Whether you are a potential homeowner looking for a lot for sale or a builder or developer seeking land for sale for your next project, the perfect property for you may be found in Delaware. Nothing is very far away in Delaware, the second-smallest state in the country. Only 96 miles from north to south, and a width ranging from 9 to 35 miles, Delaware has a lot to offer in a small space. The largest city of Wilmington is at the top of the state, followed in population by the capital city, Dover, then Newark, and Pipe Creek. But the big stars may be the beach towns along the bottom half of the state: Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany, Lewes, and Fenwick Island. Rehoboth and Dewey beaches were two of only 12 beaches in the country to receive a 5-star rating from the Natural Resources Defense Council, which monitors environmental quality control. The two areas are within walking distance of one another and are touted as family-friendly areas with easy access to shopping at the “mile of style” at nearby Tanger Outlet Center. Shopping is tax-free in Delaware, which is a big draw for visitors. The state’s tax laws are also favorable to businesses; more than 300,000 companies and 200,000 other business are incorporated there. The government is Delaware’s largest employer, including a significant contingency at Dover Air Force Base. Banking, pharmaceutical and chemical sectors are also influential here, with MBNA recently usurping DuPont’s long-held position as the state’s biggest private employer. Agriculture brings in more than a billion dollars to the state annually, with major crops of corn, soybeans and wheat. The bottom half of the state enjoys a longer growing season than the north, generally having milder weather throughout the year. Winter months are cold and annual snowfall averages from a high of 20 inches around Wilmington in the upper tip of the state, to only 9 inches in the southern coastal areas. Besides beaches and shopping, Delaware’s attractions include the 16,000 acre Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, the 36-site Delaware History Trail, an impressive list of festivals that span the state and the calendar, and the unique two-for-one race track at Dover International Speedway – built to accommodate both NASCAR and horse racing in one facility.
