Therefore, it’s no secret that home prices in the tri-county area have skyrocketed. For some wealthy transplants, buying state-of-the-art luxury condominiums, with amenities galore, is a no-brainer—as opposed to purchasing a single-family home in need of gutting, or at a minimum, some renovating. In Broward County, Related Group’s latest new build (groundbreaking is slated for the fourth quarter of this year with a completion date scheduled for the first quarter of 2025) is Casamar.
