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!

Apartment List Rent Report data is drawn monthly from the millions of listings on our site. 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom rents are calculated as the median for units available in the specified size and time period. Price changes are calculated using a “same unit” methodology similar to the Case-Shiller “repeat sales” home prices methodology, taking the average price change for units available across both time periods.
