Financial reasons to retire in Wilmington, Delaware

Most retirees are beginning this new stage in life with a fixed income. Finding an affordable place to live that still offers the things that make those “golden years” golden is not always easy.

However, Delaware's tax system accompanied with Darley Green's reasonable housing costs truly simplify things. Delaware retirees can take advantage of these benefits:

  • Low income tax – a graduating tax of 2.2 to 5.5 percent for incomes under $60,000 and 5.95 percent for incomes over $60,000
  • Social Security is tax exempt
  • Railroad retirement benefits are tax exempt
  • Taxpayers over 60 can exclude $12,500 of investment and qualified pension income
  • Taxpayers under 60 can exclude $2,000 of investment and qualified pension income
  • Out-of-state government pensions qualify for pension and retirement exemption
  • Reasonable property tax – the median property tax based on the average home value of $249,400 is $1,078
  • Zero sales tax 
  • No inheritance tax
  • Condos and townhouses starting in the low $200,000's 

Amenities of living in the Darley Green community

One aspect that retirees love most about Darley Green is that all landscaping – snow-shoveling, leaf-raking, and more are included. With no yard work to do, residents are free to take advantage of the many on-site walking trails or stroll to their favorite restaurant for an evening of fine dining. Within the immediate area, residents can catch a movie, go shopping, or explore the nightlife.

Although just about everything a person may desire is within a few minutes away, there is always the option of driving 20 minutes to spend some time in Philadelphia, or an hour to visit Baltimore.
