Monday Market Update for January 21, 2019: The Most Expensive Homes in Ocean Springs

Provided by Jennifer Jones of Rain Residential:

Below is a list of the 10 Most Expensive Homes sold in Ocean Springs per the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).  Again, this is according to our MLS, so if you know of someone who would like to share their home that we have not mentioned, let us know as we would like to see it 

Working in downtown Ocean Springs it always seems that the closer to downtown you get the higher the prices for homes.  It is probably not a surprise that if you live on the coast, the closer you get to the water the better.  As you will see waterfront reigns supreme when it comes to home prices here:
