Beach Condos – You Can Rent & Use!

A Fort Lauderdale
Gay Realtors Guide

Many Fort Lauderdale Gay Realtors are often asked by buyers and real estate agents alike – Are there any “affordable” Ft Lauderdale Beach condos that you can use and then when you want you rent when you are not using them!

The answer is yes.

Ft Lauderdale has a great range of beach condos – and in this post I focus in on affordable Beach Studios in popular gay friendly neighborhoods – units that buyers can use when they want and then rent then when they are not if use – if they so choose.

Here is my guide to Beach Condos – Condos you can rent at least 3 times per year as well as use your self!

Ft Lauderdale Beach
Condos – Great Prices!

Currently there are 287 beachfront condos for sale that you can rent a minimum of 3 times per year as well as use your self! 

In this post I focus in on affordable condo units – units offered for sale under $399,999  – and there is a great range of options here in gay friendly Fort Lauderdale with 147 units for sale in this price range!

Here is the current market pricing report for these more “affordable” Ft Lauderdale Oceanfront / Beachfront condos for sale.

Price Range Quantity
$149,999 or under 30
$150,000 – $199,999 12
$200,000 – $249,999 8
$250,000 – $299,999 27
$300,000 – $349,999 36
$350,000 – $399,999 34
Total 147

We can see from this report that there is a fairly good range of options across nearly all of these prices ranges – with the bulk of units for sale being priced above the $250,000 price point!  

Important to note is that the majority of these units are 1 bedroom 1 bathroom condos for sale –  In our last post I focused in on studio units.

It is exciting as a Fort Lauderdale Realtor to be able to show gay and LGBT buyers from the USA, Canada and abroad how affordable Fort Lauderdale Beach condos actually are – and buyers love the bonus these units are able to be rented when you’re not using them too!

My Thoughts

These three complexes while all set in Hotel’s represent two very different styles of living.

The Wave

The Wave – is absolute “direct oceanfront” – the complex is literally right on the beach and you can rent your unit!

The complex offers a great resort style heated pool next to the beach.  There is a Jacuzzi, a state of the art fitness center, aerobics/yoga room and an entertainment lounge with billiards.

The complex offers concierge services as well as 24/7 valet parking.

There is a business center, a mini market and a wine store. 

A nice features is that you are close to the famous boardwalk, many restaurants, the port, shopping malls as well as casinos.  You are course right next to Trump Hollywood too!

This complex is pet friendly and pets under 20lbs are welcome!

The Q Club & Conrad

Q Club and Conrad are both Hilton run properties – and are superb complexes set on the Beach across and directly opposite to A1A.

As part of the Hilton Hotel condo owners can avail themselves of room service, cleaning, laundry and more.

The Q Club and Conrad are both set in North Beach which is a very popular gay destination – this area is home to Ft Lauderdale’s Gay beach and to many gay hotels and gay guest houses – so living in either means you are literally in the heart of a great gay / gay friendly community.

Q Club owners can be in residence up-to 120 days per year or longer by agreement.  There is an optional rental program available through Hilton too!

A nice feature of both is that you can have pets (with some restrictions)

The Tides

The Tides is another direct oceanfront complex – and the beachfront is superb – and you can rent your unit!

The tides offers 2 resort style pools, 2 fitness centers, a theater, a really tiki-hut and a mini market café,

The complex has 24hr security which is a great feature.

The Tides is also pet friendly two dogs are welcome  – the complex welcomes larger pets up to 40 pounds each!
