Carlsbad Single Family Homes with Views for Sale March 2017

Carlsbad Single Family Homes with Views for Sale

 

It’s not usual for Carlsbad buyers to have some sort of view on their wish list for their new home. And for some buyers, it’s a  “must have.”

 

Given we are located on the coast, many Carlsbad buyers hope for an ocean view. Others may be less particular but want some sort of view as opposed to looking into their neighbor’s back yard and at their house.

 

Carlsbad views

 

The terrain in  Carlsbad is hilly in many areas, so this affords buyers the potential for all sorts of different views, such as hills, ocean, city lights, and canyons.  As with many homes there may be a trade off - a great view with a less than desirable house, or a wonderful home but no view, or an undesirable one, like a major road.

 

The type of view, and how desirable it is to you, of course, is very personal, as is willingness to pay an additional cost to find the right view, and deal with the limited inventory.

 

If you are hoping for a view home in Carlsbad, there may be a number of options, depending on inventory. Greenbelt, open space, mountains/hills, ocean, lagoon, golf course, sunset, panoramic, and “city” lights are some of the types of views Carlsbad homes offer that appeal to home buyers.

 

Views in La Costa Carlsbad

 

It’s pretty common knowledge that some views, especially ocean, come at a price compared to a comparable home without a view. And then there may be trade-offs – a great ocean view but you look at and hear the freeway, or the view is through power lines and high tension wire towers. And that panoramic view may also include a mall or industrial area between you and the mountains.

 

On the other side of things certain views are felt to be negative - the freeway or major roads (particularly due to the noise), high-tension wires and towers, and industrial/retail areas. And typically those issues will be reflected in pricing, and are more difficult to sell.

 

While views may be noted in the MLS the only way to be sure a view is what you want, along with other features of the house, is to tour the property in person.

 

Currently there are 76 homes for sale in Carlsbad’s 4 zip codes that have views of varying types. These homes range in price from $605,000 (the next more expensive view home is priced at $799,000) to $11,495,000 for a home on the ocean with panoramic views. Homes vary by size, number of bedrooms, age, style, and amenities so there are a number of options for you depending on your budget.
