Sussex County Real Estate Update Fall 2014

Sussex County Real Estate Neighborhood News-Fall 2014

By Kathy Sperl-Bell

Sussex County, a.k.a. "Coastal Delaware," is where Boomers look to move for not only a primary residence in retirement but often for a second home/vacation home even while they are still working. This is the fastest growing county with the smallest population of the three. Due to its close proximity to the beach resorts in Delaware and on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, land costs higher in this county and prices are higher than in Kent County and often higher than the northern part of the state as well.

On the western side of the county, you can find a single family home in the $300s. The closer you get to the beach, the higher the price of a new home and the range will be in the $400s and $500s.

We do our best to keep current with available listings in the state's most popular neighborhoods, inventory changes daily. If you are serious and ready to pursue your dream in Coastal Delaware, please call me at 302-542-1203 or Email me for the most current Sussex County information.

At INDEPENDENCE in Millsboro, there are no new homes available and much of the scheduled new construction for the next 1 1/2 years is already pre-sold. What do we suggest? We suggest a quality pre-owned home in the community. We have 5 fine quality pre-owned homes for sale. In most cases, the Sellers have had a choice of lots. They have purchased the Boomers' most popular options and upgrades. Some come with their own solar power systems, beautiful exteriors with curb appeal; and will include many post-purchase upgrades like those tasteful Plantation shutters or blinds, sound systems and other fixtures when they sell their homes. Email me today if Independence is for you!

At 55+ HERITAGE SHORES, our Agent/Heritage Shores resident Linda Chick is thrilled that the community has just released a new section for development featuring some lovely premium lots with water and golf course views. CLICK HERE to View Available Listings in this Neighborhood.

Last chance for buying in the 55+ BAY CROSSING neighborhood. When they're gone, they're gone. If 55+ in Lewes, East of Route 1, is on your shopping list, take another look at these existing homes for sale.
