Why Salisbury, Md. Real Estate is a Great Investment


The Village Down River offers large, estate lots for sale within driving distance to major cities in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington DC.

Of all the communities located along the mid-Atlantic coast, purchasing land for sale in the Salisbury, Maryland area offers buyers one of the best investment opportunities out there.

City of Salisbury

Salisbury is known as the "Crossroads of Delmarva" due to its strategic location and the intersection of the area’s major East-West (US Rt. 50) and North-South (US Rt. 13) roadways. By traveling these two routes, you are only a few hours’ drive from many major metropolitan areas, including Washington DC, Baltimore, Annapolis, Dover, Philadelphia, and Norfolk. You are also 30 minutes from Ocean City, MD or Assateague Island, and roughly 45 minutes from the Delaware beachfront resort towns of Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach, and Dewey. These are all areas where finding large estate lots like those offered at the Village Down River would be many times more expensive, provided the community even has inventory of this type for sale.

White Heron

As the cultural and economic center of the Delmarva Peninsula, Salisbury is known for providing the best mix of a big town and rural beauty. Salisbury offers shopping (both national chains and small, local stores), an outstanding healthcare system (Peninsula Regional Medical Center), and unique local restaurants offering the most popular types of cuisine. Salisbury is home to numerous cultural programs, including the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra; Delmarva Shorebirds, a minor league affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles; the Salisbury Zoo, accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums; breweries and winerys nearby; and events and festivals.

Delmarava Shorebirds

In keeping with Delmarva’s agricultural heritage, the area’s population is deeply committed to preserving the area’s rural feel. Less than an hour’s drive of Salisbury are numerous villages like Fruitland, Delmar, Hebron, Mardela Springs, Berlin, and more which offer the historic, small town charm that characterizes the region. Strict zoning laws have been enacted to keep the area mostly rural, complete with farms, public ponds, and green space that has long since been lost to development in nearby metropolitan areas.


The past decade have brought a lot of "come heres" who have discovered Delmarva's way of life, who are seeking to leave the traffic, congestion, and difficulties of large city living behind. They see the opportunity to raise a family, or even retire in a more affordable place without having to move a thousand or more miles into the Sun Belt or giving up the types of services that they are accustomed to.

As time goes on, Delmarva property for sale is bound to continue appreciating in value. And as one of the area’s most unique, environmentally friendly communities, the Village Down River is positioned to take advantage of this trend unlike most other developments in the region.
