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 walls between each condo unit was used.  Its sound concrete exterior is designed to withstand wind speeds of 200+ mph - a dire necessity in the event of hurricanes and strong tropical storms.  Furthermore, Phoenix was one of the first condominiums to offer resort-like amenities catering to visitors of all ages and appealing to thousands of families looking for a kid-friendly vacation destination.  The condominium's generous amenity package includes a large beachfront pool surrounded by a spacious sundeck & gazebo, an indoor heated pool, hot tubs, sauna, gym, indoor racquetball courts & lighted tennis courts.  These desired features helped boost the Phoenix condos as a top contender for buyers and investors, as well as, vacationing families from all across the U.S.

As of today, they are 20 Phoenix condo developments in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.  

The Phoenix condominiums continue to live up to their legacy as a forefront developer on the Alabama coastline.  Their latest beachfront condo projects, Phoenix Orange Beach and Phoenix Gulf Shores, have already proven successful in today's market with the majority of pre-sale units already purchased.  (Visit our pre-construction condos page to discover other developments coming down the pipeline for the Gulf Coast region.)  The wheel seems to keep spinning and the latest development, Phoenix Orange Beach II, is planned for the East Orange Beach area - next to Tidewater and close to Perdido Pass.  The condos in Phoenix Orange Beach II are selling now and sure to be, yet another successful project added to their resume.

Phoenix condos are some of the most popular condos on Alabama's beaches and have withstood the test of time.  Families continue to rely on these beautiful, well-maintained condos for memorable vacations coming back year after year - often to stay in the same unit.  Many buyers are surprised at the ease of owning a beach front condo, especially those like the Phoenix buildings that generate great rental revenues.  With proper setup, these condos are perfectly capable of cash-flowing and we help our clients to maximize their incomes by using this and our other websites to bolster rental traffic / revenues.  Because sites like VRBO have changed so much in recent years and now list almost every rental unit in a building, traffic has gotten diluted making it increasingly important for owners to use multiple outlets to market their vacation rentals.  A few years back, VRBO was all that was needed to keep a condominium booked, but now, with most all of the available units listed, owners are looking for supplemental help.  This is something we're naturally setup to help with. is the #1 condo sales site for the Alabama Gulf Coast.  Don't let the "sales" be misleading.  Vacationers frequently use real estate websites to shop for condos because they often provide much more detailed info.  Our site for example offers aerial videos for many of the condos on the Alabama Gulf Coast along with amenity lists, helpful links and detailed info.  We use our primary website along with our Facebook condo pages (one for each condo) and our individual condo websites to direct rental traffic to our owner's landing pages - with availability and rates.  This helpful program is free to our clients and has shown to improve net rental revenues by an average of approximately 10%.  While 10% may not sound like much, over the course of a year and factoring in revenues of $30,000 to $40,000, it adds between $3,000 to $4,000 for the previous examples, takes us all of 10 minutes to set up and costs nothing to our clients.  Please read more on our supplemental efforts if you're considering investing in a condo on the Alabama Gulf Coast or Northwest Florida Gulf Coast.
