Retiring, Relocating to Delaware

By
Real Estate Agent with Jack Lingo REALTORS

Thinking about Retirement, well what better place to come than the Shore in the Delaware.  The taxes are low, we are central located between Washington, DC, New Jersey, Philideliphia, Virginia & Baltimore.  You have 2 major airports within a 2 hours drive and a few local airports that will shuttle you to the large airports.  The town of Lewes is quiet, quiant and a very desirable location.  With many new developments in the area you have a variety of homes to choose from. 

Breakwater is just one of the few east of Route 1 and just mins to downtown Lewes.  The Delaware Bay and the State Park are just a around the corner.  Take a leisurely bike ride along the newly constructed bike path that connects Lewes & Rehoboth.  Breakwater features Townhomes, Single Family and Twin Homes our price range is $399,900 and up.  We have many models to choose from, with a fitness Center and Community Pool.  Schell Brothers (a local builder) with a great reputation is the exclusive builder in Breakwater.  They build a beautiful home.  Stop in to see us anytime.  We are open 7 days a week. 

Hawkseye is also east of Route 1 this community is has a slightly different atmospher than above.  Again a beautiful area in Lewes mins. to everything.  Larger homes, with larger lots.  Community also features a pool and tennis courts.  The Lewes/Rehoboth Bike trail is accessed in this community.  Lots range from $209,000 up. Pick you house plans and let me help you find the lot and builder that suits your needs.

These are just a few of the communities in the area.  For more information on the area feel free to contact me.   

I have provided a few links that will show why Delaware is 1 of the top areas to retire to.

Katie, Nice post.  I am here in Ocean City Maryland/Ocean Pines Maryland area.  You have given me an Idea for a post if you do not mind me doing a similar piece on Ocean City Maryland,  I would however have to leave out the part of LOWER TAXES.

Katie,

I took my Darlin' on the Cape May-Lewes ferry when we were dating.  She got so sick; we laugh about it now.  I love Rehobeth Beach!

Mike aww what a sweet memory LOL, I feel very lucky to work 5 blocks from the ocean.  In the summertime we stoll along the ave (Rehoboth Avenue) with the other tourist.  Its a great place to be. Great Restuarants, plenty to do all year round.  Its even nice to walk to Ocean all year.  The boardwalk is always buzzing with people.
