The market in St Augustine has always been strongest on Anastasia Island. I have been a buyers agent since 1988 and here since 1993. My only advice is to visit the areas of the island in your price point and decide where you feel most comfortable. Most of the homes in Commodores Club are concrete block and well built by Palmetto Homes, a very reputable local builder. The neighborhood is well maintained, centrally located and has a pool and playground.
If you have more questions or wish to search our island properties which is 32080, please use my site.
As a real estate agent, property investor and fellow resident of Anastasia Island--you will absolutely love living in St Augustine! I have invested in local property here for close to 14 years, specializing in downtown and on the island--especially waterfront. We live on the intraocoastal--looking back at town--and couldn't be happier! Homes run slightly higher than other parts of Northeast Florida, as the quality of life and all that St Aug offers is head and shoulders above outlying communities.
The prices haven't seemed this affordable since I first moved here in 1996. Cute island houses start at about $200,000. Waterfront starts at $800,000. Townhomes and condos cheaper. Wish you lots of luck--email me if I might be able to help you!

The Commodores Club is nice but it is a neighborhood that is under valued for a reason. I have had several listings in that neighborhood and it is always a hard sale. Commodores Club will always be under valued then the rest of Anastasia Island. Short term rentals is NOT an option in this neighborhood.
The Island is already turning around for an investment. If you are looking for an investment you will be better off buying in another neighborhood on the island then the Commodores Club.
I hope this helps.
It's a good life,
