Homestead Realty

Houser Auctioneers is proud to announce our affiliation with a long standing name in the Lehigh Valley Real Estate business.  Now, Houser Auctioneers and Homestead Realty have joined to offer our sellers all possible avenues of property sale.  As many of our fans know, in addition to being a professional auctioneer, Doug has achieved the status of Real Estate Broker.  In actuality, Doug has been selling real estate privately since 1973 when he obtained his real estate sellers license and began selling property with Homestead Realty.

Homestead Realty was founded in the mid 1960’s by the late Helen Kline.  Operating from an office in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, Homestead Realty has thrived for more than 45 years as a trusted real estate company in the Lehigh Valley.  As a member of the Lehigh Valley Multilist association and with real estate sales covering Lehigh, Carbon, Schulkyll, Northampton, and Luzerne counties, Homestead Reality has operated under the same principles that have made Houser Auctioneers so successful.  Honesty, Integrity, and Hard Work are the elements that have joined Houser Auctioneers with Homestead Realty.  That union now offers our buyers and sellers one more option in the sale and purchase of real estate.

Now, you may ask why we are providing the option for real estate sale with a broker after I have previously explained our belief in real estate at public auction.  Well, the answer is pretty simple.  With the amount of experience Doug holds, he knows that not all properties are suited for public auction.  That is the knowledge he offers when it comes to the sale of your real estate.  Doug will provide you honest and frank information regarding the sale of your property.  He will not set unobtainable goals to list a property.  He would rather see a successful sale and a satisfied buyer/seller  than a property that sits on the market for too long.

Below, you will see several properties listed with Homestead Realty.  These properties are all listed in the Lehigh Valley Multi-list system and are subject to the same rules of sale associated with private real estate listings.  Doug Houser is the listing broker.  If you would like more information on any property below, please call Doug at 610-799-2396 or e-mail this web site and I will ensure your questions are answered quickly and accurately.
