Lhfaith79, based upon your question, providing you with some guided information will be pretty vague. Why? because your question is pretty vague. The actual distance from Spring Hill to Tampa is approximately 38 miles, but, the actual driving time is much greater. From Spring Hill you could live in a radius that contains a number of gated communities. Next, your price point was not disclosed, so the best answer to you at this writing is that you can find a gated community within 45 minutes of Spring Hill in your price point. Next , are you seeking a gated rental community or a gated community that you will be purchasing a home? If you are thinking about purchasing, then your first step would be to become pre approved for a mortgage. Then create a list of features/amenities that are important to you especially if you will be purchasing a home. Lastly, where do you actually want to be within driving distance of (what is the address or general area)? You can obtain some pretty fantastic assistance if you disclose what you are seeking and be more specific.

You will need to work with an "approved lender" to get the bond money. You can find the approved lenders and the maximum income allowed, by selecting the county from the drop down box and the number in your household:…
