Southwest Ranches of South Florida

When South Florida home buyers start their conversation about what is on their wish list for a home in South Florida with the mention of “at least a half-acre” and “space between neighbors” many realtors will immediately think of the town of Southwest Ranches. A unique enclave within fast-growing Broward County.

History of Southwest Ranches

Southwest Ranches is a town in Broward County.  Southwest Ranches is a suburban oasis located just east of the Everglades. Downtown Fort Lauderdale is just 15 miles away and its approximately 25 miles to Miami. It became the county’s 30th incorporated town in 2000 to avoid annexation into Pembroke Pines and to preserve its semirural lifestyle. Because the area has many horse ranches and is located in the southwestern part of Broward County, residents chose “Southwest Ranches” as the name of this unique community.

The population at the Southwest Ranches is just under 8000 people according to the most recent census. The community in support of its rural-equestrian lifestyle, has developed many equestrian trails. In addition, the city has minimum lot size requirements the assure the feel of Southwest Ranches will remain an oasis in an area surrounded by development.  Ready to learn about Southwest Ranches check out the Town Newsletter the Southwest Rancher

Award Winning Broker Joins eXp Realty in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Award Winning Broker Joins 73,000 Agents Worldwide at eXp Realty LLC

 

Eric Miller a broker associate with eXp Realty Fort Lauderdale, Member of the Realtor Association of Greater Fort Lauderdale, and Member of the Master Brokers of Broward County made a move to a different real-estate company, eXp Realty, after over a decade at the same company. In a business where many realtors move from company to company, realtors such as Eric Miller have stayed with companies for many years throughout their careers. The move to eXp Realty Ft Lauderdale was sort of a big deal.  As the former President of Dr. Denton, the Children’s Pajama Company, Miller joined Arvida Realty in 2000 launching a career change over 20 years ago. His first branding change came when Arvida was sold to Coldwell Banker, and the most recent change came at end to 2020 when he joined eXp Realty LLC. For customers used to using his numerous web sites nothing changed at FortLauderdaleGroup.com or FTLRealEstate.com other than the eXp Realty Fort Lauderdale branding.eXp Realty

Who is eXp Realty LLC?

eXp Realty LLC was founded in 2009 and contrary to many stories was one of the fastest growing real estate companies in the world prior to the Covid pandemic. The virtual reality office and worldwide communication network of exp Realty was a natural for realtors long before the stay-at-home orders that brought the company even faster growth. Exp Realty, under the umbrella of eXp World Holdings became a public company in 2013 and trades under the symbol of EXPI. In addition to 73,000 agents under exp Realty LLC, the company consists of eXp Global, eXp Commercial, Virbela, Showcase IDX, and Success. In 2006 a Sun Sentinel article quoted the owner of a local real estate company as saying “Eric works harder than most Realtors I’ve seen in my career. His commitment to his clients and the industry are why Eric is so successful. He stops at nothing to satisfy his clients real estate needs and I’m proud to have him on our team”. Today this is exactly the way Eric feels about his home at eXp Realty in Ft Lauderdale and how eXp Realty LLC works with their agents, and clients, and is proud to be part of the team at eXp Realty Fort Lauderdale.

Thinking about a career in Real Estate Anywhere

Eric Miller is licensed in both Florida and North Carolina. When Eric Miller was at his former company, he stepped up to teach many real estate classes from contracts to new construction and is sincerely proud of the fact that many of his classes were the most well attended events in the office. At eXp Realty LLC Eric completed training as an eXP Realty Mentor and currently is working with numerous agents personally as their mentor. The mentor program at eXp Realty is unique and is something that I am proud to be a part of. Eric is quick to admit that when he made his career change two decades ago, he had many misconceptions about what a career in real estate looked like. Today he is always willing to take a call from someone thinking about a career in real estate, a new agent, or someone thinking of making a move to a new company. I wont look back and say I wish had joined eXp Realty sooner, but I will say, “I am happy to be with eXp Realty LLC and proud to be there today”.

Local Fort Lauderdale Realtor Discusses Why Florida Real Estate Listings Should Not Quote Taxes?

Fort Lauderdale Realtor Explains Real Estate Taxes

 

As a Fort Lauderdale Realtor, I often hear clients say things like “but look at the difference in taxes on these two homes”, or the “the taxes on this unit are lower than the one downstairs”, or “that’s odd the taxes on this unit with a better view are 50% lower”. Each time the answer is the same, and as a #FortLauderdaleRealtor for over 20 years it is part of mission of excellent Fort Lauderdale Real Estate service to help buyers of  #FortLauderdaleReal Estate understand how real estate taxes work in South Florida.

In Florida we pay our real estate taxes in arrears. This means we pay our #FloridaReal Estate taxes at the end of the year for the year that just past. If you purchase and close of a property prior to the tax being due the buyer will receive a credit from the seller for the portion of the taxes that occurred while the seller owned the property. The buyer will get the entire tax bill at the end of the year. Eric Miller of eXp Realty LLC in Fort Lauderdale makes your search for Ft Lauderdale Real Estate easy with access to all Fort Lauderdale Area Real Estate Listings and their availability to answer questions.

Ft. Lauderdale Real Estate Tax Assessments

The most important sentence in this post, Florida law calls for every property which is sold to be reassessed at full market value in the year following the sale. There are some adjustments for closings costs but….to be as close as possible and have no surprises use your purchase price and the tax rate you receive from your local Florida Real Estate broker or from the county in which you are purchasing South Florida Real Estate. When purchasing real estate in Fort Lauderdale which is Broward County you can count on 2% as a fairly accurate number or you can visit the county tax estimator at https://bcpa.net/TaxCalc.asp

As a reminder, every property will be reassessed so please ignore the current number indicating in the Fort Lauderdale MLS it is not an indication of your future taxes.

Homestead and Your Ft Lauderdale Real Estate

Two more subjects related to local real estate taxes in Fort Lauderdale. In you do not have a homesteaded property anywhere else in the country you may be eligible to homestead your South Florida home. This will provide you two benefits a) a $50,000 reduction on the valuation creating about a $1000 savings (exclusive of school tax) so reality a bit less is reality and b) a 3% cap on any assessment increase. The 3% cap is a huge deal.

Subject #2 – If you are unable to homestead your Fort Lauderdale area property, there will be a 10% assessment cap on the valuation of your property. This law went to effect in 2009. The 10% cap applies to all taxing authority millage rates except local school boards. Having this cap in place is a benefit to anyone who purchases in market with rising prices.

In a future post we will discuss Portability, and how it helps Fort Lauderdale Real Estate owners when they move to another property. Any additional questions about real estate taxes as you prepare to purchase a Home or Condo for sale in the Fort Lauderdale area feel free to call Eric Miller, Your Fort Lauderdale Realtor at eXp Realty LLC, 50,000 Realtors strong worldwide.

Ft Lauderdale Condos for Sale – Close to everything Ft Lauderdale

No car needed Fort Lauderdale Condo

Fort Lauderdale Condo buyers often start off with the number one thing on their wish list is the walkability index, a term you often see used on sites like Zillow, Trulia and Redfin. This “walk ability index” can mean so many things and as Fort Lauderdale Realtors we try immediately to lead the conversation down the road of what does this mean to you. In some cities, walkability is an easy thing to describe. As a former New Yorker (over 20 years ago) even though I owned a car I often marked on my calendar to go down and start it, it was easier to walk, and clearly this was a high walkability index as I was able to walk to almost everything. Fort Lauderdale Condo buyers must be more selective if “walkability” is important and Ft Lauderdale Realtors very ready to have this discussion.
