Why is Woodmere Street near Avondale so popular all of a sudden?

In the last few weeks, a waterfront home located at 1933 Woodmere has sold and two more on the same street are under contract. Why the sudden interest in Woodmere? In my opinion, it’s because it’s one of the few places in Jacksonville, FL near the historic district of Avondale that you can buy riverfront real estate for under a million dollars.

What do you get for your money? The home that sold had approx 3,900 sf of living space with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The most compelling part of this house was the fact that it had dramatic downtown skyline views. Although it was newer construction with good “bones”, most people felt it needs substantial cosmetic updating.

The home at 1697 Woodmere went under contract in only 12 days with the current listing but it was listed recently for 6 months at higher prices, then taken off the market and re-listed. Once it was re-listed, it went under contract almost immediately. This home, like the others, needs updating.

So….if you’re looking for waterfront under a million, you’d better look somewhere other than Woodmere — it’s all GONE!
