Rent to Own Homes in Jackson, MS

Jackson, Mississippi, calls itself the "City with Soul," and rightfully so. Devastation and turmoil throughout the years were not enough to keep the city from picking up the pieces and rebuilding. Upon its incorporation as a city and its appointment as Mississippi's capital in 1821, Jackson immediately rose to prominence. Restaurants and hotels lined the streets to accommodate legislatures from around the state who came to conduct their political business in the capitol building. Mississippi's supreme court was also located in the city, and attorneys and their clients traveled to the capital to appeal cases, further bolstering the local economy.

After devastation and destruction in the Civil War paired with unrest during the Civil Rights movement, Jackson's economy is now back on track. Primary industries in the city include financial services, agriculture commodities, manufacturing, and government. Consumer National Bank, First American Bank, First Commercial Bank, and Trustmark National Bank all have headquarters in Jackson. It is the most populous city in the state, with 160,628 residents who are more tolerant of each other than ever. After decades of rebuilding, the state is a great option for people who are looking to move. Jackson's rent-to-own homes are affordable, and there are plenty of jobs available - all the more reason to make the "City with Soul" your new hometown.
