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!
The real estate team of Caroline Powell and Allison Steilberg The sold properties are: single family homes at 4620 Algonquin Avenue and 4652 Ortega Blvd and a condo at 1661 Riverside Avenue in Riverside. The pending sales are: 3022 St. John’s Avenue — this will close next week, 1465 Edgewood Circle, 1769 Glendale Street, 1463 Ingleside Avenue and 3527 Riverside Avenue. We have one condo that’s a pending sale at Beau Rivage – a very nice building on St. John’s Avenue.
Other members of the Avondale office are similarly busy so it begs the question, are we in a real estate recovery? If you’re thinking of selling, there are LOTS of buyers out there looking for homes. Interest rates are still at historic lows and there’s a lot of pent up demand for housing.
A word of caution, if you want to sell, it’s imperative that you PRICE YOUR PROPERTY CORRECTLY and do everything you can to put the house in prime showing condition. Clear out all th clutter, invest in some fresh paint, do a clean out of the yard, closets and garage — today’s buyers are picky. They will buy a property at a fair price only if it looks great with updated kitchen and baths or if it’s a “distressed” property and is a BARGAIN BASEMENT STEAL!

Over the past four weeks, five Ortega Waterfront Homes have been put under contract. Four of them had been on the market for a long time (over a year). The fifth one is a private sale (one of the agents in our office was working with a waterfront buyer and knew of someone who was willing to sell). She contacted the person, got permission to show the house and, voila, a deal was made!
All of these sales are active contingent which means that there’s something left to do before the status gets changed to pending. This could be home inspections or financing approval.
All five transactions had either Prudential Network Realty as the listing agent or the selling agent.
If you’ve been thinking of buying Ortega waterfront, you might want to hurry, looks like the inventory is coming down!
It has been a LONG time since a property was sold almost the day it was listed. In fact, it’s been a VERY LONG TIME since properties were selling shortly after they were listed. Just yesterday, however, a home in Ortega sold after having been on the market for only 21 days.
Listed on 9/17/09, the home has 3BR/2BA in 1,631 SF on a 50 x 125 SF lot. The house had a big two car garage and a really beautifully updated master bathroom. The house is located in Ortega which is a quick commute to downtown or the Naval Air Station just down the street. The house sold for cash — no financing involved and the selling price was about $145 per square foot. Click here to see a list of other homes in the area from $100 – $300K.
