Homes for sale in Wilton Manors tend to be well manicured.  Homes on the east side of Wilton Manors tend to command a higher price as these properties can be on the water, are larger and are “closer” to downtown Wilton Manors, then homes on the West side of Wilton Manors. East Wilton Manors tends to be more desirable to new home owners, though the recent revitalization and influx of buyers has significantly changed Wilton Manors West.  Homes have become so pricey on the East Side that many buyers have looked into West Wilton Manors to purchase and improve the area.  Wilton Manors Luxury Homes for sale have seen a recent increase in prices also.
