In a recent article by U.S. News, experts determined the best and worst markets for property taxes across the country. It came as no surprise that Sussex County, home to the Bayside community, ranked first on the “Best” list! With an effective tax rate at 0.23% and average 2014 property tax on SFRs at $652, our county on the Delaware Coast is a clear choice for any homebuyer.
But the benefits in Sussex County don’t end with the tax benefits of owning a home here. With absolutely zero sales tax, the state of Delaware is a prime location for your next shopping spree. Which is so easy to do, especially with the nearby outlets and charming local boutiques! Other economic advantages include no tax on social security benefits, up to $12,500 of retirement income tax exempt for those 60 and older, and so much more.
And, the perks of living in the Bayside community alone are enough to attract any active family to our wonderful community. Just four miles from the beaches, stunning new homes are complemented with expertly maintained green space, walking trails and natural features. With bayside access at The Point, families can enjoy a beautiful day spent crabbing, kayaking or paddle boarding.
Between the tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, pools, picnic areas, and additional features at the Sun Ridge Tennis & Recreation Center, a day at Bayside is certainly never a boring one. In 2016, we’ll also be introducing the New Indoor Pool & Fitness Center for year-round fun. And with the Masters upon us, we can’t help but mention our Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course right in our community – the first-ever in Delaware! With every golf terrain imaginable, this course is as diverse as it is beautiful.
What better way to enjoy the endless benefits of Delaware than to move to our extraordinary beach community? At Bayside, Schell Brothers builds both villas and single-family homes, and NVHomes has new townhomes available with villas and single-family homes coming later this spring. Custom homebuilding opportunities are also available with Marnie Custom Beach Homes or Echelon Custom Homes.
With an incredible variety of new homes, you too could soon be enjoying all that Delaware and the Bayside community has to offer!
