The best place to look would be in Ocean Springs, in the Ocean Beach Estates area. There are plenty of homes in nice area near to the new High School for that price. I have one listed myself at 908 Orange Street for 75k. You can get them cheaper easy, though a little work may need to be done. http://www.jacomaglobal.com contact us for more help.

HI Robin,
I'm a former First Weber Realtor out of Madison, WI who's originally from the MS Coast. I lived 5 years in Madison and have been in real estate now about 8 years total. What's bringing you to the bayou?

In regard to your question Damion introduced you to some good local tools available online. It is also noteworth that in a strong buyer's market like today's there are creative financing techniques you could use when you're on a limited budget. You can possibly get a much better house that would fit your monthly budget and not require much work. This "creative" option depends on your buying circumstances like, cash to put down, maximum monthly payment amount, employment history, as well as a few other factors. Give me a call or send me an email to discuss this more privately.
