Business License for condo owners in Orange Beach raised over 50%          The Press Register reported that the City of Orange Beach has decided to raise condo owners business licenses.  The price of the license hasn't seen a hoist since 2000, however, an Orange Beach and Gulf Shores travel and tourism report suggests that visitors to our area could hit 5M this year.  Beach services and upkeep will need to be able to keep up with these numbers and raising the license fees will help add an additional $200k in revenue for the city.       The Baldwin county coast is in the lead for the gulf coast lodging/rentals market share according to recent Gulf Coast Convention and Visitors Bureaus reports.  These numbers are likely a result of the combination of recent advertising campaigns as well a...

The City of Orange Beach may be one step closer to having its own civic center as City Council members unanimously passed a resolution giving Mayor Tony Kennon authority to negotiate a purchase and sale agreement for The Wharf Conference Center.  Construction of the current Conference Center began in 2008. It now includes 18,600 square feet of space and can accommodate a variety of events including large meetings, receptions for up to 2000 attendees, meal seating for 1,600 people, and exhibition space for 100 booths. As Mayor Kennon stated on Baldwin County Now.com, "We are looking at a civic center that hopefully would subsidize itself through the contractual leases that go with the purchase and with possible renting of the building throughout the year."    Comments on City of Orange B...

Purchasing a home in beautiful Orange Beach is a very emotional and personal decision, which is different for everyone. The spacious beach house that might be right for you might not appeal to someone else who wants a maintenance-free condo.  In this market, it seems that all buyers have one thing in common: no matter what a home is listed for, no matter how much they realize it is the perfect home, the buyer wants  a better deal.  He immediately asks  "what can we take off the listing price?" when making an offer.  This  is considered the "X factor." Don't let the love of a "deal" cause you to lose the perfect house. You, like many other buyers, may feel that "X amount" should automatically come off the price of the home, which does not take into consideration all the comps  (neighborh...
