Dance, Sing, Eat and Be Merry.

You can’t help but participate in the fun at Oktoberfest.
Put on your dancing shoes, because you’ll definitely want to do the Chicken Dance or Circle Dance. Grab one of our Gaudi’s (Hostesses/Hosts) and learn to polka.

Enter one of our free contests. Saw a log, hold stein, or slam an O’Doul’s

After a few rounds of polkas, Macarana’s, Chicken dances, etc., get outside and take a big breath of fresh mountain air. Take a stroll down the Budenstrasse (Avenue of the Booths). The outside vendor and game area features everything from antique slot machines for purchase, to handmade jewelry and candies. Have your palm read or simply enjoy an Italian Ice.

Little Oktoberfest fans will enjoy the Kinder Garten complete with bounce houses, petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, airbrush tattoos and carnival games.

Getting Hungry

We serve up a German feast fit for a king. All the favorites from Brats, to Sauerbraten, to pretzels, to pickled pig feets.

And, if you’re looking for something more than German food, we offer that too. Cafe Americana serves grilled 1/2 pd. burgers, monster nachos, chicken tacos, chicken strips, chili, fries, onion rings and a variety of other festival-type fare!

TICKETS,TICKETS, WHO HAS THE TICKETS?

All German food and alcoholic beverages are purchased with tickets. There are four convenient ticket booth locations within the building to purchase tickets. Ticket types include: Dinner, Sandwich, Beer, Wine and Burgermeister Bucks. Burgermeister Bucks can be used for both food and alcohol and can be purchased individually or in books of $60.00. Save time and enjoy Oktoberfest as you walk through the doors, by pre-purchasing Burgermeister Books or Ten-pack Beer booklets on line.

Getting Thirsty

The Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest proudly pours both German and American bier & wine, as well as a variety of soft drinks, water, coffee and sports drinks.

There are two main inside bars and two outside bier gardens – the Warsteiner Bier Garten and the Sports Garten. Looking for the best deal on beer?
Nothing better than having a great time and saving a little too! Buy a stein. The beer cup sizes are 14 oz. and 32 oz. Our steins sizes start at 16.9 oz. and increase to
33.1 oz. You do the math. We also offer mini kegs, which are 5 liter cans. Mini kegs are $48.00 and pour 11+ 14 oz. cups. And finally, we offer Beer Booklets which consist of 10 beer tickets for $58.00 (a $2.00 savings).

Treasure a Memory

Be sure to stop by the Oktoberfest Shoppe and pick-up an Oktoberfest souvenir. We offer everything from Sweatshirts, to T-shirts, to hair wreaths, to magnets, to steins and much more.

Auf Wiedersehen

After a full day of Oktoberfest fun, leave the driving to us. Catch a ride on the O’Doul’s complimentary shuttle. The shuttles begin running at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday evenings and will take you door-to-door anywhere in the Big Bear Valley. The shuttles continue to operate until the last Oktoberfest fan is out of the building! Please note: The shuttle will NOT take you to any other establishment that sells alcoholic beverages.

Freddie Mac / Fannie Mae – New Mandated Law – November 1, 2012

 

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are adopting new guidelines to streamline the process for short sales, which most real estate observers expect will outpace foreclosures in the coming year.

The guidelines, required by the Federal Housing Finance Agency and effective June 15, would require servicers of mortgages backed by Freddie and Fannie to review and respond to requests for short sales within 30 calendar days of receipt of a buyer’s offer.

A short sale is a transaction in which a lender agrees to accept less than the amount owed on the mortgage. It is a “strategic default,” designed to get a borrower out of financial trouble without having to go through the drawn-out legal tangle of the foreclosure process.

A short sale does affect the seller’s credit score, reducing it as much as a foreclosure would, according to Fair Isaac Corp., which developed the system.

On average, according to recent data from foreclosure search engine RealtyTrac, short sales are taking 306 days from start to finish, compared with 113 days in 2006 as the housing market started to unravel.

Area real estate agents who handle such transactions have acknowledged that they do take a long time to complete, and that delays often result in loss of the sale.

But lenders are becoming more accommodating, though they have issues with short sales because they have been abused by unscrupulous investors and others, perhaps to the tune of $375 million in annual losses nationwide.

In January, there were more than 35,000 short sales nationwide, on pace for more than 105,000 pre-foreclosure sales for the first quarter. That would be the highest quarterly total since the first three months of 2009.

This is not the first time the government has acted to accelerate the short-sale process. In late 2009, the Treasury Department proposed financial incentives and simplified the procedures for completing them. That included a $1,000 payment to servicers and a maximum of $1,000 to go to investors who signed off on payments to subordinate lien holders, the Treasury said. Borrowers were to receive $1,500 in relocation expenses.

The rules, which took effect in April 2010, were supposed to reduce the short-sale process to 10 days, but didn’t.

The pending Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac guidelines will mandate weekly status updates to the borrower if the short sale remains under review after 30 calendar days.

Servicers also will be required to make and then inform borrowers of final decisions within 60 calendar days of receipt of an offer.

By the end of the year, Fannie and Freddie will announce other “enhancements” to the short-sale process, including borrower-eligibility evaluation, simplified documents, and payments to subordinate lien holders.

Housing Finance Agency acting director Edward J. DeMarco said the changes were being considered “additional tools to prevent foreclosure, keep homes occupied, and help maintain stable communities.”

Neighborhood Meet and Greet

Photobucket

Once we help our clients get into the home of their dreams Mom and I throw a fab party for them. This allows them to meet and mingle with their neighbors. It’s a great way to welcome them into the neighborhood and show off their new home. This particular party was great because our clients Raymond and Nora moved into a very friendly community. We enjoyed working with Ray and Nora and look forward to a long lasting friendship for years and years to come.

P.S Neighbor Steve – We better be invited to the Christmas party :)
