Housing in Pompano Beach

A view of houses and condos in Pompano Beach, FloridaPompano Beach, just North of Fort Lauderdale, has undergone an incredible transformation with stunning new beachfront development and citywide infrastructure upgrades. This revitalization has attracted top developers like the Waldorf Astoria Residences, Ritz Carlton Residences, and others building luxurious multi-million dollar condo properties along the prime beachfront. While many of these new builds are already sold out despite massive price tags, there are still plenty of amazing and considerably more affordable options in Pompano’s older buildings and desirable neighborhoods.

Many long-standing condo complexes are currently undergoing extensive 40 and 50-year concrete restoration projects. These renovations are required by code to secure building safety and modernize important items like balconies, doors, roofs, fire and security systems, and exteriors. Once complete, the improvements essentially make them like brand new buildings.
