Buying a home in Nocatee
April 24, 2018 | Katy and Matt Yanossy
We love Nocatee! And we love helping others become more familiar with the area. If you are interested in buying a home in Nocatee, let us help! One good place to start in your home search is to get pre-approved. Talk with a loan specialist about the best loan options for you, your down payment and interest rates. This will all help determine what you can afford monthly, and will determine your budget for a new home in Nocatee.
Another factor to keep in mind is all Nocatee neighborhoods will have their own HOA fees and CDD fees. We will want to break this down monthly and factor it into your budget. All Nocatee neighborhoods have access to Nocatee’s main amenities such as the water park, dog parks, trails and more. However, some neighborhoods in Nocatee also feature their own amenities like pools, playgrounds, parks and clubhouses. Determine if this is important to you and your family. You would then have the option of going to your neighborhood’s pool that is sure to be less crowded and low key or pack everyone up and head to the water park!

Do you have a preference when it comes to Duval County or St. Johns? Nocatee offers neighborhoods in both counties, though many more in St. Johns than Duval.
Do you want easy access to main roads? Some Nocatee neighborhoods are very close to US 1 making things easy for commuters. While other residents are tucked further into the community and may spend 10-15 minutes driving just to get out of Nocatee.
