Those Eastern Views!

Silver Beach 501 Living AreaThere are about 40 miles of white sand beaches from Johnson Beach in Perdido Key to Fort Morgan in Gulf Shores. When it comes to views along our shoreline, east-corner condo units often garner special attention and fetch a premium because of their unobstructed sunrise vistas and their ideal orientation to the clear Gulf waters. Not that we have anything against sunsets! Because of the way our beaches run, we do sometimes get sunsets over the Gulf, but mainly in winter and only just at the western edge. There is truly nothing like a sunrise on the Gulf, though - watching the light track across the sky and sparkle off the Gulf's peaceful surface is food for the soul.

2) Price appreciation may be slowing in some areas and some markets

3) Affordability remains a challenge nationally

4) iBuyers continue but not as aggressive

5) Latino home buying gains momentum

Our Gulf Coast market typically behaves a bit differently than the national market because we are a destination and resort market with many second homes and coastal vacation rental investments. However, it's always good to watch the national trends and compare them to…
