Examples of Contemporary Homes and real estate Wilmington

Sample contemporary homes for sale in Wilmington

Contemporary houses are a very small niche of Wilmington real estate as contemporary homes in general are not common in the southeast. I would say contemporary homes really are only sought after by perhaps 10% of the buyers which makes them a tough resale  as they are a niche product for sure. What makes a home “contemporary” well that’s a bit subjective, but often it has to do with unique geometry and shapes which are outside of the box compared to regular ranch homes, colonial homes, patio homes Etc they’re hard to explain but you know a contemporary home when you see one. They have rigid angles usually…sharp angles and openness.


Generally speaking these homes take a lot longer to sell than traditional homes because against that such as there’s much less demand for them so often they may have market value perhaps 3 to 5% less than the regular homes in the neighborhood for that reason if an owner is willing to tough it out and wait and wait and wait for contract at the right price they might succeed though because people that are attracted to contemporary homes are out there and they will pay full price.
