Not sure if it is the quality of Baldwin County going downhill or Mobile schools rising. I think it may be a little of both.
Thank you!

I agree! I mean there aren't to many places in Alabama that have anything comparative,Fairhope is charming and beautiful. That's a reality but there is another reality and that reality is that there are really nice subdivisions in Semmes with houses that run north of $280k.My parents live in one ! SECONDLY not all of Fairhope is charming there are some rundown rural looking areas of Fairhope,Daphne, and Spanishfort.And that's a fact ! Spanishfort has a higher median income than both Dpahne and Fairhope and it does not look like it at all.

Do I like Semmes? No ! And for some of the reasons you mentioned but Semmes does have some nice new subdivisions , good schools, and low crime.

He'll be looking for a house with land or some land (couple of acres if possible) to build on.
This is not available readily in Mobile city limits or much of the Eastern Shore city limits (Spanish Fort, Daphne, Fairhope, Pt. Clear).

This is available in large quantities in the exurbs of both areas which should be under consideration: southwest Mobile county in Mobile county, and east of 181 in Baldwin county. I say these two because they offer the ease of access to Airbus (not so much for E of 181 Baldwin county), both offer large open spaces, and both feel more "country".
