Gulfport Most Affordable Beach Town

Ever wonder where the most affordable beach town in America is? According to SmartAsset, it’s Gulfport.
SmartAsset compiled a list of the most affordable beach towns based on things like property tax and home values. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the median home value in Gulfport is just over $120,000. The group also says Gulfport homeowners benefit from relatively low property taxes throughout the state, pointing out that the typical Gulfport homeowner pays less than $1,000 a year in property taxes.
Gulfport Economic Development Director David Parker said, “Those are real statistics from the Census Bureau for median home values, for taxes and insurance that prove that we are the most affordable place to live along the beach in the United States. All of that works together to be a great place for people to open a business, to raise a family, to visit, it’s just a fun place to be.”
