Sales Soar in 2017 for Property Valued Over 1 Million in Baldwin County

Million Dollar Property Sales, Last Five Years | Orange Beach | Gulf Shores | Eastern Shore  Alabama  {11.1.17}

Million Dollar Property Sales in Lower Alabama, specifically Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Eastern Shore and surrounding area is showing a dramatic increase in demand and closed sales in 2017.

While demand is up for average priced homes and condos along the Alabama Gulf Coast- is the Million dollar real estate market up? Below are the closings for Million + Dollar Property in Baldwin County Alabama since 2012.

Below are a list of sales in Baldwin County Alabama over 1 Million Dollars- for the Last 5 years.

  • 2012:  87 Homes or Condos Sold over the $1,000,000 price.  The median days on the Market were: 58.  The total dollar amount sold was $114,000,000.  Making the average sales price: $1.3M.  

Drilling these numbers down further, I can tell you- the Million dollar real estate market in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for 2012, 2013 and 2014 are skewed.  I discussed the amazing discounts that were given by the developer of Turquoise Place during those years in a past post.  Of the numbers referenced above- 57 of the 87 Million dollar and above closings- were from Turquoise Place Condo in Orange Beach.  Without these closings- there would have only been 30 Homes and Condos to sell in Lower Alabama over the million dollar mark in 2012.

  • 2013: 78 Homes or Condos Sold in Baldwin County Alabama over the Million dollar price tag. The median days on the market were 64, and the total combined sales amount was $ 95 Million dollars.  The average sales price: $1.2 Million.

Once again, in 2013 the numbers are not an accurate reflection with 50 of the 78 closings over 1 Million Dollars belonging to Turquoise Place Condos in Orange Beach.

  • 2014: 64 Total Sales over 1 Million Dollars, Median Days on the Market : 86 and a total combined sales amount of $81 Million Dollars.  (40 of the 64 Closings that year were from Turquoise Place.) Average Sales Price: $1.3M
  • 2015: 60 Total Sales over $1 Million Dollars. Median Days on the Market: 257. Total combines sales of: $80 Million Dollars.  (Only 10 of the 60 closings are reflected by TP in this year, which also explains the larger Days on the Market Median number). Average Sales Price: $1.3M
  • 2016: 65 Total Sales over $1 Million Dollars. Median Days on the Market: 190. Total combined sales: $91 Million. (Again 10 TP Sales this year) Average Sales Price: $1.4M
  • 2017: (As of 10/30/2017- A whole year is not yet reflected in these numbers).  So far already 92 Properties selling Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Eastern Shore and surrounding areas in Baldwin County Alabama over the 1 Million dollar price tag.  The Median DOM: 147, with the combined sales total of $125 Million dollars so far in 2017!  Average Sales Price: $1.4 Million

UPDATED {03/01/2018}  After 2017 closed out- the total number of Million dollar homes or condos that sold in Baldwin County Alabama was: 108, almost as many as the previous two years combined.  So far in 2018- there have been 21 Million Dollar + Properties to close.  If the market follows this same momentum for the remaining 10 months of 2018, we will be on track to close 126 Million dollar listings! 

While the average sales price has remained steady over the last 5 years for property sales over 1 Million dollars, the total number of sales has been steadily increasing over the last several years with a much more dramatic increase in 2017 suggesting an increase in overall consumer confidence.

If you have a property in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, or Surrounding Baldwin County that is valued over 1 million dollars, now may be the time to consider putting that property on the market.  I have a very detailed plan for listing luxury and high dollar properties.  The high end buyer isn’t just sitting around searching Zillow.  Putting a luxury listing on the MLS and wishing it luck just isn’t going to cut it.  I would love to go over the professional marketing tactics and strategies I will put in to place for your high end home. The market and demographic is much different when seeking out the Million dollar buyer and cannot be handled the same as an average priced property.

Let me put my decade of real estate marketing to work for you!

Fall is the Season for SOLD

 

Summer is gone- Have you missed the “sell boat”?

Summer has come to an end and you probably are thinking you’ve lost the opportunity to sell, and need to wait till next summer. But that’s far from the truth! Although it’s not as hectic and crazy with the swarm of buyers on the market, the fall season brings out the most serious of lookers. They are the pool of buyers that waited out the summer frenzy to find their perfect home in the fall, and you don’t want to miss these buyers! They are ready to make a move, today! And selling in a slower period does not equate to less money. That’s a misconception that home owners have based on untrue data that floats around. With the right agent, and your home being priced correctly, you can get a great deal selling your home during the fall season. And might actually prefer it. Here are the top 3 benefits to listing during the fall season.

1. Serious Buyers

– Let’s be honest, if buyers are out during the busy season, looking for homes, they are serious and ready to buy. Although the summer brings in a large crowd, that crowd contains a lot of people that are excited by the season, and fall into the “trend” of house hunting. These people end up not really being serious about the process, and tend to hold off for another time. If people are investing time to look during the fall season, they are more likely to be interested in actually buying your home, instead of touring it.

2. Less Competition

– Selling in the fall isn’t something many families can accomplish due to personal schedules. That’s why a significant amount of homes get listed during the summer season. Which means that summer time brings in a lot of competition. Selling in the fall means the potential house next door that has slightly more perks that may have been listed during the summer, doesn’t make your home sit stagnant, since everyone wanted your neighbor’s house. It also doesn’t devalue your home because of the house that could go up next door that could be under-priced in your neighborhood, and draw all of the attention.

With a slower season, you get dedicated attention to your property, which increases the chance of a sale.

3. Easier to Find Your Dream Home

– Not only do you get to benefit from a slower season during the selling process, but you can also benefit on the buying side. With less competition on your dream house, you can get a better deal. The summer brings a lot of missed opportunities for buyers on their dream homes, because they go off the market instantly. This will give you the opportunity to get your home on the market and take your time to find the right one to resize into. A much calmer pace to the transaction will make it less stressful, and everyone all around happier. Don’t feel rushed into buying a home overnight during the summer, it could turn into a headache. If you want a far more peaceful transaction, that has calmer pace, then selling during the fall is perfect for you.
