You may want to consider other options to verify the address given.

If its within the city limits of Robertsdale you can check with the zoning and planning for the 911 address.

If its not within the city limits try checking with the 911 office.

You could also check with the US Postmaster

If you need assistance, give me a call.

Hi Wesley, I went ahead and did a little digging. 18970 Pecan Lane is the guest house to 18980. Both were listed as one and no, it did not sell. It expired in January and has not been re listed for sale.

Warm regards,

I live in the Silverhill area and work the entire Baldwin County area but I am particularly interested and invested in the Robertsdale area, so I am concerned with what is going on in our market and wanted to research this completely before answering your question. My answers concerning what I found are related only to the immediate, close-in, "in-town" Robertsdale area. Of all the homes on the market in your area, there are only 9 over $300,000 actively listed at this time. Of these, all but one have had price reductions since listing, and most are significant reductions-$30,000 to $90,000 less than the original list price. In comparing the 3 month period between Aug. 1-Oct. 31, 2009 with the same 3 month period in 2010 these are the statistics: In 2009 the average sales price was $82,683 compared with $101,089 this year. Homes sold for 94.49% of the listing price last year, but this year that number rose to 96,94%. the average days on the market for last year was 156, while this year that number has fallen to 138. Here is the real difference-homes last year were listed at an average of $65.80 per square foot while this year the per square foot price has fallen to $61.00 per square foot. That is the key: sellers are becoming realistic and understanding that in this market they must lower their prices if they want to sell. Remember, these numbers apply only to the Robertsdale, Alabama area during Aug. to Oct., 2009 and Aug. to Oct. 2010. These stats show the market is improving slowly and this information means we may be possibly trending toward a healthier, more balanced market that will benefit sellers. ... more

Hi Kelley,

The address that you inquired about was a recent foreclosure, and on the date you posted your question this home was not an active listing. The home went on the market on July 1st and went under contract on August 2nd with a buyer. Hopefully, that buyer is you?

Many times we do get calls from buyers who have knowledge of a home that will soon be available, but until it is posted in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) we won't know it's price or availability.

For others who may be waiting for a certain home to hit the market, a real estate agent can put a search on that address for you that will email it to you as soon as it comes available. I'm always happy to provide this service for my clients and welcome new buyers to do the same for.

I agree that in looking through the available properties currently, that most seem on target.
You may use any tool you feel necessary in your negotiations, just keep in mind that foreclosure and short sale properties are considered distressed and are usually priced accordingly.
If the property is priced right, and you love it and can see making your home there, then negotiate the best you can, but don't allow your emotional attachment to it to drive your price up beyond what you are willing to pay.,

Best wishes to you in your endeavors and as I said before, if you would like to speak privately, just dash me off an email!
