There are many informative and outstanding books about the south Florida area. As a real estate professional these books help me to understand the foundation of homes and architecture.
These books can help you as a seller or buyer, not only understand the architectures, but also the culture, climate, history and lifestyle of southeast Florida.
Here are books that I recommend you read if you want to learn more about Palm Beach County, Miami/Dade and Fort Lauderdale homes and architecture.
