At 11:00 AM today Hands Across the Sand has organized a  gathering along Fort Lauderdale Beaches, from SE 17th , to Las Olas, to Birch State Park and North. A gathering of people who will stand as one voice against off shore drilling off our coasts.

Groups of all walks of life, friends, neighbors, co-workers, charity groups, and people we will meet along the way will stand together at 12:00 to draw our line in the sand to tell our governement and oil companies that we know we can do better.

Personally, as somone who selected Fort Lauderdale as the the place I wanted to live, and has a career as a Fort Lauderdale Realtor which allows me to share the place I call home with others. I  find great solice in seeing the turnout and knowing that if oil…

Ft. Lauderdale Statistics are Looking Good  

If you are thinking of looking for Homes for Sale in Ft. Lauderdale you may want to speak to a local expert with local numbers. 

Yesterday people who follow national real estate trends heard a number that housing starts had dropped 10% last month and reacted with gloom and doom.  I know that the housing starts number is a reflection of employment in the construction industry and we need employment to start growing. However, wouldn't it also make sense that for exsisting housing inventories  to shrink, housing resales to pick up, and prices to stablize, starts would have to drop. In the Fort Lauderdale Real Estate Market the housing starts number has never been a measure of the health of our market. With…

Short Sales in Fort Lauderdale - What buyers and sellers need to know - Patience is the Key !

We have all heard over and over again that "short sales don't work", "they never close", "banks don't approve them", and my personal favorite, "I'm going to lose the house anyway so why even try".

I can always seem to find a buyer of Fort Lauderale Real Estate willing to tell the story of the Ft. Lauderdale Short Sale he tried to buy that just did not happen. To all those people I can assure you of only two things, first, if you don't attempt a short sale it will never be approved. Secondly, short sales do take patience.

80% of the people losing their homes in the Fort Lauderdale Real Estate market never attempt a short sale. As of late banks have been moving…

Anyone who reads my blog posts knows that I have remained optomistic about the real estate market in South Floirda for many months. About 4 monhts back we started to see some trends in the FT. Lauderdale Real Estate market that indicated our market had bottomed out.

Notice I say trends because the timing of the real estate market, with every property and transacton being unique,  would be totally impossible. There is never going to be point where we can say definitely that a certain time and date represented the bottom of the Fort Lauderdale Real Estate market, no matter how hard the media tries.

Some things to ponder, sales of both Fort Lauderdale Condos and Fort Lauderdale Single Family homes rose last month by over 10%. For the same period the…
