Soon after Bob and Delores Wardwell finished paying off the mortgage on their home in Ellicott City in November 2001, they came to a painful realization. The tax break they earned with a mortgage was gone. "That's when we decided that we'd be better off buying a second home," said Delores Wardwell. They settled on a cozy duplex priced at $190,000 near Bethany Beach, Del.

BETHANY BEACH, Del. - Bethesda resident Jean Holland's dream of owning a home by the ocean had been fueled by the decades she and her family had vacationed in Bethany Beach. It was a dream she never thought would come true. "Then, I made some money in the stock market, and my aunt left me some," recalled Holland, who retired last year after 22 years working for Talbots Inc. "My financial consultant told me to go ahead and follow my dream." Knowing the importance of staying within a budget, Holland knew she couldn't afford an oceanfront home.

And for a long time, everybody was right. After graduating with an art degree from St. Mary's College, O'Brien designed insurance forms and then sold hoses and couplings for a while to support his family.
