Prudential Network Realty
Where are you relocating from, and what is your timeframe for your house hunting leave? These answers can help us figure out the best time frame.
I can set you up with a Listingbook account which allows you access to the Multiple Listing Service. This gives you access practically to what I look at, and helps buyers decide on more specifics in advance, saving you time.
I've helped many military families move in and out of Mayport in my career and I am familiar with the Mayport base. i'm also active in Navy League, which as you may know is the "civilian" way to support the MWR.
Let me know what other info I can provide, and feel free to email me if you'd like me to set up your free Listingbook account.
Thanks & Happy New Year!
It usually takes 30 to 45 days to close on a loan on a home. I work with many military families relocating to Mayport. The latest time frame would be 2 months prior to your expected move date. With the large inventory of homes we have on the market now you should have a nice selection of homes to choose from when you are ready. There are many nice areas in the Mayport area. I would suggest to start looking now so you get an idea of what we have to offer. I can email you homes once I know what price range and some features you need in a home. If you need an excellent mortgage company that offers VA as well as other loans I can highly recommend a company. If you want to get an idea on our area I invite you to my website for information concerning schools, our area, businesses etc. Go to http://www.pattytrantham.vanguardgmac.com. If you want to look at homes in a certain area if you click on "homes daily" put in the price range, bedrooms, etc. it will show you homes that meet that search. The areas you would want to search would be Atlantic Beach, Southside, Ft. Caroline areas. These are all easy commutes to Mayport.
If you have any questions on if an area is near Mayport please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Jacksonville is a wonderful place to live. I look forward to helping you.
You can never begin too soon. The process of finding the right property, in the perfect location, being offered at an ideal price is one that can take time and involves both collecting vital information and becoming truly knowledgable of the area's housing market.
Learning about financing options, studying the local market availability & trends, and becoming familiar with the location and what is offers will consume time.
Buying a home should not be done with the additional stress of time limits. So start today and allow yourself the time to make the right decision.
I would say now, so as to be able to see what trends are developing. It will give you time to establish a trusting work relationship with an area Realtor. I'm a retired Navy man with extensive experience with the Mayport housing plus knowledge of the base as well. Feel free to visit my website at http://www.jacksonvillehomes4u.com and search for properties or request a tailored search from me for you.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
