Ocean View Town Council members said at their budget workshop on Tuesday this week that they were pleased taxes won’t increase this year, but Town Manager Carol Houck warned that there will likely be a hike next year. “I anticipate a 1-cent increase” through the 2029 fiscal year, “and I don’t foresee our ability to not increase the tax rate” in the 2026 fiscal year, Houck said at the Feb. 27 workshop on the Town’s 2025-fiscal-year budget.

“We have maintained the tax rate for the third year in a row, and getting to the current rate included a 3-cent reduction three years ago. We’re proud of that and all we have been able to accomplish,” she said.

March has arrived and we are looking forward to longer light filled days ahead! Bayside had a firm start to the year for real estate activity. While it is not the frenzy that we experienced in 2021 and 2022, to-date, sales are close to keeping pace with last year.

As the chart illustrates, through the first two months, 10 properties went under contract in Bayside compared to 11 during the same time last year. Properties that are priced appropriately continue to sell quickly although the pace is slowing. The median sale price of properties settled in January and February was up 3% when compared to the same months in 2023.

If you are considering buying or selling, please give our Bayside Experts a call to discuss ways that we can work together to

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) plans to hold a public informational session regarding US Wind’s proposed construction that would bring power lines ashore at 3Rs Beach at the Delaware Seashore State Park.

US Wind and Governor John Carney’s Office previously announced negotiations were underway to bring the power lines from offshore turbines ashore at 3Rs Beach, with US Wind paying an annual $350,000 for the land lease.

DNREC says the information session, slated for next Tuesday, will focus solely on the potential lease to allow the underground cables at the beach, including the construction plan and what will be visible following the construction. The meeting will not cover the

March has arrived and we are looking forward to longer light filled days ahead! Bear Trap has had a slow start to the year for real estate activity. While it is not the frenzy that we experienced in 2021 and 2022, to-date, sales are up considerably when compared to last year in other areas at the beach, but extremely low inventory has suppressed sales in your community.

As the chart illustrates, through the first two months, new contracts were down 33% compared to the same time last year. Properties that are priced appropriately continue to sell quickly and the median sale price of properties settled in January and February was up 26% when compared to the same months in 2023.
