Hi, my husband and I are moving to Wilmington this summer and are trying to get a sense of the neighborhoods and the best places to rent. We are from Austin, TX and are use to having to pre-lease early, but apparently in Wilmington its best to wait until only 8 weeks out. This is killing me. So, meantime I thought I would focus on research and see who lives there and if anyone rents an apartment, duplex, house whatever in a neighboorhood they would recommend. We would prefer not to go the boxey, super new apartment route, but would prefer something a little funkier (hard wood floors, eclectic, but family oriented neighborhood). Downtown would be great if anyone knows of cool lofts in that area. Also, not too many partying students. That time has passed for us!
