To my knowledge, there is not a publicly available GIS solution for this. However, if you are working with a buyer's agent, they should be able to pull this data on a per-home basis using GIS data provided by our local REALTOR® board.

If you don't have a buyer's agent - feel free to shoot me an email and I can refer one to you.

That is really a tough question without knowing more about you, your ideal home, etc. Looking for something cheap and convenient - looking right around the base would be optimal. You could also look in Ocean Springs, D'Iberville, Woolmarket, and even Gulfport near the interstate are convenient for a quick commute.

Feel free to contact me directly. If you can supply more information I will gladly feed you more information. You can also check out my website which happens to be the number one real estate website on the coast and has lots of information on the areas.

Damion Flynn answered:
Info on this site is almost always pulled from another site. The info on this particular property was probably entered into another site that aggregated the information to Trulia. It is all based on how the listing agent posted it.
So the short answer is because that is most likely how the listing agent posted it.

Depending on where your income falls you could qualify for up to $22,500 in down payment assistance, up to $3500 in closing costs assistance and up to 60% of your loan mortgaged at 0% interest. If you need help with this program, let me know. I don't mind helping you out... Great program! ... more

The numbers represent the different areas the MS Gulf Coast MLS region is broken into, which are searchable fields. For instance, you would search 20-OceanSprings for the Ocean Springs area. You can view this map at, and then click MLS Area Map on the left column. ... more

You may have a hard time finding a good answer when posting in Ocean Springs, MS.
However, having grown up in the Charlotte, NC area, I can give some insight to that area.

Depending on where you are wanting to be, South Charlotte (Pineville) is one of the favorites for me. It offers good schools and plenty to do. If you were looking North of Charlotte, you could look at Huntersville, or even Concord/Kannapolis areas.

If you want someone to give you more information, please feel free to contact me by email or phone (228.365.1883) and I can put you on to a friend of mine who is an excellent Real Estate Broker in the Charlotte metro area - I am sure she can shed a lot more light on the area than I since I have not lived there in about 10 years. I do still visit annually, but I have not been in the day to day in quite some time :-)

Ocean Springs was severely impacted by Katrina, and homes in the low lying areas and along the coast line were severely flooded, wind damaged or destroyed by Katrina! The downtown and shopping districts did not sustain much damage, therefore a lot of the rescue and recovery groups used Ocean Springs as their base of operations to help the other cities and home owners along the Mississippi Gulf Coast recover.
1400 Spruce Street as well as most of the homes in the Ocean Beach Estates subdivision sustained extensive wind or flood damage. Many of these homes have been rebuilt.

Ocean Springs has several "newer" subdivisions but part of the appeal of the area is the old-town feel. New homes start in the low $100k range and go up from there. We have a LOT of information about the are on our website and would be glad to assist you in finding the home that would perfect for you and your family. ... more

I am in California so I can only give you free analysis tool. My website has a rent vs purchase program.
It does the cash flow analysis see which way is better. In west coast you used to be able to make $ as short as 2-3 years. In today's market that is not the case. You can lose $. If you talk to realtors they want to sell your something so the answer is not what I give you which is a cash flow tool.
Let me know if it helps!

There is not a right answer here. I'd consult with real estate agents about the potential price for the coastal home, and also about buying whereever it is you wish to live next, then you'll have better information to make a personal decision. ... more

Thank you and your wife for your service. My husband spent 20 years in the Navy and he loved it. You should start looking now. It is really never too early to look. I really would not describe the US market as "bad". This is really a "leveling off" from over buying. Mortgage lenders turned their heads to buyers credit and buyers over purchased. A lot of people made purchases that they should not have and financed it with loans that were not intended for their purpose. It is a difficult time, but for you this is a great time. I would love to help you and can refer you to a few good agents in the area that we trust. You can reach me by email at
