We are 9 days into the New Year, and there is already much to be excited about!

Real estate is hopping!  Throughout the year, market statistics have improved across the board in every category.  Lender mediated transactions (short sales) are declining, while the prices of those homes have risen  New inventory, days on market, and months supply have all seen decreases.  Pending sales, average price, and properties sold have all seen positive gains.  Some homes are even receiving multiple offers and selling over list price!

As we begin a new year, I look forward to sharing more Things to Do and, as always, welcome your comments or suggestions.  Have a blessed New Year!


July 4th Fireworks

Happy 4th of July!  If fireworks are in your plans, there’s no better place to see them than downtown Jacksonville, Florida.

Fireworks can be viewed from both the Northbank and the Southbank.  Come early, as both the Acosta and Main Street bridges will be closed during the display.  You may also come by boat; docking will be first come, first serve.  Both the JTA Skyway and the Marine Taxi will be running this evening.
