150 homes sold in Carlsbad in May (92008, 92009, 92010 and 92011), compared to 152 in April.  Here’s what happened:

 

Detached Homes Sold

93 (down 5%); 27 Days on Market, Average Sale price $1,101,505 (down 1%), Average sales price 97% of original asking price,

 

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

57 (up 6%); 26 DOM, Average Sales price $601,994 (up 2%), Average sale price 98% of original asking price

 

Carlsbad home sales in May dropped slightly overall from April, with a decline in detached home sales but with more sales of attached homes. Average sales prices decreased slightly for detached homes but went up slightly for attached homes.

 

Compared to May 2018, detached home sales were up by 7%, but down 5% for attached homes. Average prices year over year also shifted, and were down by 1% for detached homes, and by 5% for attached homes.

 

19% of the transactions were cash buyers (versus 25% last month)

 

Average time on market (DOM) dropped for both detached and attached homes and is less than 1 month.

 

Carlsbad buyers, on average, were able to buy their homes for 2 - 3% off the original asking price; but at the same time 29% of the home buyers in Carlsbad paid asking price or better for their homes a likely indication of competition and multiple offers.

 

Bressi Ranch homes in Carlsbad

 

The median sales price for detached homes was $1,015,000 (down 2%) and $540,000 for attached, down 6% from April.

 

There were 10 homes in Carlsbad at the end of May 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. All 10 appear to be in a “first right of refusal” stage due to contingent offers being accepted.c

 

There were 348 Carlsbad homes for sale (211 detached, 137 attached) at the end of May, a slight decrease by 1% from last month, the second decline in inventory. This is still substantially more inventory than one year ago which is good news for buyers.

 

Current inventory is about 2.5 months for attached homes (down from 2.7 months last month) and 2.4 months for detached (down from 2.6 months last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. Carlsbad remains a strong sellers’ market based on current inventory and buyer demand – buyers can expect competition and multiple offers on many properties, despite the increased inventory given the strong demand.

 

La Costa Greens home

 

In May 243 new listings came on the market, 3% more than last month. Similarly the number of homes going pending in May (excluding homes that closed), 156, was 11% more than in April.
