Harbor freight is opening at Westgate mall

 Harbor Freight Bethlehem PA

If you're from Bethlehem, I'm sure you're familiar with Westgate Mall. For years the mall has struggled to keep tenants , and has recently made great strides in improving its image. Since Weis Markets moved over to the old Bon Ton location, it left a vacancy right in the heart of the mall.

 

We always wondered who would take up that spot? Well now we know! It's official harbor freight, which is a family owned chain, recently committed to opening a location in a portion of the old Weis market space. Renovations have already begun and we anticipate the new harbor freight in Bethlehem to be opening later in 2022.

 

As you know there's a harbor freight over in Easton and there's one over in West Allentown in the Tilghman Square shopping Center, so this location definitely makes a lot of sense! Having a new harbor freight right here in Bethlehem, right in the heart of The Lehigh Valley, should prove very successful!

Record setting housing prices hit the Lehigh Valley!

Greater Lehigh Valley Realtors just released their July data report showing for the second month in a row home prices have broke records.

 

The average days on market in July it was only 27 days, and the median sales price is up a whopping 5.7% over July 2018. The median sale price is now $222,000. However inventory is down 17.8%! The total homes sold in July 2019 versus July 2018 is actually down 7.2%, due to the lack of inventory.

 

This trend continues to create a very very strong seller market. Buyers have less homes to choose from, are paying more, and running into multiple offer situation‘s. The good news for buyers though is that mortgage rates have declined sharply, and are now sitting around 3.875%.
