#1 Home Buyer Frustration:  Can't find a home that is updated, properly cared for, and priced appropriately.

Why is this so hard?

There are SO MANY home buyers currently shopping for homes, and they can't find a home.  They have cash in the bank for the down payment.  They have already been pre-approved for a mortgage and they have it in writing.  They are carrying around a checkbook to write a binder deposit the second they find the right house.  They've even engaged a professional Realtor.

On the FLIP side: I see SO MANY homes that have been on the market for over a year.  I've even seen homes on the market for over 1000 days on the MLS!  That's horrendous.

I love that I get to see so many great views on a near daily basis.  Why would you not want to wake up with this in your backyard?

This home is another great buy on the St Johns river in Jacksonville Florida.  Like so many riverfront homes that are closer to town, this one needs work....a lot of work.  Many of these homes were built in the 50's and 60's, but have solid construction.  They just need monster updating.

Jacksonville Real Estate Predictions

  1. The Jacksonville Real Estate market will continue to improve.
    • Improve means more sales, it does not mean increase in prices.
  2. Jacksonville real estate prices continue to decline.
    • Less declines in the low $100k - $200k range  (this price point is HOT!)
    • Faster and more declines in the $300k+ range
    • As unemployment in Jacksonville currently remains one of the highest in the country, and Jacksonville being one of the most over built and biggest price bubbles in the country, I don't believe we are out of the woods yet.
  3. Supply of houses for sale stays high.
    • Early spring to mid summer, I anticipate a flood of new listings based on many of my contacts.
    • Foreclosures are widely noted to be resuming and will start
