Jacksonville’s Real Estate Trends for May Continue to Show Pending Sales are Still Booming!

“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.

The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for May are extremely positive. The pending sales in May of 2,839 are 6% more than last May and we are up 5% year to date. The last 3 months our totals are higher than the number of transactions in the peak of the market in 2005 and 2006. We are continuing to see strong buyer activity. (more…)

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…)

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” — Albert Schweitzer

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to think about all we are grateful for. I want to express my gratitude to all the companies that supported our first annual Shooting for SAYS event. Because of you, Davidson Cares raised $30,000 for St. Augustine Youth Services. SAYS does a tremendous job working with boys that have suffered severe abuse and neglect. Please save the date for our 2017 shoot which will be on October 19th. (more…)
