Fort Lauderdale Homes & Condos For Sale and For Rent

Fort Lauderdale is a beautiful coastal city located in Broward County, Florida and it is the second-largest principal city of the Miami Metropolitan Area.  The City is located north of Dania Beach and the City of Hollywood, and south of Lauderdale by the Sea and Pompano Beach.

Founded in 1838 and incorporated in 1911, the City of Fort Lauderdale takes its name from a number of forts that once existed in the area that was named after a commanding officer, Major William Lauderdale, who served in the area during the 2nd Seminole War.  It was not until fifty years after the last of these forts were abandoned at the end of the Seminole War that construction of the city we know today began.

Today, Fort Lauderdale is known as the "Venice of America", the city is a boater's paradise.  Fort Lauderdale is  home and, in some cases, headquarters to many of the major yacht builders and marine-servicing companies.  The City of Fort Lauderdale also features over 100 marinas and over 50,000 registered yachts, and the city features over 160 miles of inland & Intracoastal Waterways & canals!  In addition to being the Yachting Capital of the World, Fort Lauderdale's port, Port Everglades, is the third-largest cruise port in the world.

Fort Lauderdale real estate is a popular choice for both buyers and renters due to its close proximity to the beaches, waterways, and attractions of South Florida. The city has a diverse range of housing options, from luxurious waterfront mansions to more affordable apartments and townhomes.

The demand for Fort Lauderdale real estate has been steadily increasing in recent years, leading to a tight housing market with low vacancy rates. As a result, prices for both buying and renting have been on the rise.
