Hi Jill, You would probably be looking at Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. While I consider Fairhope to be close to the gulf beaches, (thirty minute drive most days), I think you would be more interested in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach.
I have lived in Fairhope my whole life, and I love Point Clear and Fairhope. All the amenities you list are there, as well as down by the beach. I consider Fairhope and Point Clear, well heck the whole eastern shore, to fit your bill and be close. Depends on what you prefer. The Eastern Shore has tons of water activities, and if you have a boat, then all these communities are boater friendly, with public access, free launching and convenience.
If you want to chat, please feel free to call anytime.

Get a free consultation from an attorney but I do not believe you have a case, once the bank owns the house they can do with it what they choose. I would keep that information in case they ever attempt a deficiency claim.

It means nothing really. There are many factors that come into play and without knowing anything about the area it is impossible to speculate. Reasons like, average time on market in this area, wealth of the owners in the area, the type of sale (short sale v regular sale), the market may not have yet reached a capitulation point (the time when one seller says "I give" and moves his home to where known buyers are buiying in other areas) are the top of the list.... more
The seller has the right to accept, reject, or counter your offer based on all the terms presented, not just the sale price. In a multiple offer situation with similar terms the sellers agent may ask for everyones highest and best offer. Cash offers and offers with solid financing get priority... more
I predict there will be a boost in the market as soon as we get the tanker contract! Fingers crossed.... Regardless, we are entering the traditionally slower winter months. Typically, real estate sales pick up after Mardi Gras. My advice would be to buy now and sell after Mardi Gras if possible.
If I can help you with anything, please don't hesitate to contact me. Parrish Walker (251) 459-4764 or email@example.com.... more
Short Sales are becoming more plentiful in real estate due to the sellers owing more on their mortgage than the properties can sell for today. Lower values nationwide have also affected beach values in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Prices may be negotiable, but ultimately, it is the bank that will have to respond to your offer and if it is too low based on an appraisal or market valuation they will order, they often counter with a higher sales price they will accept.
I am a Certified Distressed Property Expert agent in this area and will be happy to try to answer your questions if you would like to call me.
RE/MAX of Gulf Shores
I have a home in Gulf Shores within 600 yards of the beach with about 1600 to 1700 sq feet of living space. Insurance is $4700.00 this year with taxes running $1250.00 with a homestead exemption. For rental purposes the tax would be twice this amount. Larger homes would have higher taxes and insurance costs.
Hope this helps!

Hi Wesley, I have found a listing at 18980 and a listing at 14090. Can you be specific about the property? Each of these has a house on it, so perhaps neither is the one you are inquiring about.
Warm regards, Dedra... more
If you don't see any here on Trulia or anywhere else online, consider working with an agent-- any local agent(s) can help you with current listings, new listings, showings, other information, etc.... more
This is not the source for your answer. Call several insurance agents in your area for quotes, so you can shop for the bast rates. Many times, independent insurance agents can offer very good rates.... more
I checked the MLS Rentals for Loxley and there really isn't anything under $900. There is one for $975 and one for $1000 that have fences, but you may be able to negotiate them to $900. Might have better luck in Daphne Lake Forest area. Send me an email and I will email those to you.
My other recommendation is calling property management companies. I will look for your email. Send it through my website link below.... more
