I live in the Port Tampa Area. We have owned our present house for three years without problem. The neighbors really watch out for each other. The community is very small town like. The police stats for this area are lower than the average for Tampa. I am including the web site for Tampa Police--you should be able to find more information there.
I would like to also let you know about our house which is for sale. My Icon is a picture of the house. It is a beautiful 4/3 with two car garage. The house has been completely renovated. We have tile in all wet areas and wood floors in the dining and Living Room. The Master Bedroom is 12x 17 with a walk-in closet. All the Closets in the bedrooms have solid shelving -- no wire shelves. Fans have been installed in all rooms and the master has a remote. The Kitchen is all new and includes: Glass range top and overhead Microwave, Corian counter top with integrated sink, 26 Cu. Ft. Ref. with ice maker and built in filter, A custom built Hutch that hides the double garbage cans and provides space for chargers and cook books . All appliances are included. A Quit Elegance style makes this house feel like a home. NO flat paint was used. The colors are neutral--not white through out. The house is move in ready.
