FACT: The community of San Marco, located just south of downtown Jacksonville, Florida is one of the most historic and highly sought after neighborhoods for young business professionals looking to buy real estate in Northeast Florida.
MYTH: There aren’t any houses in the area priced under $200,000 that are worth buying.
While it is true that San Marco is a somewhat upscale neighborhood with numerous homes priced well in excess of half a million dollars, it is also true that there are a number of homes available for far less. And one of the advantages of purchasing one of those homes is the future appreciation in value the buyer might expect just by being located within the area.
San Marco is one of the most historically and culturally significant areas in Jacksonville and is home to some of the area’s most prestigious restaurants and boutiques. It’s residents and business owners tend to identify very strongly with the community and work diligently to maintain its appeal and value.
At it’s center is an artsy dining, shopping and entertainment district known locally as “the Square”. Galleries restaurants and boutiques are, for the most part, locally and independently owned and operated – many by people who also live in the immediate area as well.
It is not unusual to rub elbows with an eclectic group of people including young professionals, ‘old money’ professionals, starving artists, tourists (local and foreign) and others who simply appreciate a diversity of culture and entertainment opportunities.
Sure, if you are in the market for a higher priced home San Marco has much to offer but if your budget doesn’t allow the luxury just now and you want to live in this fabulous community there are many great homes for sale between $100,000 and $200,000.
