Greetings from Big Bear!
Believe it or not, we still have a few activities happening, however they are all online. You can join my Facebook page Events & Activities in Big Bear to see what is going on.
The weather has been warming up and the snow has melted from the ground and streets. The bears are out, I have had the same bear show up 3 nights in a row now.
The lake is closed, fishing is closed, popular trails have been closed, ski resorts are closed, snow play closed, Village is closed, no vacation rentals allowed. Some of the restaurants in the Village and around Big Bear are offering to go orders. We still see people walking the bike paths, etc. We will see if they will end up closing that too.
Vons and a few other stores are now requiring you to wear a mask before coming inside. One way isles are not here yet… Locals on social media are complaining about the visitors still coming up and not wearing masks and crowding the paths and grocery stores. My belief is most of these people are 2nd home owners using their homes since they can’t rent them. There are different points of view on this matter locally. I believe that if you are paying a mortgage then no one has a right to tell you not to stay in your own home. Others believe that wherever you were when they put out the stay at home order, that is where you should stay. Whatever the case, sticking together towards the common good will be what keeps us united.
MARKET UPDATE: We currently have 392 active homes, mobiles and condos on the market in all areas of Big Bear Valley. Over the last week 14 have gone in to escrow, 12 have closed escrow, 4 have cancelled their listing, 7 expired without renewing. I currently have 3 escrows and 5 listings coming soon. Showings can still happen with certain procedures taken, so if you were still wanting to buy or sell contact me. We will see where the market will end up after all this is over…
If you have questions or comments or just want to talk, please reply back, call or text me.
Stay safe, healthy and entertained!
