Bear Sites to See at Big Bear in Southern California       Here is a squirrel hanging out at some new homes recently built in Big Bear. These houses are 4,000 sq. ft. with 4 Masters. A true nature lover as I took a picture of the squirrel and not the house I showed.       Here is a gigantic bear at the 'Discovery Center' around the back side of Big Bear Lake.       This is a Solar Observatory also located on the back side of the lake where the camp grounds are.       This is a lovely view of the lake while I was searching on rocks for some critters. So many nice places to camp or just  stop for a picnic or hike.   Thanks for reading my Real Estate Blog.....................   California is a dream-come-true state no matter what your needs or wants are. We have year round warm weather, be...

Previously Posted on www.tonycard.com I was reading through a Real Estate forum yesterday when I came across a consumer asking the question, "How Much Should I offer On a House?"  The majority of the responses were statements like, Offer 80% of asking price, or my all time favorite answer was LOWBALL the seller.  I'm sorry, but in my opinion, this is not giving a potential buyer in any market good advice!  Real Estate is just like the weather, it's local.  If you want to know what the weather is like in San Francisco, you are not going to listen to the weather reports for Boston.  What is happening in the Real Estate market in Rancho Cucamonga has nothing to do with what the Real Estate market is doing in Big Bear.  Just because you might be able to low ball a seller in San Bernardino d...

One of the most common mistakes sellers make in this market is overpricing their home. It is human nature to think ours is better than the others. In real estate however, the numbers speak for themselves. The quote, "Liars figure, but figures never lie" seems appropriate. The biggest risk with overpricing a home now is that every month the home in on the market the price moves farther down, sometimes 1-2% (for Big Bear) per month. Many times sellers start out too high, and then reduce only to see that they are still be behind the real price. They continue to chase the market down, never getting low enough to get ahead of it, in a what can be a frustrating process. It is similar to missing a train, a train filled with the right buyers. And then moving on to the next stop, only to see th...

How Many Times Have You  Seen A For Sale Sign In Front Of An Interesting Cabin In Big Bear,  And Wondered About The Asking Price? If you're like most people thinking about buying a cabin in the Big Bear Valley, you see ads about cabins for sale, and it seems that everywhere you look, there are signs in front of cabins  that catch your eye. What has stopped you from calling the number on the sign?  Perhaps, like thousands of home buyers, you hesitate to call the real estate company on the "for sale" sign because you don't want a pushy, big mouthed real estate agents calling you at all hours of the day and night. To be honest, I don't blame you. With the age of the computer, there is now  a better way to obtain all of the information on the cabin for sale in a prompt, courteous manner, wi...

One of the most commonly asked questions that I am asked when showing property in Big Bear is, how much should I offer?  Is there a set rule that says I should offer 30% less than the asking price?  This is an excellent question and it is also a difficult question to answer. The reason I say this is because if you haven't gone through the education phase of looking at homes, you're not going to have any idea what a good value is.  When you review 30 to 50 listings on line, drive by 10-20 of them,  and then look at 5-10, you will recognize the cabins that stand out as a great value.  You'll also recognize the cabins that stand out as being anything but a deal.   Seller's price their homes differently reasons.  Let's take a look at some of them. 1. Ridiculously Overpriced Big Bear Cabin! ...

Most people think that the arrival of November is the start of the holiday season.  After all, Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  When I think of November, I think of the Santa Ana winds.  There hasn't been a year that has gone by without the Santa Ana winds howling through the Inland Empire in November.  It never fails that as soon as the Santa Ana winds start to blow, fires seem to break out.  There are times when these winds blow down a power line and this is the reason for the fire.  But in many cases, these fires start because of some sick arsonist. November 24, 1980 is a day that is etched into my brain for the rest of my life.  That particular morning I received a phone call from my younger brother.  He was needing some help repairing a fence that had ...

I chose to write this blog because of an issue that has come up in one of my escrows.  I really didn't give this any thought, until I heard another agent in our office having the same issue.  As it appears that this is not a isolated incident, I felt it was worth discussing in my REO Blog. My clients found the home of their dreams, a REO property in Big Bear City, and after some negotiations with the bank, got an agreement and we went to escrow.  As with so many REO's this house needed some repair work.  We really didn't know the extent of the work needed until after the home inspection.  The repair list wasn't to bad and my clients are still moving towards the close. Unbeknown to me,  the lender asked my client to send them a copy of the home inspection, and it was then that things got...

In this ever changing Real Estate Market, we are seeing a lot more bank owned, (REO) properties for sale as well as Short Sales.  Once the home has been foreclosed on and becomes a bank owned or REO, we all know that the banks have already taken a hit on the price and in most cases, pay as few of the closing costs as possible.  But what about a short sale?  Will the seller pay some of the buyers closing costs?  Will the seller pay for a home warranty?  What can I expect the seller to pay on a short sale? I have a number of listings that are short sales and I just shake my head at some of the offers that other agents write.  I think that the buyer and agent forget that you are really negotiating with the bank.  All the bank is interested in is the bottom line.  They know that if someone ...

Everyone is looking for a deal these days so below is information regarding upcoming auctions for property in the Big Bear Valley.  Auctions aren't always the best deal in town.  Sellers that have a lot of equity in their home sometimes price their home more aggressively and we have bank owned properties that are often better deals than what you find at auctions.  If you are in the market for a good deal, contact me first.  I can email you a list of properties regardless of who's selling it.  If you plan on going to an auction exercise the following advise: Do your research and have a good understanding of what needs to be fixed prior to making a bid.  Most properties sold at the auction are sold "as is" with no warranties.  Knowing what's sold in the area and what your return on your ...
