The beach is just at the end of the block from this home; I would guess about 500 to 700 yards. You could easily just grab your beach towel, chair, cooler, book...jump on your golf cart and be on the beach in just a minute or so. I would be happy to send you a video of drive through of the neighborhood and the gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico. :-) ... more

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

Hi Tonnie,
A home owners association fee or HOA, is a fee that is collected on a monthly basis for the community in which the home or condo is located. Fees can very quite a bit from a complex or subdivision and even the size of home can make a difference in how much you pay compared to your neighbor. HOA's fees are typically collected by a management company and they use the money to maintain the community areas of the property. For example... gardener, pool service, handyman, etc.
Hope that helps.
Tyson

I suggest calling the school or the Baldwin County Board of Education. The maps do not always reflect the most recent changes in boundaries. I hope this helps.

The Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area is perfect for retirees! In fact, our population swells in the winter months as our "snow birds" come into town. Our area is quiet and peaceful and nearly crime free. We like to call it Mayberry with a "G". Our local rec centers offer everything from aerobics classes to tennis lessons and our northern transplants particularly appreciate our beautiful Gulf Coast weather. We rarely get below 40 degrees! ... more

Since this property has already sold, can I help you something else? I can research the MLS database to confirm what's actually available for active consideration and e-mail to you for your review. I can also save the search criteria specific to you for automatic notifications when properties are new or back on the market, or have a price change. Please contact me via my profile and we'll get started. ... more

Mary McNair answered:
Are you looking to buy or sell?

Although an agent can choose to give a price opinion, legally we're not supposed to unless we are acting as an agent, which involves a contract for services as a listing or buyer's agent. (Without a agency agreement, I would only be able to assist with purchase paperwork without a pricing opinion.)

If there is a specific property you need to sell or want to buy, please contact me directly and we'll discuss how I can help.

Greta Collins answered:
Most condos DO allow pets, but they require a pet deposit. Usually there is a limit on number of pets & size of the dogs. Each condo association has its own rules. I have shown many units at this Yacht Club Drive location, and each section is different, but, most allow pets within a certian criteria of numbers, and weight.
I would be happy to show you these condos, and we can get specific answers from the Sellers.
please feel free to call me, Greta Collins, 251-767-3097, Fairhope/Daphne, Alabama

I checked the listing details on the MLS. The only subdivision amenities I see listed are club house, fishing pier and gazebo. I called and spoke with the listing agent and she wasn't aware of a neighborhood pool.

This property is being sold with all contents included, so keep or sell to help pay for the house!

Do you want to schedule a showing? It's very easy to show. Just visit my profile and contact me directly to request an appointment.

I can assist with other properties, too. We can discuss what you're needing and the areas you're willing to consider when we talk.

We can also discuss what you liked about this property so I can help you research other active options, as acting fast is key in the current market conditions.

Mary McNair answered:
If you buy this or any other property where furniture is being transferred, you will want to be sure your offer states that furnishings are being included at no value if you are trying to get financing.

I ran into this issue when some folks were only including a couple of pieces of furniture. The lender made us get a furniture appraiser to give a written yard-sale-value appraisal of the pieces being sold with the house. That figure was deducted from the purchase price and the balance was left as the cost basis for the financing. It might be best to agree to what the real estate and furnishings are worth separately, with a bill of sale for the contents contingent on the purchase of the real estate. You close on the real estate, then give separate payment for the personal property immediately afterward.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Mary McNair answered:
Thank you for your inquiry.

According to the data entered in the MLS system, the HOA dues average out to $95/month.

Insurance is something you'd need to get quoted, as rates will be dependent on the deductible level you choose and the specific property. To get a quote, contact an insurance agent and give the address and MLS number so the agent can get some basic information about the property. Of course, this wouldn't be an official quote, but it would at least give you an idea for determining if the property of your choice will fit into your budget.

Do you have a Realtor helping you with your home search and research? If not, please contact me via my profile so I can get started helping you toward success.
