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 2204 Fort Lauderdale condos for sale in this price range – so there is plenty of selection.

Of these 2204 condos currently for sale 380 are oceanfront units

In our last post for December 2015 / January 2016 there were 2190 condos for sale of which 383 condos were oceanfront units.

The Price analysis report below show the inventory of condos for sale in each of the price ranges.

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.
