Hello everyone. Looking for any information on this area in Jacksonville, FL, including overall appeal, area's potential, crime, proximity to downtown, etc.., for purchasing a single family home for long term rental / investment. Any thoughts are much appreciated.
Springfield is a large area. The hottest gentrified or gentrifying spots are low numbers not past 400 block and not past 12th st 8th and below is better. However there is Opportunity Zone investors taking advantage of tax break incentives that are building new construction in lesser desired areas. I use to tell out of area people to avoid 32206 08 09 19 and 54 but Opportunity Zone incentives can be a game changer on that front.
