We are planning to move from Raleigh to Wilmington. What would be a good neighborhood where we could find a nice house for about $200,000 not too far out with a fair sized yard?
Thanks.

there are lots of homes in this city in that price range. guess it depends on a few things. newer house or older house? how big of a yard? what part of town?

An older house is fine. We would like a yard of about half an acre. We are open to suggestions about what part of town. We need at least 3 bedrooms and at least about 1700 feet. We wouldn't like to drive too much to get into Wilmington, to get to the beach, and to have places to fish.
Thanks!

I was recently looking in the $175-200k range, but did not buy anything. I've had my eye on the market for about one year. Pine Valley, Lincoln Forest, Windermere, Devon Park, Audubon, Long Leaf Hills, Winter Park are all good neighborhoods in the middle of everything in Wilmington.

You also have Masonboro, Monkey Junction, Ogden/Middle Sound Loop Rd, Echo Farms, Seagate.. all are fairly close in, and for a similar price you could get a little bigger house for a little further out.

Each area has trade-offs. Access to fishing and the beach is a little cheaper, easier, hassle-free in the southern part of the county, toward Carolina Beach.

I agree with the pine valley area. you should be able to get one of those brick ramblers that are everywhere here for under or around $200k.
