Rehoboth Beach, DE (PressExposure) June 05, 2011 -- The real estate market may be a tad slow in its recovery, but nonetheless, buyers are once again returning to the market in search of that perfect home, and increasingly, a retreat in the form of a second home which enables individuals, couples, and families to get a respite from the grinding effects of urban living.
