Slate Belt Growth is Great for Homeowners | 4667 McDermott Rd, Bangor

Managing Real Estate Broker with Harb DeSa Realty PA# AB066822 | TN# 344201

The population of the Slate Belt in Northampton County, Pennsylvania is expected to increase by 40 percent over the next 20 years.  Ten municipalities in the Slate Belt have partnered together to enhance their growth.

The 10 municipalities are: 

  1. Bangor
  2. East Bangor
  3. Roseto
  4. Pen Argyl
  5. Portland
  6. Wind Gap
  7. Washington Township
  8. Plainfield Township
  9. Lower Mount Bethel Township
  10. Upper Mount Bethel Township

Per Plan Slate Belt, which was published in late 2019, the Slate Belt's rapid growth is likely the result of proximity to the Lehigh Valley's overall growth.  As construction and jobs expands up the Route 33 corridor, there will be a need for additional housing.

Theodore Roosevelt once said, "Every person who invests in well selected real estate in a growing section of a prosperous community adopts the surest method of becoming independent, for real estate is the basis of wealth."  If you're looking to build equity over time, buying the right home in the Lehigh Valley - notably the Slate Belt - is a shrewd move.

This home underwent a major renovation in 2013 and has been meticulously maintained since then. The flooring, roof, and many other important features are only seven years old.  The kitchen includes matching Frigidaire Gallery appliances, a double-bowl sink, and a view of the backyard so you can keep an eye on things.  Organizing your kitchen is easy with so many drawers.  Cleaning is simple with the hardwood floors.

Guests can enter the home by strolling along the artfully designed walkway while viewing the colorful landscaping.  You can also enter through the mud-room door or via the back deck. The sprawling, flat yard is so easy to maintain. The wooded area of the lot provides privacy and an opportunity for exploration.

Create works of art or work effectively in the den just off the breakfast nook. Take note of the many large windows throughout the home. Natural light creates a warm environment.

There are three zones for heating with the new oil furnace, giving you control of the temperature settings.  The heat pump has one zone and provides energy savings.

The basement also includes a bonus room with many potential uses. This well-designed, sturdy home was built in a climate-controlled factory and set on a permanent foundation.
