"Didn't plan on hangin' out in Florida / Never was too good at standin' still / Suddenly it's lookin' like I'm gonna / Kill a few more days in Jacksonville." (Josh Turner, "Jacksonville")

Jacksonville Beach, Florida, is the type of place that makes you want to linger, and maybe even never leave. If you choose to settle here, don't be surprised if friends want to come over year-round or long-lost cousins manage to suddenly locate you_. _Jacksonville Beach, a holiday hot-spot, offers beautiful views from the beach in the hot summer months and, during the mild winters, the ocean will have to do too. Places for rent in Jacksonville Beach, Fl, are surprisingly affordable, and you can expect to pay about 10% less on average here than in the rest of Florida. On the downside, finding an available rental apartment in Jacksonville might be challenging; only a small percentage of properties offer long-term rentals. Don't be discouraged, though -- with some planning, perseverance and a mindset as bright as the Jacksonville weather, this is not impossible.

Finding an Apartment and Planning the Move

*Hunt in Winter *

Whether you plan to browse through an apartment complex or view townhouses for rent in Jacksonville Beach, remember that the winter is your friend. Trying to weave through the extra traffic caused by the holiday-goers in summer might just kill your excitement about relocating - and so will the heat. Unless you are a masochist in the mood for a sweat fest, avoid making the move during June, July or August.

*Be Prepared *

If you want to be the "chosen one" over other prospective tenants, prepare for the meeting with the landlord or agent. Then, if you like what you see, you can close the deal immediately. Remember that first impressions are important, so be on time, friendly and neatly dressed. Gather all needed documents in a binder: references from previous landlords, proof of income and the personal information required for a credit report. Have money ready to pay your security deposit immediately to secure the place for you.

Living the Dream

Jacksonville Beach is a neighborhood within greater Jacksonville, the largest city in Florida, so if you get tired of the beach, you can enjoy all the benefits city has to offer.

Shopping and Eating

Jacksonville Beach has shopping opportunities galore. Besides the grocery stores across the neighborhood, the pier at the beach side has interesting shops selling anything from golf accessories to boutique clothing and fine art. Of course, you'll find great seafood restaurants in the area, such as Joe's Crab Shack, Casa Marina Hotel and Restaurant, and Ellen's Kitchen, to name a few.

Getting Around

Living in Jacksonville Beach, you will enjoy walking everywhere because of the lovely scenery. Riding a bicycle is also popular here, or you can drive your car. A bus system runs between Jacksonville Beach and other neighborhoods in Jacksonville as well.

*Recreation and Entertainment *

Besides hitting the surf, there are many things to do recreation-wise in Jacksonville Beach. Parks abound and golf lovers enjoy the Jacksonville Beach Golf Club. A museum and history park provide insight, especially for new inhabitants, and a local theater group often performs plays. With plenty of bars and pubs in the area, Jacksonville Beach's nightlife is usually abuzz, and Freebird Live has become a hub for local and national musicians to give live performances.

With great shops, delicious food, pristine beaches and lots to do, Jacksonville Beach has much to offer residents. Add to that the relatively low cost of living, and you won't regret your choice to settle here.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
