Big Bear real estate agent reviews are all over the internet but unfortunately you have to go to a variety of sources to find them. Keep reading to find out where to find them, what to look for in an agent review or testimonial, and what questions to ask before you hire a Big Bear Realtor to represent you.
When the quality of your agent can save you (or cost you) tens of thousands of dollars it makes sense to do some research before hiring a real estate agent. Some people spend more time shopping around to save a few bucks on a TV than they do selecting the person they will entrust with negotiating the purchase or sale of their most valuable asset. Too often I hear stories of real estate transactions gone horribly wrong but it doesn’t have to be that way. Choose the best Big Bear real estate agent from the start and you dramatically improve your chances of having a great home buying or home selling experi ...

One of the most sought after aspects when buying a Lake Arrowhead home is the atmosphere of living in the mountains. Renters and full-time Lake Arrowhead homeowners want to experience the winter season of Lake Arrowhead.
A fire crackling in the background as they gather together with their family is exactly what they’re looking for! Yet, if you’ve never owned a fireplace before, you may have some questions.
How do you use a Lake Arrowhead wood-burning fireplace?
1. Have your chimney inspected.
Before you do anything with your fireplace, have it inspected for your safety. Make sure the person who is inspecting your chimney is a licensed professional. Before your first fire of every winter season, have this done. It’s an annual inspection to keep you and your family safe.
2. Get the fireplace ready!
If there are any old ashes in the fireplace, it’s time to clean those out. Too many ashes can make it difficult to start your fireplace. Also, it doesn&. ...

It’s time to separate the Lake Arrowhead home buying myths from facts. Don’t let a myth be the reason why you don’t end up buying your dream home. An experienced local Lake Arrowhead Realtor would be able to answer any questions you may have about buying a home, but researching before never hurt anyone!
Myth: Only people who make a lot of money can afford a second home.
If only people who were wealthy were able to afford a house, then the majority of Lake Arrowhead homeowners wouldn’t be able to own their homes. Many loans won’t break the bank when it comes to the payments. In today’s economy, the monthly fee for paying off your house could be even cheaper than renting!
When it comes to loans, the critical part is to have a good credit score! As long as your credit score shows that you pay your payments on time, then you have a high chance of being approved for a home loan. One important fact to remember when it comes to m! ...

Lake Arrowhead home buyers have started to rely more and more on the internet when searching for their dream home! The reason for this is that the internet is convenient. Whenever you have a free moment, you are able to jump online or on your phone to search through photos of homes for sale. For people who live chaotic and busy lives, searching online is the easiest route! Even so, I recommend not solely relying on the web to purchase a home. The best idea is to use the internet as a step in the overall process.
Experienced Realtors use Tour Factory and their personal websites to upload photos of the homes that are for sale. Detailed descriptions and listed amenities help viewers get an overview of the house. Typically, a general overview is not enough for a home buyer to know if they would like to buy or not. Buying a house is a huge decision and not one to be taken lightly. That is why a buyer should always visit the property before signing the real estate contract to become the new! ...

How do you make your offer stand out above the rest? Write a letter to the seller! An offer doesn’t connect the seller and the buyer emotionally but a letter can. When possible buyers write about their hopes and dreams that would begin at purchasing the seller’s property, it introduces the buyer on a personal level.
When a buyer isn’t able to submit the highest offer, a letter is one way to shine above the other offered price. It isn’t a full proof way to secure your offer, but it does improve the chances of it being accepted or considered by the owner.
Not every home seller is going to connect to the letter, but there is always that chance that they could! There have been sellers in the past who went with a lower offer because of a letter.
You might be wondering what you should write to the homeowner. Don’t worry, we’ll help you out there! Local and experienced Realtors in Lake Arrowhead can assist buyers in what would be more specifi ...
