Biloxi, Mississippi is part of the Gulfport-Biloxi metropolitan area located in southern Mississippi. This city has homes on the water and a little more inland, but since the city is right on the Mississippi Sound nothing is too far from water. You can find single family homes, town homes, condos and apartments throughout the area. The median home cost in Biloxi is about $140,000, but that doesn't mean that the huge mansion-like houses on the beach can't reach into the millions.
