Top 10 Reasons To Buy Darley Green Townhouses and Condos
Searching for townhouses in Wilmington Delaware?
If you’re a prospective homebuyer looking for affordable luxury and every convenience, look no further than the Darley Green condos and townhouses in the Claymont Renaissance district near Wilmington, Delaware. This master-planned community captures the atmosphere of old-fashioned small town life, set amid ample green space and thriving local businesses within walking distance. Here are 10 reasons to consider investing in homes or condominiums at Darley Green.
1. Low Prices
Townhomes and condos start in the low $200sat Darley Green. According to Trulia, the average home list price in Wilmington, Delaware is $259,100, so we like to say you get “big city amenities for small-town pricing.” Over on Christina Landing Drive, you can find 1,346 sq ft condos for $269,900, but our homes give you up to 2,500 sq ft of living space and a wide variety of floor plans to suit your needs. One of our recent homeowners told us: “Our monthly mortgage payment is actually less than the rent we used to pay!” That says it all about the affordability of Darley Green townhouses in Wilmington, Delaware.
2. Luxury Amenities
Our standard features are comparable to upscale luxury features in other local developments. For instance, every Darley Green home comes with:
- Gourmet kitchens with center island per plan
- Large walk-in closets
- Energy-efficient gas heating
- One or two car garages
3. Customization Options
One of the neat things about buying through a builder is that you can have the home how you want it before you move in. You don’t have to worry about painting, staining cabinets, or upgrading. You can choose from a wide selection of decorator colors for your laminate kitchen counters, as well as a choice of oak cabinet finishes and hardware. Optional upgrades include: the addition of a loft, a fourth bedroom and bathroom, wiring for a multi-room sound system, whirlpool jet tubs, granite kitchen counters, crown molding, bay windows, a front porch, hardwood floors, upgraded kitchen appliances, oak stairs, tray ceilings, and more.
Delaware is an excellent place to live, tax-wise. First of all, there is no sales tax, so you can shop to your heart’s content. Secondly, there are extremely low property taxes, compared to neighboring states like New Jersey or Pennsylvania. In March 2013, Philadelphia residents were slammed with tax increases of up to $2,000. Some of our homeowners who have come over from New Jersey said they were paying $10,000 a year… and now they only pay $1800! Furthermore, you will enjoy living free from personal state taxes on your income and inheritance taxes. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by moving from Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia or New York.
5. Peace of Mind
The community in Wilmington has Delaware townhomes and condos that are “move-in ready.” Unlike foreclosures or gently used homes where you’re not exactly certain what you are getting, these beautiful homes are brand new, never-lived-in, and in pristine condition. There are many reasons to feel good about this type of investment. It’s smart, since houses within planned communities have shown to retain their value over the years. Lastly, your purchase is backed by a 2-10 Home Builders Warranty. This means you get a one-year warranty on workmanship (paint, fireplace, cabinets, masonry, doors, windows); a two-year systems warranty (electrical, plumbing); and a 10-year structural warranty (roof, foundation, load-bearing walls, frame, ducts).You just don’t get that kind of peace of mind buying a gently used home.
