Expect More From Oceanfront Delaware Homes For Sale

With so much variety on offer, it's truly difficult to generalize about oceanfront Delaware real estate. Whatever you're looking for, chances are you'll find it in these listings. Single family homes, town homes, and many types of condominiums are available for those seeking oceanfront property, and some areas even have parcels of land available for building custom homes. Additionally, country club living and gated communities are also popular choices, and properties directly on the water are particularly desirable.

Waterfront property in MarylandHousing sizes along the Delaware coast range from one bedroom to over five bedrooms, and prices tend to start in the low to mid $200,000s and range to well over $1,000,000. Many homes are used as vacation rental properties, except in areas where homeowners' associations prohibit rentals, so if you're looking for an income property this is an excellent region to invest too. Typically, oceanfront Delaware homes for sale are designed with vacation-style living in mind, even if owners will be residing here throughout the year. This means builders tend to place emphasis on big, bright windows, wrap-around decks, swimming pools, and more.

The age of a home is a major factor for homebuyers, and again you've got many choices. It's possible to find historical character homes that date back to the region's agricultural past—Colonial homes and Farmhouses frequently fit this bill—but brand new builds in masterplanned community are also quite common. For those looking for a vacation home without maintenance requirements, a number of gorgeous coastal condo buildings can also be found in places like Ocean City and offer beach access and spectacular views along with a host of luxury amenities.

Living on the Delaware Coast

The communities of the Delaware coast are as varied as the people who call it home. Whether you're looking for excitement or serenity, you'll find it nearby. For instance, Dewey Beach is a small town with a permanent population of just 341, according to the 2010 Census. The town offers approximately 1/12 miles of beach front and covers 22 blocks. And Fenwick Island is another small coastal town with a permanent population of 379. Fenwick Island and the neighboring Bethany Beach areas are known as being the quieter resort locations. These are all great places for retirees or families looking to avoid crowds by living a little bit off the beaten path.

On the other hand, each summer Ocean City transforms into the second most populated municipality in Maryland, after Baltimore. And the small incorporated city of Rehoboth Beach has a population reported to be 1,327, but, during the summer months, the population increases to more than 25,000. And, similarly, Lewes, Delaware is an incorporated city surrounded by Gordon Pond and the Gordon Pond Wildlife area. In 2010, Lewes reported a population of 2,747, but again that population balloons when the weather gets nice. These areas are known for boardwalks with numerous activities during the tourist season, and they're great for anyone who wants to keep busy and loves to people watch.

Wherever you choose to live in oceanfront Delaware, and whatever you choose to do there, you'll have access to the region's many natural wonders, leisure activities made possible by golf courses and the marinas, and tons of modern conveniences accessible along the Coastal Highway.
