Gulf Shores real estate is a prime investment in one of three “seaside resorts” on the Gulf of Mexico in the state of Alabama. Two, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, are on the Eastern shore of Alabama’s Fort Morgan peninsula. The third, the Island of Dauphin, is only a few miles from the Western edge of the peninsula.

Not corporated Ft. Morgan and the cities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach stretche from west to east and the Gulf beach run for about 30 miles from Ft. Morgan to Perdido Pass. Rt. 182 connects by bridge over Perdido Pass to Perdido Key and continues to the Florida state line. Jack Edwards Airport located on the north side of Gulf Shores provides air access to Gulf Shores and the Ft. Morgan peninsula.

Famous for its quartz “sugar white” sand that is powdery and feels good to the feet and the emerald green tint of the Gulf of Mexico beaches, the Alabama Gulf Coast area is worldwidely known as a vacation hotspot. Gulf Shores and the surrounding area provide a way to enjoy the beauty of the Gulf and its natural surroundings in a family-oriented atmosphere. If you have experienced such a vacation or just visited, the next step that comes to mind is the possibility of property ownership.

Gulf Shores real estate includes condominiums and homes offering a wide variety of alternative for investment in rental property and/or a second home, relocating the family, or retirement. Many residential choices are located near golf courses, parks, bike trails, and other recreational facilities. Waterfront alternatives exist not only alongside the Gulf of Mexico, but on Bon Secour Bay on the northern side of the peninsula as well.

Gulf Shores homes for sale and lots are available covering a broad range of prices from quite affordable to medium priced and luxurious resort homes. Prices increase with size and amenities, from beachfront to beach view or easy/deeded beach access. Gulf Shores Realtors/Developers can provide lots for new construction options and a large choice of local builders provide a choice of floor plans or a custom home.

Condominiums are available in a similar broad price range but with generally lower overall prices, numerous duplexes, and other attached “units” are available at generally half the cost per sq ft. of a single family home. Gulf Shores Realtors are available via the internet or visit in person if you happened to be in the area on vacation or a weekend drive.
