It's not hard to understand why homebuyers are looking at the Jacksonville Real Estate market. The climate, recreation, and job growth in North East Florida is hard to beat. Homes for sale in Jacksonville are very popular with buyers from around the country. Although it may seem like it's been forever since the Super Bowl was in Jacksonville, the city has not stopped building new homes since the big game. All of these factors continue to draw people and businesses to relocate to Jacksonville, making for a solid real estate market.
The abundance of land on the Southside of Jacksonville and on the Westside of Jacksonville has led developers to create some very desirable new neighborhoods. Along the J. Turner Butler corridor toward the beaches on the Southside, there is a large selection of homes for sale. The more popular neighborhoods on the Southside include Jacksonville Golf and Country Club, Deercreek Country Club, Deerwood Country Club, Hampton Glen, East Hampton, Hampton Park, Reedy Branch, Old Mill Branch, Pablo Bay, The Woods, and Timberlin Parc to name a few.
On the westside, Jacksonville's southern roots sometimes become a little more apparent. The development of the westside of Jacksonvlle, took off when the Cecil airfield base closed. Oakleaf Plantation is a DRI (development of regional impact) that has had tremendous sales. In fact, I get more buyers everyday asking about homes for sale in Oakleaf. Two other areas that buyers look at are Argyle Forest and Eagle Landing. Just email me what size home you need, and I'll get you set up on a property watch campaign where every time a new home comes on tha market you get the information emailed to you first.
Parents often struggle to find a home in a neighborhood with quality schools without having to settle for less of a home. That is the time to be using a Jacksonville real estate agent (like me!) who sells around 90 homes a year. I search everyday for homes for sale for my clients. Chances are I just did a search recently for another client for homes in your price range. To help out my buyers I had this custom tool made for my website, it's a map of schools and the FCAT scores for schools in northeast Florida. Just choose Duval for Jacksonville, St Johns County for Ponte Vedra Beach, and Clay for the Oakleaf and the Orange Park area. Drop me email with the area you are interested in searching and I'll email the best homes in your area by the schools you found.
The luxury home market has many options for upscale home buyers from privately gated estate homes on the St Johns River to modern executive style houses on the golf courses. Some of the most expensive homes in Jacksonville are located on the banks of the St Johns River. The views across the river from these homes is magnificent. Of course you have lots of choices of country clubs in Jacksonville, my favorites include Queens Harbour, Glen Kernan, and Epping Forest. Living at beach is another option, Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville Beach have miles of pristine, quiet beaches on the Atlantic ocean. Another option my luxury buyers also look at is the Jacksonville Luxury Condo market. The luxury condominium market in Jacksonville now has some special properties for sale.
Relocations are always tough. But relocating to Jacksonville will be easy when you choose the right realtor! There are so many choices and styles of homes in everyone's price range, you have plenty of homes to preview. In fact, relocation probably the most important time to have a real estate agent that really knows the market working for you.
The historical neighborhoods of Jacksonville like San Marco, Avondale, Riverside, Springfield, and Ortega are undergoing a revitalization. Many of the century old homes in these neighborhoods feature distinctive architecture and style. Thanks to renewed interest and government incentives, homes in these neighborhoods are being restored to their original splendor.
