Life is still great on the beach!
The state of Florida is easing restrictions and has re-opened all of the beaches in Northeast Florida.
Nationally, many sellers have decided to hold off as the COVID-19 pandemic grew in April, and realtor.com reports that its number of new listings was down 44.1% for the month – but only one Florida metro area was higher than the U.S. average.
In Jacksonville, the number of new listings fell only 19.4% year-to-year for April. Buyers are back out looking for deals and not really finding any significant price reductions so all indicators point to a strong real estate market for the summer.
Meanwhile, if you're wondering about your favorite restaurant OR wonder where to eat when you visit, check https://www.visitstaugustine.com/article/coronavirus-covid-19-updates#restaurants for the updated list.
It may be awhile before life is back to normal but the horse drawn carriages are still giving tours, music is still being performed in outdoor venues, and boat tours/charters are busier than ever!
