Bloomingdale MLS SearchNestled within the ever-growing Valrico Florida area lies the Bloomingdale Golf community. It is one of the largest communities in the Tampa Bay area, stretching out from Valrico into some areas of Brandon Florida and made up of over 40 neighborhoods and over 5000 individual homes. The Bloomingdale community can be easily accessed from a number of major roads in Valrico and is only a short distance from major highways and interstate systems. The Bloomingdale community lies within a special tax district. Special taxing districts allow members to share common expenses equitably by adding a special tax assessment to the property tax bill of each of the district members; this shared common expense pays for things such as community repairs, maintenance of common grounds, and improvements. The taxing district assessment is a mere $100 once a year, which has been the same flat rate that has been in effect since the special tax district was founded in the 1980s. Some things that the special tax district has worked on recently have been the community wide irrigation system, landscaping, and entry ways.
