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.

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.

$18,000 IN COMBINED HOMEBUYER TAX CREDITS FOR A LIMITED TIME

Californians have a brief window of opportunity to receive up to $18,000 in combined federal and state homebuyer tax credits.  To take advantage of both tax credits, a first-time homebuyer must enter into a purchase contract for a principal residence before May 1, 2010, and close escrow between May 1, 2010 and June 30, 2010, inclusive.  Buyers who are not first-time homebuyers may use the same timeframes to receive up to $16,500 in combined tax credits if they are long-time residents of their existing homes as permitted under federal law, and they purchase properties that have never been previously occupied as provided under California law.
Under the federal law slated to soon expire, a first-time homebuyer may receive up to $8,000 in tax credits, and a long-time resident may receive up to $6,500, for certain purchase contracts entered into by April 30, 2010 that close escrow by June 30, 2010.  Additionally, under a newly enacted California law, a homebuyer may receive up to $10,000 in tax credits as a first-time homebuyer or buyer of a property that has never been occupied.  The new California law applies to certain purchases that close escrow on or after May 1, 2010 (see Cal. Rev. & Tax Code section 17059.1(a)(4)).  California law generally allows buyers of never-occupied properties to reserve their credits before closing escrow, but buyers seeking to combine the federal and state tax credits will not be able to satisfy the timing requirements for such reservations (see Cal. Rev. & Tax Code section 17059.1(c)(1)(A)).  Other terms and restrictions apply to both tax credits.
For more information, C.A.R. offers a Homebuyer Tax Credit Chart with a side-by-side summary of the federal and California laws.  C.A.R. also offers a legal article entitled Homebuyer Tax Credit Update.
