After surviving the painful break up of her 33 year marriage, Alisa decided to start a new chapter in her life. She left behind her family and friends in West Virginia and moved to Gulfport Mississippi. With a budget of $200,000 to $300,000, she's looking for a 3 bed, 2 bath, southern style home with great architectural details. Since she's downsizing from her 5,100 square foot home in West Virginia, she wants to have lots of storage space and is determined to get a "hers & hers" closet in the master bedroom. As a master gardener, Alisa wants a big backyard that she can landscape. But, more importantly she wants that outdoor space for her babies, Callie & Archie, her bearded collies, which are being taken care of by friends in West Virginia. Gulfport broker, Bridget Ferrucci is determined to help Alisa find the perfect house for her fresh start. The first place Bridget takes Alisa to is in the Diamondhead community near Gulfport. This 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home has 2,257 square feet and is listed at $270,000. Alisa likes the open layout, high ceilings, upgraded kitchen and bathrooms. She especially loves the southern style patio and backyard. But, the master bedroom doesn't have a "hers & hers" closet and the front of the house lacks southern charm. The second place is in the heart of Gulfport. Listed for $258,000, this house has 3 beds, 2 1/2 baths and is 2,265 square feet. Alisa loves the southern style exterior, the architectural details, upgraded kitchen and bathrooms and the "hers & hers" closet. On the downside, she thinks the backyard isn't big enough and feels that the patio isn't nearly as wonderful as that of the first house. Option number three is in the D'Iberville community near Gulfport. Listed for $280,000, this home has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and 3,000 square feet. Alisa loves the high ceilings, the large kitchen, open floor plan, beautiful porch and big backyard. She thinks it's elegant but comfortable. But, she would love to have granite countertops in the kitchen and is concerned about the light colored carpet, because of her dogs. With 3 great options, which one will Alisa choose?
