Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in June – Inventory is Tight! Now is the Time to Sell

“Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart.” Zig Ziglar

A little bit of Zig can brighten any day. The market stats for June from the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors brightened my day. Pending sales for the last 4 months are the highest we have seen. There were 2,741 contracts written in June which is 4% more than last June. Davidson Realty’s sales are up more than 12% over the first half of 2016. (more…)

“Every man’s life is a fairy tale written by God’s fingers.” Hans Christian Andersen

My husband’s life truly is a fairy tale thanks to an organ donor. We are celebrating 9 years since Jim’s transplant and we count our blessings and friends every day.

Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in December – Trulia Names Jacksonville #1 on Hottest Real Estate Markets to Watch in 2017

“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.” Jim Rohn

I mentioned last month that Realtor.com is predicting Jacksonville to be the 6th most improved market for 2017. Trulia posted an article “10 Hottest Real Estate Markets to Watch In 2017” and selected Jacksonville, FL number one. Trulia said “Why is it so appealing? First, there are serious job opportunities. Jacksonville posted a 3.8% job growth rate in 2016, which makes it one of the healthiest markets for employment opportunities in the state. Second, there’s an increasing influx of people — which contributes to the area’s very high ratio of inbound home searches on Trulia by out-of-towners versus outbound searches by locals looking to leave.” It makes perfect sense to me that people would want to live in our beautiful area.

Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in November – Realtor.com Forecasting Jacksonville as 6th Most Improved Market of 2017

“Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection’’ Winston Churchill

Reflecting on 2016, I remembered new relations with Cuba, several terrorist attacks, the Benghazi investigation, Wikileaks, Hurricane Matthew and the Presidential election. If you are a sports fan, Alabama won the College Football playoffs, Denver won the Super Bowl and then Peyton Manning retired. There were Olympic games in Rio, the USA won the Ryder Cup, and the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. It was an eventful year. (more…)
