Dewey Market Watch 10/29/19 to 12/4/19
Happy holidays!!! The holiday season is fully upon us. The outlets in Rehoboth have been packed on the weekends! Mild weather from all of the surrounding states still has many people coming to the beach for the weekend! The real estate market has been very slow due to the holiday season and that’s typically expected. I’d like to thank everyone who’s been following my Dewey Market Watch! Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season!!!
