I’ve written before about investing in Davie condos or townhomes near NSU and the rest of the South Florida Education Center (SFEC). If your preference leans toward purchasing new construction, you may want to consider Jasmine Lakes Phase II in Davie, which is ideally located just south of the SFEC near the SE corner of Davie Road and Griffin Road.
Currently, there are several 2- and 3-bedroom condos in two-story Mediterranean style lakeside buildings that are reasonably priced in the
$180’s and $190’s $170’s and $180’s (base price). Standard with each unit are laminate countertops, carpeting in the living areas and ceramic tile flooring in the foyer, kitchen and bathrooms. Optional upgrades include granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, laminate wood floors, 20″ tile and more. The maintenance fee is a relatively low $209 when compared to similar condos. The second-story condos feature vaulted ceilings and limited attic space while the ground floor units offer a small concrete patio with a built-in planter. All floorplans at Jasmine Lakes Phase II feature kitchens with a pass-through snack bar which opens to the dining area, and pre-wiring for a security system. Some units offer views of the lake.
Community amenities include a two-level clubhouse that, once the renovations are complete, will include a state-of-the-art fitness center, ping-pong, and possibly a billiard table. Already in place are brand new luxurious kitchen facilities with an adjacent open serving bar area (with sink), cabana bathrooms, a seating area on each level, and a water feature in the lobby. Residents can also enjoy the heated swimming pool and spa, as well as a tennis/basketball court which is due to be refurbished soon. The community also features a walking/jogging trail around a second lake. Jasmine Lakes Phase II is approximately 15-20 minutes from Fort Lauderdale Beach and many Broward County hot spots.
From now through the end of 2007 I’m offering buyers a rebate of $1,000 after closing if they purchase one of these condos through me. So if you’re considering viewing any of the units at Jasmine Lakes Phase II, be sure to contact Leanne Paynter at 954-846-1600 to schedule a showing. UPDATE: Only a few of the 2-bedroom floorplans are still available at this time so don’t delay!
