Poinsettia Heights with its great proximity to Wilton Drive, Federal Highway, the Beaches, Las Olas and down town is proving to be a magnet for many Gay and LGBT home / town home buyers.

I am seeing more and more Gay home buyers purchasing and improving homes – by renovating and adding pools, and while condos and town-homes for sale are few – many Gay and LGBT buyers are purchasing them due to their location and their amenities / waterfront location.

I am increasingly seeing more and more Gay Fort Lauderdale Realtors, Real Estate Agents as well as the “media” overall now actively featuring and promoting this neighborhood to Gay and LGBT buyers!
