    Are we there yet?  That is the bottom.  May be is my answer.  It appears we are there in our beach front market of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama.  But consider this, interest rates are starting to edge back up and if you keep waiting to try and time the exact moment we are at the bottom you may be looking at a wash or possibly costing you more in the long run.    Take for example a $300K sales price with 20% down.  That leaves a mortgage of $240K.  If you would have purchased just over a month ago you could have had a rate of 4% on a 30 year fixed.  Today that rate is 4.75%.  What does that mean for the buyer? Rate of 4% on a 30 year fixed mortgage with a loan amount of $240K    Monthly Payment: $1145.80    Total Interest Paid: $172,486.82 Rate of 4.75% on a 30 year fixed mo...

Did I scare you?  Let me be completely clear, "THERE IS NO OIL IN ORANGE BEACH AND GULF SHORES!"  Our beaches are open for business.  The water is pretty.  The waves are crashing.  As I am writing this, I am watching a dolphin boat sail by and a para-sailor get dipped.  Do not cancel your reservations.  Do not cancel your vacations.  Do not let the media scare you.  Check with informed local officials or these websites for correct info.  NOAA Deep Water Horizon Response Mobile Press Register
