Greetings from Big Bear!
The Events & Activities are below.
Winter has officially hit! It started snowing on Wednesday and by evening there was almost a foot of snow. It snowed all day on Thanksgiving and this morning it’s almost 3 ft where I live! An endangered Merlin caught a blackbird right in front of me too while going out to the car. Here are photos from Wednesday from today.
MARKET UPDATE: It’s Black Friday and there are still several sellers that want to sell before the end of the year. There are 466 homes on the market in all areas of Big Bear Valley, including condos. This time of year, people who want to purchase a home for a vacation rental are out and looking. I listed one yesterday at 339 E. Big Bear Blvd. that is 2 bedrooms and a loft with 1 bathroom, w/d hookups, all appliances and forced air heat on a large lot for $199,900. Here is the virtual tour if you want to see more photos: https://www.tourfactory.com/2682085
Sellers still want to sell and I have a dozen or so buyers waiting for the right home to buy. Some of them have lost a bid war and will buy right away when that house comes up. Please let me know if you are ready to sell, you may have the home my buyers are looking for!
Here are the current road conditions. You can also call 1-800-427-7623 for current highway conditions. Please research chain control locations as Caltrans is currently working to update chain control descriptions for consistency with internet mapping, like Google Maps & Mapquest.
