Reality Check: Why Home Inspections Matter
One of the best pieces of advice you can heed when it comes to buying a house is to order a home inspection. Regardless of whether you're a first-time homebuyer or an old pro, you might have on rose-colored glasses when it comes to buying a house – your future home. Luckily, a certified home inspector has no emotional attachment to your new place and can impartially and appropriately identify structural, electrical and plumbing problems. Plus, this person can offer insight into the safety and value of the house.

The history of Lehigh Valley’s iconic Easter Peeps -Just Born acquired the Rodda Candy Company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1953. Although better known for its jelly bean technology, Rodda also made a small line of marshmallow products that intrigued the Just Born family. A popular three dimensional marshmallow chick was made by laboriously hand-squeezing marshmallow through pastry tubes. Sam Born’s son Bob, who had joined the company in 1946, helped to mechanize the marshmallow forming process a year after buying the company. As a result, what once took 27 hours to produce and package, the iconic PEEPS® chick now only takes 6 minutes.

Check out this housing market update for March of 2019--it includes information providing the most comprehensive overview of real estate trends in the Greater Lehigh Valley area.

"In addition to the quandary of ongoing housing price increases and affordability concerns in many U.S. markets, the first quarter of 2019 saw a fair share of adverse weather as well. Sales totals were mixed across the nation and sometimes dependent on what was a persistent wintry mix, especially in the Great Plains, Midwest and Northeast. Meanwhile, new listings and total homes for sale have been trending lower in year-over-year comparisons in many areas, and last year's marks were already quite low.

The Federal Reserve recently announced that no further interest rate hikes are planned for 2019. Given the fact that the federal funds rate has increased nine times over the past three years, this was welcome news for U.S. consumers, which carry an approximate average of $6,000 in revolving credit card debt per household. Fed actions also tend to affect mortgage rates, so the pause in rate hikes was also welcome news to the residential real estate industry."

While the season transition happens, it is an ideal time to make changes to your home. Do repairs and cleaning in detail. Also, get a major organization done before the start of summer. Some changes in the decor will also bring a fresh feel. So, here are different ways to get your home ready for spring: http://www.amazinginteriordesign.com/get-your-home-ready-for-spring/

Do you ever think about having a vegetable garden? If so, Tim Delaney of Full Circle Veggies is a Lehigh Valley business person you should know about. Tim does installations and maintenance, using an extensive list of seeds as well as seedlings he grows himself. He planted three weeks ago and now the peas are shooting up along with lettuce, arugula, spinach, radishes, kale, onions, beets, carrots and garlic. I can’t say enough about my positive experiences with Tim. Year 4 together and still growing strong! If you want the pleasures of a garden without the labor give Tim a call.

In 2018 I helped many buyers move to the Lehigh Valley from out of the area. When we relocated here in 1995 it took years to find the best local places. I’ve decided to post some of my go to spots to aid in the process of getting comfortable in the valley. Today’s location is Dan Schantz Greenhouses at 2031 29th Street SW, Allentown. This is my favorite spot for pots, window boxes, garden gloves, etc. The flowers are great but it’s the gardening extras I prefer at Dan’s.

Stopped by my favorite Lehigh Valley greenhouse today. Hickory Grove in Catasauqua is gearing up for Spring. Herbs, cool weather veggies and flowers are in and appear really healthy. (The wagon load is mine.) More varieties arriving over the next three weeks. Great local business, established in 1917.
