Jacksonville Gated Communities With Best Amenities

Jacksonville is a desirable Florida city that isn’t short on equally desirable gated communities and neighborhoods. With a population north of 900,000 residents, the Jacksonville area is defined by 22 miles of pristine Florida beaches, an expansive urban park system, and some of the best golfing you’ll find anywhere in the country.

Best Neighborhoods in Jacksonville FL

Executive Summary / disclaimer:  "best" is subjective.  When looking for the best neighborhoods in Jacksonville, be careful who you listen to... everyone has an opinion, but it's absolutely subjective.  That being said - I'm a REALTOR and I've lived in 6 different homes in the Jacksonville area including St Johns county.  I've purchased additional homes that I've flipped or rented, so I have my opinion but I'm also privy to the information as to how many inquiries we have per location.  In addition, I have the intel on which locations resell the best.  One big tip if you are concerned about resale in the future = choose top school districts!  The list below is my opinion, does not necessarily include top school…

Should I Buy a Home in 2022?

Are we all missing a major home buying opportunity?  

From 2020 - early 2022:

In 2020 through early 2022, rates were low, very low.  Everyone knew it! 

Buyers knew it was an incredible opportunity to buy a home at record low interest rates.  The big benefit to record low rates was lower monthly payments.  HOWEVER - most home buyers I've ever known will typically buy the home that matches their desired monthly payment.  Not the other way around.... think about that for a moment.  

Sellers knew it was an incredible opportunity to sell their homes because MORE buyers could afford their home.  Essentially, this created an ideal market for price appreciation, and that is exactly what happened.

Swimming pools add value to your Florida home

DOES A POOL ADD VALUE TO YOUR HOME IN FLORIDA? 

Trying to determine the likelihood of getting a return on investment after building a pool for your home in Florida?  This question comes up often, and more often than not I believe the answer depends on several key factors.  

Key Factor #1:  Location of the Pool Home

Obviously you are researching info about building a pool for your home and you’ve landed on a Jacksonville Florida real estate website, so we are slightly biased to the value of a pool home in Florida.  I personally do not believe the impact of a pool is as great in the more northern / temperate climate states such as Tennessee, North Carolina, etc.  Florida on the other hand is nearly a year long pool use location.

Should I sell my house now or wait till corona virus is over

A lot of home owners with big plans are going through this internal debate right now. A lot of questions are starting to float around.  Here are some of the questions we've fielded:

Are people still buying homes during the Corona Virus Pandemic?

Should I sell now while prices are still high?

Are home prices going down because of Corona?

Should I wait till the Corona Virus is over to sell my home? 

I'll answer all of these independently, but to summarize my recommendation:  You should only sell now if you meet all or most of these bullet points:   

  • Your home is market ready:  It's tight, nothing left undone, it's super clean and decluttered, no outstanding maintenance, no "ugh" factor when a Realtor walks through with their…
