Pocono Mountain Specialty Properties - Lakefront, Gameland etc...

Owning a home in the Poconos for some is a Dream Come True. With so much outdoor activity at your doorstep you just can't find better value for your home spending dollars. As of this writing there are currently 3,898 homes on the market in the Pocono Mountain MLS! Of those nearly 4,000 homes only 92 are Lakefront and 55 are Gameland Bordering Properties. This is a very small percentage of the total and therefore is the reason for their higher property values. Uniqueness in real estate ranks right up there with "location, location ,location". God is not making anymore Water or Gamelands. The properties that border these unique settings are therefore pulling in the higher dollars. Fret not though as there have been a few here and there popping up under current market value so the idea for an interested buyer is to be READY when the deal comes up. This means talk to your lender!! Get yourself pre-approvaed for a mortgage so you KNOW going in that you can make it happen! You might consider partnering up with an experienced Realtor such as myself. Someone who keeps an eye on the goings on of the market not just daily but hourly!

Pocono Highlands - A New Active Adult Opportunity

Poconos retirement communities don't come any picture-postcard prettier or more affordable than the Highlands of Golden Oaks Village. Conveniently located on Route 940 just one mile from I-476 (the PA Turnpike’s Northeast Extension) and I-80 near shopping, healthcare facilities and hospitals, the Highlands of Golden Oaks Village's combination of energy efficient, low-maintenance homes and wooded-view homesites means you get access to Pennsylvania real estate — and the active senior retirement of your dreams — at a price you can afford. It's a 55+ community that meshes beautifully with an environment featuring clean air and water, a friendly small-town atmosphere and the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are in a private, limited-access community where urban (and suburban) problems are non-existent. Maintenance such as yard work and snow removal will never be on your "to-do" list and traffic and congestion —everyday challenges in the eastern Poconos — simply don't exist.

Sherman Hosts Downtown Pocono Raceway Festival

Stroudsburg, PA (6/1/2009) - This Saturday the Sherman Theater will celebrate NASCAR's rich history in the Poconos with its inaugural Pocono Raceway Festival event hosted on Main Street in Stroudsburg. Running from noon to 8 p.m. the free festival features an assortment of NASCAR vehicles, live entertainment, games and race simulators, vendors, sidewalk sales, and for the first time ever - a free street concert by the Marshall Tucker Band. The theater will host a dedication ceremony on the festival's main stage in front of the Sherman Theater at 1:30 p.m. The dedication welcomes such notable guests as NASCAR president Mike Helton, Pocono Raceway founder Dr. Joseph Mattioli and current raceway president Brandon Igdalsky along with other invited guests of NASCAR. Immediately following the ceremony, the Sherman Theater will recreate history as it stages a reshoot of one of Stroudsburg's most popular historic photos which was taken directly in front of the Sherman Theater sometime in the late 1940s.
"With our new marquee in place, the festival seemed like the ideal time to reshoot the photo," said Sherman Theater President and CEO Richard W. Berkowitz. "This year is the Sherman's 80th anniversary and we wanted to document the theater's return to prominence in our community." The Pocono Raceway Festival will host more than a dozen racecars including NASCAR's #13, #19, #40, and #74 cars. "Whether or not you are a race fan, downtown Stroudsburg will be in bloom with over 100 vendors and retailers," said Berkowitz. "There will definitely be something for everyone as we roll out the red carpet to kick off the summer season." Along with the wide-variety of activities throughout Main Street, the festival features the talent of many regional musicians. Two stages will be active throughout the day and include performances by: North of the City, The Q & A Session, Randy Bigness & Friends, Long Time Comin', Blues Conspiracy, Riff Raff, TNT, Dealer in Wares, Blue Planet, Boots & Saddles, and of course - The Marshall Tucker Band. This event was made possible by Sherman Theater, Rotary Club of the Stroudsburgs, ESSA Bank and Trust, Pocono Medical Center, Pocono Mountain's Visitors Bureau, Schoch's Harley Davidson, and LT Verrastro Inc. For more information, call the Sherman Theater at 570-420-2808 or visit the Sherman Theater online at

Well Folks it is now officially RACEWEEK here in the Poconos. The crew semi's started rolling into town late Sunday night and campers can be found everywhere that there is a parking lot. If you want to be a part of the circus just jump onto Rte 115 and head south from Blakeslee. As soon as you cross over I-80 you will see the vendors set up on both sides of the road clear on down to the Race Track. Here you can purchase the from the most common to the most exclusive of Nascar Memorabilia. I'm still working on them to get more Greg Biffle Gear though. If it is Earnhardt, Stewart, Gordon, Johnson etc... the memorabilia and assortment of gifts are plenty!
For those of you who have never seen a race at Pocono you should know two things. First it is probably the worst track on the Nascar Circuit to watch the race because of the high banks and the overall enormousness of the track itself. On the positive side the Mattioli's (Owners of Pocono Raceway) put on a First Class Performance as hosts. All along Long Pond Road buses transport racefans from the parking lot to the Grandstand free of charge so after a good morning of some serious tailgating you just mosey through the woods and out onto Long Pond Road and hop on any bus. Parking is FREE as well and that is rare for any sort of major event in todays world!
My suggestion to you is get out there and suck up all the excitement these races bring to the Poconos! Be a part of the Nascar Phenomenon in Pocono.
