Do a search for Lewes, you may get more info - and go on Moderator cut: real estate advertising link removed and put in your info (price, #bedrooms, #baths etc) and you can get an idea as far as what to expect. Noticed you also posted in the NJ forum, you'll likely get more value for your money in DE. JMO.

Hi Sandyhair,

Welcome to the DE forum; and Honeycrisp gave you some excellent advise regarding Moderator cut: real estate advertising link removed. We learned quite a bit about the area last year when we first moved to the state.

You can also search this forum, once you have a better idea what part of the state you're interested in. As has been posted before, DE, even though it is small, is quite different in each county. The northernmost county (New Castle) is more metropolitan, while the southern county (Sussex) is a blend of "beachy" and "country". Kent County, in the middle, is a good blend of it all. A bit metro with Dover, yet some shore, and country as well.

Keep reading the previous posts, and ask what you don't find. Good luck with your search, and keep us posted.

Mary

$300,000 will buy you a very nice house in Kent or Sussex County. The median price range in Kent County is much less than that.

Hi Sandyhair,

On behalf of everyone in the thread, you're welcome! You didn't mention what state your kids are in, but I can already relate to wanting to be closer to them!

Just out of curiosity, I see you have DE and NJ listed, and then GA? Having moved to DE from the south, I don't know that I ever recalled hearing about GA being particularly good for retirement. I may be wrong, so please enlighten me (and anyone else who just has not asked).

Mary

My son and his family live in the suburbs of Atlanta,GA. They are a young family and live in a beautiful area in Cobb County. The real estate taxes are more favorable then in PA and his inlaws also moved there and will be retiring in a couple of years. They are all quite happy with their decision to relocate to GA. The only downside is rush hour traffic. For a retiree, that shouldn't be a problem.
