104 Nicole Place
Daphne, Al

There’s just something about golden yellow paint and hardwood floors that bring indoor sunshine to a room. In this 3-bedroom, 2-bath Daphne home, the beauty of wood is captured in both the floor and ceiling of this formal dining room—just one of the many upgrades in this move-in ready jewel. The adjacent dropped living room extends the beauty of the gorgeous oak floors and offers the added detail of an expansive bay window. A wide pass-through from the tiled den into the kitchen creates a welcoming bar for entertaining guests. Black granite counter tops and ebony appliances contrast elegantly with the white kitchen cabinets, while cool gray tile and back-splash pull it all together.

The exterior offers the same attention to beauty and detail as the interior. French doors from the den lead to an intimate back deck and professionally landscaped lawn with a built-in irrigation system. Follow the stone garden path to a screened-in gazebo ideal for grilling or bird watching. This brick home with 2-car garage even includes a home warranty. With a low asking price of only $145,000, a find like this will not last long. HOA dues include wonderful amenities including an outdoor pool, tennis courts, fishing pier, and club house. Call the GulfCoastExperts Team today to view your new home! 251-517-8149

Independence Day!

Flags, fireworks, watermelon, homemade ice cream, that undeniable aroma from the grill that awakens our senses… this is of course the 4th of July! In case your memory needs a refresher on the facts, on July 2, 1776, the Second Continental Congress voted to become independent from Great Britain and the wording of the Declaration of Independence was approved on July 4! The 4th of July of course represents our freedom, patriotism, and love of our county. Wave your flags high and show your pride and support of our county this as this political move was made possible by our military! Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July!

Spring Cleaning Your Home

Spring Cleaning your Home


dusters

It’s that time of year again! Are you in need of a few tips to start Spring Cleaning your Home? Que the  blooming flowers, a nice breeze, the sunshine and I just naturally get the urge to get my home in order. A few new products, perfectly packaged and clean scents of lavendar or lemon seem to help set my mood as well! I do make a  punch list to reference so that I can accomplish all of my chores, then I roll open the windows and relax by that nice breeze, enjoying my Spring Clean Home! My to do list for “spring cleaning” equals a few very specific chores that make me feel like my house is extra-clean. Here are my “spring cleaning” chores.   

 

1) Fridge & Freezer
Take out every single item. Toss expired or almost empty items. Scrub down each shelf and drawer with a mild cleaning solution. Gett any drips, spills or crumbs.

2) Pantry
Take out every item. Toss out anything expired or unwanted. Wipe down the shelves and pantry floor. Re-organize.

3) Clothes Closet
Wash and put away winter sweaters, scarves and jackets. Pull out summery pieces. Take time to sort out any clothes I haven’t worn in a long time and need to donate. Take care of any loose or missing buttons or any other mending.

4) Baseboards, Windows, and Doors
 Scrub down baseboards with a soft cloth and mild cleaning solution. Gently wipe down all of the window sashes and muttons. Clean the windows, inside and out. Scrub down the entry and commonly used doors, wipe down the the knobs.

5) Fireplace, Porches and Garage
Remove any ashes from the fireplace. I like to place a fern in front of the fireplace too. Take everything out of the garage. Sweep the floors, hose if necessary. Reorganize and donate outgrown toys or equipment. Check tools and supplies. Spruce entry ways with potted flowers.

 And that’s it. If those 5 things are done, I feel like I can cross “spring-cleaning” off my list and let out a whoop, whoop! Of course there is the regular cleaning of dusting, vacumming, and mopping but it somehow doesn’t seem to take quite as long when I have already accomplished so much! If you can get the basics done a day or so before your Spring Cleaning, that’s even better. So now equipped with these few tips to start Spring Cleaning your Home, you are ready to get started! Do you have any spring cleaning tips to share with me?

Looking for a home in Fairhope? As recent statistics have shown, now is the time to buy. With little to no change at all in the overall sales price of a home in a 12 month period, this means that we are at the bottom and the market! As homes continue to sell and the appreciation in the home’s value continues to increase, this will eventually sway this market towards a seller’s market.

 

The price a buyer can purchase a property for today; will not be the same in the next 3 months let alone the next 6 months. As interest rates are very low today, they won’t stay that way forever. So if you’ve been holding out for the bottom… congratulations, you’ve gotten there! Now is the time to buy and living on the Eastern Shore is a little bit like living in Utopia! Call the Gulf Coast Experts at 251-656-9673 for information on a property or to schedule a showing appointment.

Fairhope, AL

Fairhope

The quaint community of Fairhope is nestled along Mobile Bay on the Eastern Shore of Baldwin County. Although Fairhope is known for its scenery and gorgeous flowers that the city changes regularly with each season, it also has roots grounded equally deep in the arts as well as the writer’s community. With South Alabama’s moderate climate, this picturesque town is a haven for athletes as one can swim, bike, run, and sail throughout the year. Take a trip to South Mobile Street to watch one of the best sunsets this country has to offer…all jokes aside, it’s better than Key West; and you will see residents young as well as young at heart fishing, walking, biking or taking their last sail through the sunset for the day. Live Oak trees throughout the landscape bring out the kid in you drawing you closer for a climb….or at least the thought of it and the admiration of the opportunity that awaits your child. Fairhope is home to several festivals throughout the year, Arts & Crafts is an annual tradition at the onset of Spring. 

Fairhope clock downtownThe city of Fairhope was created in 1894 by a group of idealists who set out to create a single tax colony. Although not a true single tax community as defined by Henry George, but the original colonists created a close second.They acquired land in the name of the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation (it was called the Fairhope Industrial Association until 1904), then leased the land to those who wanted to use or live on the land. Lessees have a 99 year renewable lease on the land, but have ownership of improvements on the land. Everyone buying a house on Colony land is required to attend a short orientation session, where they are informed that although they own the house, they are only leasing the land. For example mineral rights are reserved for the Single Tax Corporation and owners may not operate a dirt pit.

The quaint community of Fairhope may not be the definition of a true single tax colony but it is a true Utopia and living here makes life a little sweeter each day! If you haven’t had the pleasure yet of visiting Fairhope, please take advantage of staying in one of the fabulous Bed & Breakfast’s, hotels or splurge and relax with the spa package at The Grand Hotel! If you find yourself wanting to make this little piece of Heaven part of your very own and are interested in prime real estateor need help finding that perfect cottage, please call me 251-656-9673.
