Spanish Fort Estates has always remained popular year after year. I believe this mainly has to do with the fact that the neighborhood is heavily wooded and price.
This neighborhood is large and all of the homes appear to be different from each other. You will definitely not get the feeling that this is a "cookie cutter" community. There is a vast difference in style, size, and price among the homes here.
We like to think of Spanish Fort Estates as an established neighborhood since some of the homes were built in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. However, you can still find properties that were constructed within the past 5 years. Because many of the homes are older, you will find a lower price per foot here. With that being said, it's obvious that buyers are attracted here with the high numbers of closings that we see year after year.
For the homes that sold this year, the average sales price was $337,503 with a price per foot of $125.
Spanish Fort Estates is located on the west side of Spanish Fort and some of the neighborhood even backs up to the water. Residents of these homes will enjoy cliff height views of Mobile Bay and the Delta, along with incredible sunsets. This community is very convenient to the Causeway where you will have the option to enjoy a number of seafood restaurants. You would also be close to I-10 if you commute to Mobile or have a need to drive over to Pensacola. Shopping is just a couple of miles away as well that includes a Bass Pro Shop, Hobby Lobby, and Home Depot.

I'm a little partial to Highland Park because this is where I live. I absolutely love it here, mainly because the neighborhood is very quiet and surrounded by forest. I also like the style of homes in Highland Park, which give off of vibe of a French Creole style.
This community only has a total of 120 homes and it made this list mainly due to new construction. Once people buy here, not too many want to leave. However, I would encourage you to check just in case when you're ready to purchase. Highland Park is just a few years old and all of the new construction was completed recently.
For the 25 homes that closed this year, the average sales price was $404,835 with an average price per foot of $139.
You'll find tall ceilings, open floor plans, brick exteriors, tankless water heaters, and much more. The size of these homes range from 2,200 to 3,500 square feet.
Spanish Fort schools are just down the road on Jimmy Falkner and a ton of shopping and restaurants are just several miles away.
