Unfortunately, if you are refinancing or purchasing a home by obtaining a mortgage loan through a lender, your home appraisal fee will probably be $350-$500 depending on lender internal requirements as well as their choice of an Appraisal Management Company (AMC); since 21 July 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act created significant financial regulation over mortgage lenders and has also been more detrimental to the consumer in regards to more documentation and higher costs. The mortgage lending red tape has harmed good real estate appraisers trying to adhere to all of the numerous and onerous new regulations for appraisal opinion reporting. The government’s creation of more and more red tape for mortgage lenders has not been helpful but a direct detriment to consumers, home appraisers and the real estate industry as a whole.

The coastal properties in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas will be affected by this catastrophic oil spill for years to come. As of today, now 47 days and still counting, BP Oil has been ineffective in successfully stopping the flow of oil. Therefore, our Gulf Coast is faced with environmental devastation, loss of marine life and wildlife, further property devaluation (not that inept governmental and political faux pas were enough to damage), illusion of an economic recovery, businesses closing, and loss of livelihoods for longtime residents.
As a person who has lived in the Mobile Bay Metro Area (Baldwin County and Mobile County of Alabama) the majority of my life, this massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico conjures up so many emotions and thoughts inside me and, many unkind words (please forgive) towards all who have dragged this on for much too long. Also, the lack of expedience and nondisclosures which could be labeled lies has certainly not helped to comfort Gulf Coast residents. It is quite evident that many Gulf Coast residents do not believe BP Oil and the government have properly handled this oil spill catastrophe.
Anyway, this oil spill catastrophe will apparently be with us for many months and years to come. Our Gulf Coast area will never be the same and will definitely affect the United States as a whole and potentially have International negative implications. Also, unfortunately, coastal properties more than likely will be faced with further decline in value; not that government intrusions and regulations as well as poor and restrictive lending practices have already been enough to damage our property values and the real estate industry as a whole.
So, how will the coastal real estate marketability be affected within the Gulf Coast states? Whether true or not, the stigma of an oil spill catastrophe will, in my opinion, have a potential affect on the marketability of properties along the Gulf Coast. How much of an affect is still an unknown? The future selling of coastal properties should begin to hold the answers to these questions. So, “time will tell.”
Is your coastal property rich in oil? If so, it’s certainly not the way you want to discover oil on your property. Contact a professional you trust and get sound advice when the stigma of oil has knocked on your door. There are many good Certified Real Estate Appraisers and Attorneys in the Gulf Coast states. It is always important to understand the affects of this oil spill upon our coastal properties.

On the 20th April, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig, operating off the coast of Louisiana, had a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. This oil spill resulted in a blowout leading to an explosion. At this point in time, Gulf Coast residents were not fully aware of its severity but very concerned about their future.
Now, we’re twenty-eight (28) days and counting down to a potentially life changing event for Alabamians. We are all wondering about our beautiful Alabama beaches, our coastal waters, our wildlife and our livelihood. How severe will this oil spill affect our lives in Alabama? Are we counting down to an impending threat to the Alabama coastline? Will it be a disaster negatively affecting the Alabama coastline for decades to come? How will Alabama coastal properties be affected by this catastrophe? Will the marketability of coastal Alabama real estate be affected and labeled with the stigma as “oil spill property,” whether true or false? Will your property be worth more or less after the oil spill reaches the shores of Alabama? I think you already know the answer for many of these questions.
If your coastal real estate becomes affected from this oil spill, contact a qualified attorney for advice and remember Cheney Appraisal Services, Albert M. Cheney, (251) 533-2424, as your Certified Residential Appraiser.

The neighborhood name Spring Hill was originally an early 19th century Spanish land grant settlement. Spring Hill is one of Mobile, Alabama’s oldest neighborhoods. Over 150 years ago, Spring Hill gained its prominence when Mobilians built summer homes to seek refuge from the semi-tropical heat of the city and the Yellow Fever epidemic carried by mosquitoes.
Spring Hill has a sense of community with good neighbors and wonderful neighborhoods with antebellum and majestic oaks covering many of the streets, such as, The Cedars, Dilston Lane, Tuthill Lane and Wimbledon Drive. Spring Hill is also an active area with many individuals and groups of friends cycling, jogging, walking and expressing their patronage for the local businesses along McGregor Avenue and Old Shell Road as well as other adjoining streets.
The Country Club of Mobile is located in Spring Hill and provides its members with fine Southern dining, swimming pool, tennis courts, 18-hole golf course and a short 9-hole course. In nearby Langan Municipal Park, Mobilians and its visitors can enjoy the various lake views, walking paths and the wonderful lakefront Mobile Museum of Arts which maintains a fine permanent collection as well as hosting prestigious temporary exhibitions throughout each year. And, just minutes west from the museum, you can enjoy the Azalea City Golf Course ($16 to $39 depending on time of day, cart or walking), the Botanical Gardens and the Mobile Tennis Center, one of the largest of its kind in the United States. Since 1930, Spring Hill College, the oldest school of higher learning in Alabama, has been serving the Mobile Bay Metro Area with a beautiful 18-hole golf course (available without membership) from $32 to $39 each, depending on mornings and afternoons, includes a cart, or Mondays and Wednesdays which also includes a lunch.
Spring Hill‘s retail area includes an active branch of the public library, dentists, doctors, grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, women’s & children’s clothing stores, and other professional services. Mary B. Austin, one of Mobile’s oldest public elementary schools, is located along Provident Lane, north side of Old Shell Road. St. Paul’s Episcopal and St. Ignatius schools located nearby provide parochial private education.
Springhill Memorial Hospital, physician’s offices and a fitness center are located along the south side of Dauphin Street, near Interstate U. S. Highway 65, and across from many restaurant facilities and retail shops, such as, Alabama Outdoors, Ann Taylor Loft, Atlanta Bread Company, Ballins, Claude Moore, Coldwater Creek, J. Jill, Jimmy Johns, Jos. A. Bank, Legacy Village at Spring Hill, Metzger’s, Talbots, The Wine Loft, Tropical Smoothie Café, True Restaurant and Zoe’s Kitchen.
In a tough economic climate, the property values within Spring Hill have done better than most other areas in the city of Mobile due to its desirability. With this stated, individuals and families can find many choices for housing, from a small condominium to a spacious home on a large lot. Currently, there are approximately 231 active listings from $44,850 to $3,300,000 asking prices. Recent housing sales, about 70 sold records, for the past six months ranges from $37,500 for a one bedroom, one bath condo to $950,000 for an over 6,000 square foot home with 4 bedrooms and four bathrooms near the Country Club of Mobile. Therefore, Spring Hill has housing price offerings to fit any budget!

“When Mobile’s Saenger Theatre opened on January 19, 1927, it was the sixty-first Saenger theatre of a chain founded by J.H. and A.D. Saenger of New Orleans. There were Saenger Theatres located throughout the South as well as in Cuba and Puerto Rico. Hailed as, “Alabama’s Greatest Showplace” and, “the most beautiful playhouse in all of Dixie,” the Mobile Saenger Theatre took a year to construct at a cost of about 500,000 dollars. Designed by renowned architect, Emile Weil …”
“The Saenger Theatre of Mobile now functions as a performing arts center and is the official home of the Mobile Symphony Orchestra. The Saenger features an annual Summer Movie Series and presents numerous concerts, lectures and special events. The Saenger Theatre is a historic landmark, dear to the hearts of Mobilians for its architectural grandeur and ties to our cultural history as well as for the extraordinary caliber of entertainment it offers our community today.”
