Getting started in Jacksonville, Fl

9 Replies

Hello! I am new on BiggerPockets and I am looking to connect with people currently in the Jacksonville Fl market. I am currently living in New Mexico as a Deputy Sheriff. I plan on moving to Jacksonville with my family in May of this year. I don’t plan on working law enforcement in Florida, but would like to start flipping houses and start purchasing rental properties. I would like to find an investor friendly real estate agent, and get started from there. Any information or advice about the market in the Jacksonville area will be really helpful.

Thank you, does anyone have any information or advice on the current Jacksonville market?

Hey Brandon,

Welcome to the Bigger Pocket Community! The data that I am seeing daily show Jacksonville to be a viable market. We see a good amount of properties 20% or more under ARV.

There are just a couple examples of some undervalue properties that could turn out to be solid investments for someone in the Jacksonville area.

Hi Brandon, I'm a licensed REALTOR in the JAX area and a fellow investor. Give me a shout if you'd like to connect and discuss your plans. Thanks! Rich

@Josh Stanley  The move went good. I haven’t started investing here yet, Im still getting adjusted to living here and learning the areas. I got my home inspection license and Imworking for a home inspection company. It’s been helping me meet different Realtors and it’s helping learn the areas.
