Port in the Storm

May 9, 2024

 | 

For the past eight years, Davidson Cares, the charitable arm of Davidson Realty, has been a beacon of support for non-profits through Jim Davidson’s Annual Clay Day fundraiser. Their remarkable fundraising efforts, totaling almost three-quarters of a million dollars, have left an indelible mark on the local community. When selecting charities for its events, Sherry Davidson, president of Davidson Cares, focuses on finding charities that improve the local community and serve vulnerable populations, especially children in need, a cause that the late Jim Davidson was deeply passionate about. One of those charities, the Port in the Storm Homeless Youth Center, is a testament to the transformative power of caring.

 

Davidson Cares was inspired to contribute to the Port in the Storm Homeless Youth Center after one of its Clay Day sponsors, MasterCraft Builder Group, completed an emergency renovation of the facility after a flood caused mass damages just days before Christmas.

 

“We added Port in the Storm Homeless Youth Center as one of our charitable causes in 2022 after seeing the impactful work they were doing,” says Sherry Davidson, president of Davidson Cares. “The organization’s mission is so important, and the cost of providing those services is endless. Davidson Cares is proud to help them continue that work.”

“To be in your children’s memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today.” ― Barbara Johnson

 

Wishing all the mothers out there a Happy Mother’s Day!

 

The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors (NEFAR) market review continues to show the median sales price of $360,000 consistent with last month. It was 8.2% higher than last year.

 

There were 2,442 closed sales, which is up 23.5% from last month and down 15.8% from last year. These numbers are affected by the volatile mortgage rates. The average rate on a 30-year mortgage had remained below 7% since early December and began rising in February. According to Freddie Mac, the average rate on a 30-year mortgage rose to 7.1% from 6.88% last week, the highest level since late November. Properties that went under contract in late December, January or early February closed in March.

Posted by in News

Overwhelmed by the beauty that Northeast Florida has to offer? We’ve made you a list of what we believe to be some of the best ways to experience the outdoors, with options spanning across St. Johns County:

 

Kayak

First up, kayaking! This activity is family-friendly and great for all skill levels. Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, taking a guided kayaking tour through the waterways of St. Augustine can be a blast. Immerse yourself in the history of downtown while paddling along the bayfront, or float through a freshwater creek surrounded by Florida’s wildlife. Think you’re ready to embark on your own adventure? Rent a kayak for the day, and explore the area on your time! Checkout Kayaking St. Augustine for more information on boat guided tours and kayak rentals.

 

Paddle Boarding

On that same wavelength: Paddleboard through Anastasia State Park! While some consider paddleboarding to be slightly more difficult than other water-based activities, it is still absolutely beginner friendly. In fact, Anastasia Watersports shares that, “No experience is necessary to enjoy this fun and popular activity.” So, what are you waiting for? Glide through breathtaking scenery of Salt Run and maybe even pass a Floridian critter or two like dolphins and osprey, all while improving your balance, of course! Take a look at the Anastasia Watersports website to explore your different paddle boarding options.
