Finding a community that is right for your family is an important part of the home buying process. From deciding on how much distance you want between you and your office, to making sure your kids are enrolled in the best schools available, there are many different factors to consider when choosing the location for your new home.
Close Commute to the Business District
Considering where your work is one of the biggest factors weighing on where you decide to make your home. You may want to be close to downtown Tampa or the Brandon/Riverview business district in order to minimize the time you spend in rush hour traffic. In addition to this, a shorter commute means that you can sleep later into the morning, or wake up and have breakfast with your family before work.
If you live right up the road from your office, you’ll also be able to swing by on your lunch break for a homemade meal. On top of that, you’ll have the chance to really reduce your carbon footprint and bike to the office, depending on how far your office is exactly. If these sound like benefits you’d like to take advantage of, Ventana offers close proximity to the business district and gives the opportunity to have more free time.
The Great Outdoors
Want to put some distance between you and the office? Getaway from the hustle and bustle and settle into the suburbs in a community like Copperspring, where you can unwind in the cabanas next to the community’s resort-style pool. When you’re ready to spend some time on the water, launch your kayak or canoe into the tributary that flows directly into the Anclote River and the Gulf of Mexico. If you want to skip the river trip and get straight to the saltwater, Lynwood, a community set a few blocks from the Gulf in Apollo Beach, is the perfect spot to wake up and dip your toes in the water.
If you’re the type of person to spend every chance you get making the most of the outdoors, there’s no better place to call home than Mills Bayou. Enjoy Florida’s natural wonders with opportunities to relax and unwind outdoors, including a number of spots for bird-watching and a dock for fishing. There’s something for every branch of outdoor enthusiast and homes for every family in this Ruskin community.
Top Rated Schools
Another one of the biggest factors in deciding where you should put your family is where you want your kids to go to school, as schools often accept students based on where they live. Set in Lutz, one of Tampa’s most popular suburbs, Briarwinds is located near some of the best schools in Tampa Bay, meaning your kids will have access to some of the best education possible.
Living close to school means everybody gets to sleep in later, but it also means spending more time together before your family parts ways for the day as you go to work and your kids head to school. In addition to this, your kids will get home from school faster, giving them more time to finish their homework. Plus, your kids will have ample opportunities to join local youth sports leagues or spend time with friends before it’s time for bed!
