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

As I sit to write this, there is a lot of activity – even more than usual – in our offices. We are in the midst of a very busy event season for both the automotive and the homes divisions. We have a team leaving for Pebble Beach to attend the most well-known and respected Concours in the auto enthusiast “world.” We are also getting ready to send our marketing teams to several luxury real estate events including the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Summit September 15-17, Who’s Who Luxury Real Estate September 25-27 and Leaders in Luxury – The Institute October 27-30. So, you can certainly imagine the reason for the flurry of activity here. But not to worry, our team has still had time to assemble a fantastic group of properties for you in this issue.

Golf Course Residences

“Considering a golf course property purchase? You’re in good company. It’s a buyer’s market for those looking to purchase a home within a golf community, whether as a primary residence or a supplemental property to broaden their portfolios. Premier U.S. greens underwent a major housing boom from the late 80s through the early 2000s, with many new developments arising at high-end courses. The saturated market is now compelling the communities to broaden their amenities in order to attract new buyers.”  View Editorial
