Mu husband and I up until recently owned a condo on Long Boat Key and luckily sold it. We know Sarasota very well and were thinking of retiring there, except for the fact it is very expensive. The prices in Sarasota for some reason are still high.

We like some of the areas around Tampa, however we have only flown in and out of the airport which does not give an accurate picture of the areas!

Our profile:
We live in NJ;
I am 52, currently senior exec in large pharmaceutical firm in Human Resources and looking either find a corporate environment in Tampa or semi-retire with a beach job! My husband is 58 and is retired (lucky guy) but would like to find a p/t job. However the jobs are not crucial for us coming to Florida - -nice plus.

We are active and like restaurants, shop at Whole Foods, like a town that is active with things to do and see. We like the water and my husband are boaters or will be by the time we get there. We are looking for a house that is less than 5-6 years old, as we want something newer that we don't have to fix up. We are looking for a house with pool for 300-350K in a nice neighborhood (maybe gated) with a good downtown. We like funky/artsy.

Can anyone suggest several places near Tampa, in Tampa that might work for us with our budget.

Love the site and really appreciate the help!
