Hello, my name is Sib Howell and I'm a Realtor here in Saraland, Alabama. The Kali Oka area of Saraland is a great area with very nice homes and are in the celebrated Saraland School District. The growth of Saraland and North Mobile is just now gathering momentum and with the announcement of expanded jobs for "both" steel mills, the potential is great. There are a number of investers that have focused on the Saraland/North Mobile area exclusively and are in the process of positioning themselve for a real presence in the next 2 years. I am a Broker with Exit Realty. I've spent a lot of years in the North Mobile area. The growth over the past ten years has been phenominal. I can only expect this area to continue its growth for at least the next 10 years. With interest rates as low as they are right now it's a very good time to "get in" on the growth. Good luck with your acerage and best wishes for 2011.... more
The new Saraland City Schools will greatly affect the value of homes in the Saraland area. The city council is forecasting 4,000 families moving to the area in the next 2 years. We have seen this happen firsthand. We lived in Oxford, AL. They formed their own city school, and within 5 years the population had doubled and the price of homes were 35% higher than the neighboring city of Anniston.
I live in Saraland. Great place to be right now!... more
