Foley welcome center

For the last several years Foley has been going through an explosion in growth but yet home prices are still some of the lowest in Baldwin County.  The reasons for the growth may be due its proximity to the Gulf beaches but the fact remains, homes are being purchased by the droves.  

To give you an idea, take a look at the real estate data from the last Fall season (Sept 1st to Nov 30).  Overall, there were 185 homes that sold in Foley producing real estate revenue of nearly $36,000,000.  Wow!  That’s over 2 closings per day, every day of the week.  The average selling price was $193,012 with an average of 87 days on the market.
