While January and February can be slower months for real estate sales on the Delaware coast, this year has proven otherwise. During the first two months of 2017, 59 properties went under contract in the Bethany-Fenwick area. This is the strongest start to the year that the market has experienced in more than a decade.   

New contracts on single family homes are up 36% from 25 in 2016 to 34 in 2017. New contracts on condo/townhomes improved 47% from 17 last year to 25 so far in 2017.

About the beach grass planting:

Volunteers are the backbone of Delaware's shoreline stabilization. Every spring since 1990, many dedicated volunteers have stabilized Delaware's sand dunes by planting more than 5 million stems of Cape American beachgrass along ocean and bay beaches.

Dune Grass Planting Bethany Beach

Sand dunes are more than beautiful! Sand dunes provide protection against damaging coastal storms by absorbing wave energy. Sand dunes offer protection by acting as major sand storage areas which replenish sand to eroded beaches during storm events. Without sand dunes, storm waves rush inland and flood properties.

Denison Landscaping Company will be at Sea Colony on Thursday and Friday, March 2-3 to plant 28,000 dune grass plugs.  Owners who are interested may volunteer to help with the project, which is scheduled to start, weather permitting, at 9 a.m

Dune grass is a natural defense for coastal storms, winds and beach erosion.  The grass is hearty and helps absorb nature’s impact.  Carefully planted dune grass tolerates heat, strong sunlight and salt spray.  It cannot, however, survive being trampled upon by animals, humans and vehicles.  Please click here for more information, provided by the Delaware Natural Resources Department.

You need only show up at 9 a.m. at the Edgewater Crossover if you are interested in volunteering to help plant the grasses.  Please
