What makes a city appealing to homebuyers? In many cases, abundant job prospects, a rich local history, and a wealth of family activities are some of the strongest draws for potential residents. Many of the larger cities on the East Coast can claim to offer all three, but Wilmington, Delaware may be one of the few that can pair these essentials with an irresistible small-town charm. Wilmington homes for sale are a good fit for anyone looking to enjoy the perks of fast-paced East Coast living without struggling in an over-crowded, over-hurried metro area.

The city covers 17 square miles at the convergence of the Delaware and Christina Rivers. Because over a third of the city’s area is covered by water, a large portion of Wilmington real estate provides quick access to water and river-related festivities. Specifically, Wilmington houses for sale close to the Riverfront area offer residents fun dining, nightlife, arts, and culture options. Popular restaurants like Firestone and Iron Hill serve up delicious fare while the Delaware Theatre Company entertains guests with a mix of classic and contemporary plays. The Riverfront area is a must-see for visitors or those interested in Wilmington area real estate.

Wilmington’s entertainment and sightseeing options extend far beyond the river’s edge. When checking Wilmington real estate listings, look for homes for sale near one of the city’s four state parks: Brandywine Park, Alapocas Woods Natural Area, the H. Fletcher Brown Park, and Rockford Park. These green spaces are full of playgrounds, zoos, picnic areas, and other family fun. Residents of Wilmington also enjoy year-round ethnic and outdoor festivals, including Haneef’s African Festival, the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival, and National Hispanic Month festivities. Wilmington’s rich history, dating back to well before the American Revolutionary War, offers fascinating historical landmarks to see and explore. There’s no shortage of fun to be had in Wilmington and no shortage of sights to behold. These options serve as incredible perks alongside Wilmington houses for sale.

There’s more to choosing a home than finding a fun area, however. One of the most important things to consider when researching Wilmington real estate is the strength of the local economy. Fortunately, Wilmington boasts a bustling business community and serves as the home to many large, national, job-providing corporations. The largest industry in the city is, by far, the credit card industry. Wilmington is home to many of the country’s credit giants like Chase Card Services, Barclays Bank of Delaware, and Bank of America, which employees over 10,000 people on its own. Other notable employers in the area include DuPont, the University of Delaware, and Walgreen’s.

Wilmington homes for sale offer an appealing combination of elements for homebuyers in any demographic. A strong fleet of employers provide steady employment for tens of thousands of residents, the Wilmington Riverside district provides alluring shopping and dining, and a bevy of historical landmarks give tourists and residents alike a chance to experience America’s rich history first-hand. Competition for available Wilmington area real estate remains high, so contact your local Prudential Fox & Roach agent today and we’ll give you all the information you need about Wilmington real estate and homes for sale, fast!
