As we enjoy another beautiful Florida day we are reminded why rightfully, Fort Lauderdale Florida, lives up to its nickname as “Yachting Capital of the World” by hosting the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show annually. The show features billions of dollars worth of super yachts, mega-yachts, boats, yachts, electronics, engines and thousands of marine accessories from major marine manufacturers, distributors and builders from around the world. The boat show takes in a total of more than 3 million square feet of show space, both on land and in the water, at multiple sites which are all connected by the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show Transportation Network.
Fort Lauderdale draws in millions of dollars of revenue each year from the yachting industry. The marine industry in Fort Lauderdale creates jobs, brings a world-renowned annual boat show each fall, increases tourism dollars and not to mention boosts demand for waterfront real estate – keeping up property value.
Live where you vacation…ever thought you’d like to stay on vacation forever, it’s possible if you consider purchasing property in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This is the place for your year round home or vacation home. Properties come in every category and price range. On the ocean, beachfront or other waterfront property.
Although it will still take some time to rebuild consumer confidence, as mentioned by Ron Shuffield, President of EWM Realtors in a recent Market Update , many people paying cash for their homes today are finding deals at reduced prices. Sellers are anxious to make a decision to leave their properties so for buyers with cash or those with the ability to borrow money is a great time for them to buy.
