Help the community by answering this question:


If schools are important, I recommend going to either Clay County or St Johns. This is just my opinion having experienced living in zip code 32216 with my two girls. We moved from California. Jax is beautiful, but i don't believe they have quality schools. Just an opinion.

Hi Katrina,

You may be best served by renting in an apartment complex until you are able to buy.

Even if you are not able to get a typical mortgage, you may be able to get a NACA mortgage with no money down and 4% interest! Take a look:


It may take a few months to get qualified and in the meantime rent in a complex or you need to be very careful about renting from individual owners because some are in foreclosure and you will have to move again or allow showings to buyers in a Short Sale.

All the best,
Alma Kee

If you're looking to rent please try the southside. Stay away from the others. The beach side is very nice.
