Selling Your Home – Think First Impressions

A Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtors Guide
to Selling Your Home

Here is the first in my series of guides to selling your home.

1. First Impressions Count!

It’s a big decision in selling your home – and what is important are the first impressions your home makes to prospective buyers!

As a Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtor it is really disappointing to see the number of homes that are listed for sale where the owner and/or agent has not made a really good first impression and some of this I think has to do with objectivity and some perhaps agents reluctance to make recommendations to sellers.

As a seller you need to be objective and too put yourself in a customer’s shoes and that can be hard to do if you’ve lived in a home for months even years.

Condos $200K – $400K

Fort Lauderdale Condos
$200,000 – $400,000

Welcome to my Fort Lauderdale Gay Realtors Guide to condos for sale priced from $200,000 – $400,000 – focusing in on oceanfront condos.

Fort Lauderdale offers a great choice of condos in this price range

Search Condos $200K – $400K

 

Currently there are 2419 Fort Lauderdale condos for sale in this price range – so there is plenty of selection.

Of these 2419 condos currently for sale 440 are oceanfront units

In our last post for September / October 2016 there were 2196 condos for sale of which 417 condos were oceanfront units.

Our market analysis report for these condos for sale is presented below.

 $$ Beds/Baths SF/FF List Price
High 3 / 3 1,800 $400,000
Low 0 / 1 310 $209,900
Avg 1 / 1 1,034 $322,863
Med 1 / 1 1,045 $329,000

We can see from this report that the average price for an Oceanfront condo for sale is $322,863 – this being for a bedroom 1 bathroom unit of 1034 square feet – this is down ever so slightly from our last post when the average price for an Oceanfront condo for sale was $323,445 – this being for a bedroom 1 bathroom unit of 1038 square feet

We can also see from this report that the median price is $329,000 – this being for a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom oceanfront condo for sale of 1045 square feet – this is also down ever so slightly from our last post when the median price for an Oceanfront condo for sale was $329,900 – this being for a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom oceanfront condo for sale of 1027 square feet

What is important to note however from this report is that these numbers represent condos for sale across Greater Fort Lauderdale and do not take into account individual neighborhoods.

Fort Lauderdale like any city varies by the block and while overall many parts of Fort Lauderdale are popular with the gay community – there are some communities / neighborhoods that are less popular – ones that as a Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtor – I personally would not recommend.

Pricing Analysis
Oceanfront Condos

Here is our Fort Lauderdale Pricing Guide for Oceanfront Condos priced from $200,000 to $400,000.

$300,000 – $349,999 139
$350,000 – $400,000 145
Total 440

We can see from this report that the inventory of units for sale is fairly evenly spread for units priced $250,000 – $400,000

Also encouraging is that there are oceanfront units for sale that are priced under $249,999 – with 45 units for sale (which is up slightly from 43 oceanfront condos for sale as in our last post).

Important for buyers of Fort Lauderdale oceanfront condos to take into account – is that often times there will be a trade-off – between unit size and neighborhood / location.

Often time buyers come in with a specific desire to be in a popular gay neighborhood – however they find that their options in this price range can be limited.

As one of our companies top Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtors – I can guide you on other options, in communities that are gay friendly and popular with the Gay/LGBT community.

There are however still many great neighborhoods /communities that are popular with the Gay/LGBT community that are well worth considering.

A popular neighborhood with Fort Lauderdale Gay Realtors including myself is Pompano Beach – especially the oceanfront strip!   This is a great neighborhood set between the Intracoastal and the Ocean and the City of Pompano has undertaken major redevelopment making this a world class destination!

Currently in the popular and gay friendly neighborhood of Pompano Beach here in Fort Lauderdale there are 48 “beach / oceanfront” condos for sale.

$400K – $800K

Welcome to my Fort Lauderdale Gay Realtors guide on homes for sale priced between $400K – $800K.  Fort Lauderdale has some great homes for sale in this price range including homes in some of the most popular gay neighborhoods!

Search Homes $400K – $600K

Ft Lauderdale offers a great range of single family homes for sale.
Currently there are 1727 homes for sale in the price range $400K – $800K

It is important to note that this is down  from the 1760 homes for sale as in our last post for September / October and 1806 homes for sale as in our prior post for July / August 2016

As one of our companies top Fort Lauderdale Gay Realtors I stress to my Gay and LGBT clients that when looking at homes in this price range it is important to note the very real trade-off between size of homes AND the location of homes in this price range – I discuss this more below.

Total 1,727

We can see from this report that there is a good spread of inventory across all price points – with the highest levels of inventory being for homes priced under $499,999 – this is the same as in our last 7 posts!

What is important to note – and something as a Fort Lauderdale Gay Realtor that I point out to my Gay and LGBT clients – is that while there is a good range of homes for sale across all price points..

Homes in this price range in popular gay friendly neighborhoods will often be smaller in both square footage AND in the number of bedrooms 

Typically homes in this price range are also likely to include many mid-century homes and mid-century homes that have been upgraded/updated.

Working with Gay Realtors and hunting homes based solely on price can be challenging as it sets expectation – and while we here in Ft Lauderdale have many lovely larger new construction homes

They are often then to be in neighborhood and communities spread across Greater Fort Lauderdale vs in some of the more popular neighborhoods here in Fort Lauderdale central!

I set out below a guide to prices by bedroom – as a real estate agent I often find this information helps my clients when they are thinking and comparing homes based on square foot prices.

Note Their is an absolute trade-off between location and home size.

Typically homes in popular gay friendly neighborhoods in this price range are older, smaller and have a higher sq ft price.

This is a very important consideration for Gay and LGBT home buyers – and as a Fort Lauderdale Realtor I have seen a number of buyers opt to purchase larger homes far away from the popular gay neighborhoods and other who settle for much smaller homes right in the heart of some of the most popular Gay Friendly Fort Lauderdale neighborhoods!

What is important to note however from this report is that these numbers represent condos for sale across Greater Fort Lauderdale and do not take into account individual neighborhoods.

Fort Lauderdale like any city varies by the block and while overall many parts of Fort Lauderdale are popular with the gay community – there are some communities / neighborhoods that are less popular – ones that as a Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtor – I personally would not recommend.

We can see from this report that the inventory of units for sale is fairly evenly spread for units priced $250,000 – $400,000

Also encouraging is that there are oceanfront units for sale that are priced under $249,999 – with 43 units for sale (which is down from 57 oceanfront condos for sale as in our last post).

Important for buyers of Fort Lauderdale oceanfront condos to take into account – is that often times there will be a trade-off – between unit size and neighborhood / location.

Often time buyers come in with a specific desire to be in a popular gay neighborhood – however they find that their options in this price range can be limited.

As one of our companies top Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtors – I can guide you on other options, in communities that are gay friendly and popular with the Gay/LGBT community.
