Gay Friendly
Wilton Manors

This is my Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtor guide to Wilton Manors Home Prices.

Wilton Manors is a very gay friendly city and has one of the largest gay populations per capita in the USA.

As a gay Fort Lauderdale Realtor myself, my partner and I actually choose Wilton Manors as the city to call home and my office is located right on Wilton Drive – home to many gay bars, restaurants and more.

The popularity of this neighborhood with gay and LGBT buyers has really impacted on prices – especially over the last few years.

My Thoughts

Wilton Manors is a great community – and the city has plan to continue to improve.

There are new condominium / town home developments in the pipeline and Wilton Drive is slowly but surely becoming more of a Main Street and more pedestrian friendly. 

Both Wilton Manors and Fort Lauderdale actively market to the Gay and LGBT communities not only locally but also across the USA.

Most Fort Lauderdale Realtors both gay and straight recognize Wilton Manors as one of the most gay friendly neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale / South Florida. 

The improvement of the City combined with increased awareness is attracting more and more gay buyers to both Wilton Manors and surrounding neigborhoods.

Many Gay and LGBT buyers invest in improving their Wilton Manors homes, adding new kitchens, bathrooms, pools and more.  

These improvements add real value to the home and impact on home prices overall!

As a result I only see median sales prices for Wilton Manors Homes continuing to rise – and I predict that they will soon be above $500,000!

I hope you have enjoyed this post on Wilton Manors Home prices
