Are you looking to purchase your condo for your use, for short-tem rental or for you primary residence? This is important in answering your question. First, the market in Gulf Shores is great right now for buyers, but you need to look at what your goals are with this unit to determine if this is the best option for you. A good agent can supply a lot of information to you about fair market prices, what you can expect in the long and short term, and what you can expect in price fluctuation over the next year or two. Have you looked at comparable properties? If you aren't already working with a Realtor, I would love to help you as I work the beach on a regular basis, and am in fact closing a condo sale on West Beach Blvd. tomorrow.
