New to Town? How to Settle Into Your New Fort Lauderdale Home

New to Town? How to Settle Into Your New Fort Lauderdale Home

With its sunny disposition and welcoming community, Fort Lauderdale makes it easy to feel at home whether you’ve lived here for three weeks or 30 years. However, as pleasant as the city’s warm weather and white sand beaches may be, they won’t help newcomers when it comes to finding a great hair salon, a trusty mechanic, or other local services after moving to Fort Lauderdale and surrounding towns.

That’s where this guide comes in. If you’ve recently purchased a home in Fort Lauderdale, these resources courtesy of Eileen Kedersha will help you knock out your new-to-town to-do list so you can start enjoying all that sunny Fort Lauderdale has to offer. Give me a call for any special information requests, I will be happy to discuss your questions.
