Trulia and Zillow don't get their listings from the MLS and require either 3rd party syndication or the listing agents to keep them accurate and sometimes that doesn't happen.

Pleepylee asked:
Why are there so many properties for sale? Maybe panic created by lack of rain? As water level drops in the lake, fewer tourists? Only logical answer. Love to hear from you. Thx.

I understand that termination and cancellation can be different and can have different legal implications for the broker under the listing agreement contract. A cancellation may mean that there is a breach of the agreement while termination may mean that both or one party decided to end the contract earlier and there was no breach. ... more

The Big Bear Valley is under prop 13. That being said, the property is taxed at 1% of accessed value. There are other fees paid with the property taxes. There might geca school bond or a paramedic fee. I do know that your sewer and trash are on the tax bill. Feel free to contact me if I can be of any further help.

If you want to just look at what is available then go to the Grizzly Newspaper in Big Bear online. They pretty much have everything. Keep in mind your needs.

We have felt that the Big Bear Valley has been at the bottom for about a year now and the media is finally catching up with our beliefs but they are always behind and report after the fact.
With interest rates as low as they are and prices at the bottom I cannot think of a better time for anyone to purchase property. Big Bear is considered one of the highest incomes per capita due to the high income of our buyers. We are a resort location and most properties are vacation homes for people who can simply afford them. our areas don't drop in value quite as much as other areas in California. Some hold value a little stronger than other areas in Big Bear but I personally invest in Big Bear property so I back up my statements with actions.

Our police station is on the corner of Big Bear Blvd and S'ummit Blvd. City Hall is on Big Bear Blvd with the nearest cross street of Tulip as you come into the valley over the dam along with Planning and Development. The county planning and development is located at the same place as the Sherrif's dept which is the police station.
If you contact me I can discuss crime in our Valley but honestly there just isn't much to speak of.
I've been licensed in Big Bear for over 30 years and crime is so rare that it is big news when it happens and the culprits are found in short order. We do not have gangs or drive bys or murders like other cities might have. Some of our areas are considered virutally cirme free by our local sherrif's dept. If you want a safe place to live, the Big Bear Valley is one of the best you might want to consider. Let me know if I can help you further. visit my site at www.TinaSchmitt,.com
