Delaware rental property in Kent County needs to be managed like any other property in the country. Only about 200,000 people live in the county with the majority residing in the county seat of Dover so it’s very likely that new applicants for tenancy may have lived in another part of the state or country. Because of its relatively low cost of living, Dover is one of the fast-growing cities in the state. Lower rents along with much of the jobs in the area coming from the county government and Dover Air Force Base help keep this cost of living down. Kraft Foods and Procter & Gamble are also two significant employers in the area.
