Fort Lauderdale Housing Inventory is Coming Back !

By Sue Weaver, Trulia

For buyers getting into the Fort Lauderdale, Florida housing market, it may seem like trying to jump into a car moving at high speeds.  Low inventory, competition from cash investors, and qualifying for a mortgage are obstacles to home ownership, especially for buyers in Fort Lauderdale and other Florida coastal communities. However, relief maybe on the way according to a recent article by Trulia “Breaking Stride – America’s Fastest Moving Housing Markets Slowing Down.”

The article explains why homes are coming off the market faster at a national level than a year ago. In fact, 66.6 percent of homes were still on the market after the 30 days between March 6th and April 6th of this year compared to 67.8 percent for the same timeframe in 2015. Conversely, for coastal markets that started to rebound in late 2012 into 2013, their inventories are increasing.  Florida coastal towns account for five of the 10 markets that slowed the most between 2015 and 2016, with slightly better inventory than last year.

Florida Coastal Slowing Housing Markets
# U.S. Metro Median Home Value, April 2016 % of homes still for sale after one month April 2016 % of homes still for sale after one month April 2015 Percentage Point difference in share still for sale, 2016 vs 2015
1 Fort Lauderdale, FL $210,000 69.6% 67.1% 2.5 points
2 West Palm Beach, FL $213,050 72.2% 70.0% 2.2 points
3 Cape Coral-Fort Myers, FL $214,900 72.0% 67.9% 4.1 points
4 North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton, FL $239,000 72.4% 67.8% 4.6 points
5 Miami, FL $250,000 75.4% 70.8% 4.3 points
Note: Among the 100 largest U.S. metros. The one month shares and the difference are rounded to the nearest percentage point, and the difference was calculated before rounding; therefore, the rounded difference might not equal the difference between the rounded shares.

 

Fort Lauderdale remains the tightest of the Florida coastal markets. Fortunately, there is a silver lining. There isn’t as much competition from cash investors since median home values continue to rise. Luckily, Fort Lauderdale’s median home values are not rising as quickly as the other Florida coastal cities, and remain at an affordable $210,000 median sales price as of April 2016. Another contributor to this market slowdown could point to condominium developers, who are investing in Fort Lauderdale and increasing inventories.  According to Trulia, the inventory of all home types in Fort Lauderdale increased 2.5 percent between 2015 and 2016 with 69.6 percent still on the market after 30 days compared to 67.1 percent in 2015.

If you are considering buying in Fort Lauderdale, there is no time like the present.  Inventories are increasing, the median home value is still affordable, and interest rates are still relatively low.  So contact Eric Miller at FortLauderdaleGroup.com to start your search today.

anticipated fanfare. Fort Lauderdale Condo Buyers eagerly lined up to buy in the Trump Fort Lauderdale and placed large deposits a long time ago as they waiting the opportunity to own part of a Trump Property facing incredible Fort Lauderdale Beach. The Trump Fort Lauderdale is complete and open, Cheers to another real estate success story. Well…not so fast… that was just the paragraph that most people expected to see in approximately 2009 on the planned opening day of the Trump Fort Lauderdale. In truth that day never came, and in 2016 with a much brighter future ahead, most of the investor lawsuits are settled, the building still sits vacant as it awaits to become the Conrad of Fort Lauderdale now named after Conrad Hilton, and now with his name no longer licensed to this property Mr. Trump has tried to move on from Fort Lauderdale Beach Condos to a run for President of the United States.

Fort Lauderdale Condominium the Trump – Now the Conrad !

The very white, 24-story tower is soon to become a mix of a luxury hotel and Fort Lauderdale Condominiums. After “the building” as we will refer to it, being his name is no longer

associated with it, sat empty for all these years, having never opened, was sold to a new group of investors, a major renovation was planned. Some estimates have placed the renovation in excess of $100 million dollars. Many residents of Fort Lauderdale Beach were happy just to see work begin on this monument to the South Florida real estate crash that sat empty, with no name, for many years. Having received few rave reviews for its architecture, which was supposed to look like a cruise ship, in a city that already had the famous Sheraton Yankee Clipper, changes to the exterior were welcome. Soon it will open as the luxury Hilton brand and be known as the Conrad.

Opening Day Approaches for A Fort Lauderdale Condominium Landmark

As the property get closer to its long awaited grand opening, it was reported that two to of the final court cases against the person whose name was licensed to help sell the project. And whose name is no longer associated with the building, were settled in an appeals court decision, that basically said Mr. Trump has no liability in this project as he was not the developer and clearly indicated this in numerous sales documents. Simply, the people who lost their deposits and attempted to get their money back from the Trump organization, were not going to be able to do so, because if they had read the sales documents clearly they would have known that he was not the developer.
With all this behind the future Conrad Hilton, many in Fort Lauderdale, look forward to the grand opening of this major property on Fort Lauderdale Beach, and hopefully someday people will simply forget and not call this well remembered eyesore of Fort Lauderdale Condos the, T….P Fort Lauderdale!
