Hello Frank.
My wife and I have our home listed on Charter Point Blvd. The MLS# is 728784. Please take a look at the pictures on MLS. We are sure that you will like what you see.

We have lived in this beautiful community since 2003 and are now going to downsize to a condo nearer to our daughter and family in St. Augustine.
Charter Point's HOA fee is quite low because we have over 300 homes in the development. At $215 ea. annually, that provides sufficiently to underwrite maintenance of the common areas and security patrols.
If you would like to connect with our realtor please call Andria Erickson at Watson Realty 904-445-8602.

Caveat Emptor.

I recently was working with a client on a property that was sold to another party through the online auction in Jacksonville for $170,000. My client then contracted to purchase the same property from the auction purchaser. Several weeks into the contract, we found that the auction purchaser did not have clear title as their was an additional lien on the property not noted at the auction. The auction purchaser was out his $170k. If you plan to attempt this, please, please, please have a title search completed on the property. It will cost you a little but could save you thousands. Also note, and this is only my limited experience understanding of the the auction information, it will show you the plaintiff's max bid. If your bid price is not more than that, it will revert back to the bank/lienholder. Typically, it will not sell for less than that number. If you are watching the process, sometimes it will show $200 or $400 or something, that it sold for, and that just means the plaintiff's max bid was not reached, it did not actually sell for that amount.

Good luck and be careful,
Holly Hayes

Hi Mary, If you are looking for the best schools, than you might want to concider St. Johns County. We currently have a home in a golf course community south of Jacksonville in Elkton, just west of St Augustine, and just off I-95. So the commute may be a bit longer, but the neighborhood is very safe. It has a community pool just down the street with a play area, and we have no CDD fees. Please see the ad on Trulia, 5383 Cypress Links Blvd. Thanks Paul ... more
