3-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad - December 2018 Update

3-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad

December 2018 Update

 

3-bedroom homes are often popular with Carlsbad home buyers for several reasons. It might be a first home, while some buyers may be downsizing from a larger property.  Or a 3-bedroom might specifically meet lifestyle and budget needs. And then there are those buyers looking for a Carlsbad beach home, near or on the ocean (read about the essential things you should consider when buying a second home)!

 

Carlsbad 3-bedroom homeThe supply of single family detached homes has been increasing in Carlsbad since the beginning of the year, although we have seen a decline around the holidays which is not unusual; current inventory versus demand still means this is a seller’s market (read the Carlsbad Real Estate Market Report for November 2018 for more details on the Carlsbad housing market).

 

Indeed, at this time based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months we have about 3.1 months of inventory of single family detached homes with 3-bedrooms, a market that favors sellers. It's an improvement, however, over the 1.7 months of inventory earlier this year.

 

Currently 3-bedroom homes are about 29% of the total inventory of detached single family homes for sale in Carlsbad.

 

Current Carlsbad 3-Bedroom Home Listings:

50 single family detached homes are available

$668,000 to $1,750,000 (a development or large estate opportunity)

Living space ranges from 1088 SF to 4238 SF

 

Of the 50 homes for sale well over half (36) are priced under $1M, offering a range of budget options for Carlsbad buyers. Here’s the breakdown on pricing:

 

Under $750,000                              3

$750,001 - $1,000,000                   33

$1,000,001 - $1,500,000      13

$1,500,001 - $2,000,000      1

$2,000,001 - $3,000,000      1

Over $3,000,000                             1

 

Buyers who prefer to have a single story Carlsbad home with 3 bedrooms have 18 homes to choose from among the current inventory.

 

Some buyers prefer new homes while others are open to resales. Of the current 3-bedoom listings homes range in age from 1931 to newly-built or under construction; 3 homes are available per the MLS in The Preserve new home community priced from $770,990 to $857,990. There are 2 other new homes available in the MLS in Carlsbad. These new homes may not be immediately available for move in.
