The Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty will host two open house events this weekend, in various locations throughout southern Delaware. Both will be hosted by our very own Pamela Foster.

If you're looking for a home near the beaches, this is a great chance for you to get outside and take a look at these featured homes. Both are close enough to the beach to enjoy the coastal lifestyle, but far enough enough away to allow for a bit lower selling price.

Here's where we'll be this weekend...

Located at 10293 Fox Glen Drive in Bridgeville, the first home open for viewing this weekend is a three bedroom, two bathroom property nestled on more than three-quarters of an acre in western Sussex County.

Southern Delaware natives and long-time residents have no doubt heard stories like the Oldfather Group's Sue Huntington’s before, tales of people who grew up visiting the Delaware beaches in their youth, before moving to the area permanently in later years.

But Sue’s story is a bit different – she may live in historic Milton now, but there are things she observes and people she encounters every day that remind her of a certain small town in central Pennsylvania where she lived as a young girl.

And after wrapping up a career working for the United States government, that’s exactly what she was looking for.

“I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania called Nescopeck, which is south of Scranton, and Milton reminds me of my home town every day,”

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the “Weekender Blog,” as always brought to you by the real estate professionals at the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty.

We hope everyone got out last weekend and enjoyed the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival and Bridgeville’s Apple Scrapple Festival, two of the greatest annual events our area has to offer.

We actually find ourselves in a bit of a lull this third full weekend in October, sandwiched between all of the excitement of last week and another busy weekend on deck, when the Sea Witch Halloween and Fiddler’s Festival takes center stage in coastal Delaware.

But there are still some great happenings scheduled for the next few days, most notably the Boo-B-Que By

If you've ever wanted to live east of Route 1 and be just a leisurely stroll away from all of the action in Rehoboth Beach, then this week's "Home of the Week" is one you're definitely going to want to take a closer look at.

Located in the fabulous Grande at Canal Pointe community, this home has many great features that make it an intelligent buy in today's market. And we're going to tell you much more about it in just a few moments.

But first, just a reminder that we still have a few more weeks left in southern Delaware's 2017 fall festival season. We've had some great events since Labor Day, including the Nanticoke Indian Powwow, the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival, Coast Day, Ocean City Sunfest and Bridgeville's Apple Scrapple Festival.

Two gems of southern Delaware’s fall festival season take center stage this weekend as both the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival and Bridgeville’s Apple Scrapple Festival return for their 2017 runs.

Each festival draws thousands of visitors from throughout Delaware, as well as surrounding states, and contribute significantly to the local economy during the so-called “extended season” between Labor Day and mid-November.

There are other events on the schedule as well, most notably the CAMP Rehoboth Block Party on Baltimore Avenue, but these two are certainly the belles of the ball for the next few days here in coastal Delaware.

It's hard to believe that we're already closing in on the middle of October here in the coastal region, and that the holiday season is right around the corner.

But the calendar doesn't lie, so I guess it'll soon be time for breaking out the winter clothes and settling in for the cold weather season. But, before we arrive at that "destination," if you will, we still have several things to look forward to in the local area.

And one of the first is Halloween, more specifically Rehoboth Beach's wildly popular Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddler's Festival. This annual event, which brings thousands of visitors to the area for the autumn "extended season," is scheduled for Oct. 27-29 in the resort, so be sure to check that out.

Another week, another full schedule of great local events scheduled for the coastal region.

It's been a fantastic fall festival season so far, and there's still plenty more to come. In addition to everything you'll read about in this week's blog, many other big events are still to come during the rest of October.

These include the Apple Scrapple Festival in Bridgeville, the Rehoboth Jazz Festival in Rehoboth Beach and the Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddler's Festival, also in Rehoboth Beach, in addition to many others.

EDITOR'S NOTE: If you haven't already heard, World Championship Punkin Chunkin has been cancelled for 2017 and it's future remains uncertain. So if you had this event marked on your calendar for early November, please be advised that it

Today's Oldfather Group "Home of the Week" once again takes us to the town of Millsboro, located just a short drive inland from southern Delaware's most popular coastal communities.

While a short distance away from the local beach resorts, there are several advantages to buying a bit further inland. And that includes a pretty significant one - getting a better value for your real estate spending dollar.

While not a beach community, Millsboro is one of the finest towns in southern Delaware, with a lot to offer. And there are many fine residential communities in the general area, including Stonewater Creek, which is where you'll find this week's featured home.

Here's the Oldfather Group's Bob Burton to tell you at bit more about this exquisite
