  • Welcome Home: Historic St. Augustine

    by Watson Realty | Jan 22, 2016


    Did you know that our nation’s oldest city is right here in northeast Florida? St. Augustine, commonly referred to as “Old Town” or the “Ancient City” boasts an average of 6.2 million visitors (National Trust for Historic Preservation) annually, with more flocking to the charming town during festivals and holiday weekends. Few areas can match St. Augustine’s combination of attractions, historic sites, homes and quality dining establishments.  

    In the downtown area you'll find a remarkable collection of historic landmarks dating back to the beginning of the 16th century and charming cobblestone streets lined with buildings of coquina stone and wood. Shopping and dining opportunities are plentiful as are art galleries and boutiques. As a downtown resident, the perfect combination of history and charm awaits you right outside your front door. 

    Much of the real estate located in the historic district consists of commercial buildings and some single-family homes and condos. Most are large restored clapboard homes reflecting St. Augustine's Spanish heritage. The streets west of the Castillo De San Marcos are lined with a plethora of private homes, B&Bs, shops, galleries and restaurants. Prices for single-family residences in the Spanish Quarter neighborhood average $399K and the neighboring areas average up to $619.5K (Realtor.com).

    If you are looking to sell or buy real estate in historic St. Augustine, stop by Watson Realty Corp.’s St. Augustine or St. Augustine Beach office today.

  • WELCOME HOME: ORTEGA

    by Watson Realty | Oct 20, 2015


    If you venture over the Buckman Bridge, to your right you will find the unique neighborhood of Ortega, a pleasing mix of 1940s bungalows, head-turning riverfront estates and practically everything in between. The tiny Ortega River drawbridge is the area’s signature feature and the homes lining Ortega Boulevard featuring the Downtown skyline views enjoyed from their backyards are some of the prettiest houses in town. The upscale social hubs here are Timuquana Country Club and the Florida Yacht Club. NAS Jax makes up its southern boundary, so having a Navy pilot or two as neighbors is fairly common. According to data compiled by Zillow, the median home value in Ortega proper is $347,200 (the average hovers around $339,900, according to Realtor.com). Home values in the area have gone up 5.1% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise 2.3% within the next year.

    Watson Realty Corp. has an office that has been specializing in Ortega real estate for over 20 years. If you are looking to sell or buy real estate in beautiful Ortega, call the local Avondale-Ortega office at 904.387.3555 or stop by today.
