Or, if you’d rather stay in, then enjoy a beautiful riverfront view from nearly any room in the house. Gather some friends for dinner and everyone can hang out in the open “cook’s kitchen” or take the boat out for a sunset cruise and enjoy the sparkling lights of downtown Jacksonville as day becomes night.

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.

Prime Waterfront Parcel FINALLY gets snapped up!

woodmere waterfrontBack in September 2009 (nearly 7 months ago), I noticed an amazing price reduction on a fantastic piece of waterfront property on Woodmere Road which runs between Avondale and Ortega.

The price of the land had gone from over a million to the 900’s and when I wrote about it (see that post here) , it had been dropped to $675K. I thought it was a great deal at $675K but apparently the general public didn’t agree and the land has remained available until just a few days ago.

Last week the price got dropped AGAIN, this time to $549K and apparently that finally caused someone to pull the trigger and the parcel is now under contract.

WOW! What  a Deal! A buildable waterfront lot in a great neighborhood for only $549K — that, folks, was a deal! Stay tuned and I’ll lewt you know what it closed for.

To see the full listing for the property, click here. There is a house on the property, but I walked through it and don’t see any redeeming value — let’s see what the buyer does.
