Downtown Wilmington NC Condos for Sale Historic District 28401

This is a summary of Historic District condos for sale in downtown Wilmington NC. It includes waterfront riverfront condo and new construction.  I"ll write in depth about this niche of downtown Wilmington condos for sale later.  But ours is a unique market with serious history. We have condos from the 19th century.  A couple of them were built in 1899 and 1910.  How cool is that! The charm factor for some of them is off the charts.  A river view condo that is just 500 sq ft and costs $410,000 can gross $52,000 in short term rentals aka vacation rentals so they are great investments! I sold historic townhouses in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia some of which were built in the late 1800s, but it was not till I began working in Wilmington that I had access to historic condos.

Vacation Rental Condos in Downtown Wilmington = Profitable

The historic building built before 1940 vacation rental condo in the historic district are very profitable with high ROI (return on investment).  At the beach now oceanfront condos are grossing about 7% of list price.  But downtown can gross 13.7%  So they are 2x more profitable than oceanfront condos in North Carolina.

Riverfront and Waterfront condos downtown Wilmington NC 28401

There are several waterfront condos with wonderful views of the Cape Fear River. The rest of the wilmington nc waterfront condos are here. Some of the buildings are historical and all are surrounded by charm afforded by downtown Wilmington. For most of the condominiums there are just a couple of sales each year and sometimes none so it is not worth the time to build out the pages.
