The 92008 area includes Carlsbad Village, Telescope Point, Olde Carlsbad and the historic Barrio near the Village, 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 west of El Camino Real.

 

In this report we will focus on single family detached home sales.

 

SINGLE FAMILY DETACHED HOME SALES

202 single family detached homes sold in the Carlsbad 92008 area in 2017, 10% more than in 2016.

 

The average sales price was $1,093,768, an increase of 13% from 2016. Prices ranged from $380,000 to $5,180,333; the median sales price was $899,900, which was up 4% compared to 2016.

 

Single family detached homes sold just slightly more quickly than in 2016, with an average time on the market of 40 days, versus 41 days in 2016. However, 60 of these sales were pending within 1 week or less of being listed, so listings moved off market quickly.

 

Homes sold for 95% of asking price on average, but with 33% of the properties selling at list price or above. 21% of the home sales were cash transactions versus 22% in 2016.

As of this writing there are 29 single family detached homes for sale in 92008, ranging in price from $919,000 to $14,950,000 for an ocean-front custom home in the Village on Ocean Avenue. The average list price is $2,238,409; the high average is due, in part, to 2 oceanfront listings at $14,950,000 and $5,500,000 - $5,900,876. 13 homes have hit the market since the beginning of the year, with 4 others that were listed and are now pending.
