The Big Bear MLS (Big Bear Multiple Listing Service) is a database of homes for sale in The Big Bear Valley in Southern California. It contains information, statistics, and picture of homes for sale in Big Bear as well as all other types of property for sale in Big Bear such as vacant lots, commercial real estate, condos, businesses etc. The Big Bear MLS is the primary tool that professional real estate agents use to market and advertise listings to other agents.
There are three ways that you can gain access to the information in the Big Bear MLS. I will go through them in order of most effective to least effective.
The single best way to Access the Big Bear MLS is to use the most powerful Big Bear Real Estate Search Engine created to date at SearchBigBearRealEstate.com . There is no sign in required and you can search anonymously. This Site has not only all the available properties in the Big Bear MLS but it also contains properties listed in Big Bear that are not in the Big Bear MLS but reside in other MLS systems all across Southern California. You will see properties here that many Big Bear Real Estate Agents aren’t aware of. SearchBigBearRealEstate.com has a Map Based Big Bear MLS Search as well as a criteria based Big Bear MLS search. Properties are searchable by City, Area or even specific neighborhood. You can see all the available pictures and virtual tours for each home as well as all the pertinent statistics. Some of the most common types of Big Bear Homes that Big Bear Home Buyers are looking for are already set up as Big Bear Home Galleries searchable with a single mouse click. For instance if you want to see all the Big Bear Lakefront Homes for Sale just click the Big Bear Lakefront Home Gallery and all the Big Bear Lakefront homes for Sale at that time will be displayed as a picture gallery. Likewise if you are interested in buying a Big Bear Log Cabin just click the Big Bear Log Cabin Gallery. If Big Bear Equestrian Properties are your thing, just click the gallery of Big Bear Equestrian Properties. There are also galleries for Big Bear Foreclosures and Big Bear Short Sales.
The second best way to access the Big Bear MLS is to find a Big Bear Real Estate Agent who is willing to listen to what you are looking for, establish a search based on your criteria, and then set you up on AUTONOTIFICATION. AUTONOTIFICATION is a means of sending you listings (homes or properties for sale) that meet your criteria via email. Using this method the agent can send you all the complete details for each property, including multiple pictures, statistics, agent descriptions, and virtual tours. The search is specifically tailored to your exact criteria. You don’t have to sort through pages and pages of properties that you are not interested in to find the couple of gems hidden in the massive overwhelming amounts of data stored in the Big Bear MLS system. Best of all, AUTONOTIFICATION is instantaneous! Your agent can set it up so that you receive an email the second a property is posted to the Big Bear Lake MLS system with all the complete details and pictures and virtual tours for that property. You will see new properties hit the market the same time as all the agents in the valley! The best Big Bear properties sell quickly regardless of what the market is doing. For proof, just ask your agent to send you the current pending properties. You will see some jewels that went under contract within days of hitting the MLS. If you want me to set you up on AUTONOTIFICATION just give me a call at (909) 547-4402 for a short free phone consultation where I will ask you a series of questions to help you pin down exactly what you are looking for.

Number of Stories
The Most common (yet least effective) way to search the Big Bear MLS system to see homes and properties for sale in Big Bear Lake California is to go to Realtor.com which is by far the single most visited Real Estate Website in the WORLD. Realtor.com shows all the listings that are in the Big Bear Valley MLS system but it suffers some limitations in terms of search criteria. One of the biggest limitations of Realtor.com is that you can not search by neighborhood, which is one of the most valuable search criteria, since many home buyers start searching for a home by first identifying choice neighborhoods. Realtor.com also has very limited data available on the homes and property for sale compared to the Big Bear MLS . For instance, unless the listing agent pays Realtor.com a yearly fee, which few agents choose to do, only one picture of each property is available for viewing there. The Realtor.com property descriptions do not include valuable comments about the property that are entered into the Big Bear MLS , and it also doesn’t include a virtual tour of each home unless the listing agent pays an additional fee.
In conclusion, if you want to search the Big Bear MLS anonymously go to http://SearchBigBearRealEstate.com. If you want to talk to an agent and have email AUTONOTIFICATION tailored to your specific needs call me at (909) 547-4402.
