My Summary

We currently have a great selection Fort Lauderdale condos for sale across all categories- from waterfront, oceanfront condos, Galt Ocean Mile condos and Luxury condos

It is important to note that median prices for Fort Lauderdale condos sold over our last 2 posts has softened!

This in my mind this softening of prices is a reflection of factors including rising interest rates and “seasonality”.

Important to note however is that median sales prices for Waterfront and Luxury condos have remained the same while both Oceanfront condos and Galt Ocean Mile condos have risen!

This is a very positive sign given rising interest rates and also given we are now well out of “season”
