South Florida Real Estate | Eco-Friendly: Understanding ‘Go Green’ Real Estate

 

 

Fort Lauderdale Real Estate / Fort Lauderdale REALTORS® / New Construction in Ft Lauderdale

 

 http://www.HenriFrank.com

 

There are many discussions about Eco-Friendly commercial real estate and now even more talk within the residential real estate of homes, townhomes, condominiums and villas. As REALTORS® selling real estate in Fort Lauderdale, Miami Beach, Boca Raton and all areas in between, The Henri Frank Group at REMAX Preferred is learning more, keeping educated with this latest Eco-Friendly movement in building new construction real estate.

 

What does it all mean to you as a consumer? Let me help you sort it out. Hard to get all of this information into one article, I’ve decided to do a 4-part series of Eco-Friendly preconstruction and I will begin with the community in Oakland Park-Fort Lauderdale-Wilton Manors area, 43 Urban Village, being built by Robert Saporiti of IDI Properties since he has planned this project with the “Go-Green” concept.

 

There are literally dozens aspects to building residential properties. The commonly known are the roof, the electrical, plumbing, windows and the list continues. I can remember the buzz word 15-20 years ago related to Echo-Friendly was Energy-Efficient. The products manufactured for the home, like appliances, hot water heaters, air conditioning systems, heating systems and windows were being marketed with an energy-efficiency rating.

 

However, now as we enter into the 21st century, energy-efficiency is still a priority and is the basis of building construction and apart of the construction process, but it has escalated to a deeper vision of saving our natural resources, saving money and to a much broader concept, changing to Eco-Friendly lifestyles.

 

The State of Florida, USA has challenges more than other regions of the country. Especially here in South Florida we are confronted with 200mph windstorms, hurricanes with wind and flooding combinations and deep hot weather in the summer. I think it is the trade-off for a year round tropical lifestyle that money can’t buy anywhere else in the United States. So to enjoy this lifestyle, to embrace this region, years of experiments and research have led us to Eco-Friendly, Energy-Efficient choices in our South Florida homes.

 

43Urban Village in Oakland Park Wilton Manors Fort Lauderdale is Eco-Friendly

 

 

 

 

 

As Realtors in Fort Lauderdale, and Realtors selling real estate throughout South Florida, we have knowledge of this concept to pass along to our clients. It is our responsibility as a buyers representative that at the very least, have a clear understanding of the bones of a home, like the windows, the roof, the air conditioning system and more.

 

Let’s take a close look at the Eco Friendly aspects of the newest project that the REALTORS® of the Henri Frank Group, Henri Vezie and Frank Vigliotti are representing the developer in selling, Live+Work Townhomes of the 43Urban Village in Broward County Florida.  

 

Quickly becoming very popular is the Live + Work lifestyle. By purchasing a Live+Work home, as an individual owning real estate, you can make your investment even more important towards the sustainability of the earth’s environment. You can make a contribution to the community you live and this lifestyle, I believe is one of the biggest contributions.

Taken from the website for the 43Urban Village project are the highlights of the Eco-Friendly aspects:

 

  • v  It enables a “zero-commute” lifestyle. Auto travel contributes a large portion of the greenhouse gas emissions. The shorter the commute to work, the less fuel you burn.
  • v  Creating pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods reduces the reliance on automobiles. Being close to your customers, clients and employees cuts down on auto travel.
  • v  Using recycled land in urban areas saves open space and provides an intelligent alternative to suburban sprawl.
  • v  Combining living and working spaces makes the best use of scarce resources (one property not two).
  • v  Major reductions in waste of electricity, gas, and water.
  • v  Compact building design means more energy efficiency. Units stay cooler in the summer and warmer in our colder months.
  • v  Close proximity to shopping and services.
  • v  Bus lines just outside your door.

 

Energy efficient homes reduce energy costs and save you money.  The vision of Robert Saporiti of IDI Developers for this exciting project works to meet or exceed the requirements for ENERGY STAR Homes by incorporating the following:

 

v  ENERGY STAR appliances

v  Programmable thermostats

v  Extra Insulation

v  Compact fluorescent light bulbs

v  Day lighting

v  High efficiency mechanical equipment (14.5 SEER)

v  Solar Ban 60 Low-E Glass

 

 

 Conserving water saves money, conserving water is an effort to preserving our natural resources and meet the ongoing demand for this basic human need and the 43Urban Village design includes:

 

v  Low flow faucets

v  Low volume flush toilets

v  Drought tolerant plants and native shade tree species

v  Pervious surfaces

v  Rain sensor for sprinkler system

 

 

Choosing the right materials and building practices is also environmentally friendly and promotes health and indoor air quality:

v  Recycling of demolition and construction materials

v  Rapidly renewable materials such as bamboo flooring

v  Long lasting and well insulated durable exteriors

v  All natural material wood cabinetry

New Construction Single Family Homes, Condominiums and Townhomes in South Florida

 

Do potential homebuyers favor purchasing new homes over older properties? BHI Inc.conducted a study which analyzed consumers’ first choice regarding shopping for newly constructed properties over older homes. This study examined 984 potential home buyers who have intentions of investing in a home within 2013.

 

The survey uncovered that potential home buyers favor older homes instead of newly constructed homes but will still contemplate the idea of purchasing a new home for sale by a builder. 75% of potential home buyers surveyed indicated that they are considering making offers on an existing property and 20% of buyers prefer to buy a brand new home. 5% of prospective buyers surveyed indicated that they had no opinion on the subject and didn’t mind if the home was newly built or not.

 

For the potential buyers surveyed who indicated that they would rather buy an existing property over a newly built home, some of the crucial aspect of the property are lot sizes, coterie, and well-kept landscaping that many of these properties often offer. Many believe that settled communities are more inviting, offer better home design, and more security.

 

The Henri Frank Group at RE/MAX Preferred has different information from its buyers in the South Florida real estate market, including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors, Boca Raton and Hillsboro Shores in Broward County. More than half of our buyers would like to purchase brand new constructed homes, but the inventory falls short. There are single family home projects for sale by Lennar Homes, Minto Homes, Centerline Homes and others. There are even more new construction projects of high rise buildings of condominiums. Many of the buyers of the Henri Frank Group want to purchase single family homes.

 

The latest Fort Lauderdale project east of I95, The Georgians by Centerline are SOLD OUT. There are townhomes west of I95 by Lennar Homes, Oakland Park Isles has availabilities, however the location is not nearly as favorable for most buyers, as they want east of I95. The demand for new construction single family homes is east of I95. This is key to the study conducted by BHI Inc. I believe the demand for new construction, the attitudes to buy new construction is regional within the USA. Broward County of South Florida where the we sell more than 50% of our total yearly sales, east of I95, those buyers prefer new construction versus older homes.

 

Another main reason for the new homes is our insurance requirements here in South Florida. Lenders allowing homeowners to borrow and obtain a mortgage will pass along a discount to newly constructed homes or those homes that are upgraded with windows and doors, newer roofs, newer electric and plumbing. Another reason for the homebuyers in our region of the USA to want new contruction.

 

Potential homebuyers who shared that they prefer newly built homes were generally interested in issues such as energy efficiency, lower management costs, and adaptability. Many prospective buyers indicated that they prefer newly constructed homes as they tend to provide more living space even if you have to sacrifice lot or yard size.

 

New Construction Single Family Homes

From the BHI, Inc. website, “Baker Hughes Incorporated is headquartered in Austin, Texas, Builder Homesite, Inc. (BHI) was founded with the mission to bring homebuilding industry leaders together to develop world class technology solutions. BHI was formed in 2000 as a consortium of 32 of the nation’s largest homebuilders. Our flagship product is NewHomeSource.com, a consumer website featuring the Internet’s most comprehensive selection of new homes.

 

The success of NewHomeSource.com demonstrates that the combined knowledge and experience of a consortium of industry leaders creates better solutions. In 2003, BHI founded New Home Technologies, a subsidiary consortium of new home builders and product suppliers, to create Envision, an fully-integrated and standardized online design options management portal. Today, BHI continues to create products that satisfy the needs of the industry and help move it forward, from video production to banner advertising to Realtor services.”

ECO FRIENDLY DEVELOPMENT – 43Urban Village

 

The efforts of new construction and remodeling of single-family homes to make them efficient and sustainable has grown based on recent studies. The new construction market for sustainable homes has increased its market share to 17% in 2011. The share percentage is expected to rise another 12%-21% by the year of 2016 based on a report from the McGraw-Hill Construction firm.

The report indicated that the two fundamental aspects that attribute to growth of the green market, sustainable homes are deemed to have a higher value and provide the benefit of lowering utility expenses as well. The option of going green and having a better quality home has also been the catalyst of this movement and gives sustainable homes the advantage over the average home.

The reason that many home buyers haven’t adapted to building or purchasing a green home in the past is because of the higher costs included. Studies from a recent survey show that many construction firms haven’t had this problem is the last several years.

Here in the South Florida region of Broward County on the Fort Lauderdale city line, the Henri Frank Group of Remax Preferred has been selected to represent the sales of the Eco-friendly 43Urban Village Live + Work community in Oakland Park, Florida. This community is being developed and built with green in mind.

 

The Henri Frank Group at Remax Preferred is located in Fort Lauderdale at 2810 E Oakland Park Boulevard, 2166 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors, Florida, 2 University Drive, Plantation, FL and North Ocean Boulevard at the Hillsboro Inlet in Hillsboro Shores, FL.

City of Oakland Park, Florida Real Estate is Growing

No comments

The City of Oakland Park was founded after the abolishment of the Town of Floranada. After the hurricane in September 1926, which devastated the area, was when some say the prosperity for this farming community now called Oakland Park began. In the late Spring of 1929, it was determined that the Town of Floranada was not going to return to the way it was prior to the hurricane since so many of the residence and businesses fled the area. Those that were left voted to tighten their belts, start the City of Oakland Park and make major changes. It is now grown to nearly 43,000 residents and covers an area of over eight square miles. West of U.S. 1 to NW 31st Avenue and the north fork of Middle River to North Andrews Gardens. The City of Wilton Manors is just south of Oakland Park. Single family homes, condominiums and townhomes of Oakland Park as well as income producing properties in Oakland Park are priced less than those east of Oakland Park called Coral Ridge, south of the City of Oakland Park, Wilton Manors making the real estate desireable to those who want the lifestyle of of Wilton Manors, Coral Ridge, the Landings and being only 2 to 3 miles to the Oakland Park Beach and the Fort Lauderdale Beach. Oakland Park has a wonderful Historical Society which was founded in the 1970’s and continues to preserve the heritage of this Florida City in Broward County Florida. It has its own library, notable recreation programs and parks.

Waterfront properties in Oakland Park and drylots with Single Family Homes and condominiuns and townhomes in Oakland Park are very popular and are being sold by the Henri Frank Group of REMAX Preferred. Located at 2810 E Oakland Park Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale and also at 2166 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors. We can help you with a property search of available properties in Oakland Park.

Diversity is a part of the Oakland Park population. Many gay couples have been moving into the City of Oakland Park from northeast gay communities of New York City, Fire Island, Provincetown, Rehoboth New Jersey and New Hope New Jersey. The gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender population continues to grow in large numbers since 2010. Homes are afforable, taxes are lower than homeowners of the northern region of the United States pay, making this region of South Florida very attractive. The Henri Frank Group at REMAX Preferred has a diversity within its group of gay realtors here in South Florida. Buy, sell or rent with the openess you are looking for with Henri Vezie and Frank Vigliotti.

ABOUT TOWN IN FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA

No comments

Fort Lauderdale reacts to the budget crisis! It’s a steamy “hot” summer day, standing in the sun, over 100 degrees, but it didn’t stop the protestors
at the corner of Oakland Park Blvd and Federal Highway. About 20-people raised their flags, painted up their signs and hit the streets. At the intersection as I sat there waiting for the light to change, horns were honking, people screaming from their cars, reacting to those who cared enough to protest this cause. Almost anytime there is a crisis, a cause, a time to protest, go to this corner and you’ll see the crowd. Go Fort Lauderdale, it’s always great to see our 2nd Amendment right being exercised! And one of the great things about South Florida, it’s composition of interesting people from all over the world; democrat, republican, young, old, gay, straight, and everything in the between.
