It's a great time to build on a Waterfront Lot in Jacksonville

Posted by Brad Officer on Friday, June 4th, 2010 at 11:47am.

What a time to build your own waterfront home in the Jacksonville area!

Shopping for a waterfront home in and around Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra can be fun, difficult, and frustrating.  It's tough when you are looking for very specific type of home, layout, or area, and you just can't get all the puzzle pieces to line up.  If this is you, it's time to consider custom building the right home on the right lot in the right area!

Building a Home is a Bargain right now:

Builders, designers, and architects all say that right now is a great time to build.   The leading contributors to this:

  1. Unemployed workers and under-employed workers provide cheaper than average labor cost.
  2. Builders are more aggressive on bidding to get the job as their backlog of work has drastically slowed.
  3. Construction materials are available at bargain prices.
  4. Property cost is for sale at bargain prices as Sellers finally start getting serious about selling.

All the planets are lining up except for one....financing.  The banks are very tight with their money in every price range and especially in the Jumbo loan category.  That being said, the majority of this years Ocean Front home sales in Duval and St Johns County have been cash purchases.

If you have the funds, this is a great time to custom build in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, or Clay County.
