latrobe pa: Pepperwood Grill's Grand ReOpening in Greensburg, PA! - 07/29/11 08:06 AM
Pepperwood Grill's Grand ReOpening in Greensburg,PA takes place tonight!
Decisions, decisions.  There are so many wonderful options for us here in central Westmoreland County to enjoy fine foods, great wines, and fun entertainment.  And of course on every Friday night during the summer we are treated to Summersounds Concerts In The Park at St. Clair Park in Greensburg.  Tonight the Concert features Hayes Carll as he brings his colorful brand of character-driven Texas country to Western PA.  A good place to be - in the shade on the hillside, drinking in the scenes and sounds.  Bring you friends, your family and your dogs.  Chill out with … (3 comments)

latrobe pa: Children's Hospital Free Care Fund Raiser - 11/08/10 11:59 PM
We are blessed in our region to have access to the world-renowned UPMC Children's Hospital to care for our children in medical crisis.  But the families of many children, both here and afar, often do not have the medical insurance or resources to take advantage of this incredible institution.  The Hospital's Free Care Fund is a primary source of assistance for these families.
Each year our company, Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, and Howard Hanna Agents and Offices throughout Western PA devote incredible energy, talent, time and personal resources in developing and holding fund raising events in each of our local communities.

latrobe pa: Bump The Price - We Need Room To Negotiate! - 11/01/10 02:04 AM
It is a variation on the self-fulfilling prophecy. 
Buyers ASSUME the price is merely a target, an inflated number not based on any accurate analysis of supply, demand, value or desirablity.  Sellers too have their own opinions as to the value of their home - often based upon EMOTION versus the market analysis that should tell the real tale.  And besides, they tell their agent, or their agent tells them, we will have to negotiate so we'd better raise the price.
After many years in the hotel industry prior to entering real estate I see some of the same patterns of artificial price inflation.  Despite … (4 comments)

latrobe pa: The Holidays are a good time to list...Really! - 10/30/10 12:11 AM
This is an exceptionally well-thought-out list of things to think about for our seller prospects.  At a time when there are so many fence-sitters in the real estate market this gives good incentive to move right now.  Add to this some other observations:
Interest rates have never been lower in our lifetimes.  It is arguably likely that they have nowhere to go but up in the future - meaning the longer folks wait, the more likelyhood that it will become more expensive for buyers to buy.
Folks go home for the holidays to visit family and friends.  There may be many out-of-towners … (4 comments)

latrobe pa: Halloween History & HallowBoo at Idlewild Park - 10/20/10 03:30 AM
Hallowe'en, a Scottish contraction of the term All Hallows Evening is a rather ancient tradition with both pagan and Christian roots.  In the Celtic tradition it represents a fall festival called Samhain, denoting the end of "longer days" and the commencement of "darker days".  It was thought that at this breakpoint in seasonal cycles the barriers between the living and spirits worlds became "thin".  Lighting of bonfires and donning of masks were thought to protect one by warding off less kindly spirits.
In the Christian tradition the feasts, festivals and religious celebrations of All Saints Day, and the following All Souls Day, celebrate not … (0 comments)

Each quarter of the year our community is blessed by a new edition of the Laurel Mountain Post - an extraordinary publication dedicated to the unique charms, the rich history and the ongoing pleasures of living in the shadow of the Laurel Mountains of Western PA.
