Moving to South Florida in 2023: 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?

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.
