Hello Justin,
Thank you for your question about what would be the safer areas of Big Bear when it comes to looking for a home. When you ask about a safer area, are you talking about safety relating to the crime rate in Big Bear? Or, are you looking for a safe local for the kids so that they can play in the snow and not have to worry about being in harm’s way? If crime is your major concern, there are no guarantees that if you buy in an area that is may considered a safer area that you will be immune from it. Just like down the hill, crime in Big Bear is somewhat random. As an example, I sold a home to a lady a few years ago who felt the local that she bought in was very safe, only to find that when she arrived Friday night she found that her cabin had been broken in to. Generally speaking, I think it is safe to say that for the most part, Big Bear is a fairly safe area to own property.
If you are not familiar with the different areas of the Big Bear Valley, I would be pleased to show you and your family around so that you can see what Big Bear has to offer in some of the different areas. You can reach me at tony@tonycard.com

This is a tough question to ask, and even tougher to answer. The best advice I could give is to drive the neighborhoods you're interested in, and get to know the neighbors of any potential homes you are contemplating buying.

Iif unfamiliar with the area(s) of interest, do research online and do visit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors; for any safety concerns contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
