JaxBeach Oceanfront, They're Not Making Anymore Of It

Updated: Oct 19, 2018

Q.  I'm an oceanfront seller in Jax Beach. Will hurricane Florence affect our local market here?

A.  It's really too soon to tell.  There's no denying  that the increase in hurricane activity may give some oceanfront buyers pause.  It's hard to believe just one year ago this week we were cleaning up from hurricane Irma.  I remember clearly that not only did our waterfront buyer activity dwindle for weeks afterwards, but so did our overall buyer pool.  If you recall, flooding in Jacksonville occurred in areas that were no where near the ocean. Now with hurricane Florence devastating our neighbors to the north, at what point do buyers say enough is enough and buy homes away from any type of waterfront?  But there is good news if you own oceanfront property...they're not making anymore of it. There will always be people yearning to live on the water and willing to pay the price and incur the risk to live their dream.  So to answer your question, only time will tell.  Good luck with your sale.
