Its natural beauty and vast historical sites have made Mississippi a popular place for real estate. The number of flipped houses has increased 12% in the past year and the average home value has risen 3.2%. In the past year, home appreciation rates in Mississippi have been some of the highest in the nation. Mississippi is currently experiencing a seller’s market. Beth Hansen, CEO of the Mississippi Association of Realtors, said “It’s all about supply and demand. Right now there’s strong demand.” Reflecting these statistics and the recent demand for housing, the timing couldn’t be better to invest in properties in Mississippi.
