So just when you think everything that has to do with real estate slows down during the winter, we see that 426 homes and condos sold in February in Baldwin County.  Also, this doesn’t include land sales or commercial properties.  For quite some time Baldwin County has been in a slight buyer’s market and that remains the case with this listing to selling price ratio at 96%.  Buyers for the most part are able to get an average of 4% off the asking price.

With nearly 15 closings every day of the month in February, I would say that Baldwin is doing quite well and creating a big draw for home buyers from all over the country.
