If you've ever sold a home or property, then you no doubt realize that it's a MUCH different experience than being on the buyer's end of the transaction.

Instead of being the ones roaming the area and looking at dozens of local properties, you're basically trying to make one property look as nice and inviting as you possibly can. And your real estate agent of choice is doing everything he or she can to get potential buyers in the door.

But speaking of potential buyers - do you ever wonder what's going in their heads? What makes them tick? Why do they do what they do?

It today's blog entry here on luxuryhomesdelaware.com, we're going to explore some of the more frequent issues that buyers often experience during the negotiation process, some of

So you've signed on the dotted line and sold your family home, ready to move on to the next stage in your life. That's great - we hope you got everything you wanted out of the selling process.

But now what? Well you're going to have to do what so many of us dread, and that's packing up all of your belongings and moving everything you own to a new location, most likely in a new town, city and/or community.

So today, we're going to at least make the chore a little bit easier by giving you some tips and ideas on the moving process. With a little homework and some due diligence, this process doesn't have to be as bad as it

Now that you've decided to put your home on the market, you may be thinking about going it alone, without the help of a licensed REALTOR. Many people consider this regularly, but it's almost always an unwise decision in the long run.

REALTORS are full-fledged members of the National Association of REALTORS (NAR) and take a pledge to live by a certain code of ethics. They are required to keep their clients needs in the forefront at all times and to never, under any circumstances, violate these ethical requirements.

In today's blog entry here on www.luxuryhomesdelaware.com, we're going to give you a few reasons why the input you receive along the way from a licensed REALTOR is invaluable, and why hiring the right agent to sell your home could be one

It's pretty well known around the region that Delaware features tax-free shopping, the only state in the mid-Atlantic and one of only five in the country that does. And we'll save you a Google search - Alaska, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon are the others.

But what's not well known are some of the other tax benefits of living in Delaware's southernmost county, though these advantages have been introduced to many more people in recent years.

I mean, there's a reason why Sussex is the fastest growing county in the state and why so many retirees and second homeowners have chosen to buy property here.

And that sentence should give you a hint - it's the low property taxes! 

But we're getting ahead of ourselves. In this blog entry, we're

For generations, people young and old have preached about the health benefits of living at the beach, breathing the salt air, laying in the sun and generally just feeling more relaxed on a regular basis.

If you’ve ever wondered whether or not this admittedly unproven theory has any merit, Ocean City Realtor John McAdams may help you make up your mind.

Down 50 pounds since his move to the beach in 2011, McAdams now weighs the same as he did as a high school senior in 1981. He also boasts higher energy levels, a much lower cholesterol rate and a brighter outlook on life.

It’s a life that could be a whole lot different in 2018, if not for the permanent move to the beach and the advent of a healthier lifestyle.

If you've never purchased a home before, or perhaps not for many years, we know it can be a bit of a daunting and overwhelming process.

There are so many homes to choose from, in countless neighborhoods scattered over numerous cities and towns.
