Here is my first of many more community video blog posts to come. As I had mentioned in a previous post, the City of Hallandale has begun the improvements to the bridges in the waterfront Golden Isles community and the project is set to be completed November of this year. The current concrete and metal barriers are being replaced with decorative barriers and lighting. There are 307 homes in Golden Isles and the residents are committed to enhancing and improving the community as they have recently also completed a new guard house, curbs and landscape projects.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrRXpFaMzPs]
Where Did The Buyers Come From??
U.S. (New Jersey)
Golden Isles Year In Review
Golden Isles is a gated waterfront single family home community with approximately 307 homes. In 2008 there were a total of 10 sales in Golden Isles. The lowest sales price was $500,000 and the highest sales price was $1,649,000. I am very active in this community and sold 50% or 5 of the sales in this community in 2008 including the 2 sales mentioned above. Clients often ask me “Where will the buyer for my house come from”? and although I don’t have a crystal ball, I do know where 50% of the buyers for this Golden Isles Waterfront community came from and even though this community is a small part of South Florida it is still a good representation of how international South Florida truly is.
Active Listings: 31
Highest Priced Listing: $4,999,000
Lowest Priced Listing: $769,900
Golden Isles in Hallandale Florida is a gated deep waterfront single family home community with ocean access and no fixed bridges. There are approximately 304 properties within the gates of this Broward County community with 99% of the properties on the water and only 5 homes on dry lots. A few great notable points of Golden Isles are: it’s a protected waterfront community (protection for your vessel during storms and high winds), all of the canals are wide and deep enough for about any vessel that can be moored on any of its lots, ocean access is just 15 minutes away to the south at The Haulover Inlet and 45 minutes to Port Everglades Inlet to the north.
Golden Isles is right on the Broward/Miami-Dade County line and right across from Golden Beach Florida. As home prices in Golden Beach soar, Golden Isles has become more attractive although it might not be as exclusive or have the name recognition of Golden Beach.
As a boat owner, one of the advantages of Golden Isles is that like I said it’s on deep water allowing for larger boats unlike Golden Beach which has numerous of its waterfront properties sitting on very shallow water and does not allow for boats that draw as little as 4 feet.
In my opinion, Golden Isles is one of South Florida’s premier deep waterfront communities whether you just want to live on the water, are a boat owner or both. Golden Isles is minutes from Aventura, Bal Harbour and the Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale International Airport, right in the center of both Market’s of Miami-Dade & Fort Lauderdale.
