Brad Parscale, campaign manager of President Donald Trump‘s 2020 re-election bid, just might have found a renter in Florida. The Fort Lauderdale unit he had up for lease at a price of $4,500 a month went off the market a couple of weeks ago.
Parscale first placed the townhome on the rental market a year ago, for $6,500. The rental price was dropped to $5,500 and went off the market in July 2019.
In December 2019, the digital media consultant then pivoted and put his unit in the Gale Residences up for sale. The “immaculate” residence hit the market for $985,000, before a price cut to $965,000 earlier in February.
Since then, the pristine property had been available for both lease and purchase. The listing returned this spring as a monthly rental for $5,200, and then the price dropped down to $4,500 in April.
That price cut might have enticed a renter to make the leap to this waterfront property. Terms considered for the rental include a “lease purchase.” So, if a potential tenant likes it, there could be an option to own.
Whether for renters or owners, the place has plenty of perks.
The listing details for the swanky spot say the place is “designer decorated” and features “over $200,000 in upgrades alone.” The 12-story luxury high-rise was finished in 2018, so Parscale’s two-bedroom place is practically new. It’s just a block away from the beach, and the 1,488–square-foot interior features a stylish, modern decor, a grey palette, beamed ceilings, and comes fully furnished.
The open floor plan features a living area with flat-screen TV and a sectional sofa. The sleek, open kitchen features a waterfall island with bar seating, and looks out to an adjacent dining area.
Sliding glass doors open out to a private outdoor terrace with a built-in barbecue, fire pit, and seating. Abstract artwork, modern light fixtures, and throw rugs decorate the space.
The master suite includes a floor-to-ceiling window, and a marble bath with dual vanities.
The building is located close to the airport, and its amenities include a 24/7 concierge, beach service, two pools, a screening room, and fitness center.
As for Parscale, he recently upgraded to a $2.4 million waterfront home with a pool, boat dock, and summer kitchen—also in Fort Lauderdale. The deal closed on this upscale abode in early January.
Built in 1968, the newly remodeled home, which backs onto a canal, has four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and 3,415 square feet of living space.
It is set on over a quarter of an acre, and its updated interior includes marble floors, glass walls, and a kitchen with high-end Gaggenau appliances.
The grounds feature an outdoor space for dining and cooking as well as a heated pool. Updates include a Sonos audio system, Lutron window treatments, as well as lush landscaping outside. And there’s plenty of room to park your boat, with dock space for a 70-foot vessel.
Parscale, 44, rose to political prominence as the digital media director for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Before that, he worked for the Trump organization as a website designer in 2011. In 2015, Trump hired Parscale’s firm, Giles-Parscale, to create a website for his then-exploratory campaign.
After running a winning campaign, the consultant was tapped back in 2018 as the campaign manager for Trump’s re-election bid.
