I moved to Jacksonville from San Diego California. I looked at the schools in St. Johns county and ultimately chose Cunningham Creek Elementary School in Fruit Cove Florida which is located just south of Mandarin. I won't try to mention here all of the positives with this school but I definitely think you should add it to the list of schools that you may be considering...hands down. Anything else just look me up..my name is all over.... more
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
I don't see this one on our list but if you need a good place to start looking for some other rentals in that area, please check out my firm's property management division for tons of options in and around Jacksonville. www.WatsonRent.com Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you~
