Are you looking for an idyllic new home in a scenic location? From the stunning beaches to the cozy little seaside towns, there are tons of reasons why people love living in Delaware! 

Whether you’re thinking of moving or just want more information about life as a Delawarian, we’re sharing the best reasons to make coastal living in Delaware your reality.
Caruso Homes is a home builder that specializes in building semi-custom homes near the Delmarva Peninsula. We’ve been crafting new homes for decades and are committed to providing our customers with quality, luxurious homes.  

Here are the top reasons to make your move to the coast!

New Home Buyers

If you’re looking for the perfect first home or a fresh place to raise your family, Delaware is a great option. From breathtaking state parks and pristine beaches, the environment offers plenty for newcomers to see and do! 

Delaware is the second-smallest state in the US and is situated close to several major markets. That makes commuting easy for job seekers. The job market is growing steadily, and Delaware is home to major employers including AstraZeneca, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Dover Air Force Base. And with easy access to neighboring states, the career possibilities are endless!

The cost of living is lower than many other states in the Northeast and housing is affordable, allowing young families to maintain a budget-friendly lifestyle. And for those with school-aged children, Delaware has some of the best schools in the country.

For first time home buyers or those looking for something smaller, the cottage-style Ashland floor plan is a great option. If you need more room for your growing family, the Pemberton floor plan is a favorite that offers an expansive layout and plenty of flexibility to add space.

Next Home Buyers

Delaware is the perfect destination for second home and vacation home buyers. It has some of the best beaches in the country, with miles of beautiful coastline to explore by foot or kayak. 

Charming coastal towns like Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach and Dewey Beach offer sightseeing, dining, shopping and seasonal events. Plus, it’s only a two hour drive to Philadelphia, PA and Washington, D.C., making weekend excursions and day trips a welcome activity.


 
For those wanting a secluded weekend away at the beach, the Hayes floor plan is a wonderful option. It can be crafted with a cozy, single-story design or expanded with a second floor loft and additional bedrooms for guests.



Forever Home Buyers

Hiking, golfing, biking, and fishing are just a few of the big draws for active retirees. Spending your golden years in this state means you get to enjoy major financial benefits. Besides the general low state taxes, the over 55+ crowd has other incentives; like tax-free social security, special deductions, and a $12,000 income exclusion. That means the nest egg you’ve worked hard for can be invested in your future and that of your children and grandchildren.

Caruso Homes recently explored the benefits of retiring in Delaware. You can view the article here.



Active retirees in Delaware love our Jefferson floor plan. This 3-bedroom rancher style home offers everything you need on one level, but if separate space is important to you, a second story can be added with an extra bedroom and large loft area for your grandkids!
