Want to see a WOW kitchen? Check out 3624 Walsh Street!

Take a look at this GREAT bungalow I just listed at 3624 Walsh Street in Jacksonville, FL. In the heart of Historic Avondale, this fully renovated home shines with sophisticated updates. New windows, new kitchen, new roof, new bathroom, huge lot (70 feet wide!), fenced yard and quiet street are just a few of the incredible things this house offers.

There’s an airconditioned front room that would be perfect for a home office and an un-airconditioned back room that currently serves as the laundry room. The washer and dryer remain with the property along with all of the fabulous cabinetry on the back porch which offers tremendous storage. You can walk to Crossfit and Great Restaurants like Orsay, South, The Brick and Biscotti’s.

You are also steps away from great parks including Boone Park which has a great tennis program and Willow Branch Park.

There are grocery stores close by like Publix and Fresh Market in Brooklyn Station and you are only minutes from St. Vincents Hospital, a BRAND NEW Luxury YMCA and Downtown Jacksonville!

1463 Ingleside Avenue, Jacksonville, FL

We had a wonderful closing today on our listing at 1463 Ingleside Avenue in the lovely Avondale neighborhood of Jacksonville. It was one of those rare closings where both the buyers and sellers were at the closing table and both were very happy about the transaction. In our fast paced world, we often have MAIL AWAY closings (where neither buyer nor seller actually attends the closing) or closings where either the buyer or seller signs “in advance” and the closing only has one party in attendance.

The house was listed at $310,000 (and SOLD for $310,000) and is a lovely two story residence within walking distance to the shoppes of Avondale that has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, renovated kitchen, family room, large master bath, a guest house AND a 1.5 car garage — Wow! The buyers recognized the value and offered full price.

Thank you to our sellers and congratulations to the buyers — we look forward to having you in the neighborhood!

What Makes a Home Sell Fastest? Beauty, Bargain or Both?

In this “tough” real estate market, what makes a home sell really fast? Part of the answer is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but we also know that today’s buyers are especially skilled at scoping out good deals when they see them. The three houses listed below are a blend of beauty and bargain.

kitchen looking toward front door

The first house located at 1818 Elizabeth Place had a dynamite gourmet kitchen that was outfitted with the best of everything. Sleek wood cabinets, gorgeous granite countertops, Professional grade Viking appliances, tall ceilings, lots of storage and lots of light. It was our listing and the buyer stated that once the saw the pictures on the internet, they “knew” right away that this was it! The list price was $550K and the selling price was $535K.


4919 Ortega Forest Drive

The second house was a large home in Ortega Forest. Lifted straight out of the 70’s the home had not been occupied for some time but had been meticulously maintained the former owners despite the fact that it was vacant. Remember Papagallo and Lilly Pullitzer, the home seems to have been frozen in time from that era with lots of turquoise blue, lime green, terrazzo floors and matching furniture. It was a large pool home with over 3,000 SF and the buyers snapped it up within a matter of days. The list price was $395K and the house sold for $370K.

The last home also featured a perfectly renovated kitchen and a large deck in the back that’s perfect for entertaining. The home was small with only 2BR’s but perfectly redone with lots of room to add on over time. The sellers of this home purchased a home that’s part of an estate direct from the seller. The list price was $359,900 and the selling price was $339K.
