Want to buy a Jacksonville Home?
You've found the right place!
We've made searching in the most popular locations within Jacksonville easy by creating quick links to those hot neighborhoods and hot locations. Many local residents and relocating home shoppers are using our site to search and buy a Jacksonville home, and we know we are doing a great job as we have so many return shoppers.
A few things to remember on your search:
You will need a mortgage pre-approval or proof of cash. We have several preferred loan officers we work with, so if you need a quick pre-approval, just send us an email and we will get you connected.
Location Location Location. Choose location first. You can always add on, improve, or mow it down and start over. You can never change the location, and location is what sells when you finally decide to resell it.
The good ones go fast. DO NOT LET GRASS GROW! If you find something you really like, chances are several other home buyers have found it too. In this market speed wins!
Low balls stopped working in 2009. There was a time and a place, but the market has turned 180 degrees from then. We are faced with limited inventory and bidding wars. So shop realistically within your price. (aka - Have a $500k budget, don't look at $1mm listings).
Be ready to pull the trigger. Get your pre-approval ready. Have cash on hand for a legitimate binder. Understand the purchase agreement terms and timelines BEFORE you find the house.
