Wherever you decide to buy, Google it, talk to people in the community, and local authorities to be sure all of your needs are met. It might even be a good idea to do an extended vacation with family and friends in any of the communities you are considering. Ask their opinions of the area so you can be sure to make a sound decision. What might be a fit for one person or family, may not be a fit for someone else. Also, ask whoever you choose as a buyers agent to run comparables over the past few years to show you resale ability and time on market, should you decide to sell.

There are several opportunities in the Raceway area. I am a REALTOR that works both the Philadelphia Suburbs and the Carbon/Monroe County areas in the area you mention.

I am including my website info for you, and from there you may get in contact with me.
A second home is a dream come true for many people. I would start by finding a good local realtor that services the location. I know that there are a couple of really good outfits there. RE/MAX has a strong presence. Thus, I would go to http://www.remax.com to search for a local agent and to search for properties. Or if you see a certain company have a lot of listings in the area that you are interested, I would suggest to find a buyers agent from that company as well. As far as property searches, feel free to use our website below to search for properties as well.
