Lakefront Homes in Big Bear

Big Bear Lake has some great lakefront homes available.

There are 37 lakefront homes available currently. These lakefront homes are priced between $500,000 and $3,100,000. With 17 sold in all of 2008, that is a 2 year supply. Of these 35 active listings, 2 are bank owned (.57%), and 1 is a short sale. I should mention that there is another short sale that is not listed in the local Big Bear MLS (like fishing with no bait). I predict that the 2009 summer season will be a good year for unit sales on lakefront homes in Big Bear since the lake level will be high, and because of market conditions many buyers will think that lakefront homes are selling at huge discounts. They are not. While lakefront home pricing has dropped approximately 15 – 20%over the past 3 years, the drop is much less than the overall Big Bear market.  If you are in the market for a lakefront home in Big Bear, it is not a bad time to start looking.

  1. Mr, Hischler

    I am interested in your information on Big Bear, and I have been reading some of your site reports and testimonials from clients.

    My husband and I are also looking for a retreat from the LA area, as well as an investment property. Our first chaoise is Lake Front. We enjoy the lake in the summer and the kids love the mountain in the winter. However, we are not opposed to a view of the lake with a boat slip.

    Honestly, we live on a 15 acre ranch now, so neighbors are going to be a problem unless we have water out the back door, or we are in the pines with a great view and some privacy. I have two teenage boys, so we need some space inside. I love log cabins and I love pine trees. We are a mix between a Gilligan on the water and an A frame loft in the pines.

    I have been keeping an eye out there for a couple of years now. We have a loan officer who lives in the area that pre approves us for our home purchases. I believe you are right, that this is the time to seriously consider buying.

    Please reply when you can.

    Thank you,

    Lynda Rowland
