I concur with Funk Brewing’s comment:
“If you have never experienced the Velodrome, we highly recommend it.”
While it’s been a while since I’ve been there, I remember not only some races, but also riding my 20” BMX up on the high banks on a Saturday morning... but that was a looong time ago.

We are excited to partner with the Trexlertown Velodrome for the 2019 season. We brewed a Belgian witbier with tangerine and grapefruit peels, and a house spice mix. Light fruity ale with a slight spicy finish. This beer will only be available at the Velodrome and our tasting room in Emmaus. If you have never experienced the Velodrome we highly recommend it. Riders from all over the world spend their summer in Lehigh Valley racing in Ttown. Part chess, part NASCAR, it is a great family night out with great craft beer and local wine. Racing starts tonight, Friday May 31st, and runs all summer long.
Check out their website.

Window to the Law: Off-MLS Listings

“If listed property is withheld (from the MLS) without the Seller understanding the potential consequences of limited market exposure, or purely because the listing broker seeks to avoid the obligation to share the commission, that’s a problem. As a general practice, actively discouraging submission of listings in the MLS is inconsistent with the fundamental cooperative nature of the MLS and the obligations of the Code of Ethics.”

Greater Lehigh Valley REALTORS® Release 2018 Annual Market Report: (excerpt) --->

"WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2019: The biggest potential problem for residential real estate in 2019 might be human psychology. A fear of buying at the height of the market could create home purchase delays by a large pool of potential first-time buyers, thus creating an environment of declining sales.

If the truth of a positive economic outlook coupled with responsible lending practices and more available homes for sale captures the collective American psyche, the most likely outcome for 2019 is market balance."

Fed puts interest rate hikes on hold

A steady (low) interest rate will help this year’s Real Estate market continue to thrive. Buy this year while rates remain low, whether a first time buyer or a step-up buyer.

The Federal Reserve announced on Wednesday that it would hold the federal funds rate in a range between 2.25 percent and 2.5 percent due to a strong labor market and robust economic activity.

Here is a snapshot of some data from August. Comparing Pending Sales by month (Aug to Aug / July to July: Pics 2 & 3) and watching the trend over the last set of years, here is the big take away: There aren’t less homes for sale in so much as more deals are being put together ~ that’s the bigger cause for the shortage in supply... the higher demand! Higher demand is what’s good for sellers, the low rates are what’s good for buyers.

Know the difference between a furnace/heat pump & boiler in order to be an educated consumer. Depending on the type of heat a home has, look at potential secondary heat sources, such as pellet stoves or fireplace inserts.
