Fort Lauderdales Neighborhoods

Fort Lauderdale Real Estate and New Construction are not normally words that appear together when discussing the market of Fort Lauderdale Single Family Homes for Sale. The old rule of real estate that “the best lots were built on first” certainly applies to a city such as Fort Lauderdale which has natural barriers to expansion such as the beautiful shore of the Atlantic Ocean. The areas closest to the famed Fort Lauderdale Beach and the waterways that surround downtown Fort Lauderdale are made up of neighborhoods that were largely built out in the 1950’s, such as Coral Ridge, Rio Vista and Harbor Beach.

Understanding Fort Lauderdale Real Estate

For years the western borders of Broward County, the Everglades seemed to be miles from civilization but not any longer, as the beautiful suburban cities of Westin have been built and in fact have become the home to the Cleveland Clinic of Florida which once stood on the beach road of Fort Lauderdale, A1A. Even the eastern consciousness of locals has moved further West over the years. Once it was common to hear, “I won’t live west to US1”, then it became Andrews Avenue, Highway 95, and then even the Turnpike. The truth of the matter is that people settling in the Fort Lauderdale area often simply want to be close to the beach. However, often where they are moving from the definition of close to the beach may mean a much longer distance than we are used to in South Florida. As far as you can go in Broward County you are never more than a half hour to the beach, close is completely relative. After this past winter around the country it’s really just the beautiful weather of South Florida that many crave.
