Jacksonville Florida Real Estate

by Teddi McDonald

Are you thinking about buying property or renting in a great place with beautiful beaches, palm trees swaying in the breeze and mild weather year round? Then, a Jacksonville Florida real estate rental or purchase is just what you're looking for. Owning or renting Jacksonville real estate will allow you to live in an area that is a year round vacation playground. Not only are the beaches fabulous, but also the Jacksonville sports activities like golf and the cultural resources will keep you as busy as you want to be.

Jacksonville Florida real estate prices are reasonable ranging from as low as $40,000 and up. In fact you can find foreclosed real estate bargains!  There are many styles of Jacksonville homes for sale to choose from whether you're thinking about retiring there or just investing in a second home. Once you've found a realtor and purchased the Jacksonville Florida home of your dreams, picture yourself paddling a kayak through sparkling waters as a pod of dolphins surfaces nearby and flocks of pelicans soar overhead. Or perhaps you'll find yourself eating in one of the many fine restaurants found in the area, gazing across the river at the Jacksonville skyline while sipping your favorite drink.

Over 20 miles of wide white sand beaches are within a short 12-mile driving distance from the city. When you own or rent your Jacksonville Florida real estate, your new home will become a center for visiting the coast where you can enjoy all the exciting water sports and activities that the area has to offer. A brief list includes, fishing, swimming, scuba diving, water skiing, surfing, boating, and kayaking. One of the more interesting nearby beach towns is historic Atlantic Beach, founded over 100 years ago and located in a remarkably scenic area.

A most unusual historic area nearby is Kingsley Plantation located on a tiny barrier island. The plantation house is the oldest remaining in Florida. Nearby are a number of slave cabins built of bricks fashioned from crushed seashells. This is all set in a beautiful park with majestic trees and scenic vistas. Another point of interest along the beach area is a bird sanctuary located on Big Talbot Island. It’s a nationally known center for wildlife rehabilitation, serving as many as 2,000 birds. Big and Little Talbot Islands are mostly wetland preserves with beautiful untouched beaches and many trails. When you rent or purchase your Jacksonville Florida real estate, you’ll live close enough to enjoy this area often.

Downtown Jacksonville is very scenic and the views from across the river of the downtown skyline, enhanced by interesting modern architecture, are surprisingly nice – especially at sunset. Once you’re living in your Jacksonville Florida real estate rental, you’ll find that Jacksonville has all the amenities you could want including its own zoo and many historic buildings. If you’re a culture vulture, Jacksonville has a symphony orchestra along with Broadway shows, theatre, dance performances and opera. The Cummer art museum has a permanent collection of over 4,000 antiquities in particular, a collection of works by American artists as well as old masters.

Do you like to shop til you drop? There are great boutiques, expansive malls, an outlet center (includes such stores as Polo, Hilfinger, Guess – over 80 to choose from!), art galleries and much more. Perhaps you like to eat out. You’ll find plenty of restaurants with lots of seafood, Italian, American (steaks and prime rib) as well as Continental and Cajun. The bottom line is, purchasing or renting Jacksonville Florida real estate can bring you a whole new life style!
