Carlsbad Real Estate News and Views: May 2007

Here's the REAL scoop on living in Carlsbad ~ beaches, things to do, places to eat, community events, and of course neighborhoods, homes and the Carlsbad real estate market in general, including surrounding communities like Encinitas, Cardiff, San Marcos, Oceanside, Solana Beach and Del Mar.

Carlsbad Real Estate - Brookfield: A Residential Neighborhood near San Marcos

Brookfield in La CostaBrookfield is an attractive, un-gated neighborhood on the eastern side of Carlsbad where Alga Road meets Melrose, near the edge of San Marcos (look for Xana Way at the light on Alga, the main road through Brookfield).

 

Buyers who are looking at Carlsbad homes for sale, especially first time buyers, are often drawn to the community because of the location and the pricing. With the median price of a detached home in Carlsbad's La Costa area (92009) at $829,000 for April 2007, Brookfield becomes a viable area for new buyers to purchase.

 

Brookfield is a quiet residential neighborhood, with several small "villages," and there are several community pools andsmall parks for residents. Homes were built in the mid to late 1980s and most are two story. Homeowners pay a nominal HOA fee (around $70 - $72) but there are no Mello Roos fees.

 

In general pricing on homes for sale in Brookfield ranges from the mid $500s up to the mid/high $600s. Prospective buyers should be aware that there are some homes in Brookfield along Melrose and near Alga (both are fairly busy thoroughfares) so there is some noise...worth checking on if this is a potential issue for you.

 

  

 

Because of location, Brookfield residents can take advantage of the amenities in San Marcos as well as Carlsbad, including shopping (some new shops along Rancho Santa Fe Road just a couple of miles away) and restaurants.

 

El Camino Real, in Carlsbad, offers a wealth of shopping and is perhaps 3 miles away to the west. Carlsbad beaches are a 15-20 minute drive.

 

Students in Brookfield attend the San Marcos Unified School District Schools.

Whether you are a first time or perhaps looking to downsize, Brookfield in Carlsbad may be the right place for you.
