Hello ALL!

My husband has accepted a job at Stennis and we are looking for updated info of the surrounding areas...
My 18 yr old will be moving with us from the metroeast St. Louis area. He will be looking to attend a community college for his gen ed classes and looking to walk on a basketball team.
I have been looking tirelessly online at homes and different locations that would fit my family. I am originally from northern La and he is from the panhandle Fla. Any suggestions to nice areas that are not too rural with easy access to conveniences but offers newer/nicer homes $275,000-400,000.....

We are also very open to building...looking for a great realtor that specializes in relocation assistance as well

Thank you lots

Diamondhead should be the first place to look for houses. Close and right down the interstate from Gulfport and Biloxi. I would not recommend Slidell, LA. About double the drive will get you into the NOLA suburbs of Covington/Mandeville. Gulfport and Biloxi are great places too, just a little farther drive than Diamondhead.

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College or Pearl River Community College for your son.

Try the Dave Ramsey ELP realtors. I've always had a good experience with those.

With you not knowing much about the area I'd probably stay north of I-10, with hurricanes and all.

Should be. I would, however, recommend a realtor. They will help much more than anyone on City-Data.

You could always rent for a while in Bay St. Louis while you figure out the area. Get you a condo for a while and enjoy that area while you get acclimated.

Diamondhead.
Waveland.
Bay St. Louis.
Pass Christian.
Long Beach.

Those are the towns that are closest to Stennis with some sort of amenities. Part of your house hunting will depend on what activities are part of your daily life. I would also recommend renting for a while to see how the job goes and see what area is similar to the lifestyle you had in St. Louis. It's roughly 35 minutes of commute from Long Beach, but the only community college I can think of is in Gulfport, which is another 20 in the opposite direction.

Suggestion for realtor would be to look for houses in your budget/needs and see if there is a common realtor listing them. At least it would be someone to start talking to.

Price homeowners insurance before you buy or build. I believe insurance will be more reasonable north of I 10.

The Oaks golf club in Pass Christian is a beautiful area with mostly newer houses, and the schools are top-rated. Pass Christian and Bay St. Louis both are like living in paradise. Diamondhead is nice, right off the interstate, and has the most new-type houses.
