"Hey Barbara, I have done a lot of real estate transactions and this one was by far the smoothest. You do amazing work and have restored my faith in the real estate profession" Dan - California

Barbara knows the market like no one else. We sold our home in days. She made the process easy and hassle-free. We have worked with Barbara three times, as buyers and sellers. She is the most competent realtor we have ever encountered. She handles every detail of the process expertly. Heidi and Nick, Rhode Island

“Barbara Morales and her team were wonderful. After many years of buying & selling, this transaction was the most professional and delightful experience.” - Tom & Joan, DE

Tax Advantages of Coastal Delaware

Delaware is one of the fastest growing areas in the country. Do you know why? TAXES! The number of people buying vacation, retirement or investment property in Coastal Delaware increases every year.

Delaware offers Home Buyers some of the Lowest Real Estate Taxes in the country. For most that is enough of an incentive to live in Delaware but when you add to the equation that there is No Sales Tax, No Inheritance Tax for most residents, and No Social Security Tax it is difficult to find a better place to live.

But it doesn’t end there - Railroad Retirement Benefits are Exempt from Income Tax, and if you’re 60 or older you can Exclude up to $12,500 of Investment and Qualified Pension Income from your taxes.

And even Out-of-State Government Pensions qualify for the Exemption. This makes Delaware “The Most Tax-Friendly State for Retirees” according to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine.

And keep in mind that properties are not re-assessed when they sell or transfer to new owners.
