A few notes about the market –
The residential inventory continued to drop for the 4th straight week. There were a lot of properties that showed up as expired listings the first week of 2009, and very few have been re-listed back on the market. This is a good thing, sort of a cleansing of the market. We need to get the unrealistic sellers and properties off of the market so that the realistic and motivated sellers can get the buyer traffic and we can get these properties moved.
6 residential sales so far this year. I expect the January home sales will be very low as a continuation of the limited buyer interest and low sale numbers in November & December of 2008.
Residential properties continue to dominate what is selling, making up 115 of the 130 total properties that are in escrow. This means that if you are trying to sell anything but a residential property in Big Bear, you have your work cut out for you.
