My husband and I are in search of a housing community similar to Lansbrook within the Tampa-St. Pete-Clearwater area. Any suggestions?

Asked by Xxxsurfergirlxxx, Murrieta, CA Sat Feb 23, 2013

We happened upon Lansbrook, Palm Harbor and fell in love! It had everything we wanted... except the prices are a little too high. We are looking in the $200-$300 range and want that same planned community, family friendly feel with newer/unique styled houses.

Trinity is the answer. Great schools and lovely communities. Trinity is just on the north side of the Pinellas/Pasco line about the 5 miles north of Lansbrook. You will get more home for your investment. The below link will take you to some homes that are currently available for sale in Trinity.…

Zipcode 33618 is "old carrollwood" in North Tampa. It is not a formal deed restricted community like Lansbrook, but the pride of homeownership is abundent and people have taken good care of their homes over the years. As with most "established neighborhoods", you will get a house here or there which is not taken care of, but those dont last long. Finding the spanish meditranian style is something I can accomplish for you I am pretty sure, but it will take a more detailed discussion and I am ready to listen when you and / or your husband are ready to talk. I need to know details such as are you paying cash, or will a mortgage be needed. If a mortgage is needed, have you gone through a pre apprval process with anyone, if not, would you need a short list of professionals I have worked with? Are you truly fixed a maximum price you want to pay, or monthly payment. Some communities where we may find the "just right" home could have an HOA. There are more questions and details, but I do not want to bore you until you are ready. Thank you! Have a wonderful search, no matter who you choose to represent your real estate interests.

There are few master planned communities in the Clearwater-Tampa-St. Pete area. They are a bit spread out from each other so knowing what you will be doing, such as employment or schooling, will help narrow down areas.

You could go a little more north and look at the Trinity area. It was one time part of New Port Richey but they have separated themselves not just by name but as a city. There multiple newer construction subdivisions that make-up this community. In Tampa the first community to look at is Westchase. While a little older build - it is very, very popular. Newer communities include Seven Oaks and Meadow Pointe, both in Weshley Chapel area. Tampa Palms in the New Tampa area. Then in Valrico/Brandon - you may like Fish Hawk or Bloomingdale. I would love to help answer any questions you might have - please feel free to contact me directly.

There are MANY golf course communities that would meet this criteria. The prices will increase as you get closer to the Gulf or approach St Petersburg. Value wise, Lansbrook has a lot to offer.
Now if you are not a golfer, you have many, many more planned communities from which to choose. The community most appropriate for you will depend on your family composition and lifestyle preferences.
