Now is the Time!

The Spring Countdown in ON

Here at the beach, as soon as the holidays fade, we start counting down. Spring is only 4 weeks away, but our local weather often has us skipping right to summer! Yet even with the ‘wintry mix’ of a pandemic and recent icy weather, the real estate market has remained unbelievably strong. I cannot stress exactly how strong.

I have been fortunate to be involved in the majority of the property sales in the Lewes & Rehoboth Beach areas for over 3 decades, but I have truly never experienced a market like this one.

Our sellers are receiving multiple offers within days - sometimes hours - of their homes being placed on the market, and in many cases they are selling for over the asking price.

Last weekend, we scheduled nearly 20 showings for one of our new listings in Rehoboth Beach Yacht & Country Club the first day it was in the MLS.

And homes throughout Coastal Delaware, at all price points, are in high demand. Homes in Peninsula Lakes, Retreat at Love Creek, Beachaven, this list goes on...received contracts practically immediately last week.

Not surprisingly, this market has created record-low inventory – and this is always to a seller’s advantage.


If you have any interest in selling your home, now is definitely the time.


Reasons for our current market conditions include:

- Record-low interest rates for home financing
- Counter urbanization - people from larger cities starting to flock more towards rural and “off the beaten path” locations (like Southern Delaware)
- More remote work environments
- Sussex County’s ever-low property taxes
