Does Wilmington have any neighborhoods with nice older homes? Not mansions, more like cottages under 2500 sqft. If so, can you direct me to streets or intersections. Often these areas can be hit or miss block by block, but most cities have districts like this. Where's Wilmington's? Thanks

Yes- This would be a good start (the map on second page) if you're visiting:

If you're interested in buying or renting one, I'm sure folks here who are closer to that immediate local area can give you more specific advise, but if that's the case, mentioning the price point you're interested in would be good.

Check out Wrightsville Avenue between 17th Street and Barnett Avenue.

The are bounded roughly by Dawson Street, Wrightsville Ave., Independence Blvd. and Oleander has mostly really large, nice homes, but the are some more modest ones sprinkled in as well.

There are other areas along Wrightsville Ave. that may be what you're looking ofr as well, for example between Wrightsville and Oleander between McMillan Avenue and Wallace Avenue.

Really though, it sounds like a good realtor could help you immensely.

Are you interested in the Historic District? Look around 3rd and Queen St in 28401. There are smaller homes under $300K.

Wilmington has multiple historic districts. 3rd and Queen is part of the Downtown Historic District, and its an "iffy" part of downtown.

Also check out the Carolina Place neighborhood off of Market street close to downtown. Older homes, very cute neighborhood.
