Address: 455 East Beach Blvd Gulf Shores, AL. 36542
One of the more majestic looking condo towers on the beach is Lighthouse Condominiums. It's wide stature and contemporary design really make it stand out among its neighbors in Gulf Shores. The building's architectural style is stunning and sets itself apart from every other complex at the beach. One of the things that stand out to me as I ride down the "beach" road is that there are many buildings on the beach that look similar and tend to get lost among each other. Lighthouse real estate is different. Once you learn the name and what the building looks like, you never seem to forget it. Do not pass this option by if you are looking for condos for sale between $400,000 and $500,000. This is one of Gulf Shores' gems that is in a great location and offers a little bit of everything for the picky buyer. Please read further down the page to learn more.

Rental Information and Potential
The majority of the people who own condos at the beach rent out their units for various periods of time. Some use the property as a second home and only rent it out a few days a year to friends and family. Others take a more aggressive approach and try to capitalize on as much rental income as possible. This can be done a couple of different ways. They do so through self-managing through VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner) or by using one of the many rental management companies in town, like Pointe South, Meyer, or Kaiser. Please note that there are on-site rental facilities at this location so bookings or issues can be taken up with them.
Lighthouse is one of the best producing communities on the beach for producing real estate rental income for their owners. In 2014, the highest rental income for a 1 bedroom unit was about $42,921 and the average was around $37,382. The highest rental income last year for a 2 bedroom unit was about $48,653 and the average was $35,944. The highest for a 3 bedroom unit last year was $52,166 and the average was $42,420. The main reason for the difference in the high and average figures is the amount of time that the unit is "available" to rent. Other reasons are usually marketing, paint choices, quality of internet picture, tile vs. carpet, granite counter tops, the view, etc…
