    5 Quick Facts about the Big Bear Real Estate Market February 2009

    Some quick facts.

    1. Active residential listings are now at 889, the lowest level in over 3 years.
    2. 58 of the 889 listed homes are foreclosure listings, or only 6.52% (Very Low Number).
    3. 50 closed residential sales in the Big Bear MLS for the month of February, compared to 34 in 2008. (47% increase)
    4. 25 of these 50 (50%) were foreclosures and 4 were short sales. (8%) of sales.
    5. In February 2008, 9 of the 34 residential sales were foreclosures (26%) and none of them were short sales.

    I see a trend. 2 months of unit sales increases, and inventory is going down not up…..

    What do you think this is signaling?

    Remember, Real Estate is Local!

    Lakefront Homes in Big Bear

    Big Bear Lake has some great lakefront homes available.

    Big Bear Lakefront Home

    Big Bear Lakefront Home

    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.
