Hi home buyer:
5000 N Federal Highway is a very safe area of Fort Lauderdale. It is not Lauderdale-by-the-sea, which is more east. As advised, you can go on sheriff's website or just google to get crime statistics. If needed, I can get this information for you and send it to you.
This area has some wonderful homes and great schools and is close to beaches, shops, restaurants, etc. It is seconds from my office and 2 minutes from my home, and of course, my market area. 5000 sits at Commercial Blvd and Federal Highway. You can also click on http://www.walkscore.com
to see what is within walking distance of wherever you are looking at. Just put the address in there.
If you need any assistance from a good neighborhood Realtor, please contact me. Thanks,
