As an agent in Delaware I am constantly doing deals in Middletown. My clients usually like the open space with the abilitly to still be able to drive back and forth to work without breaking the bank. Appoquinimink School district is new and well funded and overall that area is becoming more and more popular. Feel free to check out and compare School Districts for free on our webpage http://www.delpagroup.net
I have lived in Middletown for over 8 years and have found it to be a very great place to live. I have two children who go the Appoquinimink School district which you can do research on to see what the system has to offer for your family. My husband and I are both full time real estate agents with Keller Williams Realty. You can visit my website at http://www.de-real.com and see what type of homes are in the area available right now. It also lets you link to some of the websites within the state that may help in your choices in moving to Delaware and also the school district site itself. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions and if I can help in any way. My cell is 302-632-0121
There many professional who have moved to this area to get away from all the "hustle and bustle". However, if quiet and not so built up is more your style, Smyrna is most likely going to be the next Middletown. I know that the long term plan for Middletown is to grow it and have it be like a Metropolis like Wilmington. We are close to all major highways and local attractions. We are close to Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York.
