December 2016 Big Bear Real Estate Stats/New MLS

We made it through another holiday weekend and, so far, it’s been the busiest winter season we can remember up here!  Between the changes made by Mammoth and the great snowfall we’ve gotten so far (not to mention the additional 2-4ft we’re supposed to get by next Tuesday) the number of visitors has dramatically increased.  More visitors always bring more business and there were 123 sales last month and another 170 in escrow.  A large number of those sales occurred closer to the slopes and the average $/sqft in Moonridge jumped to over $250/sqft!!

The Board of Realtors up here just changed MLS providers, so you may have noticed that you either stopped getting search results or are getting them in a different format,  This new MLS has a lot more restrictions (number of clients, number of results, number of auto emails, etc); so if you are no longer getting results or you would like us to tweak your search, please let us know.  In addition, to avoid spam, this new MLS requires the client to open the first “Welcome to the Portal” email and to log in at least once every 30 days or it automatically discontinues your search.  There are definitely going to be some growing pains for all the realtors up here when it comes to this new MLS, so please don’t hesitate if you want us to re-activate your search or make any changes.  In addition, there are some nice improvements, like market updates and a new link where you can do your own searches at any time:
Have a great weekend!!
