In addition to the Market Reports that I blog for Fort Lauderdale Real Estate, I have decided to dig deeper into the numbers and provide detailed market reports and trends for specific neighborhoods. As real estate is local, there can be vast differences from one neighborhood versus another as well as significant differences from the larger more general area. Whether you are buying or selling, understanding market trends will benefit you greatly. I will attempt to provide these on a quarterly basis. The first of these quarterly reports is Lauderdale By the Sea area.
