Lancaster County PA Realty Check: March 2008

Think Spring!

 Spring arrived yesterday!  The vernal equinox is here.  It didn't feel like Spring yesterday, what with the cold winds and temperatures in the 30s.  Today in Lancaster County, PA the day started in the 30s as well - but it warmed up and the sun is out!

Buyers, who may have been hibernating for the winter, have been timidly emerging from their caves and testing the housing waters again.

Spring is a time for rebirth.  It's always been my favorite season.  You can actually smell the difference in the air.  There's an excitement, a feeling of possibilities, an energy that seems to return to both our surroundings and to ourselves.

Today is Good Friday.  I have a feeling that new and positive things are going to be in store for us in the coming real estate season.  I'm motivated to work hard and help to make those good things happen.  But not this weekend.  This weekend I'm going to quietly appreciate the Spring weather and the greening of the grass.  To all my friends who read and contribute to Active Rain, I wish a happy and peaceful Easter.
