Living in Wilmington

Wilmington’s appeal stems from one thing: Its location. Nestled between the Cape Fear River, Intracoastal Waterway, and the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll find a quiet, hometown community that loves to get out on the water. If you enjoy relaxing on the beach, soaking in the warm sunshine, and the occasional fishing adventure, then you’ll love Wilmington and the friendly folks who call it home!
 
It is an ideal location for homeowners seeking to relax at home, away from the hustle and bustle of a big city (yet, within easy driving distance to Raleigh, Charlotte, Myrtle Beach, and beyond.) The weather is mild year-round and you’ll rarely have to fight a snowstorm. Add all of this up and you have one great location to call home
 
The Wilmington real estate market continues to be very competitive year over year with not only an increase in home prices but fewer days on the market as well. A large historic district comprises many homes in Wilmington, which is known for its 18th and 19th-century architecture. While single-family residences make up the majority of real estate in Wilmington, vacation homes and investment property sales continue to rise due to the city’s proximity to the ocean.

Beaches & The Community

A large part of Wilmington’s appeal includes its close proximity to the beaches of Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Bald Head Island, and Wrightsville Beach, all of which offer public beach access and unspoiled, beautiful sand. However, the city offers much more than just easy beach access. Great restaurants and lively nightspots are everywhere, and cultural offerings are also rich, as you will find plenty of theatrical performances, galleries, museums, and history. Known to many as “Hollywood of the East,” Wilmington’s beauty has also attracted many major TV and movie studio productions. Also voted America’s Best Riverfront in USA Today’s 10Best Reader’s Choice Travel Awards, Wilmington continues to make a national splash.
