Delaware has many draws for active adults, including beaches, golf courses, and natural areas, all with easy access to big cities. For retirees and the budget-conscious, Delaware should be a top choice.

Compared to the surrounding Mid-Atlantic, the state has an overall lower cost of living. Tax breaks for retirees, low property tax, and no sales tax also make living in the state easy on the pocketbook. Active adults who want to take advantage of the low cost of living and the Delaware shore will find a home in Sussex County, the southernmost county of the state.

Here are three great, low-priced communities in Sussex County.

Cedar Bay – Ocean View

Mid $100s – Mid $200s

Beachcombers will love the location of Cedar Bay. While technically in Ocean View, the community is just minutes from Bethany Beach at the Atlantic Ocean. Only 72 condos make up this tight-knit community. The condos range from two- to three-bedroom, but all have a balcony or outdoor patio. While the proximity to the beach and Bethany is unparalleled, residents can also enjoy time at the clubhouse, exercise room, and outdoor pool.

Heritage Shores – Bridgeville

Mid $200s – Low $400s

Another best buy in southern Delaware is Heritage Shores. The amenities in this community include the resort-style living that many active adults desire. Outside, residents can golf, play tennis or pickleball, and walk or bike around the scenic neighborhood.

At the Heritage Shores Club, residents can enjoy over 50 clubs and activities, or stay active at the Fitness & Aquatic Center. However, the prices of single-family and attached homes remain affordable, with smaller models starting in the low $200s.
