If you’re looking to buy a second home or simply a vacation home for your family to use during the summer, there’s a number of reasons we’re a little biased about buying new homes in Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island. Call it bragging or simply sharing the facts, there are dozens of reasons that your new Sussex County home could be your all-time favorite home!

First things first—Delaware is the first. Well, was the first. Delaware is known as the “First State” because it was the first of the 13 colonies to ratify the United States Constitution back in 1787. What this essentially means is that our beautiful beaches are as American as you can get. What better excuse to celebrate where you live then to live in the most historic of all states.

Location, location, location. Fenwick Island is a coastal town located in Sussex County and closest to Bethany Beach. Named after Thomas Fenwick who settled in Maryland, Fenwick Island is actually a narrow peninsula and separates Little Assawoman Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. Our beautiful, cozy town is as close to the water as you can get. Living at Bayside means you get to embrace the beauty of living at Fenwick Island, while enjoying all that our wonderful community has to offer—including the Freeman Stage!

Buying a new home, whether it’s a second or vacation home, is always a great investment. Delaware is located in the middle of the East Coast. This means both Southerners and Northerners alike can agree that traveling to Delaware is hardly an inconvenience—in fact, it’s the perfect distance from your primary home, yet close enough for even the shortest vacation trip with your family. Buying one of our new beach homes at Bayside means you always have a place to relax and a place to spend time with your family and friends.

Do better with numbers? Here are some financial figures to convince you. Delaware has (0) no sales tax, (0) no inheritance tax, and (0) no social security tax!
