I see lots of boarded up homes on the northside, but wow...89000+ vacant homes?  I wonder how this compares to other cities.

Its unfortunate that a good credible organization posts old data. Check with any Realtor, who knows what is going on in the market, and they will tell you that the stats are far better than these numbers. Some parts of town you cannot find a house available. Many owners still think people will chase a house, and what we are seeing is fewer are willing to do so. There are still alot of properties at the bank that need to be put back on the market. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next few months as the Fed wants to raise interest rates, how it affects the psyche of the home buyer.

I am sorry, but 2012, 2013 and 2014 numbers for this infographic are just irresponsible in such a fast moving part of the economy.
And, that $115 will save Jacksonville from financial ruin. - Mayor John Peyton

“This is a game-changer. This is what I mean when I say taking Jacksonville to the next level.”
-Mayor Alvin Brown on new video boards at Everbank Field
