Baldwin County's October 2023 Housing Report


ROBERTSDALE, Ala. – The Baldwin County housing market saw annual sales growth this past month. According to Baldwin REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service (MLS) statistics, October 2023 saw a $16.5-million increase in total dollar amount of properties sold, in a year-over-year comparison with October 2022. This is largely due to the incremental increases in Average Sales Price in both the Traditional Residential and Resort/Island-based markets of Baldwin County. These price increases helped to offset the loss of 11 property closings from October 2022 to October 2023. The Resort area of Baldwin County (which includes all of Orange Beach and Fort Morgan, plus everything in Gulf Shores that is South of AL-180) reported an average sales price for last month at$709,683 – a 8.5% increase from the previous year.
