Economic recovery in the Mississippi Gulf Coast is being manifested in the rising average sales price of homes in the region, says leading local Realtor® and Platinum Award-winning top producer Sherry Owen.

2016 produced a banner year in sales in the region and Sherry once again achieved the prestigious Top Producer highest level Platinum Award in both residential and commercial real estate from the Gulf Coast Association of REALTORS®.

The efforts of Gulf Coast residents and businesses to overcome the effects of Hurricane Katrina, the decline of the national economy, and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is now bearing fruit, with 2017 showing indicators of recovery. In real estate, according to prominent local Realtor® Sherry Owen, the economic recovery is felt in particular by home sellers who are seeing increases in the average sales price of properties.

Since 2011, following the oil spill, the average sales price of MS Gulf Coast real estate has experienced a steady yearly increase of 4-5% every year until 2016. “In 2016,” says Owen, “we saw a very heartening 6% increase over the 2015 sales price. And year to date for 2017 is showing indications of record breaking increases – with a 7% increase over 2016 numbers at this time.”
