Ft Lauderdale offers a great range of single family homes for sale.
Currently there are just over 1309 homes for sale in this price range $400K – $800K

When looking at homes in this price range it is important to note the tradeoff between size of home and location for homes in this price range – I discuss this more below.

We can see from this report that there is a good spread of inventory across all price points.

What is important to note – and something as a Fort Lauderdale 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 point – homes in this price range in popular gay friendly neighborhoods will often be smaller in both square footage AND in 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.

In my experience as a Gay Realtor – sometimes 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 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.

The median price for a 5 or more bedroom home in Fort Lauderdale is $599,000 and generally a 5 or more bedroom home is around 3400 – 3500 square feet.

Most Fort Lauderdale Real Estate Agents and Realtors will tell you that these last two charts – for 4 bedroom and 5 bedroom homes are the most telling.

You can the median sq ft price for 4 – 5 bedroom homes is $184.00 – $169.00 respectively – a dramatic drop from the median prices per square foot for 2-3 bedroom homes of $354.00 and $256.00.

The drop reflects the absolute tradeoff between location and home size. Typically homes in popular gay friendly neighborhoods in this price range are 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!
