101 Things to do In and Around Carlsbad

 

In August 2017 there were 154 Carlsbad homes sold (92008, 92009, 92010 and 92011), down by 4 (3%) from June.  Here’s what happened:

 

TOTAL HOMES SOLD

154 (down 3%), 23 DOM; Ave. Sale price $854,732 (down 2%), Ave. sale price 98% of asking price

 

Detached Homes Sold

93 (up 1%), 25 DOM; Ave. Sale price $1,061,319 (down 1%), Ave. sale price 98% of asking price

 

Attached Homes Sold

61 (down 8%); 20 DOM, Ave. Sale price $541,297 (down 10%), Ave. sale price 98% of asking price

 

The overall number of Carlsbad home sales in August decreased from July levels, but with a slight increase in detached single family home sales but a modest decrease for attached home sales. Average sales prices dropped slightly for detached homes but declined modestly for attached compared to last month. Compared to August 2016, however, both detached and attached home sales were down, by 9% for detached, and by 18% for attached. Average prices year over year rose by 12% for detached homes, but declined by 15% for attached homes from August 2016.

 

Carlsbad homes

 

20% of the transactions were cash buyers (compared to 21% last month)

 

Average time on market (DOM) dropped slightly for detached and attached homes compared to last month and remains less than 1 month.

 

Buyers, on average, are getting their homes for 2% off the asking price; however, 44% of the homes sold at and above the list price

 

The median sales price for detached homes was $995,000 (up 1% from last month), and $520,563 for attached (down 8%)

 

There were 8 properties (4% of the total) in Carlsbad at the end of August with the CONTINGENT status, compared to 5 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 304 Carlsbad homes for sale at the end of August, an increase by 11% from last month which had declined, but 7% less inventory than at the end of August 2016. This represents an inventory of 1.4 months for attached homes (up from 1.3 months last month) and 1.9 months for detached (up from 1.8 months 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 August 191 new listings came on the market, 5% fewer than in July. The number of homes going pending in August (excluding those homes that closed), 158, however, increased by 3% from last month following an increase in June.

 

This overview of the Carlsbad real estate market is based on information provided by the MLS. More details can be provided with regard to current activity as well as within the specific zip codes, and neighborhoods, of Carlsbad.
