Homes Sold in Moonridge Area of Big Bear

These are the statistics for the 90 homes that have sold in the Moonridge area of Big Bear since June 1, 2010.

90 Homes Sold in Moonridge Area of Big Bear

One of the more important numbers on this summary is the price differential. At 98.38%, this tells me a couple things that buyers and sellers in Moonridge should note. First, most homes sold in Moonridge during this time period sold within 2% of the list price. Sellers that list their homes with a price cushion that exceeds 10% will not see the showing activity required to produce an offer. Buyers that offer 10 – 15% below list price will often be outbid. Knowing what the market value really is will be the difficult factor for both buyers and sellers. With 142 active listings in the Moonridge area, we are now at a 9.4 month supply. There are 19 home that are in escrow currently. During this same period last year we had 117 closed transactions in Moonridge. While days on the market often is used by buyers to determine what price to offer, the more important number is days at the current price.

  • 27 of these were “Bank Owned”  = 40%
  • 9 of these were “Short Sales” = 13%

  • The median sold price was $194,950.

If Your Going To Sell, I Wouldn’t Wait For The Market….

I was at this same meeting yesterday with Tyler. Even though this isn’t a positive message, I think it is important for sellers to hear. Thanks Tyler!

Something that I also heard from Leslie Appleton Young (Chief Economist for CAR) is that over 50% of the homes that sold in California last year had multiple offers. This is important to understand as a buyer, great deals are not found by only one buyer.

16 Homes Sold this Week in Big Bear 3/20/2010

Click here to see the details for these homes.

  • 9 of these homes (56%) were bank owned foreclosures, with average days on the market of 63.
  • 4 of these homes (25%) were short sales, with average days on the market of 292.
  • 2 of these homes (12.5%) were traditional sellers, with average days on the market of 67.

The ratio of closed short sales is the highest that I have seen this week. I don’t think this is a sign of things to come, just a coincidence….

Price differential is still holding high at 99.82% of list price. Overpriced properties are not selling. If you are a seller in this market, your list price is the most important thing that your agent provides to you. Don’t make the mistake of interviewing multiple agents and selecting the agent with the highest price, or lowest commission.

As you can see, homes are selling in Big Bear. There is no shortage of buyers for homes that are priced at market value. If your home is on the market for more than 30 days and it hasn’t sold, chances are your overpriced.

2009 Big Bear Real Estate Recap

Year end inventory of residential homes available in Big Bear is 678 units. Sales of residential homes for the year were 872 (669 in 2008 +30 %) . This gives us a 9.34 month supply at this rate of sale. When I broke down the price ranges of homes available and homes sold these are the numbers.

2009:

  • Homes under $300,000 / active inventory 357 units / units sold in 2009 = 602 / 7.11 month supply
  • Homes $300,000 – $700,000 / active inventory 210 units / units sold in 2009 = 222 / 11.3 month supply
  • Homes over  $700,000 / active inventory 112 units / units sold in 2009 = 48 / 28 month supply
  • Homes in the highest price range (over $700,000) have 16.5 % of the inventory, but make up only 5.5% of the unit sales.
  • Homes $300,000 – $700,000 have 31% of the inventory, and 25% of the sales.
  • Homes under $300,000 have 41% of the inventory and have created 69% of the sales in 2009.

In 2008 the picture was different:

  • Homes in the highest price range (over $700,000) made up 7.3% of the unit sales.
  • Homes $300,000 – $700,000 contributed 33% of the sales.
  • Homes under $300,000 were 59% of the closed escrows.

Unit sales have gone up 30% in 2009, but for the mid and upper price ranges they are down. I think in 2010 we will see more foreclosures in the higher price ranges than we have in 2009. This will require traditional sellers in the higher price ranges to reduce their list prices if they want to sell. Homes in the the lowest price  may see prices stabilize in 2010.

What’s Selling in Big Bear?

13 homes have closed escrow here in Big Bear during the first 13 days. (Click here to see the details) 

The price differential of 94.5% is a good indication of what you might expect to pay when you find a home that stands out as a good value. Most homes in the Big Bear area have sold within 8% of list price this entire year. The homes that are over priced just don’t get looked at and don’t sell.

The current residential inventory is now at 708, the lowest level in the past 3 1/2 years. 

Last month we had 92 homes close escrow which gives us a  7.7 months supply at this rate.

Year to date we have closed 822 homes, a 27.2% increase over last years 646 for the same period.   

While interest rates are still very good, selection is getting limited. If this trend continues, I think prices will stabilize.

Does your Big Bear Real Estate agent tell you what you want to hear, or the truth?

Listening to a Real Estate agent that has their interests in front of yours can be a big mistake. I must admit that I have a problem, I am often Brutally Honest.  Being honest is not the problem, but I know I could improve on the way I deliver the message.

I don’t do the sugar-coating thing well. I tend to tell it like it is and live with the consequences. I won’t tell you what you want to hear, unless I believe it to be the truth. It really makes things easy to remember.

When you work with me, you might hear more than you want to hear about the house. I might get in the way sometimes as if I were buying the house myself. Sometimes I will want repairs made that the buyer doesn’t seem to care about or is not aware of. That’s just how I am.

If I am representing you as a buyer, I might tell you all of the things that the seller would rather have you overlook. I will more than likely be at the home inspection and in addition to thoroughly looking at the items that the home inspector discovers, I might ask him to look at things that he didn’t discover or mention. I will also let you know as a buyer that repairs done by sellers are often done with the cheapest materials and least expensive labor that the seller can find. This doesn’t always equate to the best results, so I will often recommend that we get a bid from someone who knows how to do the repair correctly, at a fair price. I might tell you that the house you like is over priced, or not the best value. Isn’t that the type of honesty you deserve?

 

If I am your listing agent I will tell you the recommended list price based on market conditions, not your needs or debt. That’s not to say I am not flexible at all or sympathetic to your financial situation, but I will give you the real price, even if you don’t like it. I will recommend the work needed to get the home sold and lead you through the selling process. I will work with you on improvements that need to be made by providing contractors and handyman that will perform their jobs as professionals. I will be available to return your calls timely and with real answers. Don’t be surprised if I tell you your home is worth less than some other agents will tell you. I won’t give you a price that is 20% above what I believe is the real value just to get your signature on the listing agreement. I might offer to show you the other homes that a buyer will look at in your price range to show you the reason your home needs to be priced correctly.

After all, what sign do you want to have hung in front of your home in 90 days?

If your agent of choice is unable to put your interests first, you need to find one that will.
