2017 was a busy year for homes sales in the 92008 area, with some notable shifts from the same period back in 2016.
The 92008 area includes Carlsbad Village, Telescope Point, Olde Carlsbad and the historic Barrio near the Village, beachfront areas from the Village south along Carlsbad Boulevard to the oceanfront neighborhood of Terramar, the lagoon-front neighborhood of Bay Cove, several condo communities close to the Agua Hedionda Lagoon, and other neighborhoods, with a mix of attached (condos, town homes, twin homes) and detached single family homes west of El Camino Real.
In this report we will focus on single family detached home sales.
