Phoenix Condos on the Alabama Gulf Coast

If you are an Alabama native or from the Gulf Coast area then you have most likely heard of the “Phoenix Condos".  This popular succession of beachfront developments have dominated the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach skylines for over 30 years.  Phoenix's first condo complex, Phoenix I, was built in the mid-1980s during a period when the Alabama coast was experiencing a major boom in condominium construction.  Throughout the decade, these condominiums were primarily low-rise (2- and 3-stories) and wooden-framed buildings.  Phoenix I made a significant impact in the condo market with its advanced method of construction: poured-in-place concrete on a steel infrastructure with solid concrete petition

I was out gathering video of a new listing the other day - a small lot on West Beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  I was approached by someone who had left work to come speak with me.  I first noticed him from about 70 yards away.  He was walking in my direction and by 30 yards, he was definitely coming to talk with me.  After reaching me, the first thing said was - "the latest invasion of our privacy, right there!".  This hasn't been uncommon since I bought a drone and I've been approached with animosity before.

While I'm often inclined to say as little as possible, especially when the initial contact offers a tone of contempt and aggravation, this time I decided to try and share some insight.  I simply replied to the man, "Let me show you something".  I

Be careful of FREE tools

This is intended for webmasters and real estate website owners

Webmaster logo for RealtorsWhen Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia and other large real estate portals advertise "free" tools, there's a cost - a very big one.  While there may not be a place to enter your credit card number or a request for your billing address, these sites didn't reach the top of Google's search results by accident.  Although they're good sites, full of information and easy-to-use software with huge marketing budgets, their most effective marketing tactic isn't something they discuss.  In fact, unless you've read the fine print within their terms and conditions, you've probably never heard of how they take advantage of unsuspecting professionals.
