According to the Baldwin REALTORS® using data from its Multiple Listing Service (MLS), the positive trend for real estate in our area is continuing through AUG. One difference to note from numbers for August in Baldwin County is that for the first time since pandemic, numbers for transactions in resort properties were higher than those of traditional residential properties.
What does this mean for consumers? For sellers, it’s still a great time to sell or exchange resort/investment properties. For buyers, this means you should be prepared. Properties aren’t on the market very long, so wise buyers will be pre-qualified so that when they find that dream property, they will be ready to purchase. Though properties in some areas show shorter average days on market (dom), the average dom for Baldwin County is 89.8 days, just under three months.
