Rental demand is high depending upon which zip code you are looking in; end users on the beach 33019 are mostly seasonal Canadiens and Europeans escaping the cold, further west 33021 is more single family with a mix of condos as well..

Listings take up to 6 months depending on the area and price asked vs the value of the property and competing properties . Closing takes min. 60 days even for cash offers. If you are interested in listing a home, please contact me directly to discuss what my group offers for loyal customers to make sure the property we commit to sell is valued and listed at most competitive price in the right market.

Yes....and No.
Your question is on the front of the mind of every home owner and buyer.
On my blog I have created charts showing both price and SP/SF for communities in Dunedin and Palm Harbor, Fl. 40% of these communities show attributes of increasing value. The others are establishing bottom are still seeking. It will be a community dependent question.

Consult a real estate professional for the details regarding the communities in which you have interest. Data from aggregate websites and national trends are of NO value in this regard.

If you are serious about a home purchase or sale, you need to call a pro.

Best of success to you.

Hello: It appears that no one can perdict the future especially as far as the economy goes? It does seem that our real estate market is starting to pick up a bit. I have noticed a slight increase in the price of the properties coming on the market. A top economist for the National Association of Realtors said the other day that he does not think that the banks are going to flood the market with the "shadow inventory of foreclosure" due to the fact that if they did it would only drive prices lower than they already are. If you are ready to start your search for a new home here at the beach I would be happy to assist you. I am a full-time top producing agent with Atlantic Properties International here in Ft. Lauderdale. You can contact me any time.

They are all very safe communities.
The farther west you go, the newer the community.
Newer communities have more features.
I believe they ALL have numerous hot tubs, but we can check and confirm.
Nice to hear you are coming to Florida - Broward County has so much to offer!

Wayne Solomon, P.A. answered:
I work with many investors in the Broward County areas. They are buying in a few areas of Fort Lauderdale and they buy a lot in Coral Springs. So I would say yes as all my investors are purchasing to hold and rent out rather then flipping.

Angela Schrager answered:
It's an excellent time to buy anything down here in South Florida - mortgage rates are at an all time low, and properties are priced aggressively to sell. We're seeing regular sellers competing with the distressed properties so you're able to select from everything on the market, not just foreclosures and short sales.

If you're not already working with a Realtor, I'd love to help you find the perfect condo in Fort Lauderdale - there are some super choices. Just let me know what your criteria is.

Best of luck!

Alma Kee answered:
Short Sales with "ficticious" asking prices are to blame for the misconception.

We need to ask NAR to prohibit any Short Sale listings on the MLS until/if at least the 1st mortgage lender has approved the Seller and the price!

It would alleviate a lot of needless waste of buyers and Reatlor's time and would also prevent prices from sliding down further.

Wouldn't it be nice to not have to explain all of the pitfalls and "ficticious" short sale listing prices?

The assessed value does not always reflect the market value. When it comes to purchase you should focus on CMA-what similar properties were sold for in the last 3-6 months.
In cases where homeowners filed for a homestead exemption-The Save Our Homes cap limits increases in assessed value of Homesteaded properties to no more than 3% per year -- regardless of how much more the properties increase in market value. ... more

Hi Nermin,

What is the address of the property you are interested in? Without knowing the address and community it's hard to give you an answer.

Thanks for your inquiry. Last year we sold a one bedroom fully furnished unit at 400 Leslie Dr for $73k. I'd love to view the updates you've done to your unit and see how it compares. Leslie drive condos are a great value for buyers seeking waterfront. Give me a call to set up an appointment to discuss price. 786-704-8482.

My NC Homes Team answered:
Of course they do, the question is really do you? You need to be an expert in your industry after-all that's why people come to us. You need to know your market inside out and be able to immediately add value to the transaction if given the opportunity. Consumers will buy when they feel confidant, and feel that their working with someone who cares about them, and will look out for their best interests. If they feel that their agent is mainly worried about the next paycheck they have no reason to feel confidant about their agent or the market. Finally you need to understand we have no control over anything but our attitudes and actions. We can't control the job market, we can't control what the talking heads on TV say, we can combat misinformation with timely, local and accurate information. This is what give consumers the confidence to move forward. ... more

Nicole Marks Mason answered:
Hi Darren. I don't think the real estate market will be stabilized in Broward County or anywhere in South Florida for a long time. Until the economy improves significantly and the huge inventory of foreclosures and short sales are depleted, prices will continue to drop. However, that being said, homes are selling for fair market value. Price your home fairly it sells. Price it high it won't sell.

Heath Coker answered:
Find an experienced local broker, although few re-sell timeshares where I am on Cape Cod. You will find that time shares are not easy to value or re-sell. Look in the public record to see if any have been sold or better re-sold in the last year. That will tell you about activity and you might be able to tell who helped with the sale. call that person/agent/attorney/title company. ... more
