Why Live in Delaware?

Coastal Delaware is one of the few regions in the nation that offers beautiful beaches, a small town lifestyle, and a lower cost of living all within a few hours’ drive of major metropolitan areas. It is an attractive retirement destination and an ideal place to build your second home. Unlike many urban areas, Lewes and Rehoboth offer a wide variety of options for home sites including scattered lots, home sites in existing residential communities or home sites in resort towns. Property owners here enjoy significantly lower property taxes than in the surrounding states.
