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.

Sold in Moonridge Big Bear

As a resident of the Moonridge area since 1990, I can help you select the perfect home for your family. Don’t hesitate and miss one of the best buying opportunities in years in this beautiful mountain resort community.

$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.

Select Your Big Bear Real Estate Agent Carefully.

Selecting your Real Estate agent is important.

Many times buyers and sellers in Big Bear make the mistake of selecting an out of the area agent that is not geographically competent in the Big Bear area. These agents often don’t know how to find Big Bear, so finding you a home may be very challenging. They may not know the differences between the neighborhoods of Sugarloaf and Fawnskin. This results in poor representation and dissatisfaction for you, the client.

Agents from out of the area can’t possibly be up to date on the local market conditions and inventory. I spend 6 -7 days a week studying the Big Bear inventory and I feel like if I miss a day, my inventory knowledge will be less than my clients deserve.

Twice in the past 30 days I have had agents that were friends or family of a buyer say they are going to represent their family member or friend in the transaction. This is fine with me, as long as I am not going to be doing their work.  Having your son-in-law that works Real Estate in Orange County call the listing agent in Big Bear and asking him or her to open the listing and show it to you, because he’s too lazy to drive up to Big Bear, open the house and investigate the property (represent you) doesn’t equate to good service.

Is this out of area (and touch) agent now going to advise you on what to offer for the property you want to buy? They haven’t even joined the local multiple listing service so that they can be knowledgeable of recent sales and listing activity. Most of these out of area agents have never sold or owned a mountain home. You will also soon learn that they won’t be present for your home inspection, contractors bids or walk through either because it is to inconvenient to make the trip. They are only thinking about one person, and it’s not you. They won’t know who the local home inspectors are and may send an out of the area inspector to do the inspection. These out of area inspectors may not even know what a stop and waste valve is or how to test one.

An out of area agent won’t be able to tell you about the neighborhood, or the depth of the lake in the different areas. They won’t know the procedure for winterizing your home, or the location of the stop and waste valve. They won’t know the utility companies for the home or where the offices are located for these services. They really won’t know as much as you do, since they often don’t even visit the house before writing the offer.                                                                                                             

It’s kind of like shopping for a computer at Wal-Mart.You might get lucky and find the right computer with the features you need, but chances are you’ll wish you had a salesperson that knew about the inventory. If you’re looking for someone who doesn’t know the Big Bear Real Estate inventory, hire that out of area agent.

I can show you any home for sale in Big Bear, but I won’t work in any other areas!
