• The value of properties not located in a flood zone should appreciate considerably as the real estate market factors the cost of flood insurance into the buying decision and developers cope with scarce land that does not require flood insurance.   

  • Paved and attractively curved streets with sidewalks, drainage system and street-lighting.

  • Underground power and underground Verizon FIOS service for the fastest Internet, best phone/TV service.

  • Many homeowners look after each other's home when away.

Affordable Living

This single-family home community with wooded background is, as one realtor put it, 'one of a kind' in Sussex County - properties are large enough to provide privacy and yet the community is small enough to offer the neighborly feel of a small community.

View the streetscape of Bay Ridge Woods on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWVIxIPHJKw  - taken in Feb. 2013, hence the bare trees.

Most homes have been built in 2003-2005.  There have only been a small number of resales and only a couple of lots are yet to be developed.

Some houses have one or more bedroom(s) and bathroom(s) on the ground floor.

BRW has a mix of younger families and retired people enjoying the relaxed lifestyle in the First State. Great neighbors. Very Quiet, too! Come check out our community at dusk as well as during the day. If you see a homeowner walking a dog, stop and say, 'Hi.' They will most likely be willing to talk about their proud community.

  • Sussex County, Delaware, has the lowest property taxes of all the most desirable States! The average property tax for these spacious homes is only about $1,200 a year - often $900/yr or less for seniors!! (plus a county sewer fee).

  • 0% sales tax - Tanger Outlet malls, restaurants, and other services.

  • Not considered to be in flood zone, and having fire hydrants in the community, the insurance rates are low.

  • Low Home Owners Association Fee - Currently $480/yr ($40/month). BRW HOA has been self-governing since April 2013 to save property management fees in an effort to build up a healthy Capital Reserve fund, mandated by DE State Laws to fund maintenance of its common areas.
