In late March, we wrote about all of the wonderful reasons we choose to build our coastal homes in Sussex County, Delaware. Citing the nearby beaches, charming small towns and relaxed lifestyle as a few of the major draws to the area, Sussex County is also known for its tax-friendliness.

Recently, U.S. News outlined the best and worst markets for property taxes in the United States.  And, those enjoying the tax benefits in Delaware weren’t too surprised to learn that Sussex County ranks first on the “Best” list!

With property tax on a single-family residence averaging at $652 in 2014 and an effective tax rate at only 0.23%, being a homeowner in this remarkable county pays off in a big way. Having an endless list of things to do and places to see, along with reaping the benefits of a tax-friendly state in a beautiful new house, townhome or condo, it’s no wonder why Christopher Companies’ residents enjoy calling Delaware their home.

Our new homes in Delaware include single-family homes at Millville By The SeaBaywood Greens and the Cove at Sandy Landing, condominiums in Fenwick Island at Laguna Bay, and townhomes at Wharton’s Bluff.  Every model is designed in classic coastal style, with Christopher Companies’ exquisite attention to detail and appreciation for homebuilding evident in every feature.

With an outstanding selection of new home models, stunning communities and the favorable tax benefits of owning a home in Delaware, buyers in Sussex County can say that they have found their new home with Christopher Companies!
