I am reading all sorts of conflicting information about the direction of our economy; headline after headline just continue to conflict the other??!!  So I thought that I would try to stay positive and share a few of the more optimistic articles that look towards a stronger US economy.  The first article is about the job market and it surfaces the unemployment rate and how the FED views the US as "At Full Employment" http://money.cnn.com/2016/05/23/news/economy/us-full-employment-williams/index.html?iid=SF_LN  and here is an article that talks about the growth and general outlook for 2016 http://useconomy.about.com/od/criticalssues/a/US-Economic-Outlook.htm lastly here is a video from Goldmansachs on the "2016 Macroeconomic outlook" http://www.goldmansachs.com/our-thinking/pages/outlook...

The best 8 ways to beat MOSQUITOS! We are all looking forward to summer, but nobody is looking forward to the mosquitos!  As if they weren't annoying enough before, the threat of the Zika Virus has made mosquitos even more dangerous. So after scouring the web for the best tricks for keeping the buggers away here's what i found. 1. Plant a garden. There are several plants that are known to be mosquito repellants including lemongrass, lavender, and marigolds. 2. Grow your own herbs. One of the best is something you might want to grow for other, tastier, reasons as well.  Basil is also a great way to repell them.   3. Make your kitty cat happy. "Some studies report that catnip is 10 times more repellent to mosquitos than sprays, so this plant is a big win for gardeners," said POPSUGAR. "Bo...

Weekly Review - for the week of April 25, 2016The major stock market indexes struggled during the week while the bond market performed well from mid-week on. Corporate earnings and economic reports were mixed throughout the week and contributed to an increase in bond prices and lower yields as investors sought a safer refuge in lower risk assets.In economic news, New Home Sales were reported softer than expected with a 1.5% decline in March from February to 511,000 annualized units while economists had been looking for a slightly higher reading of 521,000. This decline isn’t quite as bad as it seems as February’s originally reported 512,000 in new home sales was revised higher to 519,000. The Western Region led sales lower with a sharp 23.6% decline. This region has experienced explosiv...

Had an opportunity to volunteer for the Habitat for humanity build this year in York Pa. I have been asked before but thought I would like to but never really took the time to do it. Well this year I said YES! It was a fun day spent with nurses, bankers, and co Realtors . We framed walls, added the second floor floor joice., wrapped the outside in house wrap, and so on. It was a stinking 100 degrees outside and no one seemed to care. We where there to get done as much as we could for Habitat that day. I left sunburned ,sore, tired but mostly with a big smile! I could not wait to get home and tell my friends and family about my day. I so so super excited ! My heart felt good and I was feeling very rewarded for spending my day there. I will keep going back every year to volunteer ! It was...

I think if Buyers and Sellers really understood where we are in this current Real Estate Market, they would then move qucikly ahead to get their needs taken care of in Real Estate "NOW", rather than later.  Mortgage rates continue to be at "Historic Lows";and although home values are "Down", it's a great time to sell an existing home and buy another.  Sure there are trade-offs with what you may be able to sell the existing home for, but you probably are also going to be able to buy another home at a lower price than some later time. Maybe not in the near future, but a little further down the road. If Buyers and Sellers are not careful with making sure they really understand this current Real Estate market and "Act", then it's similar to trying to "Time" the Stock Market, which usually d...

Congrats to the York Rev's Atlantic League ChampsThe York Revolution won their first Atlantic League Championship saturday night by defeating the Bridgeport Bluefish 5 to 4 completing a 4 game sweep. Last year the Revs were worst in the league, but with first year manager Andy Etchebarren (of Baltimore Orioles fame) calling the shots from the dugout they went from worst to champs. York did it in fine fashion to boot coming from a 4 - 1 deficit to win in 10 innings. While obtaining my York Savvy designation I was given a behind the scenes tour of the Rev's home, Sovereign Bank Stadium. A nice place to both play as well as attend a game in the stands. The addition of the York Revolution to the York City landscape has been a resounding success. A celebration is scheduled for Monday at noon...

York City Pa Colonial Courthouse History Rich                Many people that visit York City Pahave no idea the truly rich history. The photo above is of the Colonial Courthouselocated on the corner of West Market St and Codorus Creek. This particular structure is a reproduction of the original building built in 1756. During the American Revolution the building offered refuge to the Second Continental Congress while British troops occupied Philadelphia. At the time it was only building in the area big enough to accommodate them. Most notably is the fact that the Articles of Confederation were debated, and adopted while the Second Continental Congress was in York City Pa. For the nine months that York City Paserved as the Nations capitol, it was home to such notable Americans as Thomas ...

2010 Downtown Kickball Tournament In York CitySaturday October 2nd, at Sovereign Bank Stadium ( home of the York Revolution baseball team) the 2010 Downtown Kickball Tournament with KICK off, sorry I couldn't help that one. Last years event was an absolute blast for both players and spectators. Playing at the stadium brings a real professional feel to the tournament. Teams consist of 10 players, 5 male, 5 female, with 6 additional players for a total of 16 team members. There will be concessions available, as well as a 50/50 raffle, with prizes going to winning teams and most creative team uniform. This was really alot of fun last year and I expect it will be bigger and better this year. If you are interested, more information is available at the website.

              York City Market ConditionsBelow are the market conditions for York City Pa single family homes. As you can see the market in York City Pa continues to be challenged in the wake of the buyers credit. Homes are sitting on the market for far too long as foreclosures continue to hit the market. Unemployment in York City Pa continues to hover between 9.1 and 9.3 percent, poor consumer confidence in the economy as well as lack of jobs has adversely affected the housing market in York City, Pa as well the national market. The bright spot that remains is the record low mortgage rates, so if you are in the market for a home now is definitely the time to buy. Why prospective buyers are still sitting on the fence is beyond me. These record low interest rates are not going to be here...

Hot Rod Parade in Downtown York PaWhile on a local business trip to downtown York Pa I was pleasantly surprised by a Hot Rod parade in downtown York Pa. It was actually kind of funny, as I was driving into town I definitley noticed the police presence coming into town, and I didn't understand the all the people sitting in chairs along the side of the rode. Now this went on for some time, not just a two or three block section, all the way through town. I am such a dork, here I am driving right by the fair grounds with all the signs and all the campers etc, I didn;t notice that it was the annual Hot Rod parade in downtown York Pa. The parade is held every Friday afternoon on the Hot Rod weekend. Well I got into town and parked at the new condo project we have just finished and walked the ...

An Opinion from the Assistant  Pam, Assistant to Kimberly Gribbin Before I started working with Kimberly, I use to think that REALTOR®'s and Brokers made too much money... That the fees I had to pay to sell a home was excessive.  To pay 6% just to put my home in the MLS was stupid... Why would I as a seller ever agree to such highway robbery?  Until I started working in the Real Estate business I never realized what all went into a real estate transaction.  How much education REALTOR®'s need to keep up on all the changes in banking and real estate laws?  How much money it costs to maintain their real estate license?  How much their insurances cost? As independent contractors, Real Estate Agents have to pay for their print and advertising costs upfront, regardless of whether the property...
