I don't live there, but work there quite often. In my opinion, that's the next building boom along the Bay. It happened to Broadkill, and lot prices escalated there. I think Primehook is very nice with great possibilities, and the older homes are being refurbished or replaced. If I was looking for a Bay property, Primehook would be my choice, or Fowler's Beach. Quiet now, but give it 10 years and the lots won't be affordable.

Delly,
In 10 years, my home may be a beach front home. the rising waters will no doubt alter our coast line.

You could be right, Eliza
Our son lives in Milford and out-of-staters think that's "almost" the beach, now! I used to have the actual percentages of beach and bay front that's getting washed away each year, but don't know where that is now. What I think is hilarious is the "waterfront" lots in subdivisions that are being sold to those not knowing any better. Those lots are located along storm water drainage ponds/facilities, required by the counties as part of their open space plan. Waterfront lot? I don't think so. They catch the run-off from the other lots and streets and breed mosquitoes.

It was the joke when we lived in Northeast Philly 2 blocks from the Delaware river, That our home in Philly could be a beach front home.
My daughter thinks eventually the delmarva peninsula could be a thing of the past. She is an Environmental major. Who knows, huh? I"m hoping we can find a solution to slow down the effects of global warming if not some day reverse them.

I have not wanted to live right on the water due to flooding. you never know these days and it is too risky.
Here in SM, some residents who live in front of a pond are e complaining about mosquitos . Some are getting screened in porches because of this problem.
Where we are, it is not bad. They paid extra for a pond view in the back of their home and now they put up with mosquitos.

Yes, I know. It's certainly not a lot premium, but I'm sure they've been told that. What is it they say?....If you repeat something long enough, people start believing it?

Yes this is probably true. Great sales pitch isn't it.
