Secret listing - 07/26/09 08:21 PM
One of the builders that I like to use has just received a home back due to financing. I think it's a good deal here in Jacksonville especially since the new Florida bond rate is 6%. Here is the email that I just received................
"Now for the secret one - It is a Marco, 3/2, with the beautiful B elevation, with a nice covered Front porch, in a cul-de-sac, and a very private, wooded, nature preserve behind it. (no back yard neighbor). No neighbor will be on one side of the home, either as it is also preser next to (2 comments)
We are coming up on that time of year again where it may be possible to lower your property taxes. In the month of August all Jacksonville, FL property owners will have the opportunity to appeal their property tax assessment.
Many Jacksonville homeowners have taken a hit with the loss of value in the market and it is just too tough for the Duval County property appraiser’s office to keep up with fluctuating values. There is a Value Adjustment Board or “VAB” as it is sometimes called that reviews appeals.
Good News, Bad News,when buying a home in Orange Park FL - 07/24/09 12:01 PM
Well the bad news for some Jacksonville, FL and Orange Park,FL first time homebuyers is the Florida Bond will require at least a 600 credit score for approval. The only exception will be when there are no FICO scores in which a manual underwrite will be acceptable. Believe it or not this has affected many potential Jacksonville, FL home buyers.
The good news is that the new issue from the Florida Housing bond program will be at a interest rate of 6%. This is great news! The former rate was at 6%.

Where is the Jacksonville, FL Home Buyer money??????????? - 07/24/09 09:35 AM
We are now skimming the bottom of the barrell. Just about every down payment and closing cost assistance program in Jacksonville is out of money! Jacksonville SHIP was the first to run out. That meant hundreds of Jacksonville, FL residents lost access to up to $14,999. Clay county SHIP was next followed by the nail in the coffin the H2H program. Well not to despair! The "Bond" program (Florida Housing Finance Corporation) is still around with assistance for first time buyers of up to $10,000. The FLHOP program is still going strong also. Funds are very limited for these programs.
