Speak Up: How do you feel the housing situation stands in Delaware?


We’ve been reporting on housing data in the First State and whether there are enough affordable residences for citizens of every financial status. What are your thoughts? Are there too many new developments going up? How can the number of lower-cost rentals be increased? Are the prices to buy single-family homes getting too high?

  • Housing for seniors on fixed incomes is above their affordability. The rents for lots, owned by out-of-state companies, are rising every year, some as high as the supplemental security income raise seniors get. Yet, the amenities aren’t being updated, improved or maintained to ensure healthy living levels for the seniors. There seems to be no state law to control these big businesses and to ensure safety of the seniors. — Liz Killian
