Vantage View Fort Lauderdale Beach Market Update

As we head into August and settle into later summer here is a recap of sales activity for the Vantage View condominium tower. There is currently only one active listing in Vantage View and it is priced at $295,000 and is a two bedroom, two bathroom unit on the 4th floor. If you have been on the fence about possibly listing and selling your condo in Vantage View this may be an excellent time as there is only the one unit to compete with.  With shoppers looking for Fort Lauderdale waterfront condos the Vantage View is a popular choice and represent an excellent value at its price range. An easy reminder that come late fall and into winter you most likely will see an increase of listings which will actually make it harder to sell. The Vantage View was built in 1975 and has a unique design as it allows superior views with windows from the ground up. One other great feature of Vantage View (and with crediting to its name) is the spectacular roof top swimming pool with views of the ocean and downtown Fort Lauderdale.
