Julie Jones-Bernard has sold eight direct ocean front private residences since 2010. Four of them closed in May and June which depicts an interesting buying trend.
Julie believes that the underlying reason is that savvy buyers want to purchase their dream residence on the ocean in preparation for the winter months. As temperatures drop elsewhere, it is the perfect time to enjoy the sunshine of South Florida amazing vistas and breezes from the Atlantic Ocean. Family and friends could not possibly resist the beautiful South Florida beaches!
Another reason is that South Florida has been more seasonal in the past. Typically the main selling season runs from October through to April. Even though Fort Lauderdale is becoming increasingly much less seasonal one can still notice a change in traffic patterns and a shorter or no wait lines at the better restaurants! Julie encourages the buyers that she works with to look and negotiate hard during the summer months. Sometimes a seller may be disappointed not to have sold during the main season and be ready to move on with their real estate plans. After all one will not catch a fish without a rod in the ocean! Plus low interest rates which significantly contribute to a great environment for buyers may not continue indefinitely.
Concerned about maintaining a residence on the ocean or security as a part time resident? The perfect compromise are the Villas at The Palms. With all the privacy and amenities of a single family residence, these beautiful Villas provide the perfect solution in a Five Star Resort style environment.
At the other end of the spectrum, are 1802 Bay Drive is a spectacular newly built oceanfront residence offered at $8.95M and 2930 North Atlantic Boulevard a newly finished contemporary residence listed at $7.995M.
