Top 8 Reasons to Live in Oakland Park

  • Enjoying the parks. The city contains over 180 acres of recreational areas, such as parks. Royal Palm Park boasts four lighted tennis courts, four handball/racquetball courts, a lighted basketball court, and a lighted sand volleyball area. Oakland Park Bark Park ensures dogs receive as much fun and exercise as their owners.
  • Waiting for the drop. The house prices you see are simply starting points for negotiation. About 33.7% of listings eventually receive a price drop and 30.1% sell for below the list price. Ask a real estate agent if any rent to own houses fit this criteria or for some suggestions in lowering the cost of a home that you want to buy.
  • Seasonal celebrations. Come October, the city sponsors FallOWeen, which allows kids and adults to compete in a costume contest. In December, residents can enjoy an Evening with Santa, featuring games, holiday crafts, and refreshments.
  • Affordable value. The median value of all Oakland Park homes, including those that are for sale, under rent to own contracts, and not on the market, is $133,500. (During the bottom of the market in 2011, prices were closer to $90,000.) This is more affordable than the median $187,100 for properties in metropolitan Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
  • Bargaining for treasures. The city rewards bargain hunters at the Oakland Park Flea Market, which features such merchandise as clothes, jewelry, and wigs. More haggling happens during the Citywide Yard Sale, where you're welcome to both buy or sell used goods.
  • Paying less. The median list price of city real estate is $144,900. However, the eventual median sale price is lower at $130,500. A bit of negotiating produces this discount of nearly 10%. This price gets you an average home that was built in 1966, has 1,122 square feet, and produces property taxes of $2,930 per year. About 37% of city homes are between 1,000 to 1,400 square feet and 37% are under 1,000. About 38% were built from 1960 to 1979 and only 6% were constructed in the 21st century.
  • Art of taste. The Culinary Arts District applies creativity to anything related to the kitchen, whether it's edible or something on which to prepare food. The District celebrates fresh produce with the Oakland Park Farmers Market, the only midweek farmers market in the County. It's held every Tuesday. Once a month at the market, the Farm to Chef Showcase allows a local chef to host a cooking demonstration.
