Hi everyone!

I would really love for some opinions, comments, concerns etc.. I'm 25 yrs old and just tired of PA, I've visited NC few times and considering moving to Wilmington. If I move, I'm planning on purchasing a home (selling my current) and also finding new work (my current job is nothing special). So please, any tips, facts, dos and don'ts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Scope out the job situation first before you commit to anything. Lots of people want to move to Wilmington, and lots of college students want to remain there. So, unless you have some exceptional skills, prepare for competition.

I would suggest renting for a bit and getting settled with a job before buying a home.

Lots of the younger people look at buying a condo as well...something they can hang on to or rent out if they end up moving.

Remember the Wilmington area has the Historic downtown and beach communities, there are lots of things to do for a 25 y/o. IMO, there is no reason not to move if you are looking for something more, but be smart going about it...learn the area, understand there is competition for jobs and always keep in mind trying to have fun.

Thanks everyone! I thought it over and decided it would be smart to first rent for 6mnths-1yr, get used to the area, find work. I have applied to many different jobs, can anyone suggest places where they are def hiring?
