Fort Lauderdale Real Estate News – Fort Lauderdale Realtor

I can remember back in 2007 and 2008 as the new construction projects permitted and ready to be built were being cancelled. I can remember saying to other REALTORS® within the Henri Frank Group and within the Real Estate business that by the time things begin to turn around, our buyers will want new construction and won’t be available. That has quickly become true and many builders are working to get projects approved, financed and built. The demand amongst our buyers of townhomes, condominiums and single family homes are asking for brand new properties.
