I am going to be relocating to the area, but first I am going to come down to check some things out, such as finding a suitable apartment.

I am in my mid 20s and a single male. I have a college degree, but I want to keep costs down initially, as I am going to be moving without a job. So because I am not sure where I am going to be working, I want to be central to St. Pete/Tampa.

I was thinking perhaps Emerald Pointe in St Pete because I can get a 1 BR for $550 and because its close to Gandy.

But I am looking for 1 or 2 other places to check out in case that doesnt seem good to me. Like I said, I want to keep it under $600 for a 1BR or studio, Centrally located, and Ideally have some young people living there (not a huge deal, but I understand some of the apt complexes were old 55+ communities that have been converted, which i would like to avoid)

Any input would be great

So, you aren't currently a student? If you are a student, there is another thread that is relevant to your question on the Tampa Bay page. You may want to ck thru the threads. There were a few places mentioned under Quiet Safe Affordable near USF. May pertain to you, may not. Happy Hunting!

I am not going to be a student in Florida. In a month I am going to be done with college forever . I checked and found that thread, but my situation is a lot different from his.

CK out the thread that mentions SoHo area apts. May be more in tune, however, most costly. Will keep my eyes open for you and guide you if I see something you might like. Lots of people on here with GREAT advice, including some realtors. You need to give a little more info on what and where you want to be, including cost parameters.

Good luck!
