OK, I’m back with another “What You Get For…” post. You’ll note that I’ve changed the title a bit for the sake of accuracy. While Jacksonville is the primary MSA down here where I live and work, there’s really quite a bit more beyond the Duval County lines. So, I’ve changed the title to “What You Get (in Northeast Florida) For…” to better reflect the areas I’ll be referencing. Specifically, I’ll be talking about St. Johns County, which encompasses St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and Ponte Vedra Beach, not to mention Clay and Baker Counties.
This week, we’re looking at the $900,000 price point, as set out by the Property Values column in the New York Times. So, let’s get started…
