The Lehigh Valley has seen healthy growth in the past few years.   More commerce is finding its way to the Valley and with it comes jobs and potentially more home buyers.  The median home price from 2017 is up 18.5% to $225,000 with sales reporting over 98% list to sale price ratios.   Rates are in the rise and inventory is low.  Many buyers are still looking to find homes.   See article by the Morning Call: http://www.mcall.com/business/realestate/mc-biz-lehigh-valley-housing-market-cool-down-july-20180815-story.html#
