August 2017 happenings in Jacksonville Real Estate
Its almost back to school time here in Duval County for all the kiddos. Take that last trip to Disneyworld or somewhere cooler. August 14, is the first day of school here in Jacksonville. Many private schools have already started. You know its that time of year when you see the school buses out, so please be careful and slow down your driving. Besides school, here area a few of the August 2017 happenings in Jacksonville.
Avondale Art Walks new August 2017 happenings
Something the Shoppes of Avondale decided to do was offer local artists the opportunity to come to Avondale and display their wares. The event is planned, for now every month, on the 2nd Thursday of the month. This will not conflict with the existing art walk in downtown Jacksonville, the first Wednesday of each month. The inaugural event is Thursday August 10, 2017. Same day as the Jaguars first pre-season game, so maybe Mellow Mushroom will be busy both inside (game) and outside (artisans). The Avondale Art Walk goes from 5 until 9 p.m, is family friendly and free for all to attend.
19 transactions in July 2017
Yes, I had a busy month in July. I appreciate the Congratulations to my page, Liz Bobeck Realtor, July 2017 Tops in Listings, Sales, and Transactions. 19 transactions in 1 month, July 2017. The local Jacksonville real estate market is very good right now. I have been very busy all over Jacksonville, but I really appreciate the opportunities in Riverside, Avondale and Ortega. I have a great staff of people around me as well as our office which now features over 60 agents. Having been in this business since 2005, I know that you cannot have months like this without 1) luck, 2) preparation and 3) a great support staff around me. So thanks to all who have helped support me this summer. I am not done yet, just wait till you see me this fall and we can discuss the August 2017 happenings with more listings, sales and transactions.
The S Curve gets a make-over
The S-Curve, a curve shaped like an “S” along St. Johns Avenue is getting a $100,000 makeover. Between 2010 and 2014, there have been 56 crashes between Van Wert and Greenwood Avenue. That may not seem like a lot, but having lived at Herschel and Edgewood since 1999, I can count on one hand the number of accidents at the light over all that time. These new solar powered markers in the street will light up and alert people to the change in the road. The project should take a couple of weeks. Maybe they will be able to add these in the shoppes to alert people to slow down as well. Maybe? Nice to positive August 2017 happenings in Avondale.
