Baldwin County's March 2023 Housing Report


ROBERTSDALE, Ala. – The Baldwin County real estate market continued the path to stability last month. Baldwin REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service (MLS) provides monthly reports of year-over-year local real estate trends, but it is important to note the anomaly years of 2021 & 2022, when markets across the country were in a heated rebound following the pandemic. The rush to buy and sell property in those years was historic and will likely not be seen again anytime soon.


The current real estate market, as seen this past month, positions both buyers and sellers on a more even playing field. Housing supply continues to be low on a national scale, so the demand continues to drive up sales prices. However, buyers have the opportunity now to consider the investment as properties are not selling as quickly.


For March 2023, the Resort area of Baldwin County (all of Orange Beach, Fort Morgan, and anything in Gulf Shores south of Canal Rd/180) reported increases in Average Sales Price and Average Days on Market. Average sales price saw a 10.1% increase from March 2022, resulting in an average of $729,064. Listings spent more time on the on market at an average of 82 days, compared to just 38 days the year prior. A decrease was reported in Total Closed Sales as 478 properties solid in March 2023, compared to 641 in March 2022.


Baldwin County’s Traditional Residential area (everything else in Baldwin County not included in the Resort market areas) also saw the same increases and decrease this past month. Average sales price experienced a 3.5% increase from March 2022 at $382,993. Properties stayed on market longer with an average of 56 days, which is 23 more days than the average a year ago.
