Real Estate Blog

You've heard it before, "A picture's worth 1000 words". 

Never has that been more true than in today's internet driven world, and never is it more true than in the world of real estate. 

A recent study by the National Association of Realtors showed that 44% of home buyers will look at property online before talking to an agent or lender and 95% will ultimately search for property on the internet prior to purchase. This is not likely to come as a surprise many of you but should serve to highlight the increasing importance of excellent internet marketing and photography. 

Unlike most companies on the Gulf Coast, we uniquely understand the impact top-notch photography can have on your ability to sell for top dollar.

The condo market on the gulf coast in Alabama and Florida continues to sizzle.  The number of clients ready to buy a condo now is up 17% over last year. The supply is down by 19% so if you have been thinking of selling your condo and want to receive top dollar for it, now is the time to sell.

Our agents have ready and able buyers that see the value in purchasing a condo here in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Perdido Key.  These buyers have specific criteria and less inventory from which to choose. This lack of supply plus increased demand is the perfect formula for a sellers’ market.

We can bring qualified buyers to you to purchase your condo.  If you list your property with us, we will send your condo listing to our database of over 10,000

Just like the weather, the real estate market on the gulf coast in Alabama and Florida is hot! According to the Alabama Center for Real Estate, demand for new and existing homes and condos is up 40% over last year. And as demand increases so will prices. Now is the time to buy.

In June, 2017 sales rose 15% over the previous year and the selling price for condos and single-family homes rose 16.5% and 14.75% respectively over June last year.  With inventory down 9% for the year, this area could soon become a seller’s market.

Interest rates are still historically low and condo and prices are still reasonable. So, if you have been considering purchasing a second home or investment property, this may be the right time to take the plunge in to Gulf Coast
