MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. — The real estate market in Mobile County has demonstrated resilience and growth in 2023, as shown by data from the Gulf Coast Multiple Listing Service compared to 2022.

One of the most notable improvements is seen in the median days on the market, which has significantly decreased to 20 days in 2023, compared to 34 days in 2022.

Despite a marginal decrease in the number of sold listings, the total dollar volume for real estate transactions in Mobile County for 2023 stands at an impressive $1.2 billion. Although slightly lower than the $1.4 billion recorded in 2022, this figure underscores the significant financial impact of the real estate sector on the local economy.
