Hi Nate,

From the look of it the closet Wal Mart will be at the River City Market Place on 95. Probably about 20-30 minutes from the address you are interested in.

You can Google WalMart store locations and it will give you the locations as well.

All the best

I believe that Trulia has a coding problem. This is not the first time they have sent CA questions to Jacksonville. 16th St. is south of JFK Blvd. in Jacksonville, FL and our San Mateo is miles north of there.

If I'm right, try sending in your question again so CA REALTORS can answer it.

Good Luck,

The other agents are correct. You need a single agency! If you enter into a single agency relationship, the broker or brokerage firm (and all the brokers and salesperson's employeed by that firm) becomes your agent. A single agent owes you the following
*Dealing honestly and fairly
*Accounting for all funds
*timely presentation of all real estate offers
*skill,care,and dilligence in the transaction
*disclosing all relevant information reguarding the condiction of the residential property

If you enter into a transaction brokerage relationship, the broker or brokerage firm (and all the brokers and salesperson's employeed by that firm):
*DOES NOT represent you as your own agent
*Owes you only LIMITED confidentiality
*Provides you with a Limited form of representation
*Owes you fewer duties than a single agent

At Prudential Network Realty, We are unique in the fact that we are one of the few companies in Jacksonville that offer Single Agency. I hope this helps you out. Give me a call. I would love to assist you.

Besides P & I you can expect to pay monthly for homeowner's insurance, property taxes for sure. Then additional expenses may or may not Mello Roos tax or special assessment tax, supplemental property tax for your first year to cover the difference between what you paid at closing for current property taxes and the new assessment for property taxes that will be calculated each January of the following calendar year, PMI insurance if you plan to put less than 20% down payment towards the purchase and a homeowner's association fee (if applicable). That should be about it as far as a recurring cost itemization. All other expenses are paid through escrow or at final funding. I'm not including any utilities or property maintenance expenses. Hope that helps! Good luck. ... more

Any commission is always negotiable. When interviewing a buyer broker you should find one who is not charging you anything out of pocket, the listing agent sets a fee in mls that they will pay a buyers broker. You could always negotiate say that you will pay a buyer agent 2% and anything offered by the listing broker will be deducted from the price. you may gain a half to 1 percent but there is not alot of room there to negotiate. ... more
