Town of Golden Beach To Undergo Facelift

Golden Beach’s $14.5 Million Dollar Capital Improvement Project

Beginning the month of October Golden Beach will begin construction on their vision for beautifully landscaped, pedestrian friendly streets.  Safety and security.  The project is expected to last nearly 3 years and includes improving Ocean Boulevard with new five-foot sidewalks with concrete pavers and crosswalks, new landscape and lighting as well as 24-hour monitored infrared security system.  The project also calls for installation of new drainage systems and replacement of unsightly overhead utility lines with an underground system providing for a more attractive appearance.  The carefully planned project will be completed half-block at a time.  Improvements to the street include a new sidewalk, expanded driving lanes and new landscaping.  Although there will be some inconveniences the residents of Golden Beach believe it will be well worth it.

I am sure in 3 years Golden Beach will look like a new town and the more polished appearance will only increase Golden Beach’s Property values.

Hallandale Beach Florida is changing fast and is yet another reason why I think the cities of Hallandale, Aventura, Golden Beach and Hollywood Florida along with sub-communities of Harbor Islands, Hollywood Lakes, Golden Isles, Presidential Estates, Aventura Lakes and Porto-Vita will be some of the key areas for growth and appreciation since they benefit from being “in the center of both market’s of Miami and Fort Lauderdale”.

Housing Market Outlook By Homeservices Of America, Inc. a Berkshire Hathaway Affiliate

“Housing Is A Primary Goal for Americans”

Ron Peltier, President and CEO of the Holding Company, Homeservices of America Inc. speaks about the Nations housing and Lending situation. Homeservices of America, Inc. is a Berkshire Hathaway Affiliate which owns South Florida’s EWM, and the second-largest full service independent residential real estate brokerage firm in the country.

I think it is very important to listen to every indicator you can today and especially with successful people like Ron Peltier & Warren Buffet. Warren Buffet stated just a few weeks ago that until the US Housing Market stabilizes the world economy with continue to suffer. Berkshire Hathaway is one of the largest shareholders of Wells Fargo which is one of the few financial institutions that has been doing well and one of the few lending today.
