As buyers consider their housing needs into their retirement years, there’s been an overwhelming interest in Active Adult 55+ communities. Delaware builders have been focusing on this trend over the past decade and there have been numerous 55+ communities built in the Bear, Newark and MIddletown areas.. These communities offer mostly open-concept ranch style homes with lots of amenities like clubhouses, pools, walking trails and managed lawn care. These neighborhoods are within close proximity to quality medical care facilities, shopping, entertainment and the I-95 corridor. Delaware also has some of the lowest property taxes in the region compared to its neighbors in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland, and is the home of tax-free shopping. If you’d like more information on any of these communities, please contact Team O’Donnell at 302-598-0189.
