Greetings to my hometown and area I live in. I would look very forward to being your personal Lease Specialist. As for schools, I have a school link on my website in which will also deliver logistics and listings for your criteria. Go to melaniefriesen.com and we can get connected. Or meanwhile, let me do the work and send me a text or email to 904-377-8884 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have many legal tenant guidlines to protect your future move to guide you with no fees.
Vani, if you have a Realtor representing you, they can look at the comparable sales and if they are experienced in new home sales, they will know the right questions to ask to negotiate with the builder. Is the home under construction? I gather it isn't finished since you are asking for upgrades. Builders will negotiate price to a point, then they are risking their entire neighborhood's value. Find out what the standard upgrades are for the neighborhood, and ask for those. Structural upgrades are the most important - if the home isn't under construction. The cosmetic ones can be changed later.
I have just written an entire series on building a new home, from finding the right community and floor plan, all the way through to closing. You can access it on my web site on "Sharon's Blog."
If I can help you with this process, please call or email me. New homes are a specialty of mine.

Other areas you might consider would be the Baymeadows/Deerwood area, and the Intracoastal West area. NW St. Johns County would be the longest commute, but possibly one of your best choices if you are looking at school options.... more
