Oakland Park Real Estate Market

Back in 2004 this Oakland Park Realtor watched attentively as the residents of the estate homes at the rear of Oaktree Golf Course had a great deal to be thankful for. Oakland Park Real Estate was booming, and it had just been announced that the long-closed Oaktree Golf Course was about to have a new life ahead of it. With Homes for Sale in Oakland Park selling at new high prices nobody was surprised to hear that the Oaktree Gold Course was about to reopen with a new face.

Most expensive Waterfront Home Ever Sold in Fort Lauderdale

Just the other day we discussed the most affordable Waterfront homes of Fort Lauderdale in a neighborhood called Lauderdale Isles it seems appropriate that we follow it up with a story reporting about the most expensive waterfront home sold in the Fort Lauderdale real estate market.  In addition to being the highest priced Fort Lauderdale waterfront to sell this property at 5 Harborage Isle Drive will be one of those Fort Lauderdale real estate landmarks that tour boats like the Jungle Queen and the Fort Lauderdale water taxi will tell stories about as they pass for years to come. In addition to being the most expensive piece of residential real estate ever sold in the Fort Lauderdale real

As a Fort Lauderdale Real estate agent who does a great deal of business at the Fort Lauderdale condominium directly across the street from this property, the Tides, we would like to congratulate the new owner of this property William McIntyre, of the Grateful Pallete.  The Shooters location has been a prime spot of Fort Lauderdale real estate for years, and one of the most pleasant spots for Fort Lauderdale Waterfront dining. The owners of units at the Tides at Bridgeside Square have long been supporters of this neighbor just across the street from their front door and now have much to look forward to.

Over the last year, post the filing of bankruptcy by Shooters, this prime piece of Fort Lauderdale Real Estate was subject to many rumors. The one that

As Fort Laudedale Realtors it has recently been brought to our attention that a mass mailing has gone out to Fort Lauderdale Real Estate owners, in both single family homes and condominiums that in our opinion is very much a scam. I am confident that this mailing reaches way beyond the South Florida area but did want to bring it to the attention of our readers who own property in Fort Lauderdale. 

The letter and envelope start off with things like “Official Court Document”, “Certified Record Retrieval”, and the call of urgency “ No other notice will be sent”, and of course the opportunity to purchase a certified copy of your deed for $50.00 plus postage. Most likely you received a certified copy of your deed along with your title policy a few weeks

Getting Ready to Move

Moving Short Distance or Long Distance Planning is the Key

Honestly there are few people who will tell you that moving is a great experience but the ones who do simply have taken a whole different approach to the process and it’s these people who should guide you to making your move a pleasant experience. Most often when you hear that a move went seemlessly in is because plannning was a major part of the process.Once you start looking for a new home with your Realtor you know a move is on the horizon, so this is the same time you should start thinking about preparing for the move. If you need to sell your home, or simply have to pack up a rental preparing long in advance will make the entire process less stressful.

Think of the

If would be unfair of  me to post today about Fort Lauderdale Real Estate, it would be unfair to dwell on the tough years that have been faced by many with the economic downturn that has faced our country. It would be unfair to dwell on the optimistic booster shoot I feel we must share with each other, each day, to remind ourselves of our resilance and that there are better times ahead.

Today it is only fair to see the inspiration, and feel the gratitude for where we are today. Today we need to think about all the people who were lost. All the families that were hurt and the opportunities that never happened for the talented souls that were lost ten years ago today. I am inspired by their children and loved ones who have gone on to stand strong. I am

The Essentials to Getting a Home Sold

by: Marc Rasmussen – Sarasota Real Estate


Selling your home in a market that is flooded with available homes is still possible. Home owners looking to sell should use the following guideline as a way to move their home quickly in any type of market.

1. Price your home to sell. While most home owners value their home above all other possessions, realistically the price of the home should meet market pricing in the area. A market survey will show what comparable homes in your area are selling for, and pricing your home within that range will help you move the property fast. However, home owners should keep in mind that the price should be a little higher than anticipated to allow for negotiations during the buying

Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Homes to benefit from Sunrise Bridge Renovation

Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Home discussions always lead to a Fort Lauderdale Real Estate discussion about bridge heights, and ocean access. Its been talked about for years and now it appears that work on the Sunrise Boulevard Bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale is scheduled to begin. This project is long on the wish list for certain owners of Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Homes.

The State of Florida has called the Ft. Lauderdale, 50 plus year old bridge structurally deficient,  and the  three-year project consists of demolishing two existing two- lane spans and replacing them with an extra lane in each direction.
