Smyrna: Delaware Real Estate
Affordable, Convenient, Growing
Longtime resident and businessman Ron Sayers has seen Smyrna grow from a small rural community to a city-size population of 10,000 since he moved there in the 1950s.
“We have a good school system, and even with all the growth, there’s still a small-town atmosphere here,” Sayers says.
In town, houses from the mid-19th and early 20th centuries can be found in the classic Federal, Italianate, Queen Anne and other traditional styles. On the outskirts, a building boom has produced several new communities of detached single-family homes such as Wicksfield, Southern View and Twin Willows, plus townhouse communities such as Eagle’s View. What were low prices when construction started are even lower now. Value is still the magnet here. Worthington is a community of reasonably priced two- and three-story townhomes. It appeals to first-time buyers, young families and active adults.
