Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!

 

HAPPY MARDI GRAS!!!

The carnival season is upon us once more. The bead throwing has started and the food of choice is, of course, the King Cake! Or my personal favorite, the Moonpie! I am not a born Mobilian, so Mardi Gras is not in my blood. However, it is very easy to be taken in by all the festivities. Parades and formal balls are a definite must do if you are in this area. Don't worry that it's already started... we carry on the party for nearly two full weeks. Check out the parade schedule here  http://www.mobile.org/things-to-do/special-events/mardi-gras/

My best advice for making your parade experience an excellent one, get there early and don't park in a tow away zone. The city takes parking seriously. They've had enough experience with this to know where you should and should not park. Trust me, your car will be towed if you park where you are not supposed to! Oh and bring a bag to put all your goodies in. If you get a good spot, you will need it. You can thank me later!

Enjoy your Mardi Gras! Stay safe and have fun!!!

No One Buys in December

I hear this every year, no one buys or sells their home in the winter season. Well, I say, you are wrong. The busiest time for me has always been November to December. This year is no exception. Even my husband and I purchased our home 12 years ago in the Fall time. We closed in November, just before Thanksgiving. Every year I listen to clients tell me how they really want that new place to call home for the holidays. It’s awesome! Most days we are content to sit where we are and do nothing. But the holiday seems to bring everyone out of their shells. “Home” means so much more this time of year.

Now sure, if you are close to the beach or Dauphin Island, then you will see a surge in business in the spring and summer. That is what the summer means to a lot of people, getting close to the beach or water for some fun. I consider the waterfront area to be more of a specialty type of real estate. Generally speaking, the gulf views and white sand are not primary residences. They tend to be more for investment and leisure purposes. Therefore, these properties will be popular during the season that they can be used most.

But “home” will be popular almost any time of year. Now a days, home is much more of a need than a want. When we need more space for the growing family or need less space for the empty nesters, it really doesn’t matter what time of year it is. We will sell and/or buy when we “need” it. That includes the fall and winter times. 

I mentioned to someone recently that I am always busy around the holidays. The comment I received back was that maybe it’s just the agents that slow down and not the market. Well, that could be it too. It’s hard to keep up the pace during the holidays when we should be cleaning out, decorating, and celebrating with family. So much of the Realtors work is outside, showing houses and looking at homes in order to list them. Not the best office when it’s cold. I must admit that I am not a fan of cold weather. It is possible that I was meant to be a bear and hibernate! 

So, please don’t let the weather put a damper on your home needs. If you feel it is time to move, well then, move. I can’t guarantee that you will sell your home in December or that you will fall in love with your dream castle in December. But I can say that the market is always moving and you can be too.

Call us today, here at Infinity South Realty.

I sell houses!

Real Estate For Sale on Dauphin Island

 

Dauphin Island is a town in Mobile County, Alabama on a barrier island of the same name (split by the Katrina Cut), at the Gulf of Mexico. It incorporated in 1988 and the town is included in the Mobile metropolitan statistical area. The island (originally named "Massacre Island") was renamed for Louis XIV's great-grandson and heir, the Dauphin. The name of the island is often mistaken as "Dolphin Island"; dauphin is "dolphin" in the French language.

The Gulf of Mexico is to the south of Dauphin Island, the Mississippi Sound and Mobile Bay are to the north. The island's eastern end helps define the mouth of Mobile Bay. The eastern, wider portion of the island is shaded by thick stands of pine trees, but the narrow, western part of the island features scrub growth and few trees.

There are Residential Homes For Sale, Condos and Land available now. Gulf View, Waterfront homes, Luxury Beach side Condos. The Island has a lot more to offer for the whole family.
