Can anyone recommend a gated adult community in Delaware?

Asked by Christine Markow, Reseda, CA Wed Jan 28, 2009

I have a client here in NJ who's looking to relocate to Delaware somewhere between her relatives in Milford, DE and Linden, NJ (I know wide spread) but she's looking for a gated 55 community and prefers single family 2 bedrooms versus townhome - anyone have personal references? suggested communities?

Help the community by answering this question:


I took a look at both Delaware MLS's. The only gated communitys I found in that price range were manufacactured housing in Millsboro starting at 59,000 & 3650 per year lot rent . I have been in a very nice, almost new 3 bedroom home in Potnets that is down to 68,500 with 5623 per year lot rent. The tax is 382 a year. That is about 35 miles from Milford, but close to the beach. The lowest price I saw other than that is a 2 bedroom 55 plus town home in Milford with security for 180K. The 280/Q condo fee includes snow removal, pool, club house, & more. Has a 1 car garage and elevator. The tax is listed at $586. Call if you need any more info. Steve Fisher (302) 507-7550

Thank you for your answer - I will be in touch within the next couple of days (I want to be able to discuss in greater detail and I have a few obligations to focus on in the next few days). Her main concern were the taxes of course - she knows her nephew in Milford, DE is paying something like $900 a year compared to our $5,000 a year so that's what's drawing her to DE but if you have more information about the PA market as well, I'd appreciate it. She's trying to stay between $100,000 - $150,000 - but I'm not familiar wih the DE (or PA) market.

Hi Christine - we have some outstanding 55+ communities in DE, however depending on the price range, gated communities are not as common. I just left you a voicemail, so if you'd like to discuss further price and other details, I can be reached at 302-740-5872. I'd also happy to honor any referral arrangements you'd like to consider. Sincerely, John Luca Prudential Fox & Roach Realtors. 302-999-9999.
