Mobile is a great place to live, and it’s also a great place to buy a house.
In the third quarter of 2016, the median cost of a home purchased in Mobile County was $135,400, well below the national median of $240,900.
Overall, Mobile also has a much lower cost of living than most cities its size, and is among the 20 lowest out of 80 mid-size U.S. metropolitan areas according to the Council for Community and Economic Research survey.
When it comes to housing options, Mobile has it all in a range of affordable prices – downtown living, rural solitude, historic neighborhoods, modern subdivisions, waterfront homes and suburban apartment complexes.
There is a selection of existing houses in Mobile’s downtown and midtown neighborhoods, in seven historic residential districts, ranging from mansions to Victorian cottages. Farther away from the central business district, suburban neighborhoods offer the options of rolling hills or quiet cul de sacs.
New houses also are available both in town and in the suburbs. New subdivisions, with a variety of house plans, are under development throughout the area, and new housing options downtown can put you a short walk from the central business district.
