Take a Quick Look at Our Top 10 Communities in Delaware

Having too many choices can make your search for a new home more challenging unless you figure out shortcuts that help you zero-in on the aspects that matter most. You might focus on the location if you need to be within easy commuting distance to work, a good school system, or recreational and cultural options. You might also limit your options to communities that offer the amenities – from tennis and pickleball courts to pools with clubhouses to easy access to golf courses – that best suit your lifestyle. Or you might be drawn to a small number of communities that offer the architecture that makes you feel most at home. 

Whether you’re drawn to communities that have been specifically developed for people who are 55 and over, or are still raising your kids, here are some details from our list of the “Top 10” Active Adult Communities.
