Popular Jacksonville Southside Communities

Jacksonville Florida Jaguar Stadium

If you are looking for something in jacksonville FL then you will find it in Southside! The Southside area which is our zip code 32256 and 32246 is our more densely populated area! I don't know if it was a case "if you build it they will come"; but in Southside you have everything: malls, restaurants, shops, schools and office parks. This means you are not more than a few minutes from work, the movies, shopping for a birthday gift, a quick bite to eat, a romantic dinner or a fun night on the town.

Southside is home to corporate offices of Blue Cross Blue Shield, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bank of America, Deutsch Bank and more! Also you find the St Johns Town Center with Nordstrom, Apple Store,

I recently had a client contact their insurance company regarding a house they were interested in the Intracoastal West area of Jacksonville. The out of town insurance company said they couldn't insure the property because it didn't pass their sinkhole test! Well after 20 years helping people buy and sell their homes, I have to say this was a new one for me.

I have had home buyers concerned about mosquitoes, alligators, snakes and even one time our small lizards. But sinkhole?

I am by no means an expert and I gave the client information to contact the local geologist familiar with our area. But this is the information I was able to find online:

The Jacksonville Business Journal reports AV Homes has just bought 80 acres near the St. Johns Center. AV Homes is a developer of 55+ communities in the Orlando and Port St Lucie area. They are expecting to have this community up and going by 1st Quarter of 2015.

The reason for the purchase? The Florida division president, David Smith is quoted saying "The move is congruent with the city's stead popluation growth and strong home sales."

Jacksonville has always had a limited number of 55+ Communities for those wanting to own and not rent.

  • Sweetwater by Delwebb (Duval County)

  • Cascades (St. Johns County)

So I am sure the Jacksonville population will be happy to have another

what_is_title_insurance_-_and_didnt_i_buy_that_at_closing_720

Title insurance is an insurance policy to cover any losses if it turns out the seller of a property you purchased did not have clear title to do the selling.  Yes, indeed you did buy title insurance - but typically only for your lender.  You have to request and purchase a separate policy for yourself as the new homeowner.

Why Didn’t My Lender Tell Me?

It may have been stated in the loan forms that you were to read, but like much of the ‘boiler plate’ terms of a loan contract some of it just washes over the reader.  It is a lot of information to deal with, and often the buyer skims rather than reads in detail.

Shouldn’t My Realtor Have Told Me?

Yes, and no.  Homeowner title insurance is a voluntary item, even if it is a good idea.  It is

condominiums_-_apartment_convenience_with_some_benefits_of_ownership._923Let us take a closer look at the common questions one may ponder when they entertain the idea of purchasing a condominium.

Good Things

Convenience, no lawn maintenance, shared amenities.

Bad Things

Surrounded by neighbors, no lawn, sharing all the amenities.

But Wait…..

That’s right, some of the good things are also the bad.  The pool, if any, is shared.  You have to schedule private parties that need the big party room.

Some of the bad things are good.  You do not have the luxury of a private rose garden, but then you do not have to weed and mow and edge yourself.

Condo living is for people who do not mind hearing their neighbors through the next wall, above and below.  It is a comfortable space for people who travel a lot, have
