Areas with Lifestyle "Active"


These active Greater Wilmington communities don’t have community amenities, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have some great things to offer home buyers. Matter-of-fact, communities without amenities often don’t have homeowner associations (HOAs) or they have low HOA fees. Click on the community name to see area highlights, pictures, school information, and popular nearby destinations. Have a question about a community? Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re happy to help you narrow your home search.
