Any areas recommended by your guys that I can rule out due to size of the land? Thanks!



Hmmmm nice size house with little land ?

I would recomend the Springhill Avenue area ( near Springhill University and Univerity of South Alabama )as well.

Good luck and Welcome to Mobile !!!

But Bama, wouldn't those houses be older? The OP is looking for newer homes.


Ivy, I have friends in Holly Springs and I have traveled 78 into Memphis quiet a few times. I didn't see anything up there that would make me want to stay there. LOL

I don't blame you Sothern. I don't care most areas along highway myself, but I acutally love it here in Memphis. We are moving because of my husband's job. I guess no matter where you stay, you just have to find an area you feel comfortable with, explore, then you get used to.

Heading east from I-65 on Airport Blvd., if you turn right at the Florida ST. intersection in the area of Rosswood and Brookwood, there are some very nice patio homes if you stay on that road to the end, which I think becomes Grant Street. Some might be available to rent. I couldn't find any information on it internet-wise.

There is also Summerville Court, adjacent to the very nice Ashland Place historic neighborhood, on corner of Upham andSpring Hill Avenue, in Midtown. There are probably opportunities to rent there. They are condos for sale. Summerville court Luxury Condominiums Homes (http://www.dauphinrealty.com/SummervilleCourt/ - broken link)

This is a nice area and could be a great location for you. Ideally, you would buy a home because I think you will see some appreciation, depending upon the area, in the 2 years you will be here. Areas with most appreciation in Mobile are not West Mobile; it's Spring Hill, then Midtown following that. That's why people keep recommending Spring Hill. It's great advice.

Mobile seems to be behind in the real estate bubble. Since we have a lot of industry locating here soon- EADS, Thyssen-Krupp, etc. ...., we should see an upward creep to home prices because of that.
