The rental market is very limited in the Fort Lauderdale beach and Intracoastal areas. Properties are renting quickly and at higher prices than just a year ago. I have rented three 2 bedroom, 2 bath condos in the last 2 weeks – all three were rented for the full asking price.

For those looking to rent before buying, I have one 2 bedroom 2 bath unfurnished annual rental available in the Berkley South Condominium located at 3015 N. Ocean Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. The owner requires a current credit report with score, proof of income, and application with prior residence and employment history and character references prior to accepting an offer to rent.

Berkley South 17A is a large corner unit with the best floor plan in the building. This two bed and two bath residence is unfurnished and offers spectacular views of the ocean, city, and intracoastal waterway. Hurricane impact glass has been installed on all openings. The living areas have laminate wood floors and there is carpet in each bedroom. The large eat-in kitchen has been updated with granite countertops and has a window above the kitchen sink. One of the most popular features in this particular corner unit is the massive closet space. There are three huge walk in closets in addition to the 2 closets in the guest bedroom.

Berkley South is a popular condominium building nestled in between the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean with direct beach access. Amenities include a heated freshwater pool on a 40,000 sq. ft. deck, fitness facilities, tennis court and BBQ area. There is 24 hr. security and one covered parking space under the building. An additional covered parking space can be rented for $25/month. BEST LOCATION close to anything you would want or need. For more information on this rental, or if you are looking to purchase in Berkley South or another condominium in the beach area, please contact me today as inventory is shrinking daily.

It is with pleasure I present another listing in the Corinthian Condominium. Residence 10F is a two bed and two bath waterfront condominium, second in from the SE Corner, offering direct ocean and Intracoastal waterway views, as well as the beautiful greenery of the protected Bonnet Preserve. These views are enjoyed day and night from inside the living, dining and kitchen areas through floor to ceiling windows and sliders. Entry to this residence is from a semi private foyer through a double door entrance. The large and bright kitchen and breakfast areas have southern facing vistas. The utility area adjacent to the kitchen accommodates a full size side by side washer dryer. The spacious master bedroom features plantation shutter window treatments, en suite master bath and walk in closets. Each bedroom has city skyline views. This residence enjoys one covered assigned tandem parking under the building, with generous guest parking on the lobby level for a second car.. Maintenance is paid quarterly but is the equivalent of $768 per month. 10F is being offered at $449,900.

While the Corinthian was completed in 1975, it has been well maintained and recently renovated, and is known to be one of the most financially sound buildings in the area. It is located directly on the Sunrise Intracoastal Waterway and is a wonderful place to observe the upcoming Annual Winterfest Boat Parade, Air & Sea Show and Fireworks on the 4th of July. The building amenities include a newly designed lobby, semi private elevators, heated rooftop pool and Corinthian Club with a full kitchen, ideal for entertaining. A 3 room fitness center on the penthouse level offers direct views of the ocean, with long views up and down the Intracoastal Waterway.. The Corinthian on the Intracoastal is a luxury gated waterfront condominium with 24 hour security and parking attendants. Given the lack of inventory in the area and building, this residence will likely not remain on the market long, and I encourage you to contact me today for a showing. If you are looking to list in The Corinthian, please contact me for a listing presentation.
