San Mateo, Jacksonville FL - good area??

3 Replies

I am looking to get some information on a neighborhood on the Northside of Jacksonville, FL. Does anyone here have any rentals in the San Mateo neighborhood? I have researched the neighborhood but believe a locals opinion may be more valuable. My research has yielded inconsistent data so I am looking for some clarity.


@Garrett Masiulis     I'm confused.  It indicates you are from Jacksonville.  Are you actually looking for a person who lives in that neighborhood?  What zip is it?  There's a San Mateo in Putnam County, it that it?  Or are you talking up by the Bacardi plant?

I can see how my question seems odd given the fact I live here. I know the areas south of the city really well, but when it comes to the North side I might as well be from out of town . What I am interested in finding out is how the area performs for buy and hold. I am struggling to find deals in the area I am familiar with so I’m am looking elsewhere. I have an agent telling me one thing and research tells a different story so I was hoping to find someone who owns property in the area who can give some insight. Zip is 32218.

Thanks in advance for any insight.
