New communities are being developed left and right in Tampa and the surrounding areas. There are plenty to choose from. Most of these communities are surrounded by nice conservation area that is mostly populated by tall cypress trees. These trees dominate the cypress creeks and wetlands all over Florida and they are a big part of its water resource.
Amongst the fastest growing cities in the area are New Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Lutz, Land O Lakes, Odessa and Trinity to name a few. A new community, Mira Bay in Apollo Beach, consists of several home designs for people who loves the relaxing experience of coastal living.
CDD and DEED RESTRICTIONS
There are different types of communities around the Tampa area that you can choose from, most of which are “Deed Restricted.” Deed restrictions offer the home owners an advantage because it protects the value of their homes. They are enforced by the Home Owners Association (HOA) and annual fees generally run between $8.00 to $400.00 depending on the community. 99% of these subdivisions are gated for added security.
A community or subdivision could also have what is called a CDD (Community Development District). These communities separate themselves from the others as it is built around a huge conservation area and/or golf course. They usually have a nicer entrance, beautiful landscapes, a huge club house, pool area, tennis, exercise room and playgrounds that are shared by the homeowners. CDD cost varies per community and they range from $700 to $2500 per year.
The CDD works in conjunction with the HOA as regulatory agencies that oversee the communities’ basic infrastructure.
