Strong Planning, Upgrades, and now Sales are protecting property Values

Eventhough the Fort Lauderdale Real Estate market faced tough times over the last five years many condominiums and neighborhoods throughout the South Florida area approached the challenges knowing exactly what was needed to make sure as the next cycle of real estate began with property values of their homes particpating at the start of the rebound.

Neighborhoods that aggressively went after banks that were not taking care of properties whcih were in or heading to foreclosure, were protecting the value of their entire community. Cities that placed liens and refused to back down on poorly care fored properties saw banks pay attention and neglected pools were closed down properly and lawns were mowed. Condominium and homeowners associations who budgeted for unpaid maintance, foreclosed on property (when appropriate) and refused to give in on high amounts owed at closing simply because the system was slow, today are seeing the benefits of a well run property.

As these properties do proceed through the foreclosure system many well runned communitues will see nice returns back into the funds they created for “unpaid HOA dues” often in large lump sums at closing. Sometimes other, not so well runned communites, will get lucky when a realtor gets involved after many missteps by a property and gets the community a check far larger than they legally were entitled to with a large piece of it going to their own legal fees, luckily creating a surprise win for the community.

One property where Eric Miller of Keller Williams Fort Lauderdale has been very involved, as a former board member and a current property owner is the Tides at Bridgeside Square. This condominium has stayed the course throughout the real estate downtown with a great board, management company, and building staff that has risen to occasion. The building has funded reserves in a responsible fashion, worked through the process of foreclosures and short sales consistantly and is a well funded property that is watching their efforts pay off.

In 2012 the building at 10 years old completed an exterior painting of the building, there was no accessment done to complete this project. Currently the unit owners are voting on final design presenations for the new hallways, which will be upgraded beyond the level of the original construction, inlcuding marble elevator lobbies, and a new more elegant feel throughout. This huge project is also fully funded through reserves.

Just a few weeks ago numerous sales were recorded at the Tides of Bridgeside Square. In 2011 the highest recored sale was $290,000 so far in 2012 sales have been recorded at $315,000, $359,000, and with only 8 units available for sale in a building of 246 great Fort Lauderdale Beach Area Condos 2012 is certainly going be seen as the turn around year for this and many other Fort Lauderdale Beach Properties. Eric Miller and Associates were involved in everyone of the sales mention above and are always here to help you with your needs at the Tides at Bridgeside Square and every east Fort Lauderdale Property.

Fort Lauderdale Real Estate Sees New Tower Proposal

Nothing can mark the start of a new Ft Lauderdale Real Estate cycyle for a community better that an application for a great project being placed infront of the city by a great local developer. It shows confidence in Fort Lauderdale Real Estate. A well known South Florida residential developer, Jorge Perez of the Related Group, has proposed a 26-story rental tower on the south bank of the New River.

The south side of the river, which is the area between downtown and the airport has always been less developed but often appeared in a holding pattern that was about to change. La Preserve a community of Glenn Wright Homes, is a south side community that got caught in the market downtown and is now very much alive. An investor has finished the remaining luxury homes, and rented them out, showing convidence in a Fort Lauderdale Real Estate turnaround. The goal now is for a Related Group subsidiary to add a 256 luxury rental building called the New River Yacht Club to the south side of the Fort Lauderdale Real Estate market at a site just west of Andrews Avenue.

Some buyers of Fort Lauderdale Condos are surprised to hear that there is very little inventory available in the Ft Lauderdale Market. Lack of new construction and high demand for rental units have kept the beach and downtown areas of Ft Lauderdale Condo market a prime target for investors. Low inventory and stablizing prices in Ft Lauderdale Real Estate often appear to be the story that the media forgot to report. Recently we spoke to a buyer who told us that “the Fountains and Sapphire on the beach had both closed their sales offices because nobody was buying”. She was right, both sales offices are now closed, but she was wrong about why, the last two buildings in the Fort Lauderdale Central Beach area are sold out.

It is great to see projects in the planning stage again, it is great to see some in fill projects that have been stalled starting to be worked on again, and it is very clear that lower inventory, stabilized prices and strong demand will allow the Fort Lauderdale Real Estate market to work through any inventory that the banks continue to work through their “system”.
