ROBERTSDALE, Ala. – Just one year after the pandemic hit our vacation and tourism market hard, the Resort area of Baldwin County has radically recovered.  Baldwin REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service (MLS) reports that April 2021 saw a drastic increase of properties sold in the Resort area of our county at 160.3%, compared to properties sold in April 2020. The Traditional Residential area of the county also saw a 32.4% increase in properties sold. Together, the entire county experienced 826 properties sold in the month of April 2021, compared to just 507 the year prior.
