138 homes sold in Carlsbad in August (92008, 92009, 92010 and 92011), a decrease by 12% from July.  Here’s what happened:

 

Detached Homes Sold

84 (down 14%); 27 Days on Market, Average Sale price was $1,067,789 (up 1%), Average sales price was 98% of original asking price

 

Attached Homes (condos, town homes, twin homes) Sold

54 (down 7%); 36 DOM, Average Sales price was $671,082 (up 12%), Average sales price was 97% of original asking price

 

Carlsbad home sales in August dropped from July for both detached and attached homes, not really a surprise given the summer. The average sales price rose just slightly for detached homes but was significantly higher on average for attached homes.

 

Compared to August 2018, detached home sales were down by 21%, and were down 5% for attached home sales. Average prices year over year also shifted, and were down by 9% for detached homes, but were higher by 10% on average for attached homes for the same period.

 

24% of the transactions were cash buyers (versus 10% last month).

 

Average time on market (DOM) rose slightly for detached homes but did not shift for attached homes (e.g., condos, town homes) than last month.

 

Carlsbad buyers, on average, were able to negotiate the purchase of their homes for 2 - 3% off the original asking price; but at the same time 34% of the home buyers paid asking price or better for their homes, no doubt an indication of the competition in the market.

 

The median sales price for detached homes was $1,020,000 (up 6%) and $603,495 for attached, up 8% from July.

 

Carlsbad homes

 

There were 10 homes in Carlsbad at the end of August with a CONTINGENT status, the same as last month (i.e., some of these are homes with offers being reviewed for approval by short sale and REO lenders). Contingent homes are technically still available but some listings may not allow more showings or accept back-up offers. 9 appear to be in a “first right of refusal” stage with 1 a short sale.

 

There were 362 Carlsbad homes for sale at the end of August, ranging in price from $325,000 to $26,950,000, 3% more than last month.

 

Current inventory is about 2.6 months for attached homes (up from 2.5 months last month) and 2.2 months for detached (up from 2.1 months last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. Carlsbad remains a very strong sellers’ market based on current inventory and buyer demand.

 

In August 211 new listings came on the market, 5% fewer than last month, but that's still 7 new listings per day! 114 homes went pending in August (excluding homes that closed), 11% fewer than in July.
