By the time Presidents Day Weekend hits in February, people are getting itchy about their plans and if the weather gets nice, youll be surprised how busy we get. Normally the winters in Coastal Delaware down near the beach resorts, are mild. Of course, this year is proving to be one of those winters for the record books. I wore a wool coat this month that I have only worn 2 or 3 other times since I moved here in 2000! By next week, I see temperatures coming back to our normal range, so start making your plans.

It is a great time to view homes for sale in both new and existing neighborhoods in Delaware.

Their home in Arizona is under contract and Bill Bell helped them find their new Delaware home this trip.
