The word is out: Cecil County has become a place where people want to go and where exciting things are happening.

It comes as no surprise to me that Cecil County has become the focus of tourists, homebuyers, and commercial developers.

Cecil County sits in an enviable location midway between Philadelphia and Baltimore.  Hugging the shore of the Upper Chesapeake Bay, Cecil County encompasses a very large and diverse area – much of it undeveloped and much of it waterfront.  

It’s hard to believe that a single county has so much to offer anyone looking for a primary residence or a seasonal home.

Consider the differences between the coastal feel of Earlville, the country feel of Colora, the equestrian feel of Fair Hill, and the hip vibe of the Town of North East.

The Cecil County waterfront has developed with a vast array of individual homes, condominium communities, marinas, and restaurants.  It’s a virtual playground for boating, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc.

Over the past several years, Cecil County has seen a spike in employment opportunities with the development of major distribution facilities.  Perryville is poised to become a regional tourism powerhouse with the recent announcement that Great Wolf Lodge may build a $200 million resort there – employing upwards to 600 people.  If the resort is built, Cecil County will have a conference center with a 500 person capacity.  That’s a very big deal!

Still, Cecil County home prices remain undervalued when compared to neighboring Harford County, Maryland and nearby areas in Delaware.

As an added bonus for potential homebuyers, much of Cecil County is eligible for a loan program offered by the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture).  USDA mortgage loans are intended to promote homeownership in rural areas areas through competitive interest rates, flexible underwriting standards, and no down payment requirements.

It’s these things, and many more, when combined with Cecil County’s accessibility to I-95 that make it a very desirable place to live, work, visit, and play.

If it sounds like I am a huge fan of Cecil County Real Estate – it’s because I am!

Take a minute to watch this video that Cecil County Tourism has released.

It vividly showcases the fact that Cecil County has become the Place To Be!
