totalsalesThis is a question I hear several times a week, "How's the market?"  In the past few months, the question has been followed by a hopeful, "It's picking up, isn't it?"  I am quick to answer, "Yes, it is!"  Most recently, I've often pointed to the anecdotal evidence that Shoal Harbor, the townhouse development planned for the parcel previously home to Suburban Propane (adjacent to Rehoboth Avenue), sold out in 10 days.  (Back-up reservations are currently being taken.)  The Sussex County Association of REALTORS just came out with its end of the year report on the housing market, giving statistical evidence supporting a most positive answer to the question, "How's the Market?"

Year-end totals for 2012 were a 14% increase from 2011 total sales. According to the SCAOR MLS, $1,135,030,139 sales were recorded for 4006 transactions including single family homes, mobile homes, townhomes and condo units, farms, lots and land, and commercial property and fractional ownership.

 The Debbie Reed Team

January 11-21, 2013, has been designated by Jack Markell as the Governor’s Week of Service, and he and first lady Carla Markell, encourage Delawareans to join them in seeking out special volunteer projects during this time.

As reported by the Cape Gazette in its Friday, December 28 issue, “The Governor’s Week of Service expands on the weekend of service that the Markells hosted in January 2009, in lieu of the traditional inaugural ball.  To commemorate the governor’s second four-year term, the Markells will take part in and promote a week of service, in addition to other inauguration events.”

Projects organized by the governor’s office include cleanup of the Laurel Boys & Girls Club, a statewide food drive at all Delaware State Service Centers and a weeklong Martin Luther King Jr. Day Blood Drive.

The Gazette quotes Markell as saying, “The best way to thank you to the people of Delaware for the privilege of being their governor for a second term is to give back to our communities and neighbors, and to urge others to do the same.  Carla and I believe strongly in the power of people to make a difference.  To us, it doesn’t matter how much time or money you give.  What matters is taking the step to make this a better Delaware for everyone.”

Volunteer opportunities abound in Coastal Delaware, including the Cape Henlopen Food Basket food bank, the Community Resource Center, numerous thrift shops and Habitat for Humanity, just to name a few.

The Governor’s Week of Service is in addition to the annual Delaware Week of Service, scheduled for April 21-27, 2013.  To register a project or to become involved with either week of service, visit
