Cost of Living in a South Florida Condo Rising Quick

Insurance Crisis in South Florida Condos

Over the last few months, we have watched as South Florida Condos received their insurance quotes for the coming year. In addition to many condos receiving massive increases, some older condos such as many Palm Aire Condo buildings were not being offered the same coverage, they had received prior. It is no secret that South Florida Single family homeowners have been seeing massive increases as homes were sold and new homeowners went to get insurance, but the numbers that faced condo buildings were just so much more alarming. Many buildings that had deferred maintenance and updates simply are now being forced to pay up.

Looking Back is Not a Strategy

The monthly cost of owning a condo is rising for three obvious reasons. The cost of insurance has gone through the roof. Inflation has hit the cost of everything that buildings need to operate. Florida has passed a law requiring condos to have their reserves in place by the end of next year. These three things explain the entire story effecting South Florida Condos today. Unfortunately, some property managers have seen as part of the explanation a need to point fingers at prior boards and management companies. Simply this is not a win under any circumstance. When given a chance to vote on funding reserves over the years, many condo owners have simply voted to kick the can down the road. The State of Florida after a horrible accident has placed stringent requirements on reserve accounts. Though not the subject of this article, giving buildings one year to make up for possibly 50 years of under funding is a bit ridiculous and may need to be addressed.

Not all Fort Lauderdale Condo Buildings are Being Hit the Same

Throughout South Florida there are buildings that have been beautifully maintained and though not immune to rising costs, they are not facing the same issue. Recently in Palm Aire, one of the largest condo communities in Broward County in Pompano Beach Florida many parts of the community are facing the three-prong crisis, but some parts of Palm Aire are not. Some condos have funded reserves and stayed on top of maintenance throughout the years. I currently am renovating a Palm Aire Three Bedroom King in Condo 12 – Cypress Grove of Palm Aire Country Club and am selling the Two Bedroom Palm Aire I currently live in at the same building. With a new roof on the building and funded reserves the monthly increase for 2024 was less the five dollars. In Condo 12 of Palm Aire the Board of Directors and Campbell Management certainly deserve credit for making this happen. If you are in the market for a Palm Aire Condominium or any condo in the South Florida market now is simply the time to work with a Realtor who understands the condo market. Buyers need to know exactly what questions to ask so that they are fully aware of where their condo’s budget stands, the history of assessments, the goal is to prevent their South Florida Dream Condo from turning into a nightmare.

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.

Fort Lauderdale Realtors will guide the conversation with a simple question, “What is most important for you to be close to in your daily life”? Over the years at the Eric Miller Group we have heard answers that you expect like Fort Lauderdale Beach, or the grocery store. But we have also heard much more specific answers like a Publix’s Supermarket, a local bar, a health club, or a local dog park. People love to be able to be close to the things in life that are important to them. Over the years we have sold many Ft Lauderdale Condos at a condominium in Fort Lauderdale called the Tides at Bridgeside Square.

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!
