I reported on the Aquavita, Aquamar, Aqualuna, and Aquablu new developments in Fort Lauderdale and the incredible rush to buy preconstruction in South Florida, and the Wallstreet Journal also discussed the developers mad dash to buy all available land. The statistics they released for Miami reflect largely what is a trend in Fort Lauderdale as well, and that is the market is 100% back.


This time around it is here to stay as well, since developers seeded out speculators through the adoption of the Latin American style of financing, which is nearly always in cash and is across the board at least 50% down. All waterfront land is being bought and the price of condos built from 2003-2008 have increased an incredible 75%. Developers are willing to pay millions for acres of unbuilt land and the demand for these new condos is not slowing whatsoever with many new developments selling out before even breaking ground. If you are interested in a new construction condominium or are a developer looking for representation in a vacant lot sale, please contact me today

Fort Lauderdale and all of Florida has very fertile grounds and is ideal for those with a green thumb, however if you do not possess such gifts there are new trends making their way across the state. Living walls made of succulents require little effort, just a small amount of watering and lend stunning results. Pergolas with climbing wisteria or English roses are also a popular option and really add appeal over outdoor dining. Ficus grows tall and provides a natural privacy fence and is found widely in Fort Lauderdale. Not only do these add much curb appeal but provide shade, and privacy. Below are some local landscape architects to get started today!
