Tax Benefits

Delaware is consistently ranked as a top tax-friendly state, and for good reason! No state or local sales tax. No personal property tax. No inheritance tax. In fact, Kiplinger Personal Finance Magazine named Delaware as one of the most tax-friendly states for retirees!

A Retirement Oasis

Property taxes on a 2,000 square foot home in Delaware will run in the range of $125/month (less than 10% of the tax on an equivalent home in New Jersey). Sussex County Delaware is tied for second among all U.S. counties for the lowest ratio of median annual property tax to home value. This means that the percent of your home value devoted to property taxes will be about as low as it can be.

Whether you’re considering buying a permanent or secondary home in Delaware, one of the first things you’ll consider is how close you’ll be to quality Delaware healthcare facilities. While the beach itself has innumerable healing qualities, we all want to know that our health needs will be attended to by the best of the best. The good news is, in addition to being within driving distance of some of the best hospitals on the East Coast, Delaware healthcare has bragging rights to its own award-winning hospitals by way of Beebe Healthcare.

Rehoboth Beach

Rehoboth Beach is known for its boardwalk, specialty stores, amusements, tax-free shopping, and some of the finest restaurants in Coastal Delaware! Nationally recognized for its pristine beaches and vibrant local culture, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in Rehoboth.

Imagine living in your favorite vacation spot all year. Summer or winter, beach life is the best!


This quaint town is a perennial favorite for those who savor history, local charm, and unanticipated discoveries. The heart of Lewes is filled with boutique shops, restaurants, and museums. Plus, it’s home to the beloved Cape-May Lewes Ferry and nationally ranked Beebe Healthcare.

Delaware is truly a small wonder and I am certainly glad my family and I live here to experience it.


Lovingly known as ‘The Quiet Resort’, Bethany Beach is primed for family-friendly fun with its Boardwalk, Bandstand, local entertainment and beach bonfires. Dining, shopping, outdoor activities, festivals, and events keep local and visitors busy year-round.

Fenwick Island

Tucked away between Ocean City and Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island is a coastal haven, with quiet beaches, neighborhood businesses, and endless opportunities for outdoor adventure and family fun.


Year-Round Comfort

Since almost all of Delaware is a part of the Atlantic Coastal Plain, the effects of the ocean moderate its climate. Sussex County, located in the southern portion of the state, has a somewhat milder climate and a longer growing season than the northern area. Average high temperatures in the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach resort area are 84 degrees in July, 78 degrees in September and 48 degrees in December. Throughout the year, over half of the days will be filled with sunshine.

Love the beach? So do we! Delaware boasts some of the best and cleanest beaches in the nation, including Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach, Lewes and Fenwick Island. It’s no wonder so many flock here in the summer months. We’re fairly certain that there’s nothing a trip to the beach and the sweet smell of the ocean can’t cure.

Water, Water, Everywhere

Delaware has about 26 miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline, 25 miles of Delaware Bay coastline, and 115 miles of inland bay shoreline. You’ll enjoy sunrises and sunsets, depending on which way you turn!

Coastal Delaware offers a relaxed environment that is close to the action of the East Coast’s major metropolitan regions, while providing a vibrant culture and active lifestyle all its own. The location affords easy access to the major metropolitan areas of the Northeast. Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Baltimore are all within a two-hour drive.
