I am moving to Wilmington an opening a home cleaning business. I wanted to know if this city a good place for this type of business. I've been there a few times and love it! But I was a visitor. My boyfriend lives there and I want to make sure this type of business can work there. It is a small city. Anyone can help with this question.

wilmington is relatively small, as far as city standards go. I honestly don't think that you will have a hard time doing this type of business if you market it well. there are plenty of retirees who would revel at the thought of someone else cleaning their house! it is all about approach and marketing. find a good, solid, base of clients. if you have weekly customers, you will have no problems.

Thank you jmarquise, I am working on a good business and marketing plan. I' am from Orlando, Fl and could do very well with that type of business here. I wanted a change from Orlando and Wilmington feels right. I will be relocating this June wish me luck!!

Smile Moving to Wilmington

I'm a Realtor here in Wilmington and have used cleaning services many times in the past for my listings. I think that if you market your business correctly and spend the time making connections and gaining repeat customers you'll do great!

I have lived in Wilmington for 8 years and do enjoy the lifestlye here. I've lived on the West coast, NJ and Colorado but find that Wilmington really feels like home.

I just relocated back here and I was thinking of doing the same thing, until I got a job. The Wilmington area is pretty much bursting at the seams with most business. If you are going to open one, I would do it in Leland or Hampstead. These cities are south and north of Wilmington and are expecting huge growth in the next few years. it would be good to be up and running by that time. Good luck!!
