“There’s a huge price difference in homes,” said Nell Wyatt of Nell Wyatt Real Estate. “Many homes are over $1 million, while others are perhaps in the $200,000 to $300,000 range or less, giving multiple home buyers from different economic backgrounds a chance to reside in the area.”
“There are many reasons home buyers are attracted to Ridgeland,” Wyatt noted. “We offer close proximity to the scenic Natchez Trace, Ridgeland is an easy commute to the metro Jackson area and we have outstanding recreational options including the 33,000 acre Ross Barnett Reservoir and the city’s walking and biking trails.”
Home buyers in Madison County also find a wide choice of older and newer homes to choose from, Wyatt added. “We have listings for homes built 20 and 30 years ago and new construction homes near desirable shopping areas,” she said. “Ridgeland also offers townhomes and condos in a broad range of prices.”
