Al Eastern Shore Real Estate: Welcome to Fairhope

Al Eastern Shore Real Estate: Welcome to Fairhope

Description to follow will allow you to take a driving tour through the Eastern Shore. Please remember this is a partial list but we want to share our natural beauty with you.

Founded in 1894 by a group of idealists from Iowa seeking a Utopian quality of life focused on common ownership of the land, Fairhope has evolved rapidly into one of the main centers of the Eastern Shore’s commercial and cultural activity. Its founders believed that their progressive project had “fair hope” of coming to fruition and indeed the city’s prominence in the area may well be due in part to its heritage of fortitude and perseverance.

Bright flowers, brick walkways, downtown galleries and shops all add to the small town charm of this beautiful city. The public pier with its rose garden, beach area, and duck pond is the hub for most of the year. Activities from sailing to sunbathing can almost always be viewed from anywhere along the bluffs and waterfront in Fairhope. Even a potential “Jubilee” can be spotted, under rare conditions of course, in the summer. There is a wide variety of public and private schools as well as two colleges located in Fairhope.

Residential areas run along the bay, wrap around the downtown area, and branch out further from town in a more country setting. From small garden homes to huge estate homes, with bay views or with lush gardens, it is all available in Fairhope.

Fairhope has the quaintness and the atmosphere to allow you to stroll through Downtown. Downtown is locally called Fruit and Nut District and The Bluff Area, which both are walking distance to town and the Bay.

AL Eastern Shore Real Estate: Your Tax Dollars At Work

There’s been a lot in the news recently about the government takeover of government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. But what does that mean for the AL Eastern Shore real estate market?

These agencies guarantee more than 40 percent of the nation’s mortgages and own or guarantee more than $5 trillion worth of mortgages, so assuring their continued operation is crucial in the current economic environment. 

The government’s actions aimed to restore confidence and bring stability and continued liquidity to the nation’s mortgage market. Interest rates came down immediately after the takeover, and it’s likely that this will keep them low for some time to come. 

Buyers benefit from lower rates, and sellers benefit from the increased demand created by buyers entering the market.
