Hi, I am considering a position with a company that is located in Seaford or the Seaford area.

I was supposed to get some real estate info sent my way, but it hasnt arrived yet. Wondering what areas of DE. would be good to look for housing. We would be relocating from Gloucester Co, NJ, and would be looking for a newer home with at least 1 acre of ground.

Not really sure what areas/towns to start looking in that would allow an easy commute..say 30-40 minutes would be ok. Maybe somewhere in between Seaford and the shore areas?

Any advice would be appreciated. We are novices on De!

Thanks,

J

Looking on the homes site I use, it looks like you are looking at anywhere between 180K and low to mid 200K for a home in the surrounding towns.

I have never been down to Seaford so i don't know how suitable the surrounding towns are, but the prices look reasonable to me! 240K for 3 bd 2 bath 1500 sq ft home on 1+ acres seems the average for a new built home there, of course you can go a lot higher if you want a really fancy home. I don't see the need to go over 300K from what I am looking at though.

I am sure you will find the prices less expensive than NJ, and the taxes much cheaper as well..

Happy househunting!

Default Seaford

hi jtm,

I grew up in Seaford Delaware. Unfortunately, I don't know the current real estate market in that area. For me, Seaford was a great place to grow up. Check out the Laurel (south of Seaford) and Bridgeville (north of Seaford) real estate markets as well.

I gotta ask....Patty Cannon Estates???? I wonder why any developer would use that name.

The history of Patty Cannon is not nice. I wonder who was in charge of this project? Weird.
