Rocky Ridge Park

My wife and I take our two kids to the Rocky Ridge Park Christmas Light Display every year.
They put on an impressive display of lights. Admission is reasonable and you can take the tour as many times as you want. It is outdoors so dress appropriately. Refreshments are available and bring your camera because Santa is there and the kids can sit on his lap if they wish.
Depending on your pace, the entire display will probably take around 30 minutes to complete.

Holidays in York PA

The holidays are fast approaching. There are a lot of activities in the York area. A Christmas parade will follow market Street in downtown York. One of the most popular is the Christmas spectacular at Rocky Ridge Park. A short drive away is the Christmas in Hershey at Hershey Park. You can go during the day or night and see the many lights and some of the attractions are open. You can also take the chocolate tour ride. News Years Eve will at the new York Revolution Stadium will usher in the new year with First Night York. More later.

It is coming up on Thanksgiving quickly here in York PA. New homes sales and existing home sale inventory continues to rise. Currently there is an avarage of 11 month supply. Big difference from last year at this time! Buyers here in York County seem to be a little reluctant to make a home buying decision. I think that home Sellers are ready and willing to try to negotiate a reasonable house offer with a good solid buyer. (What I mean is that a buyer with good credit and able to close on a house in a short period of time along with a reasonable house inspection.) Sellers of homes in York, Shrewsbury, Stewartstown, New Freedom, Red Lion, Dallastown, Dover or just about anywhere in York County PA are willing to listen to buyers offers.
Mortgage interest rates are low and now is the time to buy!

York PA Weather! HOT! HOT! HOT!

The weather sure has been warm around here in York County, PA. Seems more like August than October. Maybe we should take time off to go down to the Susquehanna River! It is a good place to visit one of the local parks for boating, fishing, picnicing or just kicking back to relax by the water.

If real estate were like the weather (sometimes I think it is), the housing market is hot like it was, or sometimes it cools off like it has been lately, people just don't know if it is a good time to buy a home. Now has got to be one of the best time in the last few years to jump into the real estate market! Interest rates are still low and there is plenty of inventory to choose from. Even home sellers here in York can take advantage of the housing market. Sure they might sell for less but they can make that up and more by getting a terrific price on a house with a higher value. Seems homes that are priced higher have been taking the biggest price hit here. So take advantage of this great market.

Keeping the weather in mind it is bound to cool off soon. Real Estate is also bound to bounce back sooner rather than later. Take advantage of this housing market while you can!

I'm glad you brought that up Jamie, I get tired of hearing that stuff all over the news.
I did hear a saying, "Real Estate is like the weather, not the same everywhere"
I still think our local market is doing pretty well overall. I think most of the problems are in other areas, but the media gives everyone the idea that there are problems nationwide.
If you listen to the news media the sky is falling and the last thing anyone should consider doing is buying a home. As with everything in life, real estate goes in cycles. Prices fluctuate in the short term, but long term real estate is still an excellent investment!
I have noticed there are a lot of VERY nice homes on the market lately at reasonable prices.
Buyers have numerous different choices to really find exactly what they are looking for in a home.......but I have also found out that a good home that is priced right still goes quickly.

My first Blog ever!!

Well, this is interesting, to able to provide valuable information to customers and friends in a more informal way. It could be fun, I think. I am looking forward to it. Our site is really looking good too. Our Pilgrim Team Truck is just fabulous, everyone loves it. Now I want the same type of advertisement in a new little "smart car" that I saw on TV over the weekend. Hmmm, let's ask Jerry! (Ha Ha)

It's a beautiful day outside today. Anxious to see how The Pilgrim Team truck looks after the graphics are put on the truck. This is available for all buyers to use, which is awesome, at no charge. Pretty cool, huh!
