Sussex County Shows Market Strengths
The Sussex County Association of Realtors (SCAOR) recently released housing data from the second quarter of 2014 – and it’s good news for single-family homes in our county!
From April to June of this year, sales for single-family homes increased more than 14% over measurements from the same time period in 2013. It was also reported that average sales prices increased 12% over last year’s second quarter! This is a welcomed improvement, especially when many states haven’t been as fortunate as Delaware has been. This is definitely a wonderful state to call home!
Not only are the improvements in the housing market evident year-over-year, but quarter-to-quarter as well. Nearly 400 more homes were sold in Sussex County during the second quarter of this year when compared to the first. This adds up to nearly $469 million worth of real estate “changing hands” during the first half of 2014 alone.
Brad Riedle, 2014 SCAOR president, notes that we’re seeing “a market that is showing continuous and sustained growth, and that’s what we’re looking for in this new economic environment.” He continues on to say that “we’re feeling more confident with each passing quarter that we are on a good long-term path.”
With this incredible upward trend, and positive outlooks for the future, more and more homebuyers are feeling confident jumping into the Sussex County housing market. And when they begin their home search, they know exactly where to look - Baywood Greens, of course!
