Jacksonville, FL - Its not unusual for North Florida's homebuyers to experience a gap between the resale market and buying new. This is a trend that is shown nationwide but one could imagine it is most prevalent in the high demand areas of the country. Those that experienced the highest levels of distress signify a lot of these areas and while one might think that that would mean better pricing, you're right.... it did.
If you havnt already contracted on your home though you're late. Much of the overhang was sopped up by investors and those lucky enough to take advantage. Now homeowners will need to start considering what their housing goals are. If they're moving into a home that is a long term home (no I dont mean 30 years) and one that fits their goals there very likely may be a new community offering great homes, both to be built or standing, and terrific incentives to help put the keys in your hand.
