Some thoughts on why home buyers might want to consider this move-in ready home
With so many homes and communities to choose from in northeast Florida, it can be difficult for home buyers to make a choice. But, if you happen to be looking in the St. Augustine/Ponte Vedra area, there are a few important reasons to consider Las Calinas, and 92 Appaloosa Ave., specifically.
About Las Calinas
Las Calinas offers a nice mix of brand new and existing homes, conveniently located just south of Nocatee, and north of downtown St. Augustine. Easy access to US-1 & I-95 make commuting to Jacksonville or St. Augustine a breeze, and residents are close to World Golf Village, Palencia, Nocatee & more.
No CDD Fee
One of the things that makes Las Calinas stand apart from some of the larger, newer communities in the area, however is that residents pay no CDD fee. CDD stands for Community Development District, and it’s simply a way for new communities to finance/support the infrastructure for the development of the community. It’s paid annually with your tax bill, and consists of the bond portion (which can eventually be paid off) and the operations & maintenance portion (which will be ongoing). In Las Calinas, residents don’t pay CDD fees, only homeowner’s association fees. [Read more…]
Home sellers should be clear from the start about what does — and what does not — convey with the sale of their home.
The concept of real property is central to the practice of real estate sales. Real property, in broad terms, is the land and anything permanently attached to it. Personal property, on the other hand, can be thought of as movable items not attached to real property.
Sometimes, a buyer and a seller have differing opinions on what constitutes real property, and will be sold with the home, versus what’s personal property, and can be retained and moved by the seller. That’s why, as a home seller, it’s important to specify upfront exactly what you plan to take with you when you move…especially if it’s attached to the home. [Read more…]

Depending on your point of view, a homeowner’s association is either a force for good, protecting property values and providing desirable amenities and services (see this survey here), or a meddling overlord, intent on infringing on your rights to do what you please with the property you rightfully own. Ideally, a good homeowner’s association can maintain a tidy, desirable community without resorting to overzealous policing, but it is, to be sure, a difficult balancing act.
Here in northeast Florida, and especially in St. Johns County, homeowner’s associations are more the norm than the exception. This is especially true in the newer communities like Nocatee, Shearwater, Twin Creeks, etc. But for home buyers who would prefer to have a little more autonomy with regard to what they do on/with their property, there are still plenty of options in and around Jacksonville.

195 Pinewoods has features you won’t find in just any Nocatee home.
Nocatee has a lot to offer home buyers right now. The community continues to grow, meaning you can build a new home from the ground up. It’s also a mature community, with quite a few resale homes available.
And resales can sometimes offer things that a brand new home in Nocatee simply cannot.
Consider what makes 195 Pinewoods St. so unique:
