My office is located in 33308. This zip includes some of the most sought after areas to live in. It is great for commuters and is a beautiful area. It also offers guard gated communities as well. Bay Colony houses some of the who's who of Florida and the US. It is an exclusive deepwater multi million dollar community. Bay Colony Club is an inexpensive yet beautiful guard gated condo community with deepwater dockage and resort style amenities on the Intracoastal. Coral Ridge Country Club, Imperial Point, The Landings, also are pristine beautiful neighborhoods. I have visual tours of the surroundings on my website,

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 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,

Kind Regards,

If that area belongs to Lauderdale by the Sea I would recommend you contact the Broward Sheriff's Office (they have jurisdiction in that city) and ask to obtain crime statistics for that area (via a public request.)

Let me know if you need more information about that - I can also let you know how to compare crime statistics (ratio) among different cities.

Hope this helps

That is considered one of the safest areas of Fort Lauderdale. The are several private schools, churches and clubs in that vicinity. It is the area of Lauderdale-by-the Sea which is a quaint beachtown. It would be my pleasure to assist you with any other questions and send information on available properties.

"D" ~ Area crime statistics can be obtained from the Police Department, trulia, City-Data and several other sources. Here is what comes up online...

Lauderdale by the Sea is super beautiful area. There are many lovely hotels, restaurants, beaches, luxury condominiums and homes. Lauderdale by the Sea is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the EAST and The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway to the WEST.


Take a look at the Lauderdale by the Sea ~ Earth Cam I found online.

I live in this area, and have for almost 30 years. Although there is some crime everywhere, this is known to be one of our best areas. Very good schools and a beautiful Country Club called Coral Ridge Country Club. If I can help you further, please call or email me. I help a lot of clients re locate here. It would be a pleasure!
