Why should investors look to the Jacksonville market?  

“Both the average sale price and the average rent in Jacksonville are less than Central Florida, which is appealing for investors,” explains Joe LaFleur, multifamily investment advisor at 100Units.

Sean McKenna, 100Units multifamily investment advisor who focuses on the Jacksonville market, adds, “Orlando and the Space Coast blew up over the past few years, and I think Jacksonville will be that next hot market. If you get in right now, it’s going to be an extremely lucrative investment. We’re seeing prices go up like crazy, but it has not quite peaked like Orlando.”
