My husband & I are moving to the Tampa area soon & are trying to find neighborhoods to start looking for houses. Any suggestions? We do not have any kids so we are looking for an area with young families or couples where you can get a decent amount of square footage for your money.

Any advice would really help. Its so hard to relocate when you dont know the area at all.

Thanks!

Try Palm Harbor or any surrounding area in North Pinellas County. Very residential, very family oriented and lots to do. You are never more than 10 minutes from the coast. Decent houses run for 150 and up but more commonly around the 175-250k range.

Hi there. There are many great neighborhoods for young families. Let's see where will you guys be working? You probably want to be within a decent driving time to your job sites since roads do get quiet busy here during rush hour traffic! What will be an acceptable time frame for you to travel to and from work? What price range are you looking in? All these factors will play a major role to determine where you should "start" your search. Once you give me more info I can direct you in some great neighborhoods. Moderator cut: ..

Default Neighborhood Reviews

Depending on what you are looking for there are tons of choices. I have included a link from our local magazine called Creative Loafing that highlights some of their insight into different areas in the Bay area.

I hope this helps!

It's difficult to reply with vague search criteria, but to start with... In the North area, look at Seven Oaks in Wesley Chapel; in West Tampa, look at Westchase. In Southshore, the Riverview area has popped with foreclosures and short sales, so there are some good bargains to be had. There are many other suburban communities where the price per square foot is lower as well.

Write us back and tell us what you think you would like (newer- or older- house, condo, townhouse, number of bedrooms & baths, parking, amenities, your budget, near the beach or not, etc.) and we can give you more and better choices.
