Voluntary Sales AssistanceIf a homeowner located within the 65+ DNL contour wishes to sell their property and relocate, the County will assist themwith the sale of their property on the open real estate market for Fair Market Value (FMV). The FAA requires that anavigation easement be given in exchange for participation in this program. BCAD is challenging the FAA regarding therequirement of the easement.A recent market absorption study for the noise impacted area shows a maximum of 22 properties per year could be soldthrough this type of program to avoid market saturation. In accordance with County Commission policy to provide noisemitigation in excess of the minimum federal standards, BCAD recommends implementation of this program. Program Eligibility Est.

Voluntary Sales Assistance Process for Assisting in the Sale of a Home1. Homeowner enters Sales Assistance Program by signing an agreement with Broward County which includes: Requiring Homeowner to list property at FMV The County will provide a differential to assist in the sale of the property if seller receives an offer of less than FMV Homeowner agrees to participate in Sound Insulation Program2. The County orders appraisal of the property to determine FMV. The appraisal will be conducted according to guidelines contained in the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act, as amended3. Homeowner lists property for sale on the open real estate market at FMV4. Homeowner receives an offer to purchase the property: The County will pay closing costs The County will also provide a sales differential of the difference between the FMV and the sales price, if the owner sells for less than FMV. Homeowner conveys avigation easement to CountyAdvantages: Allows Homeowners to relocate outside of Noise Impact Area Maintains neighborhood stability
Sales Assistance Recommended Because… Maintains the City of Dania Beach’s ad valorem tax base by keeping ownership with individuals instead of County ownership Stabilizes existing community by avoiding vacant properties Maintains property values by not saturating the housing market Maintains property values by seeking market value on the sale of the property Allows homeowners to receive benefits of sound insulation until property can be sold Avoids lengthy and costly property management and maintenance fees
Market Absorption Rate Study A market absorption study was conducted of the Area 1 Noise Impact Area to determine the rate at which noise impacted properties located in the 65+ DNL noise contour can be expected to sell on the open market. This study determined that a maximum of 22 properties per year could be sold and not affect market conditions. The Noise Impact Area is comprised of three distinct neighborhoods which contain 571 single-family homes and 286 duplex units. Noise Location Avg.
