As a Realtor I cannot say what is safe and what is not you would have to check sites which disclose crime rate there are several.I live in Ponte Vedra Bch school district is one of the best if not the best.I have 7 children and live here and love the area also its a 30 second walk to the beach to 5 minutes depending were you live.Call me at 904-566-2864 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org... more
Southside area Jacksonville is in the middle of everything in my opinion as far as the city and definitely the place you should take into consideration. There are A rated and newly opened schools nearby, Close to fine dining and the St Johns town center just minutes away. You are conveniently located between malls and the beaches. The average weather here in Jacksonville Florida in March is 72 degrees by day and 50 degrees in the evening.
You can research yourself how safe these communities by going to the website below:
There are many great places to go on Jacksonville Florida’s Southside area. Here are a few that I can recommend: Friendship Fountain-Downtown Jax, Huguenot Park, Jacksonville Beach, and the World Golf Village is just 15 minutes away.
Please call or email me if you have any questions

Generally, yes it is safe. I am 29 live with my husband and two children in Murray Hill and have had no problems. I have lived in Murray Hill since '03 and regularly go for runs by myself in the neighborhood with no problems. That being said, I would generally stay west of Edgewood, East of Cassat. Also, there are some apartments south of Post Street, I would distance myself from. If you would like specific advice on the locale of a house, send me the address.... more
Generally you multiply the selling price of the home, by .92, then minus the homestead exemption you are eligible for, then times the millage rate for Jacksonville. That will give you roughly the yearly taxes on the home. To find your monthly payment, divide by 12.
This is a general way to find out, but there are a lot of other factors to consider.
Hope this helps.
Have fun with the math :-)

Answer questions people are actually asking. You'll be more successful if you can be part of the dialog going on in people's minds. Avoid promoting yourself and your message and instead identify the current hot buttons (you're attempting to do that here) and you'll get better response.
I know you were looking for answers from the general public. but I hope my opinion is helpful. good luck!... more
My vote would be anything that includes a picture of the realtor with: his or her chin resting on their finger or hand; some frou-frou pet that seems to say, 'see I'm an animal lover so Ideserve your business' or anything that doesn't tell someone looking at the ad, website etc. WIIFM.
As a realtor, although I love our dog, I wouldn't choose doctor because he or they had a dog or because I saw a picture of them contrived in an attempt to make them look thoughtful or intelligent.
There's nothing wrong with trying to project that you are friendly and want to deliver top notch service to your clients or potential clients but sometimes realtors go about this in ways that seem over the top or inane because they try to establish commonality on things that just aren't relevant to the business, pet ownership or, completely inexplicably, pointing to their chins.

No Question...Atlantic Beach backed by the various preserves is the best place to live IMHO. Oceanwalk and Sevilla Gardens for instance both back up to preserves and there are birds, trees, critters, etc galore. Atlantic Beach is quiet, secure, no drive through neighborhoods, beautiful, friendly, near the ocean...it doesn't get ANY better than Atlantic Beach. You can ride your bicycle to the local pizza parlor and "pub" (we don't call them that here :-), etc. Give a call or email and I'll be glad to help you out.

No. Two lawsuits were just filed against the local water treatment utility for dumping over eight million gallons of raw sewage into the St. Johns River each year. The local waterways are considered some of the most polluted in the country. I would never swim in any of them with the exception of the ocean (not really a waterway). You rarely see people swimming in them, but you do see the occasional Seadoo.... more
We have a few perfect areas for you where there is plenty of nite life, fun coffee shops and I would say certainly some funky restuarants. Just how late they stay open is mostly a function of how late they can keep the worker bees from going out to party. Although I'm almost ready for the nursing home I can still find the funky spots.
