big bear real estate: 96 Homes Sold in the Big Bear Area December 2010 - 01/02/11 07:41 AM

This number will probably rise a little more as sales closed over the past week may still need to be posted to the Big Bear MLS. 96 closed sales for the Big Bear area for the month of December equates to a 20% increase over  year when we only had 80 homes sold during the same period. Inventory levels are also down with only 661 active listings as of this morning. Thats good news for sellers, since less inventory helps to improve the demand.
For the year, we kept pace with units sold. In 2009 there were 892 posted sales in the MLS, … (0 comments)

big bear real estate: Can I Short Sale My Big Bear Cabin? - 12/27/09 03:43 AM
A short sale occurs when someone sells a house or condo for less than the outstanding mortgage debt against the property. Lenders will want to see a true hardship and proof of the borrowers inability to repay the debt. In Big Bear many homes will not qualify for a short sale since they are second homes.
For a primary residence homeowner struggling with mortgage payments, a short sale is a way to get rid of a property. It may be possible for a homeowner to buy another home after two years, depending on the circumstances. Usually after foreclosure, one must wait … (2 comments)
