Strong End of Year

Although the real estate market in Fernandina and Yulee had a slight dip in 2007 compared to 2006, there continue to substantial deals in the market if you look hard enough. I recently wrote 4 offers in the course of four days that resulted in 3 signed contracts. All of the homes had been on the market for longer than 6 months and had significant price drops in the last 30 days. For those sellers who are looking to move their property, its a great time for buyers to step up to the plate. Sellers are more willing to look any reasonable offer and often will not allow the minor issues to prevent a successful sale from happening.ct

One of the houses that was put under contract was a 2300 square foot home in Amelia National that was originally listed in the 400's and went to contract in the 200's. Amelia National is a private gated golf course community located 10 minutes from Amelia Island in Fernandina Beach, Florida. It has a Tom Fazio designed golf course and newly finished Club House with fitness center, tennis courts, pool, locker rooms, and fitness facility. Recent sales have slowed and some of the builders are anxious to sell off their completed inventory for very resonable prices. The golf course and Club House are top of the line facilities on par with Summer Beach and the Amelia Island Plantation.
