Sold in Big Bear Week Ending 8/23/2009Statistics for Homes Sold in Big Bear 8/23/2009

Click here to see the details on these 13 homes.

  • 7 of these homes were traditional sellers “54%”, with a price differential of  87.47% of list price and 134 days on the market
  • 6 of these homes were bank owned “46%”, with a price differential of 87.62% of list price and 69 days on the market
  •   *As you can see, homes in the Big Bear area are still selling within 13% of the list price consistently. Buyers that want to purchase here will be disappointed if they expect to find homes selling for 25% or more off of list price. This also means that homes won’t sell until the price gets close to market value. Overpriced homes (over 90% of the listings) will sit with no activity until they lower the price to meet the market.

     I can show you any home for sale in Big Bear.

    Do you want to Sell your Home or get a Zestimate?


    This video will help you understand the accuracy of the Zillow Zestimate. In Big Bear Zillow’s Zestimates are often mislead by the different types of properties available. Zillow doesn’t know that your home is situated with a view of the ski slopes or lake. Zillow doesn’t know if your home sits on Big Bear Lake and has a boat dock. Zillow often uses comparables from Sugarloaf as comps. for homes in Moonridge since they are only a mile or two apart as a crow flies.

    When we look at the statistics for Zillow accuracy for San Bernardino County we see:
    2 out of 5 Stars for Zestimate Accuracy
    99% of the homes are on Zillow
    99% of the Homes have Zestimates
    23% of the Zestimates are within 5% / or 77% are not.
    43% of the Zestimates are within 10% / or 57% are not.
    69% of the Zestimates are within 20% / or 31% are not.
    12.1% Median Error

    I believe that Zillow’s accuracy will improve as they compile more information. Currently market conditions are changing so fast that your home value is a moving target. It’s more important than ever to price your property correctly to create excitement in this volatile market.

    If you want to discuss the Big Bear Real Estate Market, please give me a call.
