Whether you’re changing jobs, starting a family, or looking to retire, Northeast Florida real estate has been steadily growing and improving over the past 10 years. New construction is everywhere, and it’s far more affordable than you might think. Our clients are often surprised when they find out a brand new home is in their budget!
Jacksonville New Construction Real Estate
Jacksonville proper is filled with beautiful home developments, condominiums and apartments lining the St. Johns River, and a cultural explosion has left residents clamoring over local theatre, concerts, and art. A centralized Town Center means shopping, entertainment, and pleasure all in one place. Don’t forget Jacksonville is home to the NFL football team the Jaguars, the MiLB baseball team the Jumbo Shrimp, NPSL soccer team the Armada, Arena football team the Sharks, and NCAA Jacksonville University’s basketball team the Dolphins in case you love sports! Because of all this, you’ll find an impressive amount of new construction happening in an already-established city.
One of the fastest-growing areas of Northeast Florida for the past 8 years is St. Johns County. Only 20 minutes south of Jacksonville, St. Johns is a slice of paradise complete with plenty of new construction, A-rated schools, and easy access to everyday necessities. Just 25 minutes from the beach, St. Johns is also home to beautiful golf course communities for those wishing to reside in a serene and beautiful landscape. While most people think building a new home is a out of their price range, St. Johns offers more bang for your buck; new homes built to your taste are available from tens of master builders creating modern, open floor plans for new residents.
Included in some Jacksonville, Florida statistics, Clay County is a sometimes-missed goldmine for Northeast Florida real estate seekers. Home to Greencove Springs, an historical town nestled in the bend of the St. Johns River, Oakleaf Plantation, a master-planned community with beautiful and affordable homes in perfectly plotted neighborhoods, and Fleming Island, a bedroom community surrounded by three bodies of water (St. Johns River, Doctors Lake, and Black Creek), Clay County has a little something for everyone. Highly affordable and full of beautiful new construction real estate opportunities, Clay County is sometimes overlooked as a fabulous option for Northeastern Florida real estate.
