The real estate market is crazy right now. Properties in some markets are being sold before they even hit the MLS. With travel having slowed, the trend is for more people to stay local and, therefore, look for properties that are an upgrade from what they currently own. Or, they are looking for properties that are within a day or two worth of driving to be used as a home away from home.
Inside the pages of this issue are fabulous Waterfront Properties on pages 48-49 and Desert Dream Homes on pages 54-55. These are just a sampling of what our realtor partners have to offer. To see more, make sure to visit dupontregistry.com/homes or follow us on any of our social media channels. There are thousands of properties being offered for sale by some of the top real estate professionals in the industry.

Fantasies of a tropical paradise or, perhaps, a quiet lakeside sanctuary are the envy of many and so, we showcase the market’s top-tier waterfront oases on offer across the nation. View Listings
