Searching our website you may have found that the average price of a house in Rehoboth Beach is over $500,000.

What's the downside to Rehoboth Beach Mobile Homes? In the majority of the local Mobile Home communities, you do not own the land under the house, instead you rent it. This can be called ground rent, leased land or just the monthly bill to keep your Mobile Home on that piece of land. Rates range from around $500 a month for small average lots to as much as $1200 a month for some of the waterfront lots on the Rehoboth Bay. All new residents in these communities have to pass stringent background and credit checks even if they can afford to pay cash for the house. There are also a few Rehoboth Beach Mobile Home communities where you own the land, but don't expect them to be inexpensive, because land values in Rehoboth are through the roof. An old 1960's trailer on land you own in Rehoboth Beach can cost as much as $150,000!!! If it cost less than $150,000 there is a 99% chance it's located in a leased land community and if it cost less than $40,000 there is a good chance it needs repairs.
