it all depends on what kind of work you do. if you want to wait tables or something, I am sure there are plenty of jobs. as for the home market, this is a BUYERS market. reduced, reduced, reduced. if you are going to make an offer on a house, offer about 15-20% less than the asking price.

I lived in Midland, MI. for a couple of years. Trying to block it from my memory Wilmington is a niced place to live if you have a good job. Also a good time to look for deals in the housing market. There is a lot of inventory to choose from. If you want to search for homes, take a look at my website. Hope this helps.

I agree portcity. this is a decent area if you have a good job. the jobs outside the service and retail industry are few and far between. that is reason 1 why I am going to be looking at a more stable area with a good job market!
