So just when you think we would see a drastic decline in real estate sales during Covid 19, there are 883 homes and condos that close in the month of June.  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 30 closings every day of the month in June, I would say that Baldwin is doing quite well and creating a big draw for home buyers from all over the country.
