Property taxes are different for every property. I suggest going to the city of Fairhope website. Go to the probate tab and search for the property there to find the property tax amount. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.... more
Bought a home in Gulf Shores Jan 2014. Haven't been able use the master bath to bathe in since due to the shoddy construction and tub leaks. Have a mold farm growing out of the floor in the master bedroom next to my bed from the tub leak. I'm allergic to mold so I can't sleep in that room anymore. Contacted D.R. Horton's non existent warranty service center by fax requesting help. I've been COMPLETLY ignored as have the other problems I've sent them. Not even a call to offer an air purifier from Horton. They left insulation out of the walls during construction and I had to make them put it in. I have a shingle blown off my roof from your everyday wind here on the coast. Not even one nail in it I can see and plans call for 6. A yard full of dead sod they improperly installed and other things the show their complete lack of concern for any type of quality work. To make it worse they just ignore you if there are problems with the crappy work they did building the house. If you buy a Horton house you're a fool!!! Ask the other owners in my neighborhood.... more
This is the sort of thing that you can write into a contract as something the seller must agree to do before closing or to give you a credit at closing based on a written quote so you can take care of it after closing. However, depending on the type of loan and how picky the lender wants to be, I always recommend making sure it is done ahead of closing so the lender and you both know it's done.
Would you like to put an offer in on this property? If you're not already working with a Realtor and need assistance with this or any other real estate issues, I'd be honored to help. Just give me a call or send an e-mail from my profile.... more
Depending on the price of the property, we usually ask 4% when doing a one-time-showing agreement to bring a buyer to a FSBO. However, this is not to say that this is a "typical" fee.
Would you give me a call and give me the address for your home so I can come see it? I have done several deals this way if I've had a good reason to believe a property would be a good match for serious buyers. I then only ask for the OTS contract when a date is being set for the showing and names are put on the agreement.... more

We've had problems like this with some of our listings being hijacked, pictures and all, and advertised for rent for way lower than would be realistic. Sometimes it's properties that are for rent, but we've even had for-sale listings hijacked as part of a rental scam.
My advice to anyone looking for a rental is two-fold:
1. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Research the address in a browser to see if it comes up elsewhere and/or drive by the property to see if there's a sign out front that matches the contact information in the ad. If it doesn't match, please call the real number to inform them of the scam so an alert like this one can be sent out and sites carrying the ad can be notified of the scam in order to get it removed, hopefully before someone falls for the scam and mails a check.
2. Only put the money in the hand of the landlord or property manager in person after seeing the property in person. If you're instructed to send a check in exchange for the key being mailed to you, this is a scam.
Basically, if your antennas go up, don't do it.... more
