2021 Outlook

Fort Lauderdale’s housing market experienced significant increases across the board.  This is largely due to buyer and seller motivation to accomplish what they couldn’t during the pandemic, and this is also due to the market coming to a halt last year with the stay-at-home mandates.  This year of catch up will likely make this one of the biggest years for the number of homes sold.
