I am moving to Wilmington in late June to take a position. Can anyone recommend affordable housing that is not near student housing? I am looking for a one bedroom and have pets. Looking to spend between $500 and $650 a month. I am looking for something relatively close to UNC W. Thanks!

There are many apartments in that price range. I used hotpads.com to check. However, it's difficult to avoid students and still be close to UNCW. There were a couple small houses and duplexes that would give you more privacy.

I have found several places, but I am having a hard time determine how good most of these places are. Simply because I am not in Wilmington now it is hard to tell. I was hoping to get some personal opinions. I will check out the website you recommend.

Does anyone have any information on Pinewood Apartments (Pinewood Apartments, Wilmington, North Carolina) on Randall Parkway or McMillan Oaks (McMillan Oaks apartments for rent - within walking distance of UNCW) on Strickland Place or the Glen (http://www.phillipsmanagement.com/nc...len/index.html) on Fillmore Drive? I read some reviews about crime and flooding at Pinewood but didn't know how reliable these reports are. McMillan Oaks has an F with the Better Business Bureau but has only one complaint. Anyone have any experiences with these apartment complexes?

I used to live near Pinewood. They look terrible. Cheap I'm sure, but they don't look safe.
