Where We Buy Homes in Jacksonville: Neighborhood Highlight (Part III)
June 8th, 2023
Are you ready to sell your Jacksonville home to a professional home buyer so you can move to a new neighborhood? Before making a move, it’s important to research the area(s) that you’re looking to buy or sell property in. That’s why our experts at Evergreen Home Buyers have compiled a list of where we buy homes in Jacksonville, including a neighborhood highlight of each area to make your next real estate decision go a bit smoother.
Nestled between skyscrapers and the St. John’s River lies the heart of Jacksonville in the downtown core. With a unique urban vibe and cool atmosphere, you’ll find not only professionals going about their business but also world-class museums, fantastic dining destinations, and tons of opportunities to connect with nature. Enjoy a ride on a river taxi or take a guided nature tour along the river. And, if you keep your eyes peeled, you may even spot the St. Johns River dolphins on your adventure!
San Marco could be a great option if you want to explore a historic neighborhood only minutes from Downtown. Take in the tree-lined San Marco Square, with its European-inspired fountain, that serves as the neighborhood’s focal point, or stop in for a drink at one of the local cocktail bars or breweries. With distinctive boutiques and art galleries to enjoy, San Marco is one of Jacksonville’s most beautiful neighborhoods.
Established in 1869, Springfield is the oldest community in Jacksonville and was once home to the city’s wealthiest residents. Located just north of Downtown, Springfield is the perfect fusion of history and modernity. You’ll find restored mansions mixed in with modern street art, some of the city’s oldest parks alongside hip new cafes, and tons of majestic oak trees shading you as you step from one locally owned shop to the next. Springfield also holds popular annual festivals like Porchfest and the Springfield Tour of Homes and has become a hot spot for young entrepreneurs.
If you’re interested in preserved or updated historic homes, the wealthy Ortega neighborhood needs to be on your list of Jacksonville communities to visit. Take a long drive through the canopies of trees, watch the boats bob along the St. Johns River, enjoy the stunning views from the popular Stinson Park, or sit down for some good old southern grub. And be sure to bring your camera because the sunset always puts on a show in Ortega!
Finally, this one is for all the nature and history buffs looking for a unique experience in Jacksonville. Not only was Arlington one of the first areas settled by Europeans in the 1500s, making the Fort Caroline National Memorial a must-visit attraction, but it also boasts the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve, a 46,000-acre park that’s just as magical as it sounds. You can also stop off at the Tree Hill Nature Center or the Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens, or if that’s not your vibe, there are tons of biking and hiking trails in the area.
Although, as always, we recommend checking out these communities for yourself, we hope our neighborhood highlight gave you an overview of some of the best features and activities in each area. At Evergreen Home Buyers, we buy, flip, sell, and lease homes within each of these communities, but this doesn’t even scratch the surface of how many neighborhoods there are in Jacksonville. So, if you’ve missed Part I and II, we recommend checking those out, and stay tuned for Part IV!
