Tamarac Homes for Sale

Tamarac, Florida, is a city in Broward County, and its founder Ken Behring named it for Caramat, his car wash business chain. (The town’s name is the backward version of Caramat.) What’s interesting about Tamarac is that it’s a bedroom community and a retirement community. It’s a bedroom community for Fort Lauderdale because many of its residents commute to the city by vehicle or public transport. Plus, seniors 65 years and older make up 26 percent of the population.

Tamarac is a city that puts a high value on art and celebrates it with the annual Tamarac Arts and Crafts Festival. This April event includes photographers, artists, jewelers, woodworkers, crafters, food vendors and trucks and live entertainment. In addition to exciting events, the community also has excellent dining options. For example, buy a home here and enjoy lunch or dinner at Thai Curry. You can order foods like steamed dumplings, soup, fried rice, noodles and other dishes. The restaurant even serves intriguing desserts like fried bananas with ice cream and cheesecake tempura. Other remarkable destinations in Tamarac include Tropic Plants, an all-in-one retail store, zoo and botanical garden. It has over 25 theme gardens and 70 zoo animals. Additionally, this place hosts classes, field trips, parties, and weddings. Animal lovers will be delighted to spend the day with their furry friends at Gary B. Jones Park for People and Pups. The park has two dog areas, pathways, shelters, a dog-washing area and drinking fountains for people and dogs. Family friendly venues include places like JC’S Monkeys, a place where you kids can really monkey around! The facility has large inflatable slides, arcade games and delicious food like pizza and chicken nuggets. Make a note to bring your kids there on Tuesdays because the cost is only $5.99 per child all day on that day only. Adding to the allure for homebuyers with children, Tamarac has four schools: two elementary schools, one middle school, and one charter school.

Speaking of home buyers, they'll also be pleased to discover the diverse real estate market in Tamarac.

Approximately 80 percent of dwellings were built during 1970-1999, and many of them have two bedrooms, though other options are available.
