Hallandale is a very nice area right on the coast line. It borders Miami- Dade and Broward. Its the city next to Aventura to the south and Pembroke Pines to the North which is also a very nice area. You are minutes away from the beaches and Aventura Mall!

Quel bon idee ! j'ai etudie le francais mais j'ai oblis tous.

See my blog on Trulia about why I think investing in Hallandale is such a great idea...new casinos, lower taxes than Hollywood, financially sound city, beautiful beaches/park, that's going to be renovated soon, etc. And, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville is coming soon to Hollywoood Browardwalk.

And, there are plenty of great deals/inventory at great prices, right now. I have lived in Hallandale for 11 years and am very active in the community. I am a realtor, mortgage broker, and LCAM property mgr. Let me know what kind of investment you're looking for. I can set up a customized search for you.

Bens,

from a bit over 16 years experience working in as a real estate broker and consultant in Southeast Florida, I would first ask if you sit in my office what your investment goal is, what property types you consider and what timeframe you have in mind.

If you think residential properties, the market has not quite reached bottom yet for houses and certainly not for condominiums, as apartments are called here. If you were to find an appealing deal now and you can hold for several years, an aggressive offer won't hurt though.

Commercial properties are totally different, especially depending on type of investment (warehouses, NNN investments etc). A detailed discussion here would go beyond this forum and should start with a list of your criteria and goals.

Please do contact me for a more detailed overview and what is currently possible in our market. I work in commercial as well residential real estate and would be delighted to answer your questions and to assist you.

Best,
Tobias Kaiser

Bonjour Bens! This is a great time to buy down here in South Florida. My husband David and I have our own boutique real estate brokerage and we specialize in working with European investors. Hallandale is certainly undergoing a tremendous change these days, especially since the Diplomat hotel was built. We see a big turnaround from the old days of being the epicenter for the senior citizen community to a newer, fresher Hallandale (recently renamed Hallandale Beach to go along with its new image). However, I have to be honest, its not a place I strongly recommend to my buyers. I think Fort Lauderdale has far more to offer as far as entertainment, restaurants, shopping, nightlife, activities etc. In my mind you also get a much better choice of properties to choose from. Hallandale is very much a condo community - Fort Lauderdale offers great bargains right now on condos, townhomes, lofts and single family homes. It all depends on your personal likes/dislikes and what you'd like to have and what you'd like to spend. Will you rent it out on an annual basis or would you prepare the home for weekly vacation rentals. We work with clients at all levels of the pricing spectrum and our goal is consistently to listen to our clients, understand their needs and wants and make the process as stress free as possible. If we can help in any way, don't hesitate to contact me. Good luck!

Hi Bens - Hallandale falls within Broward County just north of the Miami-Dade borderline. It is an established city with a mix of Real Estate choices (condo's, single family, multifamily, etc) and is within a stones throw of lot of commercial entities as well (retail, restaurants, small industrial, etc). Abiding by a code of ethics, I can't say much about Hallandale per se, so you'd really have to ask yourself some inherent questions to surmise your answer as to whether Hallandale is right for you. First question, have you visited the area and do you personally like it or not? Do you have relatives or friends there that you need to be close to? Why in particular Hallandale and not another city in South Florida? House or Condo? And so on.... South Florida has many other beautiful cities that are either along the ocean shore or within the mainland. There's Hollywood, Ft. Lauderdale, Aventura, BalHarbour, North Bay Village, Miami Shores, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and I could go on and on. You truly need to spend some quality time in South Florida visiting these unique places and absorbing the wonders that they each provide. I bet though that you will love each one for their own reasons and in the end make a wise decision. However, in the meantime, I hope this website for Hallandale offers some insight: http://www.hallandalebeach.org Best of luck! Jose Gomez - Miami Realtor http://josegomezfl.sef.mlxchange.com

Bens,
It's nice that you are interestes in investing in Florida real estate. We would recommend that you take some time to explore different area of Florida to become familiar with what each vacintity has to offer. One area we recommend considering is the Sarasota/Venive area. It is a wonderful safe location that features educational opportunities, beautiful beaches, superb climate, employment, and social & cultural experiences.

Good luck

I don't know much about the Hallandale area but from what I remember it is over on the east coast around Aventura.

If you are looking to invest I would look into SW Florida and espacially the North Port/Venice area. There are many very reasonably priced homes. You can search the MLS and get info on all the neighborhoods on my website listed below.

Good luck with your search!
