Now that we know we're staying in Jacksonville for a while, we'd love to rent out the condo we own and buy a larger house (here's one we looked at the other day, very close to the beach and the Mayport base). As I'm sure you all know, now is the perfect time to buy; we're just praying for renters for the condo.
There are tons of neighborhoods in Jacksonville, several that we'd be happy in. Our goal is not necessarily to buy our dream home, but to buy a house that will be fairly easy to sell when it's time for us to transfer from Jacksonville. As far as preferences, Chet would love to live as close to the beach as possible and have a garage (finally!), and I just want more storage space and neighbors who make an effort to mow their grass!
