Homes for Sale in Waverly, WV

Waverly is a census-designated place in the northeastern part of Wood County, West Virginia. The industrial riverfront town sits along the Ohio River’s southern side, a short drive away from Parkersburg, Williamstown, and Willow Island. The small town is home to a few hundred residents working in a diverse set of industries in the area. Waverly offers a unique small-town feel where residents know their neighbors well, and community-related events are regularly organized.

There are no major residential developments within Waverly that feature multi-family homes or extensive private subdivisions. Most homes in the area were custom-built to suit the specific needs and budget of each property owner. This is why home builds in Waverly are diverse, with houses being built as recently as the last decade and as old as the 1940s. One downside in the area is that most community residents are generational families living in the area for a long time. This means homes rarely go on sale, and with the low number of households in the community, available real estate is limited. Although properties are relatively affordable in the area, buying opportunities are limited to what’s currently available.

What's Not To Love
