4-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad December 2018 Update

4-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad

December 20, 2018 Update

 

4 Bedroom Carlsbad homeAs a Carlsbad home buyer are you interested in more space than a 3-bedroom single family detached home provides?

 

Many buyers are! For some Carlsbad buyers extra space might be needed for multigenerational living, or for accommodating a growing household. Maybe a family member needs a home office, or additional guest living space may be desirable.

 

While the supply of single family detached homes continues to be limited in Carlsbad compared to demand, we have seen a pretty decent increase in listings since the beginning of the year especially in the spring (here’s the November 2018 Carlsbad Real Estate Market Report with more details about the things you should know).

 

However, with the inventory decreases during the holiday season we have only 2.1 months of inventory of single family detached homes with 4-bedrooms, based on the current rate of sales over the last 3 months. 4-bedroom homes currently make up 42% of the total inventory of detached single family homes listed for sale in Carlsbad.

 

Current Carlsbad 4-Bedroom Listings:

76 detached single family homes

$579,000 to $53,825,000

Living space ranges from 1591 SF to 6561 SF

Average Time on Market – 70 days

Average List Price - $1,225,872

 

Of the 76 homes for sale 29 (38%) are priced below $1M, offering a range of options for Carlsbad home buyers. Here’s the breakdown on pricing of the current listings:

 

$750,000 and below             5

$750,001 - $1,000,000         24

$1,000,001 - $1,500,000      36

$1,500,001 - $2,500,000      9

$2,501,000 - $5,000,000      2

 

Carlsbad buyers interested in a single story home have fewer choices, with only 8 single story homes with 4-bedrooms currently available.

 

Carlsbad 4-bedroom homes vary in terms of age. Of the current listings homes range from 1948 to new; there are 9 homes built in 2016, 2017 and 2018 for sale with some under constructions, including a model home in Robertson Ranch, and several homes in small new home enclaves.
