Jacksonville’s intown neighborhood of Avondale is hot! We recently sold two of our bungalow listings in the neighborhood in the first week that they were listed. The first home we listed and sold was 1303 Edgewood Avenue South. It was just about 1,800 square feet with three bedrooms, 1.5 baths and a renovated kitchen. The roof was brand new and there was a small family room. The asking price was $250K and the home sold for $245K just last week.

1332 Belvedere Avenue, Avondale - Got a contract in the First Week!

Last week, we listed another great bungalow at 1332 Belvedere Avenue. This house is on a great street in Avondale and is  just about 1,500 square feet. It’s got three bedrooms, two full baths (the second full bath in Avondale is hard to find), newer roof, all hardwood floors, loads of windows, one and a half garage, large laundry room and a huge wrap around porch. Listed last Monday, we had a fully executed contract by Saturday.

Both of these homes were beautifully updated but the price was also right. If you’ve got a home to sell and it’s below $300K, please call us right away – there are lots of buyers out there looking!

1257 Edgewood Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32205

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.

Don’t Miss Your Window of Opportunity in Avondale or Ortega!

This is YOUR window of Opportunity

This is YOUR window of Opportunity

If you’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for just the right house, just the right price or just the right interest rate, you’d better stop waiting!  23 percent (17 homes) of the 74 properties that have gone under contract in the Avondale, Ortega and Riverside neighborhoods in first quarter of 2012, sold within 30 days of being listed.

If you increase the days on market to  60, the number jumps from 17 to 29 homes sold and accounts for a shocking 40% of the sales! That’s a pretty high percentage!

As a buyer, you’ve had nothing but time on your hands. LOTS of houses to sniff around at, PLENTY of time to decide if you’re REALLY ready to buy and LOADS of time to drive your real estate agent crazy as you look at house after house after house!

I’m here to tell you (you heard it here first) that the time is NOW. Interest rates WILL NOT remain this low forever. INVENTORY is low in certain neighborhoods like Avondale. The good (renovated or dirt cheap) houses are going UNDER CONTRACT quickly. So, if you’re one of those buyers who’s been circling and circling and circling – it’s time to get off of the merry go round and put your money on the table.

Click here to see a list of homes that have recently been listed and give us a call at 904-252-5181 if you see something you like! But you better hurry — they might sell quickly!

Caroline and I specialize in Avondale, Ortega and Riverside and can guide you to getting a great deal in the neighborhood.
