Some quick facts.

  1. Active residential listings are now at 889, the lowest level in over 3 years.
  2. 58 of the 889 listed homes are foreclosure listings, or only 6.52% (Very Low Number).
  3. 50 closed residential sales in the Big Bear MLS for the month of February, compared to 34 in 2008. (47% increase)
  4. 25 of these 50 (50%) were foreclosures and 4 were short sales. (8%) of sales.
  5. In February 2008, 9 of the 34 residential sales were foreclosures (26%) and none of them were short sales.

I see a trend. 2 months of unit sales increases, and inventory is going down not up…..

What do you think this is signaling?
