Hi Scott,

Vilano Beach is an unincorporated area of St. Johns County just outside the city limits of Saint Augustine. Because it isn't in it's own official town the postal address is the nearest city Saint Augustine. That lot is in the North Beach section of Vilano which is a beautiful area. I work closely with a builder in the area and would be happy to give you an idea of what it would cost to build you a house there. Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

Generally lenders don't count equity in your qualifying since they are concerned about cash flow
to be able to make the payments. If she is expecting to purchase a new home and get a mortgage
she really needs to sell her current home. Unless you have VERY high income lenders rules
make it very difficult to qualify for a second loan if you already have one.
Let me know if I can help.

Trulia is a website design to provide basic information and to connect clients with agents. All those specifics you are asking for plus up to date listing information can be obtained from any of the local agents that work the area.

On the green bar above click on "Find and Agent" and look by zipcode. Read the profiles and select one or two to contact with your questions. Then choose the one you want to continue working with and ask them to supply you with a direct feed from your local MLS. You will know what's on the market the minute it goes public. Was this answer helpful? If so please click on "best answer" or on the "green thumbs up".

Hello Johnny,

Great questions! As to the condo market, there are currently more than 59 active listings that may appeal to an investor priced from $59K to $120K. Within the last year more than 207 condos have sold within this price range. According to the St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and the Beaches Visitors and Conventions Bureau, occupancy rates and revenue from overnight stays has increased for the last 4 years. Also, revenue from room rentals went up 9% and average daily room rates up 6%. Overall, hotel occupancy hit a 5 year high in 2013. St. Augustine has also been named a top travel destination by USA Today and National Geographic Traveler.
As we enter the travel and buying season I will share this.... when I ride my bike to historic downtown, the streets are already buzzing with happy faces,( there are a few lodging and business opportunities active downtown) and the influx of buyer calls from folks that have endured a very harsh winter are coming in daily. I hope this info will help out with your questions and there is more data to support the growth and popularity of St. Augustine. Feel free to contact me on the real estate opportunities here in St. Augustine. I look forward to your reply.

Hi John,

I am not sure what your question is. The crime information is available through Trulia. You can also view information through the St Johns County Sherriff's department.

Hi Allen,

You are correct in that there is a lot of activity in Deerfield Trace. The new builder in that development is Richmond American. Previously lots were for sale individually with the option to bring in your own builder. Here is a link that will connect you directly to the Richmond American site with the floor plans and pricing they currently offer:
