In Delaware, there are distinct differences between the 3 counties. Here, we see Central Delaware's Kent County's report for November, 2011, and the year to date changes. Where New Castle County (the northernmost county in Delaware) showed a median sales price drop of 9%, Kent showed a 10.5% drop.
However, in contrast, while NCCo showed an average days on market for the year to be up 23%, Kent only showed less than 4% more days on the market. In November, the single family detached inventory was down 14.5% in Kent, NCCo showed a 17.5% drop. So we know all real estate is local, and in Delaware, the county where you live is a factor to consider.
