An insider’s guide to the Mississippi Gulf Coast

Stability, Safety, and Seasonal Real Estate Opportunities

Gulf Coast MS Spring for Mardi Gras

Updated: March 20th, 2024

Early 2024 on the Mississippi Gulf Coast brought a unique home-buying landscape, marked by stable prices, enhanced safety measures for agents, and increased visibility during local festivities.

Springtime Home Buying Analysis

As spring rolls in, buyers across the country are typically caught up in a home-buying rush. However, the Mississippi Gulf Coast may paint a different picture.

Contrary to the 5% price increase forecasted by Business Insider for the national market, our local real estate scene hints at stability (with a chance of prices gently declining). Understanding the distinct characteristics of our coastal market is key, as broad predictions don't always apply here.

Waterfront Open House: Your Next Home or Getaway

Join me for an open house at a practical waterfront property located in Pass Christian, right on Johnsons Bayou. This cozy getaway includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and is perfect for those who appreciate simplicity and waterfront living.

Whether you're in the market for a new home, an investment opportunity, or a serene retreat, this property is worth considering. With its no-nonsense appeal, it could be exactly what you're looking for!

Make a Strong First Impression

When it comes to selling your home, never underestimate the power of a good first impression. Even small, budget-friendly tweaks can make a dramatic difference in how potential buyers perceive your property.

I recently convinced a client to hold off on listing a home until we could complete some minor cosmetic updates. This strategic pause ensures the property looks its best, aiming to captivate buyers from the get-go.

Tools for Enhancing Agent Safety

In a proactive move to boost real estate agent safety, the Gulf Coast Association of Realtors has introduced Forewarn. This potential life-saving service empowers agents to check the criminal backgrounds of potential clients using just their phone numbers.

This is a meaningful step toward ensuring agent safety, especially for females who frequently face risks when meeting new clients. Thank you, GCAR and Forewarn!

Mardi Gras Boosts Property Views

Mardi Gras is ending, but it's brought a noticeable bump in property tours along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Why? All the extra people around mean more eyeballs looking at available properties.

Here's a pro tip for home sellers in Mississippi: When practical, align your property listing date with big local events like Mardi Gras or Cruisin' the Coast. This strategy can help your property land on the MLS 'Hot Sheet,' catching the attention of more potential buyers while foot traffic is at its peak.

Client Appreciation

Huge shoutout to my amazing clients! Together, we've rocked January, landing me in the prestigious second spot on our office leaderboard. Your trust and partnership are the real MVPs here.

Thank you, thank you!
