What is holding you up and buying your Mountain Cabin? Big Bear Real Estate is a great place to look for you second home, or even your full time residence. Just a note, mortgage rates are increasing, and are expected to keep rising, too. That means home buyers will see a larger chunk of their incomes devoted to mortgage payments. If you don't know if you can buy a home here in the Big Bear Valley, give me a call and I have a lender for you. I think you would be surprised at how you can afford a home, even a second home. Our inventory is going up every day, but at the same time it is staying the same. Buyers are snatching up the good ones as soon as they hit the market. I went down the hill to the valley and boy are you hot down there! We on the other hand are very chilly. We walk the Village on Pine Knot and get to snuggle up to outdoor fire pits and take in the beauty of the changing of the colors on the trees. We get to put on our flannels, our comfy clothes and walk around the village. Next week is Halloween! Our Big Bear community closes down the Village so the kids are safe and get to trick or treat with everyone in one area. Young and Old really enjoy this evening in the Village. Snow Summit has a pumpkin carving contest this Saturday. Also, Bear Mountain Resort has free pumpkins tomorrow starting at 10am. I just got back from driving around and the beauty is overwhelming! We don't need to live on the East Coast, we have our own Fall colors here! The trees are just illuminated. It's amazing how they stand out and it looks like a shining light is just shining on them. It's just breathtaking! Big Bear Lake, Big Bear City, Sugarloaf, Erwin Lake, Fawnskin are the areas that you need to look into! Come and visit soon! We love having you all up here. If you want to start looking go to my website and have fun shopping around! Who doesn't love to shop! And if you are ready to buy I am here ready to help you buy your vacation home in the Mountains of San Bernardino County! See you soon!
