What is it like and what are the costs a condo / town in Downtown Ft Lauderdale? – this is a very popular question posed too many of us Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtors.

Downtown living or living with approx 1/2 a mile from the city centre is for many Gay/LGBT buyers the ideal location. Downtown Ft Lauderdale offers great dining and shopping in and around Las Olas, there are the Muesuems, Gardens, the Riverwalk, The Preforming Arts Centre and so much more!

Living downtown next to the famous Las Olas Isles with their multi million dollar home and then being just 7-10 minutes drive to the beaches attracts many Gay and LGBT buyers

The great thing about downtown Ft Lauderdale is the wide range of prices which we can see in the market analysis report below

As a Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtor – I am often asked by my Gay and LGBT buyers – What is it like living Downtown Ft Lauderdale?

I answer as I am sure many Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtors would – it really is fabulous!!!

I personally love many of the smaller cafes, the weekend markets and strolling the streets and neighborhoods as well as The Riverwalk.

For many Gay/LGBT buyers what they love is the cities committment to hosting world class events – like the Las Olas Art Festival, The Summer Jazz Festival and more – there is always something to do if you live downtown!

And as you can see from the map below, if your living downtown – it is just a short drive to the beach!

The mix of prices across such a small area – reflects condos that that are smaller and in older more boutique complexes – the higher prices reflect newer luxury construction units.
