Hello Again,

I see you have many great questions. May I suggest seeking one Realtor to assist all your inquiries and deliver data pertaining to your rental needs. Many homes may seem overpriced for rentals, but with the distressed market and many homeowners being forced as tenants...Many owners/landlords are in competion with so many other rentals that a reduced lease is highly possible with the right negotiating. I can explain the 1 yr lease legal rule to you, when I here from you hopefully. ... more

Both communities have comparable neighborhoods and schools, so you really need to evaluate several aspects of your requirements and rate them. Some important considerations are commute time, HOA fees and/or CDD fees (which are more prevalent in Fruit Cove), amenities, distance to shopping, traffic, schools and community establishment to see what is really most important to you. I would really like to help you find the right home for you and your family. Call anytime 904.608.0016. Good Luck and Happy Holidays! Dawn ... more

Hi, Vanni;
If you're looking at the new development from Richmond American, keep in mind that new construction is hurting right now, but if you're builing from dirt you don't have as much leverage generally speaking. Across the street there was aa new development by Engle, but they shut down because houses in this price range just aren't moving as quickly. It's sad because there are only 4-5 homes in Abigail Estates and it's full of vacant lots. Richmond American isn't the only builder in that Community, in fact there is a custom builder in there that bought a few lots as well.

The previous posts about being represented by a Realtor are spot on.....especially with new construction. Most Realtors have established relationships with site reps and can be quite savvy at getting you special incentives not available to the general public. I've sold a number of Richmond American homes and have good relationships with several of thier reps as well as a number of other builders in the area.

Further down Greenland on the other side of 95 going towards Phillips is Greenland Chase by Providence Builders. There are some great deals in there, but the houses are a lot closer together. On the other side of Greenland, where it meets Old St Augustine Rd and changes into Loretto Rd, if you go south on Old St Augustine there is a Beazer community down on the right about 1/2 a mile past St. Joe's Church. Those are in the high 200's and into the 300's, but the community is in closeout mode and the prices have been slashed on the last remaining inventory homes.. Finally, if you go North just a bit and down Losco there are some as well (Emilys Crossing is one..).

Check my website for some builder links or send me an email. $100 per square foot is a real good price for this area, but you get it for less.......

This is such a great area. Congratulations on moving to our Area. I work in the Mandarin and Southside area. You can get homes from 200,000 to 400,000 and higher, just depending on the particular neighborhoods. If you'd like t.o check out my website, it's the actually JaxMLS that you can search 24/7 by yourself. . Do you have kids? If you need information about the schools, go to to check out the different schools. THe traffic can get pretty bad, so you should let your Realtor know what time limit you want your commute to not be over.
If you have any other questions, please ask, and I'd love to help you. I work with MANY relocations, in fact, I can send you a relocation packet, if you'd like!
Just let me know how I can help you best!
