gulfport real estate: Foreclosures on the Mississippi Gulf Coast - 09/23/11 05:26 AM
WEll I looked at our local MS Gulf Coast MLS system this morning.  I wanted to see how many of our homes for sale
were listed as 3rd party/bank owned (Mostly foreclosures).  The number of properties that stated they were 3rd party/bank owned for the coast was 360.   The total number of properties for sale was 9892.  That's a small percentage of foreclosed properties to properties for sale. It works out to 3.64% of properties that are 3rd party/bank owned to ALL proprties for sale.
But, there is another satistic to consider.   When I took a look at the number of … (0 comments)

gulfport real estate: Mississippi Gulf Coast Housing Stats for Nov 2010 - 12/06/10 06:55 AM
Hi Everyone!
Well here are the stats for Single Family homes sold on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for the month of November.
November 2010 number sold  210
Average Price  was             $114,572
Median Price was               $110,000

This compares to October of 2010 with 210 sold (Revised)

 I expect that November's sales will be revise slightly higher in a few weeks. This is because, not all agents report their closings in a timely manner. Last month the October record showed 195 closings  on Nov4th. It has now been revised. So our report as of Dec 6th … (0 comments)

So, I am reminding myself, and some of you that today is really very special … (2 comments)

gulfport real estate: Foreclosure Lists - 10/25/10 06:12 AM
My company Gulf Coast Realty offers Free Foreclosure lists to anyone that asks.  We offer a Free Home Buyer's Seminar too.  But, to really take advantage of the Foreclosures, I find that you have to be right on top of them.  The really good foreclosures that come on the market, aren't still available by the time the weekend comes.   I tell my clients, if they see something good, chances are, 20 other people are thinking the same thing.
The best thing to do, is to be on our email list that notifies you as soon as a property comes on … (0 comments)
