August 2014 Big Bear Real Estate Stats/What’s Up this Weekend

Hi folks!
Below are last month’s Big Bear real estate stats.  Once again, we see another month-over-month increase in the average sales price for the vast majority of areas that we track.  According to Zillow, these trends are expected to continue: “Big Bear Lake home values have gone up 5.6% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise 6.8% within the next year.” and  “Big Bear City home values have gone up 8.5% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise 7.3% within the next year.”  With more and more buyers getting priced out of the markets in L.A., O.C., and San Diego, we are even seeing more first-time buyers up here now (just wanting to get something affordable that’s still in CA),  in addition to all of the second-home-buyers that we normally get.  If this trend continues, I think Zillow’s estimates will probably be a little lower than reality.
