  After a year-long battle between Orange Beach and The Wharf’s developers to renegotiate a 2004 agreement, a deal has been reached to allow developer AIG Baker to get up to $32.5 million in sales and lodgings taxes that the project will gain during the upcoming 15 years.   The city comes away a winner too. Originally, the agreement required the builder to utilize the 215-acre site by giving back the taxpayers $25 million worth of roads, sewers, wetlands and bridges. Back it 2004, state law required local governments to receive something back from developers that was the same value to any taxes they would rebate for the project. Currently, the laws have changed and taxpayers are no longer required to take something back in exchange for tax breaks. This is what motivated Orange Beach off...

It's no wonder that NAR says that, "90% of all buyers used the internet to search." We have seen this first hand, and especially over the last few months. When people relocate to other states, it's a long distance move. These people usually start by researching the city on the Internet. More times than not, they find one of our 1,100+ relocation websites. If they're serious, they'll request help in a possible home purchase. Due to a very large demand, we need a Buyer's Agent in Orange Beach that is able to assist these prospective home buyers. These families and individuals are wanting assistance from a Realtor, and if you would like to get in contact with them, we need to talk soon. Time is of the essence, and we only need 1 Realtor to be able to contact these people. We NEVER send peo...

  Along with the gentle March breezes quickly blowing through Orange Beach, the spring-breakers are also arriving in town. Once the University of Alabama, Auburn University and Mississippi State University begin weeklong recesses, the Spring Break Season kicks off in Orange Beach. According to Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft, advance reservations for late spring and early summer are strong and every indication is things are going to go well. This has brought much needed optimism that this year will be a busy one.  Over the last several years Orange Beach has witnessed a decline in visitors since its peak in 2007 with an estimated 275,000 visitors to Baldwin County's beaches. April 10-18 is expected to be a busy week for Orange Beach since the public schools in Baldwin and Mobile counties...

Have you ever seen two four-hundred-pound-plus blue marlin dance on their tails while having a sword fight? You’ll find this and more along the Alabama Gulf Coast. Perhaps you have dreamed of exploring the waters with the blue marlin, white marlin, wahoo, blackfin or yellowfin tuna, or a king mackerel? From Orange Beach, you’ll only have a short run in a fast boat to the Continental Shelf and the deep-water rigs to be involved in some serious game fishing. Daily charter boats from Orange Beach leave before first light, heading out to blue water. You can catch plenty of fish on a 1-day trip, but many people choose 2-day trips to have more time fishing. The dolphins of the Gulf Coast come in every color of the rainbow and they are even more amazing to watch while they are flying through t...

The fourth quarter of 2009 showed some very promising signs that the real estate market is on its way to recovery with double-digit gains in some states for existing home sales. Year-over-year sales were higher across the board in 49 states, while all but three states had double-digit annual increases for an overall total 13.9% gain in sales. With many potential beach condo bargains coming up in 2010, along with low mortgage rates and home sales activity picking up, the outlook for Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is looking very good. The driving force behind the surge of home sales was buyers responding strongly to the tax credit combined with record low mortgage interest rates. Mortgage interest rates are expected to rise later this year, but right now conditions are good with steady hom...

Beautiful Orange Beach and Gulf Shores are hot destinations for vacationers - and investors who developed desirable rental condos along the beach.  The area is also a popular place to buy a second home as well as a primary residence.  With the mortgage problems of the last few years, some owners, both investors and homeowners, found themselves at risk of foreclosure.  To avoid this, some have looked to short sale as a way to prevent foreclosure, but the short sale process is long and tedious. Recently, a major national lender has partnered with California-based Equator (formerly known as REOTrans) to begin the very first module for short sales designed to speed up the process.  Although Equator declined to name the lender, the San Francisco Chronicle has reported that Bank of America (B...
