Big City Lawyers vs. Nascar in a Small State

Kent county DE market report

While listings across the line in New Castle County were down 11.5% in March, those in Kent County were down 22%. However, closed sales were up almost 43% to the north, Kent saw closed sales at a still healthy 38.6%. Pending sales were at almost 29% in Kent, they were just under 20% in New Castle.

Because of the higher populaltion numbers in New Castle County, which contains the State's largest city, Wilmington, the total numbers are much higher there--with 1105 closed sales in 2012 so far, while Kent County was at 292 closed sales at the end of March.

Dover, the State Capital, is in Kent County and is home to about 36,000 people, while Wilmington has twice that number of people. And although Dover has the "Monster Mile" and NASCAR, there are probably enough lawyers in Wilmington (mecca for corporation lawyers) to make up for not having the "Monster" moniker.
