Boats, Docks & Location
Fort Lauderdale Canal Front Homes can have drastic differences in price. Main reasons of large price discrepancies is the type of bridges between the home and the ocean. A fixed bridge can drastically affect the price. The location is also a contributing factor. The cost of the location is determined by the distance from the Ocean. Fort Lauderdale Canal Front Homes that are not impeded by fixed bridges will command a higher price than those that have fixed bridges. So the locations value is highly determined by the ability to get a boat or large boat to the ocean. If Fort Lauderdale decided to build a fixed bridge instead of a drawbridge as access to a particular neighborhood than the value would certainly be effected. Although most fixed bridges do allow some boat traffic with height restrictions. When considering to purchase a home with a fixed bridge, make sure you find out the clearance height if you intend to have a boat. The information is listed on our Fort Lauderdale fixed bridges page. Fort Lauderdale Canal Front Homes located a little west that still has ocean access, but a fixed bridges can start as low as $300,000. On the other side of the coin, you you can have a home located on a Canal and the Intracoastal with no fixed bridges. Fixed bridges and Ocean distance are two main factors. The location proximity to downtown Fort Lauderdale also plays a role in price. Canal front homes in Rio Vista, Las Olas Isles and Harbor Beach are, in general more expensive than other areas.
