4-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad
Market Update as of August 29, 2020
Some Carlsbad home buyers desire more space than a 3-bedroom single family detached home can provide, for a variety of reasons: a growing household, an interest or need for multigenerational living, at-home office, or room for guests.
The inventory of single family detached homes remains limited in Carlsbad compared to demand. Although the supply had increased earlier in the year, in the last couple of months inventory has declined but demand has not; take a look at the most recent market report for Carlsbad at What’s My Carlsbad Home Worth - Carlsbad Home Sales for July 2020 for an overview of the Carlsbad housing market conditions including sales, inventory and prices.
At this time we only have 2 weeks, not months, of inventory of 4-bedroom single family detached homes, based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months, a very strong sellers’ market. 4-bedroom homes currently make up less than half (36%) of the total inventory of detached single family homes for sale in Carlsbad.
