Moving to South Florida in 2022: How does Fort Lauderdale Compare to Miami?

Fort Lauderdale vs Miami: Real Estate and Lifestyle Options

During the pandemic we created a video comparing Miami real estate to Fort Lauderdale real estate. Today (Q3 2021), the markets have shifted and are more similar in many ways than ever before.  As the original video was one of our most watched videos we decided to create a new one comparing the markets as they are today. The goal of this video is to help those who are considering to move to South Florida with answering the question: Which city would work best for me: Fort Lauderdale or Miami?

Fort Lauderdale Real Estate Expert Elaine Tatum and Miami Real Estate Expert David Siddons compare the two markets on several aspects that are important to buyers

The Added Value of the David Siddons Group in the South Florida Real Estate Market

If you are a buyer who is looking to make a move down to South Florida, you need a team that is equipped with knowledge that extends beyond just Fort Lauderdale or Miami. You need a team that can show you the different Miami neighborhoods and its numbers with the same ease and experience as showing you neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale or Boca Raton. Our expertise goes beyond the scope of a “neighborhood” realtor. We know the numbers, the top local agents and have broader optics to the whole of South Florida. There aren’t many teams that have access to both markets with the knowledge we have. We offer this service to our buyers as we are able to truly compare one area to another and show the various market stats.

We have territory managers so if you haven’t found what you need in Coral Gables or Miami Beach then we will show you options in Ft Lauderdale or other South Florida areas best suited to your specific needs. We are familiar with the broader real estate landscape in South Florida and can help find the best home for you.

We have only superlatives to describe how wonderful Cris Buzolin was throughout the process of selling our townhouse in Coral Gables. We were away in the UK while the transaction was taking place and Cris handled everything-from clearing out our house, selling contents when she could, arranging the moving and storage and dealing with some very difficult problems which arose. Always patient and very willing to help in every way, Cris is a consummate professional who really cares about her clients and worked extremely hard to get the price we had asked for and make things for us as easy as she could. Nothing was too much for her to handle.Cris and Marianela (who provided additional very helpful assistance to us during the transaction) are part of the team that David Siddons has assembled.When we decided to sell our property, we contacted David and he established the framework for the transaction and ensured that everything proceeded smoothly and in accordance with our wishes. In sum, David Siddons and his team are extremely competent and professional and we are totally satisfied with the service they provided. To repeat, Cris Buzolin in particular, went way beyond what one would expect from a real estate agent. The David Siddons Group has our highest recommendation!

Fantastic group of people to work with!! David and Adriana were responsive and professional throughout the entire process. We weren't familiar with South Florida so David took us under his wing and did a fabulous job giving us a tour of select neighborhoods in South Florida and shared a great deal of information about each. We fell in love with the Botaniko community in Weston and closed the deal with Adriana. If you are buying/selling this is the team you want to work with!! Thank you guys for helping us find our dream home.
