Search Condos $200K – $400K

Currently there are 2322 Fort Lauderdale condos for sale in this price range – so there is plenty of selection.

Of these 2322 condos currently for sale 432 are oceanfront units

In our last post for March / April 2016 there were 2470 condos for sale of which 437 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 $200,000
Avg 1 / 1 1,041 $320,031
Med 1 / 1 1,066 $325,500

We can see from this report that the average price for an Oceanfront condo for sale is $320,031 – this being for a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom unit of 1041 square feet.

We can also see from this report that the median price is $325,500 – this being for a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom oceanfront condo for sale of 1066 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.

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.
