Below is the transcript for Fishhawk Ranch overview:
Hi everybody, my name is Lance Mohr and I’m a real estate agent in Tampa, Florida and I’m doing these overview videos on the cities around Tampa because when you are buying a home there is nothing more important than deciding where to live. When I work with home buyers I don’t like telling people where they should live. What I like to do is ask a lot of questions to get an idea on what type of area you like.
Today I’m going to do an overview of Fishhawk Ranch in Lithia. Fishhawk Ranch is in the south part of Hillsborough County. It is off of Interstate 75 and about 8 miles to the east. The downfall is that it’s out there quite a ways – but there are a lot of pros about Fishhawk Ranch. First off, when it was built it was touted (even today) as the best place for families and it really is one of the most family friendly communities in Tampa Bay.. It has phenomenal schools; the elementary, the middle school and high school are all “A” rated. For people who work at MacDill Air Force Base, there is a bus that takes you to the base; which is a huge advantage to a lot of people so they don’t have to drive.
As far as families and kids go, the homes are all over the board. You can find starter homes all the way up to very high-end luxury properties by custom builders. The amenities for children are really off the chart. They are almost like being in a resort in Orlando. There is an aqua water park. There are multiple pools and tons of things to do like walking trails and biking trails. Every Friday and Saturday night at the pavilion (main area) they have different activities going on. There might be an art day. There might be a music festival. There are just tons of things for kids to do. There are tons of things for families to do and it is really, really nice.
One of the problems is that Lithia is sort of isolated and there’s really nothing else in Lithia but Fishhawk Ranch. You are quite a ways if you want to go to a movie or if you want to go to a restaurant. There are grocery stores, there are drug stores, there are restaurants in Lithia but there are not a lot of them. Most people who live in Fishhawk Ranch are going to drive to Brandon for shopping, restaurants, movies, etc.
If you have kids and you are looking for a really kid-friendly area I would definitely check out Fishhawk Ranch. It is a very nice place. It is very clean and people with kids love it. Depending on where you work Fishhawk Ranch may or may not be right for you.
If you have any questions about Fishhawk Ranch or the areas don’t hesitate to give me a call. I do these videos again because I want to make sure you pick the right area. The last thing in the world you want to do is pick a place to live and then after you buy the home you find out wow I’m in the wrong place. Then what do you do?
There’s tons of great information on my website. You can get information on school reports, crime reports, the lifestyle searches… If you want to know where different health clubs are, hospitals, restaurants, or schools you can look in the lifestyles search and it will tell you where everything are. It is really, really great. I also have a lot of educational videos in the tab under “videos”. If you are not familiar with Florida property taxes and you want to know how they work or maybe you are not familiar with what CDD fees are or newer homes – you definitely need to be familiar with them. If you need to know more about how short sales or bank-owned properties there’s tons of great information.
Don’t hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions. I would love to help you out and answer any questions you might have. Just go to the contact page of my website and either fill out a form and I will reply back or just give me a call. Have a wonderful day and I wish you the best of luck.
