My team partner lives in Country Walk and is very happy there. Will you be stationed at MacDill? Your trip in and out of Country Walk could add quite a bit of time to your commute. You would either have to get onto State Road 54, which is currently a nightmare, or drive through the Meadowpointe community which is huge, and 30 mph, or go north and east, to get to Morris Bridge Road which takes you south to I-75. Be sure to do a test drive during rush hour, from any community you consider. The Wesley Chapel, New Tampa area is definitely growing. We will be experiencing lots of road work in the coming years, and probably a lot of growing pains in the meantime. But, we have some beautiful communities, many amenities, and a huge inventory to choose from at the moment!
I would be happy to help if you're not already associated with a realtor. My husband is retired from the Navy, so I understand the difficulties of finding a house from afar. Another consideration is, how long would you be in the area? Are you sure you would want to PURCHASE a home or if you'll only be here a short time, would renting make more sense. We also have a property management department, with rental properties.
