The Pocono Mountain region is known far and wide for its exquisite beauty. Scenic mountains, thick forests, countless bodies of water: there is no end to the natural radiance of the Poconos. Many visit this area to engage in these exact natural elements; through dozens of parks across NEPA, there are endless possibilities for hiking, fishing, bicycling, and more. If you’re interested in something more relaxed, there are many spaces for lazy days of picnics and bird-watching. This summer, the Poconos adds a new park to its impressive repertoire. Just in time for Earth Day, Monroe Country unveiled Marshalls Falls Park, a new park named appropriately for its location near Marshalls Creek. As Spring bursts life into the region, Marshalls Falls is a great place to take in all of the beauty o...

It’s mid-March and we’ve all sprung our clocks ahead for longer days and more sunshine. What better way to enjoy the additional sunlight than to get outside and explore? Although the Pocono Mountains offer year-round activities for the bravest of nature enthusiasts, many of us wait to emerge until the weather breaks for the season. With spring looming in front of us, it’s time to make lists of all of the great outdoors spaces to visit across the region in the coming warm months.One place to add to your must-see list while visiting the Poconos is the Thomas Darling Preserve in Monroe County, PA. Named for nearby Wilkes Barre native naturalist Thomas Darling Jr., this preserve boasts one of the biggest and healthiest spruce forests in the entire state. The Preserve features 2,500 acres of...

It’s March, and there is finally a light at the end of the long winter tunnel. Although the warm weather isn’t in full swing just yet, we are seeing glimpses of the changing seasons, most notably heard through the robins’ songs each morning. As we await the warmth and light of spring and summer across the Pocono Mountains, we can get glimpses of the season by attending some local events across the region.    Farmers markets are often signatures of summer when fresh local produce is at its most abundant. However, in Stroudsburg, PA, you can find the Monroe Farmers Market offering a brightness to its neighbors year round. Not only does the market provide traditional farmers market offerings, but it is also a hub for local vendors and events. Find local produce, honey, soaps, baked goods, ...

Camelback Mountain in Tannersville, PA is known for its epic water park in the summer and in the winter for its skiing and snowboarding trails. However, visitors to the Poconos should not sleep on the park during the off-season. This October, experience spooky fun for the entire family after dark at Camelback.  On weekend nights throughout October, the park is alive with activities for all ages. For the thrill-seekers out there, check out the 1,000 foot zipline in the dark; race a friend or family member down a double barrel zipline through the trees from up to eight stories high. There is also the the Mountain Glowster, PA’s only mountain coaster: fly through the trees in a thrilling coaster lit only by decorative lights throughout the track. Sunbowl tubing is available as well. Love t...

The dream of a mountain home is not just a place to enjoy peace and quiet, but also a space to create memories with friends and family. This is what 7137 Winnebago provided for the course of several decades for one family in particular.  In 1986, the present owners found a place in the scenic Pocono Mountains as a getaway for the family to gather and create new traditions and memories with their growing family. The owners and their family spent time renovating and adding to the home, creating the exact space to fit their family’s needs, and to make the space as comfortable as possible for their visitors. They added a large deck with a screened-in porch, and bought the adjoining lot to expand their space for adventure and exploration.  This home became the setting for countless memories ...

Planning To Retire? Your Equity Can Help You Reach Your Goal. Whether you’ve just retired or you’re thinking about retirement, you may be considering your options and trying to picture a whole new stage of your life. And you’re not alone. Research from the Retirement Industry Trust Association (RITA) shows 10,000 Baby Boomers reach the typical retirement age (65) every day, and only 47% of the people in that generation have already retired. If this sounds like you, one thing worth considering is whether or not your current home will suit your new lifestyle. If your home doesn’t have the features or benefits you’re looking for, the good news is, you may be in a better position to move than you realize. That’s because, if you already own a home, you’ve likely built-up significant equity, ...

Experts Increase 2022 Home Price Projections If you’re wondering if home prices are going to come down due to the cooldown in the housing market or a potential recession, here’s what you need to know. Not only are experts forecasting home prices will continue to appreciate nationwide this year, but most of them also actually increased their projections for home price appreciation from their original 2022 forecasts (shown in green in the chart below): As the chart shows, most sources adjusted up, and now call for more appreciation in 2022 than they originally projected this January. But why are experts so confident the housing market will see ongoing appreciation? It’s because of supply and demand in most markets. As Bankrate says: “After all, supplies of homes for sale remain near recor...

What Would a Recession Mean for the Housing Market? According to a recent survey from the Wall Street Journal, the percentage of economists who believe we’ll see a recession in the next 12 months is growing. When surveyed in July 2021, only 12% of economists consulted thought there’d be a recession by now. But this July, when polled, 49% believe we will see a recession in the coming 12 months. And as more recession talk fills the air, one concern many people have is: should I delay my homeownership plans if there’s a recession? Here’s a look at historical data to show what happened in real estate during previous recessions to help prove why you shouldn’t be afraid of what a recession would mean for the housing market today. A Recession Doesn’t Mean Falling Home Prices To show that home ...

Why Are People Moving Today? Buying a home is a major life decision. That’s true whether you’re purchasing for the first time or selling your house to fuel a move. And if you’re planning to buy a home, you might be hearing about today’s shifting market and wondering what it means for you. While mortgage rates are higher than they were at the start of the year and home prices are rising, you shouldn’t put your plans on hold based solely on market factors. Instead, it’s necessary to consider why you want to move and how important those reasons are to you. Here are two of the biggest personal motivators driving people to buy homes today. A Need for More Space Moving.com looked at migration patterns to determine why people moved to specific areas. One trend that emerged was the need for add...
