Tips for Holiday Decorating on a Budget

The holidays are approaching. Today, we thought we'd do something a little different and share this festive video on holiday decorating tips from HGTV. Designer Angelo Surmelis shares several great ideas to spread holiday cheer throughout the home. Here are some of our favorites.

  1. Pay attention to the mantle. If you don't have some already, buy some kind of garland to drape over the mantle. Next, use leftover ornaments and candles to add light and texture. When choosing ornaments and candles, ensure they are in the same color-palette. This helps make your mantle a great focal point!
  2. Use smaller Christmas trees. Every house has their main Christmas tree. In addition, you can also purchase smaller, inexpensive, eco-friendly trees to place throughout the home. Decorate these trees with strips of fabric from a T-shirt in holiday colors to save money for the main tree.
  3. Use what you have. Be resourceful. Adding a plate charge and place mat to your everyday dining set adds some jazz to your table. Fresh-cut flowers and candles will help finish the look. You don't need grand, expensive candles -- a little candlelight goes a long way!

As you can see, it doesn't take much to make your home feel more festive. If you have any questions, give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to help you!

Don't Miss Out on these Condominiums in Gulf Shores

White Caps is another hot condominium complex. This sits on the Gulf Coast and offers amazing views while also being located nearby shops and restaurants. These range in price from $370K to $445K.

Phoenix East has also been getting a lot of attention lately. This may be because of the extraordinary views of Perdido Pass and the Gulf of Mexico.

Three of the Hottest Condo Units in Gulf Shores

Today I'd like to speak about condo sales, and I'd specifically like to focus on the areas where we're seeing a lot of people buying condos.

One of the hottest places for condos right now is Sanibel, which is an 18-story complex that is located on the North side of West Beach Boulevard. The unit was built in 2006 and offers panoramic views from its floor-to-ceiling glass windows. There is an outdoor hot tub and pool, and also an area for outdoor events like barbecues. These units all range in price from $279K to $349K.

Another great condo complex is Crystal Shores West, which offers 2, 3, and 4 bedroom condos with equally amazing views of the Gulf. This is a beachfront property that is located next to shopping outlets, grocery stores, and restaurants. These units range in price from $349K to $850K.

Lastly, The Beach Club consists of four high-rise complexes at Fort Morgan. This is a great option for people who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and make a short drive to the beach. These come with all the same amenities as Crystal Shores and the Sanibel. The units range in price from $279K to $799K.

These three units are what I would recommend over many others. If you're looking to purchase a condo, please don't hesitate to contact me. If you don't think these three will suit your needs, I can recommend many others to you.

Gulf Shores Real Estate Market Update

Today I'd like to provide you with a clearer picture of our local market in order to help you whether you're buying or selling.

There are currently 2,081 active listings and 565 current properties pending. There were also 861 properties that came off the market last month, and this means that they either expired or were withdrawn from sale.

In the last six months, 1,895 homes have been sold. However, the current level of inventory should keep the market relatively stable.

Interest rates are still incredibly low, from 3.1% to 4.25%, and this should draw a lot of buyers into the market who have been waiting to purchase an affordable home.

Buyers should know that they will still have to pay close to 97% of the asking price on homes despite the high level of affordability. If you want to buy for 80 cents on the dollar, it's just not likely to happen.

Hopefully this information has been helpful to you. If you would like to learn more about the Alabama Gulf Shore market, please don't hesitate to contact me!
