Pompano Beach is a city north of Fort Lauderdale. The market in Pompano Beach generally commands prices which are lower than their counterparts in Fort Lauderdale but all this could change as the city moves foward on a major beach redevlopement project. The beach area of the city is primarily high rises condos, including the beautiful new Oceanside condominium development, just across from Pompano Beach.
Condos along the Pomano Beach shoreline are a more affordable housing option than similar properties that can be found along other south florida beaches and yet the city is in very close proximity to both Fort Lauderdale and Hillsboro to the north. Over the years the city has lacked the draw and prestige of its neighboring cities, but as redevelopment takes hold, the future is bright for the City of Pompano Beach.
