Living in Jacksonville: The Best of Everything

Ready to make a change in life? Starting a family? Looking for a job and a new place to live? About to retire? There seems to something for everyone in greater Jacksonville, and its neighbors of St. Augustine and St. Johns, Florida. If you’re looking for Jacksonville homes for sale, we invite you to come visit and explore the North Florida lifestyle and surrounding areas. But first, we’ve identified some key reasons why people are so pumped up about living here.

More Bang for the Buck

Nobody should move somewhere just because it’s cheaper. But when you can buy a new home – or build the home you want – and live in a great environment at a great price, you owe it to yourself (and your family) to take a look. Fact is, U.S. New & World Report named Jacksonville one of the best places to live, while Money Magazine recently named St. Augustine the best place to live in Florida. Jacksonville, St. Augustine and St. Johns continue to grow for many reasons you’ll read about below. As a result, the area has given rise to high quality builders like MasterCraft Builder Group, delivering much more than you may have thought possible.

A Robust Job Market

No question about it, Jacksonville is one of he fastest growing job markets. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Forbes Magazine ranked Jacksonville among the top 10 job markets in the U.S. for 2017. And there are a number reasons for that honor. With a revived port, Jacksonville has become a transportation hub providing employment related to this industry. There’s lots of opportunity in the growing healthcare and financial services sector, too. Jacksonville also has the 20th largest educational district in the country, and the nearby military bases need both enlisted people and civilians.

A Diversity of Activities for All

From Atlantic beaches to pristine, navigable rivers; from historic forts to gleaming skyscrapers; from state parks geared for family fun to the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, the greater Jacksonville area is rich in history, nature, entertainment and recreation. Both Jacksonville and St. Augustine are also cultural centers that showcase their vibrant, artistic communities. And did you know that St. Augustine is home to the World Golf Hall of Fame, while Ponte Vedra is headquarters for the PGA? We take great pride in ensuring that our communities offer residents access to the many natural resources and environmental splendors of the Jacksonville area. At the same time, our communities enable residents to take advantage of all that North Florida cities have to offer.

Oh Yes, the Amazing Weather

Sure it can get a bit toasty in the summer, but it’s also very mild in the winter. While not New England, you will experience changing seasons and have the opportunity wear a light jacket or sweater when the weather does turn cool. This part of Florida is generally not in the path of hurricanes or other severe weather. What other part of the country can make that claim?
