Have you decided it's time to make your move to a location that promises year-round gorgeous weather and complements your active lifestyle? Maybe it is time to live in an area that maximizes your enjoyment of life with beautiful scenery and a flourishing community.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, home buyers are prioritizing health, wellness, family, home and lifestyle in choosing where they want to live. They want space, fresh air and outdoor activities. With a variety of housing options, South Florida, Fort Lauderdale and the neighborhoods near Las Olas provide all of that.
If you have visited Fort Lauderdale, there is a good chance you are reading this after having discovered the beautiful Las Olas Isles and the shops and fine restaurants of Las Olas Boulevard. Can you imagine yourself spending more time here? Wide sandy beaches, warm ocean water, gorgeous yachts, boutique shops, fun restaurants, and activities for the entire family now coexist in a place that used to be mostly for vacationers. Las Olas is a place people want to call home.
In South Florida, there often are inventory shortages when it comes to available homes ready for purchasing. In such times, when a specific geographic region becomes more popular, its total number of available houses will be limited. When you begin searching for Las Olas real estate, you may find it difficult to pinpoint a property that matches your exact wish list.
Finding and negotiating to purchase your perfect Fort Lauderdale home may require some intricate maneuvering. With the help and hyper-local expertise of a Tim Singer Team Member, you will soon be settling into your new home.
Luxury living has become popular in this idyllic city
Homes for sale in Las Olas and nearby neighborhoods offer you a place to live that has almost everything needed for a dynamic way of life. A recent building boom has created a very attractive housing stock of high-quality design and finishes built to stringent construction codes. The result is a mix of sophisticated new and updated homes. These homes are created to maximize space, light and livability. Most have open living areas that blend easily with the outdoors.
Are you a boater? Fort Lauderdale is laced with over 180 miles of scenic ocean access waterways. This makes it possible for you to live in a home where your boat, yacht, paddleboard, kayak or wave runner can be as close as your backyard. Tim Singer and his team will help you find the best property for your watercraft.
New construction happens slowly
Buyers want what they want — now — and sellers are waiting
As happens every few years, the real estate market is experiencing a notable change. Interest rates have increased significantly in the first half of 2022. The headlines scream that the real estate market is crashing and some run for cover. Experienced real estate and banking professionals see this as a normal and needed correction. Interest rates are returning to pre-pandemic levels. The advantages that seemed to belong only to sellers over the past year appear to be turning back toward a more equitable balance between buyers and sellers. Many potential buyers have decided to wait out the market. Others see this as an opportunity to negotiate a better price on their purchase with sellers who are reading the same headlines.
Tim Singer and his team understand the local market and will help you navigate the challenges of being a new buyer in an unfamiliar market. While cash offers usually have the advantage, a well-presented financed offer can carry just as much weight. Tim Singer and his team have a list of very qualified loan officers who can help you prepare for your offer and then provide financing at competitive rates and terms.
Having all of your documentation and contingencies in order will help you make your personal best offer. If your ducks are in a row, you can worry less and be confident you have not missed anything. In order to reach such a state of poise, your agent will help pilot you through your buying process and mitigate the risks of losing deals. With an expert on your side, you can hope for the best and at the same time be prepared for all possible contingencies of the home- or condo-buying process.
The typical seller expects to field multiple offers on their home, and sometimes, the number of offers reaches double digits. If you're selling property, be prepared to spend time reviewing the details of all incoming offers, which may differ in crucial respects. Ask your agent and/or attorney to counsel you through your offers because even the smallest-seeming contingencies can impact your net proceeds. Take your time and be certain you walk away from the table with the most profit.
