The housing market is going up, so when we sell we should be able to get more than we paid for this home.There are new schools being built, new restaraunts and shopping being added to make things even more convienient than they already are.

Jacksonville is a city that you go to for the beaches but then get real tired of the area and the overall living experience that you obtain from moving here. Compared to Orlando it has really nothing to offer or any negatives other than crime.
The city of Jacksonville used to be the worst in crime rates but overall has gotten better over the years and during that time I've felt safer and safer knowing law enforcement is doing their job better.
