Cost of Living
I would recommend if anyone moves to Jacksonville Florida to work, check out
St Augustine, lower crime, fairly reasonable home prices as well as rentals, very friendly community.
We were transferred here, and currently do Not live in St Augustine, but probably will in a few months. Unless my husband is transferred. I would Not recommend for anyone to come here without doing a little background and homework about the area. High Rental prices, high utilities,and deposits also can be outrageous. Also to transfer a car registration it was over 400.00. Where we were living before moving here it was well affordable. Here, it's really not, Anyone moving here should be making around 60,000 to live decently. Their food is outrageous because most of it is shipped here. Your car insurance will go up at least 80.00 more per month because of the bad drivers, who I was told elderly, but from what I'm seeing, it's probably alcohol or drugs, making them drive like this. Then you have to deal with the different kind of climate, and allergies have increased in Jacksonville. So just be careful if you relocate here, because it's not that friendly either. That's why I suggested St Augustine, there are good people there, so move there, Not Jacksonville Florida. Hoping to leave this area for good soon. If you don't have family or friend's here already I would Not move here either. People not so nice at all, at least that's what I have found. and it's not that I haven't tried to be, they seem somewhat backwards and narrow minded in their ways.
