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

"At this point in the year, we are getting a good sense for how the housing market is likely to perform for the foreseeable future. And although it is not a particularly exciting forecast, it is a desirable one. Markets across the country are regulating toward a middle ground between buyers and sellers. While it remains true that sales prices are running higher and that inventory options are relatively low, buyers are beginning to find wiggle room at some price points and geographies.

An extended trend of low unemployment, higher wages and favorable mortgage rates has been a terrific driver of housing stability in recent years. What is different about this year so far is that prices are not rising as quickly. Some of the hottest Western markets are even cooling slightly, while some Northeast markets are achieving a state of recovery after a decade of battling back from recession. As a whole, the selling season is looking fairly stable across the nation."

3 Things to Know About the Housing Market Right Now
Home sales in April increased over March – by more than 11% – and were happening faster too, according to the latest RE/MAX National Housing Report. Instead of spending an average of 59 days on the market, as homes were doing in March, homes in April were selling a week quicker, in an average of 52 days. Stronger buyer interest coupled with realistic price expectations by sellers advanced the market’s move toward more balanced conditions.

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.
