Townhomes at Darley Green Take the Stress Out of Buying a Home

So you’re on the couch in your one bedroom rental apartment washed out after a hard day of work and a long commute home. The neighbor next door is blasting Wagner’s “Flight of the Valkyries” right through the paper-thin walls. You look around and realize you’re literally being squeezed out the door by an accumulation of toys, strollers, playpens, bikes, dogs, and whatever else you’ve dragged home and not figured out how to get rid of.

Extreme? Not really. But it may finally be the right time to start thinking about building a life together in a new home. Don Robitzer, one of the leading home builders in Delaware understands that one of the most cherished American Dreams for many of us is the simple vision of raising a family in a comfortable home in a quiet, safe neighborhood. If you’ve been watching the real estate market and conscientiously putting your money away for a down payment, you know it may now be a perfect time to buy.

Marti Steele Kilby, a real estate broker/owner with Steele Group Realty in La Mesa, CA , recently wrote a piece in Forbes, “Home Buying as a Couple? Here’s How to Avoid a Break-Up”about some simple common-sense steps to keep the stress level down when a couple decides to buy their first home.

Tips for buying your first home as a couple

The first step will save you worlds of grief later. Have a frank discussion about what each of you wants in a home and understand where you’re willing to compromise. Being willing to listen and give and take is perhaps the most important key to buying a home you’ll both love.

The second is to put yourselves in a position to buy by ordering your credit reports and speaking with a mortgage professional. He or she will help you position yourselves as buyers that a lender will want to do business with.

Take a hard look at your budget and decide what you are really going to be comfortable with in terms of monthly costs. A realistic self-appraisal now of your capabilities is essential. Pie in the sky projections of new jobs and promotions that might not happen is a recipe for trouble.

If you see a home you really like, chances are that someone else really likes it too. Talk it over between you, listen to your mortgage professional, and make a realistic offer before it’s gone and you’re disappointed.

Once the seller has accepted your offer, be on time with any requested documentation and you’ll have a stress free closing. Remember—communicate honestly with each other throughout the process and have some fun! It’s your new home!

For the easiest, most stress-free process of all, take a drive to nearby Darley Green and see the American Dream come to life in its delightful small town atmosphere.

Small Town Living Meets Modern Day Conveniences at Darley Green


Philadelphia townhomes that capture the American Dream

Let’s face it. The world is moving faster and changing more rapidly than any of us could have ever imagined, and sometimes we’re not too crazy about that. We look at our kids, and they’re on to the next thing before we know what the first thing was. Sometimes, we catch ourselves just wishing we could slow everything down for a while and just catch a break. Catch a rerun of the great old Andy Griffith Show, and at least some us of wish Mayberry, Barney, and Aunt Bea still existed out there somewhere.

The master planners of Darley Green’s delightful and charming townhome and condo community clearly understand how deeply the American Dream is rooted in the pace and serenity of small town living. The outstanding Montchanin design team of lifestyle experts, architects and landscape planners has created in Darley Green a true “neighborhood” where gracious townhomes nestle in along leafy tree-lined streets.

Try the 160,000 square foot National Constitution Center or the Benjamin Franklin Museum in the Historic District. The Liberty Bell has a new home in the Liberty Bell Center. The venerable Franklin Museum, one of the oldest science museums in the country, and the Philadelphia Museum of Artwith 300,000 works spanning 200 years also await you.

Philadelphia also has one of the most amazing collections of parks and gardens in the country. Make sure you visit Longwood Gardens and its feel of a giant royal European garden. Fairmount Park, one of the world’s largest park systems, is a staggering 9,200 acres of trails, woodlands, and rolling hills, for horseback riding, off road biking, and off the grid hiking.

Condominiums at Darley Green Bring the American Dream to Life

Condos for sale near Wilmington, Delaware

Nowhere is the American Dream more evident than in our long-cherished desire for home ownership. Single or married, younger or more mature, owning our own home is a statement that we’ve arrived. It shows that we’ve attained a level of financial comfort where we can now afford to set down roots for ourselves and our loved ones. The townhomes and condominiums at Darley Green are this American Dream come to life. Montchanin Builders, premier home builders in Delaware making it easier for families to achieve their dreams.

Darley Green is a delightful master-planned community of gracious yet highly affordable condominiums and townhomes for sale in Delaware just five minutes from downtown Wilmington, DE and a quick twenty minute drive to Philadelphia. If you want to make your dream of ownership a reality, these affordable new condos in Delaware may be your answer.

Should I be thinking condo or house?

Both condos and houses will give an owner the same satisfying sense of permanence and security of ownership. But there are practical differences that may make one more suitable than the other.

The classic American house is a free standing home, be it Colonial, ranch style, contemporary, or Cape Cod, with a yard, a garage, and a lawn—perhaps even a picket fence. It can be an expensive custom-built mansion on a couple of acres, or it might be a cute two bedroom cottage in a neighborhood with houses close together.

A condominium, on the other hand, can be a charming 400 square foot studio apartment in a little building downtown or a sprawling loft with as much square footage and as many bedrooms and baths as a house.

The way smart buyers are choosing to own is changing

To those owners who’ve decided that condo living is right for them, a condo accomplishes everything a house does but with few of the tradeoffs. They’ll tell you that unless you’re buying a new custom built house, you’re buying someone else’s design and someone else’s dream.

The layouts of the condominiums at Darley Green are your dream—custom-designed by you to suit your lifestyle and your needs. Need a two bedroom with a home office and a breakfast room? The design experts at Darley Green will help you choose a floor plan that is perfectly suited to how you live.

The condominiums at Darley Green are maintenance free

Unlike a condo, a house and its surrounding property need to be maintained. If the furnace goes out, you better know how to get it going again. If the siding needs a paint job or the drainpipes get clogged, either climb a ladder to do it yourself or hire someone to do it for you. Owning a house has its appeal, but the high level of maintenance is a definite price to pay.

The new condos in Delaware at Darley Green are completely maintenance-free. When the leaves are falling in autumn, you don’t need to think about raking them. It’s done for you. If the Polar Vortex brings another foot of white stuff, forget the shovel and the snow blower. Just curl up on your couch with a cup of coffee while we take care of clearing the snow.

If you’re wondering if one of the new condos in Delaware at Darley Green might be right for you, then call Amy Meluski at 302-655-2600 and let her show you how condo ownership can be the fulfillment of your American Dream.
