Best Neighborhood in Florida – [It’s in St Johns County]

Nocatee is a master planned community in the City of Ponte Vedra.  Located within Northeast Florida and is in both St. Johns and Duval County.

It was developed by the Parc Group back in 2001 and currently has over 9,000 residences.  Nocatee is approximately 25 sq. Miles. 14,000 acres (300 acres of which are parks) and 60% of is reserved for conservation and preservation.   Nocatee has been ranked among the Top 10 Best-Selling Master-Planned Communities in America for the last six years- receiving national recognition and acclaim and has been ranked the #1 Neighborhood in Florida by and Newsweek.

Nocatee is a huge place; with the winding roads and preserve its pretty easy to get lost as your drive through.  One of the main selling points for Nocatee is the Amenity Center.  They have 2 waterparks within the community, The Splash Park & The Spray Park.  The award winning amenities were designed with the help of both Disney and Universal.  They have lap pools, huge waterslides, ziplines, lazy rivers and a restaurant.  This is on top of the 21 miles of walking trails, kayak launches, dog parks, tennis and basketball courts available.

It is about 25 minutes North of the Historic District in St. Augustine.  11 minutes to the beach at Micklers Landing.  And 5 mins to local healthcare that is offered within the community of Nocatee.  Outside of the community the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville is 25 mins away and Baptist Medical South is 15 mins.  I should note they are also building a St. Vincents Hospital off of 95 and rt 210 so once that is completed that will be about 10 minutes away.

The average sale of a single family home in Nocatee in the last 6 months is $792,675.  The market in the area is very hot.  Most of the homes are spending 5-6 days on the market, going to multiple offers and more than likely closing above list price.  If you are looking at the past 6 months of sales, the average sale to list price was 105%!  So if a property was listed at $700,000, you could expect for it to sell around $735,000.  Keep in mind this is the average sale to list price.  The highest we have seen in the past 6 months is 148.25% of list price.  So for that same $700,000 home you would pay 1,037,750! WOW!

There are new construction opportunities within the community that are selling very quickly.  They actually have homes starting within the high 500s and low 600s.  (Depending on builder this could or could not include lot and also dont forget about the upgrades).

They have the West End @ Town Center which if you didnt get from the name is right around the center where all the shopping is. Franklin Square at Crosswater. Settlers Landing has several builders in this community.  They are going to have a huge lake in the community and a golf cart path to the local schools. River Landing @ 20 mile they have intracoastal front lots with. Del Webb Nocatee is a gated 55+ new construction community within Nocatee.  It has its own amenity center with lap pools, wine bar and tennis.

As of now they do not really have any move in ready new construction.  Their “Quick Move In Homes” are at least 6 months out.  Every builder is optimistic about the supply chain issues they are having and are hoping to shorten that time this year.
