Delaware Real Estate Analysis

The City of Delaware is the seat of Delaware County, located about 30 miles north of downtown Columbus, Ohio’s state capitol. Delaware is an independent community that retains its smalltown qualities while benefiting from northward growth from the Columbus region. Delaware County has been the state’s fastest growing county for more than a decade and is among the top-20 fastest growing, wealthiest and most-educated areas in the nation.

The City population exceeds 34,000 and has been home to many families for generations. It is also an appealing place for young families to move, attracted to the quality of life and the distance from the pace and problems associated with metropolitan areas. A fast growing component of the population is young families. This has important significance for school programs and facilities, as well as for the City. About five percent of the population is minority.

The total labor force of Delaware County is 43,800. The largest employers are manufacturers of automobile coatings, plastics, copper products, education, insurance, automobile parts and distribution, sports apparel, retail, services and government. Delaware County is a net importer of workers from throughout Ohio to its many employers.

At the Delaware State Park and the Alum Creek State Park, residents enjoy boating and fishing and the full variety of water sports. Delaware is also the home of the Little Brown Jug, the crown jewel of harness racing’s Triple Crown. The cultural amenities of Columbus are available nearby, as well.
