Introduction to Hollywood Florida

The City of Hollywood is a mature and built-out community, where rapid population growth in the 1950s and 1960s has given way to a population that is stable in size but undergoing significant changes in its composition. The October 1997 issue of Money Magazine noted that Hollywood's demographics best represent what the United States will look like in the year 2022. Hollywood's racial diversity, cultural variety, and blend of the old and young are where the country is headed. 

The City of Hollywood is the third largest city in Broward County and 12th largest in the State of Florida. Its coastal city of over 130,000 residents located in Broward County, Hollywood is nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport abuts the city, while Port Everglades, the second busiest cruise port in the world, is partially within its municipal boundaries. Interstate 95, the Florida Turnpike, Tri-County Commuter Rail, and two major railroads cut through the city in a north-south direction. Miami International Airport and the Port of Miami are less than twenty-five miles away, providing further opportunities for Hollywood residents and companies to have access to the global marketplace.

The region is served by a substantial post-secondary educational infrastructure, including Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University, the University of Miami, a number of smaller private universities and colleges, and a community college system.

Hollywood attracts visitors from around the globe who come to stay along the historic Oceanfront Broadwalk. This 2.5-mile pedestrian walkway is just steps from the Atlantic and is lined with shops, restaurants and accommodations to fit every taste and budget. The city also boasts a high quality of life with more than 60 parks, three municipal golf courses and a variety of recreational amenities including a nearly 10-acre urban park Arts Park at Young Circle located in the heart of Downtown Hollywood. The Arts Park continually features outdoor concerts and special events inclusive of a burgeoning arts scene. Recently named a Top 100 Best Communities for Young People, there is no doubt that Hollywood's growth trajectory will continue on its current path well into the years to come.

What are Comparable Sales?

The market or direct sales comparison approach is a strategy to estimate the of value of a property. In this case, we've taken a look at apartment building for sale Hollywood Florida and the surrounding towns that have similar features. Then, we undertake a process of comparing market data - that is, prices paid for similar properties, prices asked by owners, and offers made by prospective buyers or the tenants willing to buy or lease.

Typically a comparison grid is used and adjustments are made to each comparable sale used for major differences between the comparable and the subject property. These adjustments are made for factors like location, construction quality, and significant amenities. In this approach (the market/direct sales approach), the attempts are made to both gauge and reflect the anticipated reaction by a typical purchaser to the subject property. 

Why Comparable Sales?

Taking this approach can sometimes have beneficial outcomes for the estimated value of your property as compared to other appraisal strategies. As a broker, it's my job to establish the best value I can in any property I bring to market. That's why I spend the time to create comparable sales sheets and establish the value of my client's property.
