Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Wilmington Island neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Wilmington Island has a 12.0% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 67.9% of American neighborhoods).

The Neighbors

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income.

Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Wilmington Island neighborhood in Savannah, GA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as English (23.1%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (13.3%), and residents who report German roots (10.2%), and some of the residents are also of French ancestry (7.8%), along with some Scottish ancestry residents (4.2%), among others.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Wilmington Island neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (43.3% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.
