The city of St. Augustine is located in St. Johns County. Officially part of the Jacksonville metro area, St. Johns County is just south/southeast of Duval County. Along with Duval, St. Johns is one of the five counties that make up the area known as Florida’s First Coast. This area is nicknamed the “First Coast” because it was the first part of the state to be colonized by Europeans. (St. Johns’ American history dates to 1821 when the city of St. Augustine was incorporated. St. Johns’ Spanish roots include its name, derived from San Juan del Puerto/Saint John of the Harbor, a Spanish mission.)
The median home cost is $389,800, while the national median cost is $291,700. However, in categories like health care, utilities and transportation, costs are less than elsewhere in Florida and across the U.S.
