True. Many of the Lots in Bethany Beach West of Rt 1 have been on the market for a while. As a Builder I do see potential for Lot/Home packages that can be completed with equity based on the Bank's final appraisal. ... more

It all depends on the property but homes are selling at all price points in Bethany Beach and we appear to be in a stabilizing market.

This question gets asked every few months, and I will say the same thing I have been saying for years. If you would have asked me this question in 2002 or 2003, when rates really started to drop, I would have told you that the next year they would be back up to 8.5%. Every time I say that they can't drop any more, they do.
For those who quote 2.75%, that is on a 5 year ARM, so I wouldn't want people thinking that is the way to go, and it can be very dangerous for the wrong person.
I have someone right now who I am refinancing into a $900,000 10 year fixed (not a 10/1 ARM) for 3.5% with very low closing costs. He wanted to know why would a bank go that low? You can see the answer in Ron's response, the banks are paying 1.5%, or less, on deposit money. So, who's getting the good deal? And, they are getting all their money paid back in only 10 years.
