Top 5 Reasons People Move to Northeast Florida

July 28, 2022


With the help of the pandemic and the onset of work-from-home life, more people are moving to Northeast Florida than ever before. Simply drive through all the beautiful neighborhoods and see how special this area is. “Northeast Florida has it all! It provides the perfect setting to enjoy time with family and friends while providing plenty of opportunities to try new things,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. 


1. Water

While living near the ocean is a dream for many, residents of Northeast Florida have the privilege of living just miles from the beach and have the added bonus of living close to the St. Johns River and Intracoastal waterways. This abundance of water provides countless opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. 


2. Weather

Alongside the beautiful beaches attracting people to Northeast Florida is the weather. While it gets colder than parts of South Florida, the average annual temperature is still 70 degrees in Jacksonville. Mild winters and balmy summers make Northeast Florida weather basically perfect. With an average of 221 sunny days per year, what more could you want?


3. Financial 

Your hard-earned money stretches further in Florida. As one of a handful of states in the United States with no state income tax or estate tax, living in Northeast Florida has many financial benefits. With so many communities and various housing options, finding a home that fits your budget is a breeze.  


4. Sports

If you are a sports fan, Northeast Florida is the place for you! Downtown Jacksonville is home to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, and Jacksonville Iceman. Travel south to Ponte Vedra Beach to visit The Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass, one of the world’s most renowned golf courses and home of the annual PGA tour stop, The Players Championship. Grab some friends and get some tickets, the sports scene is thriving in Northeast Florida. 


5. Location

Northeast Florida is uniquely located just a short drive away from many exciting and historic destinations. In just two hours, you can visit Orlando, to the south, or Savannah, to the north. Destinations like Charleston, Atlanta, Miami, and Tampa are ideal if you are looking for a fun road trip. 


It is clear to see that Northeast Florida is special. If you are interested in calling Northeast Florida home, call the real estate experts at Davidson Realty today at (904) 940-5000.

Davidson Takes on the Jaguars!

Jaguars 005I know we aren’t the only people ready for football and excited to support the Jags! The Davidson Companies have a three year season ticket contract for four Jaguar tickets and we love coming up with new ways to use them. Last year we did a drawing at our sales meetings for the tickets – two went to agents and two to the staff. This year, the partners (Sherry Davidson, Jim Davidson, Rick Pariani, and Ed Gil) are using the tickets to spend more time with our agents and staff. Each partner has picked two games to take the employees of their choice to. What could be better than bonding over football and beer?

Jaguars 020We are also using the tickets to get more blood donors to participate in our upcoming Blood Drive. If you come out and give blood on October 18th between 10:30 am and 3:30 pm your name will be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to the Jaguar/Houston Texans game at Everbank Field on November 27th! The Blood Drive will be hosted outside Davidson Realty’s office building.  

Jaguars 013The pictures are from the Jaguars vs. Tennessee game yesterday. Rick Pariani and wife Susan had a blast with agents Pauline and Woody Cake. They had a great time watching the Jags win!
