Yes, awesome community! Gorgeous neighborhoods offering many different price ranges. Short drive to the ocean, highly rated schools, and great pools and amenities including lazy river, and soon to open 4 story "spray park" water playground. We give a 2% New Home Rebate in ANY new home community in Florida (approx. 75% of our typical 3% commission), which is the highest rebate we've seen offered by a real estate company in northeast Florida. Our team is also made up of Nocatee Certified Agents and pride ourselves in excellent customer service. ... more

this is a drug infested area lived in this house beautiful house but drug activity is next door across the street basically 5 drug houses within this little block. We had a security system and a dog never went out after dark and kept to ourselves. Hopefully the AC was repaired because otherwise the light bill will be almost as much as the rent. I paid 875 rent and that was very much too high considering the location. ... more

Its legal in certain states and my company offers it in Southern California on new construction.
The best thing to do is hire a realtor familiar with your area to represent you on a new construction home that is willing to credit you some of their commission.
Even if you do not use a realtor the builder keeps the commission.

A bit more information:

I am helping my daughter purchase which is why I am hoping to get down payment and closing costs assistance. She is hoping the payments will be no more than $600. She currently has $1,000 for a down payment, but I know with a bigger percentage down, the payments will be lower. I am a first time home buyer. I own my property because it was passed down from my parents. I bought a used car in 2015 for $10,000 and paid it off in July of this year. I checked my credit today on Credit Karma, but nothing showed, just the score. Sorry for the long post, we are headed to the bank tomorrow so just trying to get some last minute advice! Thanks! ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
The way real estate websites work is they charge realtors monthly advertising fees to have their pretty faces on listings they pay for. In addition these realtors are offered to have their listings show up first in searches BEFORE any For Sale By Owner listing. Your home is being advertised on Zillow and Trulia for free. Those "Premier Agents" who appear on your listing paid for your listing so in their mind, why should you have your listing show up first before theirs. Realtors are basically telling you since you didn't pay and you don't want to work with a realtor, you need to get in back of the line. ... more
