Hallandale Beach, Florida
Homes for Sale
Like other areas along the coast, Hallandale is known for its beautiful beaches, golf courses, and close proximity to recreational opportunities. In addition to Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino, it is also home to the Village at Gulfstream Park, which boasts shopping and dining venues, along with being a business center, with major companies such as PwC having offices there.
Cost of Living
While the average home price is higher than the national average, the cost of housing is lower than many coastal areas bordering it. Since it is within driving distance to more populous cities around it such as Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, and Miami, it is viewed as a cheaper alternative. Even waterfront properties are a bargain relative to other nearby areas.
Broward County Transit provides bus service within Hallandale Beach and to nearby Aventura and the Metro-Bus Metro Transit Agency provides service to some areas in Miami, but the service isn't particularly convenient or quick. However, Hallandale Beach is about a half-hour drive from both Fort Lauderdale and Miami via Interstate 95, except during rush hour when it will take you longer. It is also conveniently located to both Fort Lauderdale International Airport and Miami International Airport.
