BEST DEAL IN SOUTH OLEANDER NEIGHBORHOOD
1921 Hawthorne Road
South Oleander is one of Wilmington’s first exclusive neighborhoods. Most of the homes were built in the 60’s and 70’s on lots that are larger than many of the more modern communities. This one is on a half acre. The house features a floor plan that was more common several decades ago, with formal living and dining rooms plus a large den that leads to an outdoor patio. In addition to four bedrooms, there is also a large room over the garage that could be used as a 5th bedroom or media room. Hardwood floors run through out most of the downstairs and the galley kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Since it first came on the market in the spring the owners have dropped the price by $40,000. It now sits at $118.32 a square foot. The average in the neighborhood for the last year has hovered around $148 per square foot. Asking price $339,000.For more information.

BEST DEAL IN BRUNSWICK FORREST
1182 Evangeline, Leland
Moving into a townhome doesn’t necessarily mean you need to sacrifice size or luxury. Nearly 3,000 square feet, this three-bedroom, two and a half bath unit is bigger than many free-standing homes. The house features a private courtyard, arched entryway, gas fireplace, sunroom room, bonus/media room and updates such as two-year-old hardwood floors, granite countertops and maple cabinets. In addition, this unit has a ton of natural light, which is not always the case with townhomes. The property comes with all the amenities of a socially active, upscale community, including a fitness center, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis and pickleball courts. This home is listed at $121.12 per square foot, which we think makes it a great deal. Asking price $357,900.

BEST DEAL IN SHALLOTTE
4790 Hen Cove Ave. SW
When we first glanced at this picture, we thought we were looking at a townhome with two separate porches in the front. It’s not. This is a single-family, tri-level home. The main entrance is on the right. The stairs on the left lead to the living area. This home was listed in the spring. It caught our attention earlier this month when the owners lowered its price by $10,000. The price now sits at under $100 per square foot. We think its a great deal because the home has been completely updated and renovated. The kitchen is modern with granite countertops and stainless steel. New laminate floors run throughout the downstairs as well as the middle level. The home has three bedrooms, three baths in just under 2,000 square feet. It is only a mile away from a public boat launch. As you can tell from the photo, there is no garage, which may be an issue for some buyers. Asking price $199,000.
