Thank you for your service, Mr. Tovar. Fish Hawk Ranch is a very popular community among military and their families. It is an easy commute with the Crosstown Expressway and there are many different housing options available in your price range. If you and your wife are younger and want to be closer to nightlife and things to do, another popular area, closer to the base, is South Tampa. There are plenty of options for you to choose from in the Tampa area. I grew up here, so if I can assist in any way with your move or helping you get acquainted with or connected in Tampa, please let me know! You can reach me by call or text at (813)240-7760 or on Facebook at facebook.com/chrissynieveskw. Thanks! :)

You''re going to love living in Tampa! I have a nephew that served in Iraq, so I really like to support our military families.
Just something to think about...
For the $1300 you're looking to spend monthly, you could afford to buy a $150,000 property--a single family home or a townhouse--whatever suits your family's needs better.
Interest rates are still low, and it's a great time to buy.
Please let me know if I can help.

Just so you know, some Rental listing Realtors will only agree to give a renter's Realtor as little as $50. You may have some difficulty finding an agent to donate her time and gas to assist with finding a rental.

Also you MUST be VERY cautious when renting because we have scammers that will rent out property they do not even own.

One recent bank owned listing was rented out to an unsuspecting tenant and now the sheriff showed up at the door to remove those poor people who paid a scammer $3,900!

So I would highly recommend renting in an apartment complex until you're ready to be an owner. Otherwise you must verify the owner is not in foreclosure before renting and also every month thereafter.

We have Military Heroes money that may be able to give you up to $10k to buy a home, take a look:


All the best,
