LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! You've heard it over and over - and while it may be a cliche' or mantra by the local real estate community - no three words could be more imporant for your buying decision!
I'm reminded EVERY day while showing property that location is one of the most important factors in determining your home's value.
Here in Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra our locations range from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal, lakes, tributaries, marshes, golf courses, preserves.... Northeast Florida has some of the most beautiful, pictureesque scenery. It's this scenery that becomes your back yard - and something that you look at EVERY day.
So, it goes without saying that if we had two homes - each with the same house floorplan. One of which overlooked a beautiful lake in a great neighborhood with A rated local schools - and the other that overlooked the back of a shopping center we all know which home would be valued higher.
Just take a look at a home that we have just listed! Beautiful views and a beautiful interior!
Here's another article on the importance of location!
