NAI Emory Hill Sussex County, Delaware Market on the Move!


ot only is spring on the horizon in Sus- sex County, DE; so is

ages continue to move to our coastal area. “ The announcement of the Bayhealth Medical network expansion in Milford and the probability of the Beebe Healthcare expansion in the Rehoboth-Lewes area demon- strate a growing need for med- ical and healthcare facilities and personnel. The need for quality office space is increas- ing as demonstrated by the low vacancy rate of approximately 6-7% along the Rte. 1 corridor. Rental rates vary based on age and location, and generally new space is renting in the $18-$22/s/f range.

Sussex County also saw not only more seasonal, summer visitors than ever before this past year, but an increasing amount of visits during the fall and spring “shoulder” seasons. The attraction continues to be seaside relaxation and recre- ation, low real estate taxes, affordable living costs, and no sales tax. The east-west arterials on Rte. 9, Rte. 24 and Rte. 26 are also growing as the popula- tion further west continues to expand. Infrastructure and services, however, are slower to keep up. Those residents relocating to communities

in western Sussex County also visit the coast to enjoy entertainment, the beach, boardwalk, restaurants and charitable and social events. Growth poses challenges, and from May until October there is increased traffic not only on Rtes. 1 but on Rte. 9, 24 and 26. However, DelDOT road improvements are taking place with sidewalk construc- tion on Rte. 1 and road widen- ing on Rte. 26. Retail development is also increasing, with more activity along the Rte. 1 corridor from the Nassau Bridge to Dewey Beach. Rental rates remain

solid and range from $18-$23/ SF, again, depending on age and location. “Look for more national retailers to enter our market, another sure sign of positive growth,” Bailey said.

“We are experiencing a rise in rental rates in both the office and retail sector, not only along the Rte. 1 tourist corridor but along the east- west arterials as well,” Bailey said. “Steady economic growth in the region is driving this increase as more people of all NAI Emory Hill lists two new major residential devs. for sale in Kent County Kent County , DE — Two new major mixed-use residential developments are coming to Kent County: Homestead, a 182-acre site in Milford, and Spring Hall, a 238-acre site in Frederica.
