Relocating to The Beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast
Relocating to The Secret Coast?
We think #LoveWhereYouLive was started here!
When relocating to places that offer a high quality of life and an affordable cost of living, the Mississippi Gulf Coast is at the top of the list. It’s a great place to settle down, which is why Elliott Homes is thrilled to build our homes in this gorgeous region! Here are some things to know if you’ll be relocating here:
Housing Options for those Relocating to our Fabulous Coastal Communities
There are many options along the Gulf Coast. Each town is unique and offers plenty of styles, sizes and price points. (You’ll find Elliott Homes all along the coast!)
Geography – One of the biggest perks of living here is indeed, the location. White sandy beaches, dense forests, and salty marshes, not to mention the possibilities at Gulf Islands National Shoreline, like boating, swimming, hiking and birdwatching.
Weather – The summers are long and some days we have high humidity. However, the winters are short and generally warm. There’s nothing like going from snow to sand for many of our homebuyers, vacationers and snowbirds.
Southern Hospitality – Mississippians are likely the friendliest, most polite people you’ll ever meet. Prepare to feel instantly at home.
Fish & Shrimp – There’s a lot of water, so there’s a lot of fishing. Shrimp, oysters, bass, bluefish, catfish… you name it. Fishing is a way of life here in the Gulf or on the river.
Food – Seafood, BBQ, po boys, gumbo, jambalaya, pralines. Need we say more?
Fun Stuff – We have dozens of casinos and golf courses, not to mention world-class shopping and resorts.
Religion – Most Mississippians consider themselves religious, so religion is a big part of the culture here. (Mississippi is home to one of the largest Baptist populations in the world, btw!)
College Football – Speaking of religions… Mississippi State or Ole Miss. Everyone here has a side, so you better pick one.
