Tamaya on Beach Boulevard, between I-295 and the Beaches.
Back in April, ICI Homes unveiled its pre-construction pricing in Tamaya, the new 2,400 home, master planned community about half way between Downtown and the Jacksonville Beaches. Much has been made about the cool Mediterranean style ICI Homes is known for, in neighborhoods like Palermo, and the [future] Siena development in Nocatee. What about location? That’s pretty unique as well.
Neighborhoods like Wolf Creek, Jacksonville Golf and Country Club and Highland Glen are convincing high end Jacksonville Home buyers that you can live in luxury in what Jacksonville natives sometimes refer to (in the pejorative sense) as the “Southside.” Every luxury development has its hook. In Ponte Vedra, there’s the beach. In Deerwood, the St. John’s Town Center, and Old San Jose and Palazzo in San Marco/San Jose make for a quick trip downtown. But where’s the happy medium?

Scary. Home Mortgage rates could be edging closer to 5% by the end of 2014.
Low mortgage rates have been a great incentive to buy a home. An even greater incentive is the threat of high mortgage rates. In October, the Fed will make a stealthy move that could hit you right in the mortgage payment.
Fed policy is really boring, but suffice it to say at least they've kept mortgage rates low by buying Mortgage Backed Securities. When the Fed buys these assets, the Fed gets fatter. It loans more money to banks. Banks get fatter. They loan more money to people like you and me. We buy things like houses.
