Jackson Mississippi, named after the seventh president of the United States and the most populous in all of Mississippi boasts many MLS listings and homes for sale. In fact the median price for home listings in the Mississippi capital has been climbing steadily and is creating investment opportunities for savvy buyers. This doesn't mean it's unaffordable to the average buyer though; there are plenty of opportunities still to be had.
The next largest city in Mississippi is Gulfport which is located right on the Gulf of Mexico. It encompasses the Biloxi area which is known for housing the US Navy's Atlantic Fleet and the home of the Seabees. Because it sits directly on the coast, it sometimes receives the brunt of hurricanes and tropical depressions, but it also has mild winters and for those that enjoy sub-tropical climates, it's perfect. Homes for sale in this Mississippi city run the gamut, but the affordable areas lie up in North Gulfport. Home listings in that area have been steadily increasing and it's showing major growth. South Gulfport is bit pricier because it sits on the coast with amazing views and waterfront properties. Because of the wealth in this area, you'll also find great schools and community services. Homes are limited there though as no more real growth can occur.
The overall climate of Mississippi is sub-tropical and it can get quite humid. It's a trade-off living on the coast because while you have more moderate temperatures, beautiful views and warm water, you can also be subjected to some extremes in weather. The climate as you move north within the state becomes much hotter and more humid, so there is a definite trade-off to consider when looking for MLS listings in Mississippi.
The overall economy of Mississippi is somewhat depressed and is ranked one of the poorest within the United States. This is due in part to its dependence on growing cotton around the time of the Civil War and a series of natural disasters that occurred in the early 20th century. When the cotton industry declined the state was not able to focus money on developing the economy, instead they were burdened with building levees and cleaning up after the large floods. The building of casinos along the Gulf Coast though has helped substantially with the economy starting around the year 1990, generating as much as $500,000 per day in tax revenue for the state. The state overall does boast the lowest cost of living but this is also tempered by the median income which is also one of the lowest in the country. That said, there are great deals to be had on Mississippi MLS listings if an individual's income is just above the states median income.
