Firethorne Real Estate Market Update for June 2019

The real estate market in Fairhope is strong and Firethorne is one of its star neighborhoods.  Firethorne is located right in the middle of Fairhope in a more rural section of the city, however, you are still a quick drive to everything that you need.

The very first home in this lovely neighborhood was constructed just a few years ago but there has been a lot of growth and much more to come.  When the subdivision is complete there will be 247 homes spread out over 132 acres of prime Fairhope land.

Yes, there are 21 homes that are currently on the market in Firethorne but this neighborhood is fairly large already and in demand.  The largest home offers 3,172 square feet and is priced at $479,000.  The smallest home is for sale at $279,000 and has 2,355 square feet.

The amount of time that these homes have been on the market is largely due to the fact that these homes are new construction for the most part.  They have to be built.
