A few notes about the market –
The residential inventory dropped under 1000 for the first time in a few years. This is mainly because many properties came off of the market as of the 1st of the year. I do expect some of them to come back on the market in the next few weeks so the number of homes for sale should push up a little for the short term. It will ultimately drop though during the winter months. Getting down closer to 800-900 homes for sale would be my guess.
Given that this was the first week of 2009, sales YTD are 0 so far. Obviously, I expect this number to increase. It will interesting to compare the first few months of sales this year as compared to 2008. January & February of last year were the slowest we have seen.
Residential properties continue to dominate what is selling, making up 106 of the 120 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.
