Why do People Live in Tanglewood?

Tanglewood appeals to people for a number of reasons. Certainly affordability is one of them, given the overall prices in Carlsbad. Some of the better pricing for condos will be found here, relative to some other areas, and the size means there are often several options available, despite Carlsbad’s overall limited inventory. Be aware that homes sell quickly – more on the housing market and prices below.

 

The community is ideally located near abundant shopping and dining, and major commuting routes (the 5 and 78 freeways). Because of pricing Tanglewood works well for first time home buyers, but also appeals to investors due to being a popular rental community.
