About Covington County, Alabama


Covington County is a county located in Lower Alabama. The County was established on December 17, 1821. The Alabama state legislature changed the name to Jones County on August 6, 1868. Two months later on October 10, 1868, the original name was restored.


Covington County, as of the 2020 census, has over 37,500 people.

Destin, FL home
Destin, Florida house

I had a rental in Destin, FL that was trashed by renters. Rather than put in the money and time to fix it up, I reached out to David at Purple Egg Real Estate. David was professional and courteous and a true pleasure to work with.

I was done with being a landlord. David was straightforward and kept his word, and we closed on the date I chose. Additionally, they paid all the closing costs and bought the house as-is without repairs or clean-up.
