There’s a lot to love about owning a home in coastal Delaware – just ask Bayside residents! The beautiful beaches, the tax-free shopping, the laid back lifestyle – the list goes on and on. And according to an article from Delaware Beach Life magazine, the local housing market is yet another reason to love coastal Delaware!

Local real estate professionals are feeling especially optimistic about the market lately, according to the article. There have been quicker sales and higher prices – two indications of a strong housing market – and a buyer base that’s expanding geographically, as an increasing number of residents from nearby states realize all the benefits of living in Delaware. The article also points out the following trends in the coastal Delaware housing market:

  • Non-beachfront location: Homeowners in coastal Delaware are more frequently realizing that buying a home a few miles from the beach is cost-efficient and beneficial. Considering the exorbitant prices of beachfront homes, homeowners are starting to realize that they can get a lot more bang for their buck by just moving their home search just a few miles inland. Home construction reflects this trend, with much of the construction of new homes taking place west of Route One, according to the Delaware Beach Life article. Bayside residents are fully aware of the benefits of living in a coastal, but not beachfront, area – our location in Selbyville means that we’re far enough removed from the hustle and bustle of summer crowds, but we’re still close enough to enjoy easy access to beautiful Fenwick Island beach!
  • Amenities galore: Another benefit of owning a home a few miles inland is being able to enjoy neighborhoods that offer various amenities, an aspect that homeowners increasingly prefer, according to the article. At Bayside, our incredible amenities are a big part of what makes us the premier resort community in Sussex County. Pools, nature trails, a state-of-the-art fitness center, tennis courts, a community restaurant, and the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in Delaware all translate to an unbeatable community experience for Bayside residents. And with a heated indoor pool and new fitness center slated to break ground in 2015, there’ll be even more amenities for Bayside residents to love!
  • Newly built homes: For coastal Delaware homebuyers, there’s a strong trend toward buying new construction homes with upgraded features, according to the article. Whether you call them turn-key homes or move-in ready homes, it’s clear that many homebuyers don’t want to do any upgrading when buying their dream beach home. Whether you’re in the market for a townhome, single-family home or custom home, Bayside’s got you covered with beautiful home designs from excellent builders, including NVHomes and Schell Brothers.

At Bayside, we’re ecstatic that local real estate professionals are so positive about the Sussex County housing market, and we couldn’t be more excited for the future of Bayside as our community continues to grow!
