Some Slowing in Bear Trap through April

Posted by Leslie Kopp & Christi Arndt on Monday, May 16th, 2022 at 11:39am

Happy Spring!  As we look back on the first 4 months of the year, there was some slowdown in total sales, but the Bear Trap real estate market remains firm as we continue to experience very limited inventory.

A positive piece of news for real estate that we are watching closely is the Delaware legislation recently introduced that would reduce the transfer tax by 1%, effective for transactions recorded after July 1, 2022.  This would bring the total tax back to 3% vs. 4%.  Typically, this expense is split between the buyer and seller at closing.  While not yet in effect, we are encouraged that this bill will be passed and we will keep you informed.      

If you would like to discuss the market in more detail, please call our Bear Trap Expert, Gail Phelan (302) 233-4909.
