Fort Lauderdale – The Venice of America
With its miles of beautiful waterways, Fort Lauderdale is known as The Venice of America. For
boating enthusiasts, there is no better location in the country. Fort Lauderdale offers miles of
fine beaches, a vibrant city life with fine dining, multiple museums and a world class performing
arts center. Fort Lauderdale also has a growing international airport and one of the busiest
cruise ports in the world. Buyers can choose from a desirable selection of single family homes
and condominiums offering spectacular waterfront locations. In addition, pre-construction opportunities are currently available at Riva, Auberge Beach Residences & Spa, Paramount Fort Lauderdale, Gale Fort Lauderdale Hotel and Residences and the just announced Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences. Contact Brian Hero to view the many fine offerings of waterfront homes and condominiums currently for sale.
There was a time when Fort Lauderdale was defined as a haven for both retirees and spring breakers. These days that dynamic has changed, with an influx of baby boomers from all over the country, as well as sophisticated international buyers from all over the world. Fort Lauderdale offers luxurious small scale city living on a relaxed pace.
During the past few years, several new luxury resort hotels have made their mark on an already sophisticated & active destination. Recent resort offerings include the W, Ritz Carlton and Hilton, all with private residences, as well. A new luxury hotel from Four Seasons is also proposed for Fort Lauderdale Beach.
The downtown, too, has undergone an evolution: Las Olas Boulevard is filled with new and sophisticated shops & restaurants and new condominiums now line the riverfront.
Fort Lauderdale is a world-class destination that draws a sophisticated international clientele
In addition to beautiful beaches and beautiful weather, Fort Lauderdale has more than 300 miles of navigable waterways and is known as both the Yachting Capital of the World and the Venice of America. Boat & yacht enthusiasts know that Fort Lauderdale is just minutes to the ocean and hours to the Bahamas, hence its desirability.
Las Olas Boulevard & downtown offer a multitude of unique shopping, dining & nightlife options. Fort Lauderdale is also a cultural mecca, with stunning venues such as the Broward Center for the Performing Arts along with the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art and the Museum of Discovery and Science.
Shopping is world-class. The Galleria Mall, anchored by Neiman Marcus, Dillard’s and Macy’s, is steps from the beach on Sunrise Boulevard and offers fine dining restaurants such as The Capital Grille and Seasons 52.
West of the city, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has added a Vegas-like flavor to the area, with more than a dozen clubs and restaurants in addition to the casino.
The top-rated Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is one of the country’s fastest growing airports and offers easy access with over 600 flights a day and non-stop service to more than 100 cities. The airport is a 10 minute drive from both downtown and the beaches and 5 minutes from Port Everglades, one of the world’s largest cruise ports.
The real estate market in Fort Lauderdale continues to remain strong and desirable
The economic fundamentals in Fort Lauderdale continue to remain strong. Continued job growth and the influx of wealthy baby boomers has been beneficial for the local economy and the real estate market.
Greater Fort Lauderdale attracts more than 10.1 million annual visitors and many of these upscale visitors desire to become residents once they experience the lifestyle that Fort Lauderdale has to offer.
The desirability and scarcity of waterfront property means values will only continue to increase in the long run due to laws of supply and demand. Downtown and the surrounding areas will continue to grow to keep up with the increased population growth. A multitude of factors make now the time to consider an investment in Fort Lauderdale. Prices are at an attractive level and values will only increase as the city continues to evolve into a world-class resort destination.
