Rio Vista is one of those special neighborhoods that is difficult to explain in just one paragraph. The home prices range is the largest of any upscale neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale. Point lot mansions in Rio Vista have sold in excess of thirty million dollars, while little historic cottages in need of renovation can start in the $700ks. Being one of Fort Lauderdale’s oldest neighborhoods, there are still plenty of cottages and houses from the 1920s to the 1940s. Unfortunately, those cottages are being torn down as fast as they can sell to put up ultra-modern luxury two story houses that sell for $2 to $4 million plus. Thankfully Rio Vista still has retained its allure for buyers looking to buy into this upscale area. This family friendly area caters to a younger wealthier family-oriented buyer that love its wide tree lined streets and spectacular architecture.
