5 New Bank Owned Homes in the Big Bear Area.

I preview all 5 of these homes this week.

  • 41770 Tanager is in a nice location with easy access to the grocery stores, restaurants, and ski slopes. It was built in 1977, and the interior still feels that age. Lots of square footage, and a large lot make this home an appealing choice for buyers looking for a deal. At the list price this home is $116 a square foot in Big Bear Lake East.
  • 843 Orange sits in a beautiful location in Sugarloaf. This home has recent upgrades and is steps to the National Forest. The home needs a little TLC, but with 2580 sq ft for only $229,900, it is priced at only $89 per foot.
  • 508 Kean is a great find. This home sits high on the hill and has tree top views. The 2 car detached garage is oversized. The homes has 2 bedrooms, but the downstairs den could be split to allow for an additions bedroom space if desired. I don’t expect this one to last long. I sold this home to the previous owner for $310,000 in May of 2007.
  • 42736 Peregrine is in lower Moonridge near the base of Bear Mountain Ski area and the Bear Mountain Golf Course. This home is a cosmetic fixer.
  • 1340 Shay is a rare find for buyers looking for a low priced bank owned with a nice size lot. Carpet, small improvements, and some sweat equity could pay off big with this opportunity home.

If you would like to discuss Big Bear Real Estate, or schedule a showing for any of these homes, please give me a call.

Thanks!

CALIFORNIA’S TAX CREDIT MONIES MAY GO FAST

The $100 million allocated for California’s first-time homebuyer tax credits may be depleted in about 10 to 20 days or sooner, according to C.A.R.’s Economics team.  California’s Franchise Tax Board (FTB) plans to begin accepting applications on May 1, 2010 for tax credits up to $10,000 for first-time homebuyers and for homes that have never been previously occupied.  However, the total tax credit allocation for all taxpayers is $100 million for first-time homebuyers and $100 million for new homes, both on a first-come, first-served basis.

C.A.R.’s forecast of 10 to 20 days to deplete the $100 million allocation for first-time home buyers is based on estimated May sales figures and other parameters.  It does not take into account the possibility that buyers scheduled to close escrow in April may delay closing until May to take advantage of the tax credit.  If a shift in closings from April to May occurs, the first-time homebuyer tax credits may be depleted even more quickly than indicated above.

Applications for the California tax credit must be faxed to the FTB after escrow closes.  The FTB will update its website when the 2010 application form and other information become available.

REALTORS® are reminded not to give their clients any tax or legal advice, such as the availability of funds under the California tax credit program.  Agents should encourage their clients to seek specific advice from an accountant, attorney, or other professional as they deem appropriate.

For more information, please refer to C.A.R.’s Homebuyer Tax Credit Chart 2010 .

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.
