Neighborhood Spotlight: Wilmore
The Wilmore neighborhood is one of Charlotte’s most popular up-and-coming neighborhoods. Charming, moderately-priced bungalows dating back to the 1920s and ’30s speak to a gentler era when neighbors spent evenings on the front porch visiting with one another and enjoying sweet iced tea. Wilmore offers tons of character and beautiful Uptown views from nearly every street in the neighborhood.
Conveniently located within walking distance of the Lynx light rail, Uptown is only a few minutes away. Wilmore offers easy access to local boutiques, restaurants and the breweries of South End. Brand-new apartments and condo buildings offer a range of housing options. And, for the sports fans, Panthers Stadium is a just quick walk up the road. Even with all that Wilmore already has to offer, the growth and development here continues to outpace many historic Charlotte neighborhoods.
With nine homes on the market representing 2.1 months of inventory, we are definitely looking at a seller’s market here. Even Charlotte as a whole, which has a record low inventory, has more than Wilmore with 3.3 months available.
Homes currently on the market range in size from a modest 825 square feet to over 3,200 square feet. Home prices range from $199,500 to $589,900. While there are historic homes in the neighborhood, there is also new construction. Many homes have been renovated and updated to appeal to today’s home buyers.
The average price per square foot has been on the rise, perhaps indicating the growing popularity of the Wilmore neighborhood. However, there’s been little fluctuation in the average sales price of homes, which is actually good news for buyers.
If you’re looking for a neighborhood full of charm with a convenient location and easy accessibility to plenty of local entertainment and lots of great shopping, you won’t want to miss South End’s fantastic Wilmore neighborhood.
