Truitt Homestead is a leasehold, condominium community. The land is owned by the Truitt family (the “landlord”), the long-time owners of the property dating back to 1908. The father of the current owners left the property to his sons in trust with a restriction that the property could not be sold. For that reason, the developer of Truitt Homestead entered into a long-term lease (99-years, the longest term lease permissible under Delaware law) with the Truitt’s and is sub-leasing the property to the homeowners. As a result, some areas, like those immediately outside of one’s home, are designated as "limited common elements" for the exclusive use of the homeowner. The individual ground lease payments are $375 per quarter.

Property Taxes

Property taxes typically range from $1,000 to $2,000 per year (yes, per year, not per month). We know that seems too low to be true ;). Delaware also has no sales tax and consistently ranks in the top 5 for the most tax-friendly states.
