The city of Gulfport has been named the most affordable beach town in America, according to a new study from Realtor.com.
With the median price for a home within one mile of the beach at $224,900 and the median price per square foot within one mile of a beach at $144, Gulfport topped other sandy cities including Newport News, Va.; New London, Conn.; Grand Isla, La.; and Corpus Christi, Texas.
“The white-sand beaches of Gulfport, situated about halfway between Mississippi’s border with Louisiana and the Alabama border, tops our list once again,” a portion of the report reads. “Gulfport is a medium-sized city of about 72,000 residents, offering a blend of small-town feel and city life.”
This is the second time in five years that Gulfport has taken the top spot on the site’s list of most affordable beach towns in America. The full list from Realtor.com can be found here.
