1257 Edgewood Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32205

When I saw this house pop up as a new listing for only $199,000 day before yesterday in Avondale, I knew it would be gone in a minute.  I was right, it’s already under contract.

I’ve got buyers coming in this weekend from South Carolina and I called the listing office to make an appointment for Sunday afternoon. They called back a few hours later to tell me they had two written offers in hand. The house is listed as a 3br/2.5 bath home with approx. 1,960 square feet and  offered by Doris Arnold of Watson Realty.

Why not hire us to be on the lookout so you don’t miss great opportunities like this one? We’ve got our eyes wide open, ears to the ground and notice great deals like this right away. But there is a catch……you have to be ready to act!

This is a short sale and banks require pre-approval letters with short sale offers so call your lender, get prequalified and then call us at 904-252-5181. You’ll be the next one in line for a great opportunity like this!

We specialize in Avondale, Ortega and Riverside and offer no pressure evaluations of how much your house is worth or can help you snag a great deal like this one on Edgewood Avenue.

4250 McGirts Blvd. - Exterior Front

If you’ve been patiently waiting to snag a great real estate deal, then your wait has ended. The house located at 4250 McGirts Blvd, is a foreclosure and an amazing buy. Reduced by another $20K today to the incredible price of only $909K, this is the best buy on the St. John’s river right now. Listed by Duval Realty, the house is over 4,000 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 4 and a half baths, huge fireplace, screened in porch, large laundry room, big piece of property, three car garage and a private dock, this house is a steal.

It does need some updating, but at this price, there’s plenty of room built in for the needed repairs.  In my opinion, just changing the exterior color to a more neutral tan with white trim would totally transform this house and give it immediate equity.

Save HUGE amounts of money on your Property Taxes!

Categories: Buyers, Deals, Deals, Deals!, The Real Estate Process-How Does this work?
Posted on June 21st, 2011

Take It With You - It's Your Money!

In a post I wrote some time ago, I talked about Amendment One or Property Tax Portability. In a time of sagging real estate prices, there continues to be some GOOD NEWS in Real Estate.

If you have lived in your home for a long time (let’s say 10 years or more), there is likely a difference between the assessed and market values of your home due to the Save Our Homes Amendment (Amendment 10) which has limited the increase in the assessed value of your home to 3% or the CPI (whichever is less) since it was passed in 1992.

If you are one of the lucky people who has benefitted from this difference in value (referred to as deferred value), when you SELL, you can carry or “port” this difference with you to a new homestead in the state of Florida.

Effective as of January 2008, Amendment One was intended to “unlock” the real estate market and enable people who had been in their homes a long time and who had accumulated substantial property tax savings to take it with them or “port” it to a new homestead so they could sell but continue to enjoy lower property taxes.

I recently had the pleasure of working with a customer who had accumulated the maximum allowable port ($500K) who was able to apply that amount to a new residence and realize SUBSTANTIAL savings on their property tax bill. The customer did not know about Property tax portability and was, of course, DELIGHTED to learn about this amazing benefit! Click here for a table with examples  of how Portability works.

It pays to work with realtors who know not only the latest statistics of the market but also other facets of the market that can save you money!

Gone in a Day! Is the Real Estate Market improving in Avondale?

1463 Ingleside Avenue, Jacksonville, FL

1463 Ingleside Avenue - Living Room

 

Sometimes, it takes the right mix of price, beauty and well….price to make a property sell quickly. Our new listing at 1463 Ingleside Avenue was on the market for less than a week when we received an offer.

 The house had previously been listed for sale by owner at a much higher price as the seller struggled with whether or not to pursue a short sale. After consulting with us and learning that the property value would necessitate a short sale, the sellers agreed to the price we recommended, we had professional photographs made, entered the house into the Multiple Listing Service and received an offer in a matter of days!

The list price of the house is $310K or $158 per square foot. The house has tall ceilings, a renovated kitchen, one car garage and darling guest house. Most notably for an older home, this has both a family room AND a large master bathroom — almost unheard of for an older home in Avondale. The seller of this home has great taste and has done wonders for the home in terms of style! From the moment you walk in the door until you finish in the guest house, you are convinced that this is a very special property.

If you’d like more information about any of the great homes in the Avondale, Ortega or Riverside neighborhoods, please give Allison Steilberg or Caroline Powell of the Avondale A Team a call. Allison’s number is 252-5181 and Caroline’s is 463-1898. Our website address is www.allaboutavondale.com. Come visit!
