Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in June – Have you ever wondered if you can use funds in your IRA to buy a home?

July 27, 2018

 | 

An article in USA TODAY by Matthew Frankel gives a good and simple answer. “First-time homebuyers can take out as much as $10,000 from their traditional IRA penalty-free, although it will still count as taxable income. And if your spouse also has a traditional IRA, they can take out $10,000 as well.

 

Furthermore, the homebuyer doesn’t necessarily have to be you. You can use the money to help your child, grandchild or parent buy a home as well. The IRS has a liberal definition of what a “first-time” homebuyer is. Basically, you must not have owned a principal residence within the last two years.” A Roth IRA can be used also, but the rules are slightly different.

 

Our local real estate market is still looking strong in the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for June. There were 3,868 new listings in June, an increase of 13.4% from last June and 8.1% year to date, which is very positive since the homes available for sale have been very low.

Davidson Realty Picks: Favorite local golf courses

July 23, 2018

Posted by in News

Northeast Florida attracts people for a number of reasons—our beautiful beaches, great job opportunities, and of course, breathtaking golf courses. The First Coast is home to more than 70 public and private courses, offering golfers the chance to choose their favorite based on quality greens, challenging fairways, superior service, lovely scenery or the all-important 19th hole.

 

I asked several golfers at Davidson Realty what their favorite course is and why. Here’s what they said.

 

Sherry Davidson, President

Favorite Course: King & Bear in World Golf Village, St. Augustine

It feels very private because there are not as many homes on the course, and with the set-backs, you don’t feel like you are playing in someone’s back yard. There is only one time you have to cross a road in your golf cart and it is in a neighborhood with only a few homes. The course can be difficult from the longer tees but the ladies tees make it very fun for all levels of players. It is a beautiful course.

The 2nd quarter was very good with $36 million in closings.

Jacksonville Real Estate Trends in May – An increase in new listings which is very good news!

June 26, 2018

 | 

The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for May show an increase in new listings which is very good news. There were 3,797 new listings in May which is up 9% over last May and we are up by 7% year to date.

 

Even with the increase in new listings, the inventory of homes for sale is down 9% from last May to 8,398 properties. There are 3.4 months of supply of inventory which is down 13% from last May. A balanced market is 5 to 6 months of inventory. The shortage of homes for sale is most acute in the price ranges under $300,000.

 

There is plenty of buyer demand. There were 2,996 contracts written in May which is an 11% increase over last May. Pending sales are up 6% year to date.
