Phoenix West – 23972 Perdido Beach Blvd Orange Beach, AL 36561

Phoenix West II – 23450 Perdido Beach Blvd Orange Beach, AL 36561

Phoenix West II, on the outside, seems to get a lot more attention regarding sales and rental revenue than its predecessor Phoenix West. So I thought I would lay out the facts between the two, giving those who are looking to purchase a high quality condo in Orange Beach an objective advantage.

Is it hype?

Is it because Phoenix West II is newer or better priced?

Are the amenities better?

Appearance

Phoenix West

Phoenix West II

From the standpoint of curb appeal, they both look grandiose and majestic, but Phoenix West II is obviously larger which is actually a fact. Phoenix West II is the largest residential building in the state of Alabama with 358 condos.

The Southern View

Because the two buildings are beachfront and only 0.6 miles away from each other, the southern view of the beautiful Gulf is nearly the same.


So, What are the Differences and Similarities between Phoenix West and Phoenix West II?

………than Phoenix West

Now, we all know that individual owners will decorate and update their own units to their own liking. We also know that some of us are better at it than others.

What makes me curious is to why prices of one building exceed another in a given period of time when they are extremely close in location, size, amenities, and NAME.

I’ll update this page every few months regarding the numbers below but for now:

In the past 6 months, there were 4 condos that sold in Phoenix West at an average sales price of $731,875 and at $348 per foot.

On the other hand in the same time period, 14 condos were sold in Phoenix West II at an average sales price of $785,535 and at $371 per foot.

I enjoy diving into the numbers in our real estate market. Contact me if you have questions about the Orange Beach condo real estate market or if you need more information about the condos that are for sale in Phoenix West or Phoenix West II.
