New Visitor to Delaware? Make Labor Day a New Beginning!

Summer may be fleeting, but enjoying the beach doesn’t have to be! On the heels of another great Rehoboth Beach season, hopefully you are planning more fall excursions to enjoy celebrations like annual fall sidewalk sales, tons of 5Ks, the famous Jazz Festival, Sea Witch, and many more.

Fall is also the best time of year to shop for real estate! Up to 75 percent of sought-after in-town inventory within Rehoboth’s City Limits hits the market from mid-August through September, mostly due to the rental market cycle.

How hot is the market now? As a point of reference, earlier this week (as of August 30), there were 78 condos and single family homes for sale in-town Rehoboth, ranging in price from $325,000 to over $4M – depending on the type of property, size, condition, amenities and location. An average “in-town” price is $1.5M for a single family home. You can take advantage of this wide range of options (like our famous local Joe Biden recently did)!

Comparison Shopping

Downtown Rehoboth offers unquestionable appeal with walk-ability, restaurants, shopping, and some of the best beaches in the country. But good news! If these factors are on your list of “Must Haves,” and you want to stay within a tighter budget, you have even more options if you cast a wider net.

The Delaware Beaches extend well beyond the Rehoboth City Limits. You can stretch your dollar if you venture even a few miles north. Five miles puts you in Downtown Lewes and another ten puts you in Downtown Milton – and there are many great communities and options in-between.

Downtown Lewes offers an eclectic blend of charming historic architecture and some brand-new construction, albeit on a much smaller scale than Rehoboth. Lewes was long considered the “year round” town; although that’s changed with more businesses staying open longer in Rehoboth as more people have moved to the area full-time. And much of Lewes East of Route 1 offers easy access to the quiet Delaware Bay Beach. One major recent asset is that the Junction and Breakwater Trail (which starts at the new Lewes Library) and the Gordon’s Pond Trail (between Cape Henlopen State Park and Gordon’s Pond) now connect Lewes and Rehoboth Beaches. Your budget can stretch a bit more in Lewes - and you still have easy access to Rehoboth.

And if you are willing to go another five miles north, Milton and its surrounding communities offer tremendous value, compared to Rehoboth and Lewes, offering increasing dining options and gems like its renovated Milton Theater and Dogfish Head brewery (to name only a few).

So how much do prices vary, really?

Note: due to our unique and often varied zoning, two homes on the same street can vary widely in value.

  • Downtown Rehoboth Beach: condos fall in the $300-400K range, a quaint cottage in North Rehoboth can fetch $850K, beach block property garners nearly $1.6M, and totally renovated homes in the beach block are listed at $2.5M. Oceanfront studio apartments are selling in the mid $300s and 2+bedroom beachfront condos are listing at $750K+. If you want 3+ bedrooms facing the ocean, be prepared to spend $1M+. In-town living is among the most expensive around – and can reap the largest rewards in rental income.
  • Residential/country club communities near Rehoboth: from $600K - $900K for a traditional four-bedroom home and $1-$2M for a waterfront property
  • Historic Downtown Lewes: average home price in-town is around $500K, inching up to $600s - $900K+ on Lewes Beach, and includes some new construction communities. Currently, there are 61 properties listed for sale in the Lewes City Limits, which includes Lewes Beach
  • Lewes beachfront community: ranges from $600K - $1.2M a few lots back to $2M bayfront – which is about half of what you would pay for Rehoboth beachfront
  • Adjacent to Lewes: Residential communities along Gills Neck Road offer newer construction and amenities like pool and tennis and start around $600K and go up
  • Five Points (still East of Route 1): Town Center style living with grocery shopping and community amenities condos start in the low $200s, town homes in the low $300s and single family homes at $400K
  • Historic Downtown Milton: average in the low $300s for a turn key historic home, and low $200s for something that might need a little TLC
  • Adjacent to Milton: communities along Cave Neck Road average in the high $200s to high $300s, depending on square footage

This is just a glimpse of the many real estate options available at the Delaware Beaches. The bottom line is that now is the perfect time to shop in Rehoboth and surrounding areas with a great selection of condos, cottages, new construction, historic homes, and more.

Call us and make this Labor Day the beginning of your endless summer at the beach!

Something for Everyone

Our Delaware beach communities offer a full menu of attractions: from Colonial and maritime history to a renowned state park, wildlife sanctuary, and beach/bay recreation.  With vibrant restaurants and galleries that hold their own with metropolitan areas, we really have something for everyone.  Our residential communities offer the same diverse menu for different tastes.  Full-timers and part-timers can choose from historic homes, traditional beach cottages, or new family retreats – either “in-town” or in a growing number of ‘town center’ neighborhoods that have become communities unto themselves.

 

One of the more unique communities in our area is Paynter’s Mill on Route 1 at Cave Neck Road.  With its traditional architecture and street design, Paynter’s Mill is a community worthy of its namesake, Samuel Paynter, Delaware’s 18th governor.  The maintenance-free community has a distinct personality with stately grounds and green spaces, walking/jogging paths, a beautiful clubhouse, fitness center, pool and playground.  In addition, a growing number of retail and dining options are located in the heart of the community.  Paynter’s Mill is equally close to Milton and Lewes, and just a few miles more to Rehoboth Beach – which makes it a great central location for the full range of Delaware beach activities. 

 

Current opportunities to live in Paynter’s Mill include the following properties for sale through The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group.  These well-priced single family homes and condos offer high-end features, like granite countertops and custom kitchen cabinetry, and combine the benefits of new construction with Delaware’s stately charm. 

 

Experience Paynter’s Mill for yourself and discover yet another unique setting at the beach! (Once you have read the link, just use your browser's "back" button to return to this blog.)

Paradise Found - in Milton!

As we celebrate the birth of our nation this July, it’s a perfect time to take a closer look at Milton – one of the earliest Delaware towns – which has so much to offer! 

While “The First Town in the First State,” designation goes to Lewes, Milton boasts its own, rich historic significance.  The town now called Milton was settled by English colonists about 40 years after Lewes, in 1672.  In 1807, it officially became “Milton,” for the poet John Milton. 

Architectural history fans will certainly see the poetry of the city’s preserved Victorian and Colonial design.  Especially through the 19th century, the Town of Milton thrived as a shipbuilding and button making hub along the banks of the Broadkill River.  This industry enabled development and period style, which is still reflected in the heart of the Historic District; yet Milton retained a distinctly “small town” feel.  Those industries waned through the years, but the heart and charm of the downtown remain. (Milton earned its designation on the National Register of Historic Places on June 25, 1982.)

Whether you are a Delaware Beach local or are looking to relocate to the area, a walk through Milton is definitely worth it!  The historic charm of Kings Ice Cream meets modern industry of Dogfish Head’s craft brewery, among other great stops.  Home prices may be quite a surprise, too.  While inventory is still low throughout the area, The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group currently offers the following charming homes in the always-quaint Town of Milton: 

419 Chestnut Street
