VALRICO FL REAL ESTATE HOMES AND CONDOS FOR SALE
Just east of Brandon, you can find the quaint city of Valrico. This charming Hillsborough County community has a small town feel but has the modern conveniences we all enjoy. Large grocery chains and gas stations, banks, athletic fields for children and adults and fantastic schools because it is part of the Hillsborough County School District. It is such a growing community that new homes, schools and businesses are coming in all the time. With approximately 70,000 residents, it is not the biggest town in the Tampa Bay area, but it has a charm all its own. You can find older established neighborhoods, many new construction homes, and a lot of land to build a custom home upon. There are also a few condominium, town homes or apartment complexes. Many people choose to live here outside the big city and commute into Brandon, Tampa or Lakeland for work or social life. It is also a close drive to MacDill Air Force Base which makes it a popular place for military families to live because it is so much more affordable than many larger cities. It is easily accessible by I-4, I-75, the Crosstown Expressway and State Road 60.
