Greetings from Big Bear!
The weather has been great! Blue skies with temperatures in the mid 80’s. Over the last 2 days the excruciating heat off the mountain has created late afternoon clouds and can quickly turn into flash floods in certain areas of Big Bear. I have seen it pour at my house and nothing happen in Big Bear Lake. Be prepared for the quick afternoon weather changes if you will be hiking.
Today is the Chili Cook off and the taste testing starts at 11 a.m. For a list of all of the events and activities please see below. You can also join my Events & Activities in Big Bear Facebook Page where I put all events that are not listed on the flyer below.
MARKET UPDATE: If you are a buyer now is a great time to buy! We have a ton of inventory, more than I have seen in Big Bear in about 3 years. We currently have 608 homes on the market in all areas of Big Bear. Interest rates have dropped and are expected to drop more. If you need a lender contact me and I can refer you to a couple local lenders that are great at their job. In the last 30 days 98 homes closed escrow — 0 in Baldwin Lake; 24 in Big Bear City; 20 in Big Bear Lake Central, East and West; 7 in Erwin Lake; 1 in Fawnskin; 5 in Fox Farm; 23 in Moonridge; and 18 in Sugarloaf. There are currently 140 homes in escrow.
If you are a buyer or seller of the biggest purchase of your life, a home, why would you use an agent that is not familiar with the area? All of those commercials for Purple Bricks saying you don’t get anything more for your money is such a farce and the public saw through it with Purple Bricks losing tons of money and now leaving the US. If you want to read more about that you can go to this link: https://www.usnews.com/news/technology/articles/2019-07-03/purplebricks-says-to-pull-out-of-us-business There is no replacement for face to face contact with an experienced local agent.
