The overall number of Carlsbad home sales in November decreased modestly from October, with a big drop in detached single family home sales but an increase in attached. Average sales prices declined for detached and attached homes compared to last month. Compared to November 2016, detached home sales were up by 19%, and up 24% for attached homes. Average prices year over year rose by 9% for detached homes, and increased by 1% for attached homes from November 2016.

 

20% of the transactions were cash buyers (versus 19% last month)

 

Average time on market (DOM) rose for attached homes but was the same for detached homes as last month, and remains at 1 month or less.

 

Buyers, on average, are getting their homes for 2 - 4% off the asking price; however, 30% of the homes sold at and above the list price

 

The median sales price for detached homes was $914,444 (down 7% from last month), and $525,500 for attached (down 4%)

 

There were 6 properties (3% of the total) in Carlsbad at the end of November with the CONTINGENT status, the same as last month (i.e., for the most part these are homes with offers being reviewed for approval by short sale and REO lenders). These homes are technically still available but some listings may not allow more showings or be accepting more offers.

 

There were 203 Carlsbad homes for sale at the end of November, a decrease by 11% from last month, another decline although not a surprise given the holiday season. This represents an inventory of 1.2 months for attached homes (down from 1.4 months last month) and 1.3 months for detached (the same as last month) based on the current rate of sales over the last 6 months. The real estate market in Carlsbad continues to be very competitive for buyers, and remains a very strong sellers’ market.

 

In November 102 new listings came on the market, which is 34% fewer than in October. The number of homes going pending in November (excluding those homes that closed), 110, decreased by 17% from last month.
