With frigid northeast and Canadian winters, the purchasing of a condominium in sunny South Florida is nothing new. What is new, is where people are looking to re-locate or buy a second home. Many who had their sights set on Miami are now opting to buy in Fort Lauderdale where real estate values are rising, but still offer a better value. With easy access to the beach, five-star dining options and high-end shopping, Fort Lauderdale is in the middle of becoming a 24-7 destination and homebuyers are taking notice.
This transformation recently caught the attention of the Wall Street Journal that outlines Fort Lauderdale’s rise from a spring break haven to a city whose time has come.
