Real estate is big business in Wilmington, Ogden and Porters Neck, NC. Each year new residents move to the area for jobs and for retirement on the coast. Our Economic Overview section will help give you an idea of who is moving to Wilmington and why. This section helps lead you through the local neighborhoods. Starting with the appealing downtown historic district and moving outward, we tell you about established neighborhoods, up-and-coming developments, Intracoastal Waterway and soundfront communities and more. This section includes listings of apartment complexes that we think are worth recommending.
We also give you listings of local real estate companies and agents, with helpful information and links for finding the one who will best meet your real estate needs. This area has a wealth of reputable, experienced agents.
Because so much of the appeal of the Wilmington area is water-related, in this section you will find our Marinas chapter, which will help you decide where to dock the boat and meet like-minded friends.
Retirees will find a section just for them, including information on relocating, getting involved in the community and staying physically active. For the later retirement years, we offer information on getting help from the community as well as assisted living facilities.
