Does anyone have any suggestions as to areas we should look for housing? We're looking for something family friendly. We wouldn't be opposed to an apartment set-up that has a community aspect to it (pool, fitness center, shared common areas, etc.). We'll be looking for something in the 1200/month range with 2 bedrooms 1.5-2 baths.
I've heard N. Wilmington is a nice area to look as well as areas outside the city. Any tips on realtors, locations, or rental agencies would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Check out Greenville Place apartments. The apartments themselves are a little older but the quality isn't terrible, and they should meet your budget/space requirements (including pets if you have them). There are lots of families in the complex, a pool, and a workout room, and it feels more like a neighborhood than your standard recently-built apartments. The complex is also in one of the nicest areas in Delaware (Greenville) and probably a 10-15 minute drive from your office.
There are plenty of other complexes throughout the area but that's the one I'm familiar with and would recommend. North Wilmington is also nice, along with Trolley Square and some of the areas around it. The rental market in Wilmington seems to be a lot pricier than the buyer's market, so it might be hard to find a decent house in a safe area at that price.
