Yeah.......what does the spreadsheet say about that?- Inquiring minds want to know.
My brother sold his home here in Mobile and moved to Gulf Shores- bought a nice condo. He likes it -EXCEPT..... in summer there are so many tourists that one can not get around town easily, and in winter time there are so many snow birds one can not find a parking place at any of the good restaurants (hah)!
Even spots that seem to look good will have their downsides.
Edit: North Alabama looks good to me- out from Huntsville maybe? ......away from the big cities. Some of those counties have almost no crime. And, good roads in and out should you decide to go somewhere.
