October 2018 Big Bear Real Estate Stats/Slopes Open Tomorrow!!

It’s that time of year already!  Snow Summit opens tomorrow and Bear Mountain is scheduled to open for weekends only until Dec.7th, starting next Friday.  Below are last month’s Big Bear real estate statistics.  It was a busy month for what is usually one of the slower months of the year, but keep in mind that most of the listings in October were for escrows that opened in September. As we get into the busy winter season, expect more sales closer to the slopes and less on the Lake.  Speaking of the Lake, there were two that sold last month at “lakeview” rather than “lakefront” prices because they were both very shallow-water lakefronts (one was about 60 yards from the water, at this point, and the other currently has no water in front of it).  Most owners of shallow-water lakefront aren’t selling now, with many of them waiting for the new Water Reclamation project that we first mentioned about 6 months ago to go into operation and start to stabilize lake levels.  That said, it could be a great time to pick up a shallow-water lakefront (if you can find one) and wait for the lake levels to go back up!
