duPont REGISTRY A Buyers Gallery of Fine Homes® July 2019 Uncovered

It’s amazing how quickly time flies. It seems like just yesterday we were sharing winter getaway ideas, wearing coats and sweaters and even experiencing shortened daylight hours. Now, many of us are preparing for summer vacations and the long, hot, lazy days of summer. This time of year, although typically a time for a more relaxed state of mind, can be a great time to consider adding to your real estate portfolio.
