Home prices soaring in Florida, Market Statistics Show
Florida enjoying 28 straight months of market growth.
 
What’s good for Florida is almost certainly good for the Jacksonville Real Estate market. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported this week that Florida's housing market sustained higher median prices, more new listings and a comfortably stable inventory in the month of March. Single family home sales for last month:  20,081. That’s a gain of 2.8 percent over the March 2013 figure.

                     Jacksonville is one of the best cities in America with the potential to exploit solar power. 
 
It appears we would do well to tap into the sun for more of our energy here in Jacksonville.

A report from Environment America Research & Policy Center indicates that Jacksonville is among the top 20 cities in the nation recognized has having the potential for massive amounts of photovoltaic power. In fact, we're #13, just behind Sacramento.

 
37 million Americans will move this year.
37.5 million Americans will move this year. Slightly more than half will buy instead of rent.  

American Express Spending & Saving Tracker reports that sixteen percent of Americans will find a new place to hang their hats this year. That’s six percent more than in the previous two years, when the number hovered around 10 percent. 
 
Buying will be more popular than renting, they report, with about 17 million people planning to purchase a home or condo, compared to about 16 million who will rent.  
 
It’s all about consumer confidence.

Barnett Bank Tower to be developed into retail, residential and office space.
Developers are planning to retrofit the 1926 Barnett Bank Tower with a pricetag of $30 million.
 
OneSpark, Springing the Blues -- all promising signs of life for the resuscitating of downtown Jacksonville.  So the timing finally seems right for something that’s been on the minds of ambitious developers for awhile -- redeveloping the iconic Barnett Bank Tower.
 

Forget Angie, and Craigslist. If your home is screaming "fix me," than call us. If you’ve heard knocking, creaking, gurgling or scratching, it could just be that Uncle Harold is trapped in the attic, or more likely, it's your house saying, "help me." These noises can occur in homes of all ages, and they’re usually easy to fix. And if you or someone you know needs a referral to a great handyman, plumber or pest control specialist, or any other kind of qualified contractor, contact Joi Perkins, joi@bloomrealty.com, or 904-233-3070.  Bloom Realty works with a myriad of qualified professionals on a regular basis, and we’ll be happy to recommend a contractor for you.

RiverTown in St. Johns County, off of SR 13, soon accessible from I-95  
Mattamy has recently completed its purchase of the RiverTown development from St. Joe Company.

It’s been the rap for RiverTown in St. Johns County that it is too far off the beaten path to attract as many Jacksonville and St. Augustine new home buyers as they would have liked. But how do you move a neighborhood?

Zombie mortgages
Zombies happen. Deal with it.
 
Folks, if you watch The Walking Dead, and I hope you do, you know that zombies are a growing problem for the real estate market.
 
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is the first line of defense against a problem that plagues some homeowners. The “zombie” foreclosure occurs when borrowers find out they still own a home they assumed was lost to them via foreclosure.
