The Lehigh Valley real estate market is continuing to show signs of improvement and we are seeing positive growth in many factors! It feels so good as a Realtor to be able to talk about such good news! The positive trend started a few months ago, but is improving almost daily it seems.

According to the Lehigh Valley Association of Realtors (LVAR) latest report, pending home sales in April 2013 were up 39.3 percent compared to the same time period last year. The number of homes available for sale decreased 14.8 percent, meaning that buyers should act quickly if they find a home they like…they’re going quick! Homes in the Lehigh Valley are selling 25.6% faster than a year ago, and the average selling price has increased 2.5 percent.

It is becoming a seller’s market and using video to promote a listing will increase your chances even more to sell quickly and for top dollar.
