first. My company buys and sells houses all over Tampa Bay. We buy some real messes, clean them up then sell them for a quick profit in order to buy more. It's a messy job, but we only rehab them if they just won't sell.

Ok so ignore my wording, what cities / neighborhoods should I be looking at for that price range?

You can easily find houses in that range in my area, nice houses. But, this may be too far from Tampa for your wants/needs.
