Year-End 2019 Market Report for the Carlsbad 92008 Area
Detached Single Family Homes
Like 2018, 2019 was a busy year for home sales in the Carlsbad 92008 area, with some shifts from the prior year.
The 92008 area includes Carlsbad Village, Telescope Point, Olde Carlsbad and the historic Barrio, beachfront areas from the Village south along Carlsbad Boulevard to the oceanfront neighborhood of Terramar, the lagoon-front neighborhood of Bay Cove, several condo communities close to the Agua Hedionda Lagoon, and other neighborhoods, with a mix of attached (condos, town homes, twin homes) and detached single family homes. The most expensive properties are found in this area of Carlsbad due to the ocean.

This market report focuses on single family detached home sales.
SINGLE FAMILY DETACHED HOME SALES IN 2019
194 single family detached homes sold in the Carlsbad 92008 area, the same as in 2018.
The average sales price was $1,110,684, a decrease of 12% from the 2018 average sales price (but no doubt the sale of 4 homes over $5M, with 1 at $11,500,000, raised the average for 2018 substantially). Prices for homes sold in 2019 ranged from $882,000 to $7,148,750 (an oceanfront property in Terramar); the median sales price was $999,500, an increase of 4% over 2018.
Single family detached homes sold slightly more quickly than in 2018, with an average time on the market of 38 days, versus 42 days in 2018. Fifty-six (29%) of these homes went pending within 1 week of being listed so many buyers were making quick decisions.
Homes sold for 96% of original asking price on average, however it’s worth noting that 31% of the home buyers paid full price or better for their new homes, no doubt a sign of competitive bidding in many cases. 19% of the home sales were cash transactions, slightly fewer than in 2018.
17 of the sales in 2019 were new construction. 50% of the total sales were over $1 million.
CURRENT MARKET AS OF JANUARY 26, 2020

These homes range in price from $745,000 to $26,950,000 for an ocean-front estate on Terramar Beach south of the Village.
The average list price is $2,516,540; the high average is partly due to the 2 high end listings, one at $4,890,000 and one at $26,950,000.
