City Guide
Fort Lauderdale
It’s called “the water,” not “the ocean”.

As with any urban center situated near the water, the numero uno rule in real estate is that the closer you get to it, the higher your rent will be. The second rule is that if you want to live in a city where lots of other people want to live, you’re going to have to pay for it. If, knowing these things, you’re still set on finding your little slice of beachy paradise in Ft. Lauderdale, it can definitely be done.


Las Olas Boulevard transverses the city’s eastern canal system, running from the water west into downtown and is home to the city’s nightlife. Upscale shopping, four-star restaurants and clubs line this boulevard. You can also rent a luxury two-bedroom condo in the downtown end of Las Olas Boulevard starting at around $1500. The commercial and financial center of Fort Lauderdale plays host to a growing multitude of high-rise condominium developments. For urban dwellers who want to stay connected to the city’s nightlife, downtown might just be your place. Few houses are available here, but proximity to amenities – such as the beach, which is only 10 minutes away – makes up for what you lack in space to stretch. Nearby Victoria Park is considered a good compromise between downtown and Las Olas locations.

Areas like Plantation, Davie, Weston, and Coral Springs puts you about 15 minutes from the action. Areas here are more suburban. They come filled with Starbucks and strip malls, but you can get one bedroom apartments for around $1000/month or single family homes starting at around $2000. Roomshares in three and four bed homes are also more of an option here and, if you’re willing to embrace that kind of living arrangement or are moving to town with friends, you can get your rent down to around $500 a month. This is by far the best option, so I’m suggesting (telling) you bring (drag) your friends.

In Wilton Manors and Oakland Park, the same money will get you quite a bit more space. Here, $1000 will get you a small studio in a nice building, a two bedroom townhouse will ring in around $1400, and a three bedroom home at around $2300.

Think tranquil traffic thoughts.

Cars are by far the top choice. Be sure to see if a parking spot is included in your rent. Broward County Transit also provides a moderately-priced bus system, and Sun Trolley operates four or five routes in Fort Lauderdale proper that will mostly shuttle you up and down Las Olas Boulevard and from hotels to the beach and back.

Happy Hunting!

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.


Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
