After living in Ohio for many years and raising our 3 kids, in 2003 my husband and I moved to St. Augustine, Fl. From the time we were in college we always knew that some day we would live in Florida but thought it would be on the West Coast. Fate intervened and Saint Augustine, Florida was where we choose to begin our new life. As the years have gone by we still love it as much as we did when we first moved. I sold real estate in Ohio for 8 years and got my license in Florida after we moved. It has been lots of fun selling real estate in St. Augustine because there is so much variety. There are single family homes, condos, townhouses, golf communities, ocean front homes and communities, Intracoastal homes, Historic homes in downtown Saint Augustine, New Construction, 50+Communities, and investment properties. There is something for everyone. Prices have gone down and there are good deals available. For condo owners the weekly rental market for condos at St.Augustine Beach and Crescent Beach can be a good investment. Our beautiful wide, white sand beaches that go for miles are great for fishing, surfing, riding bikes, building sand castles, strolling along the shore, playing in the waves and people watching. The beach at Anastasia State Park is my favorite because it is all sand dunes and ocean with no buildings. You can really appreciate all the natural beauty of the land.
Boating & Fishing are very popular in St. Augustine. We are lucky to have our own Inlet to the Atlantic Ocean right in St. Augustine and the Intracoastal Waterway runs through Saint Augustine. There are very nice Marina's for overnight visits. We have many wonderful local restuarants, cultural events, and are an easy drive to Jacksonville for major league sports, the Jacksonville symphony, and broadway plays. Orlando with all of their theme parks is about an hour and a half from St. Augustine and if you are a Nascar fan Daytona is about 45 minutes.
