3-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad - August 2019 Update

3-Bedroom Single Family Homes for Sale in Carlsbad

August 24, 2019 Update

 

Carlsbad home buyers are often interested in buying a 3-bedroom detached single family home when seeking a new place to live.

 

3 bedroom Carlsbad home

 

For some Carlsbad buyers it’s their first home, while others are down-sizing from a larger house. A 3-bedroom might specifically meet desired lifestyle and budget needs. And other buyers are looking for a Carlsbad beach home, near or on the ocean, and are willing to settle for a 3-bedroom home to be on or close to the beach, plus those choices may be limited.

The inventory of single family detached homes has increased in Carlsbad since the end of December by 44%, however the housing market remains one that favors sellers due to the supply of homes and buyer demand (read the Carlsbad Real Estate Market Report for July 2019 for more details on the current Carlsbad housing market).

 

At this time, based on the rate of sales so far this year and our inventory and demand, we have about 2.5 months of single family detached homes with 3-bedrooms available.

 

3-bedroom homes make up about 28% of the current inventory of detached single family homes for sale in Carlsbad.

Current 3-bedoom listings range in age from 1924 to newly-built or under construction; several 3-bedroom homes in The Preserve have options for 4 bedrooms. Buyers can expect additional releases of new homes, too although dates have not been announced – let me know if you are interested so we can stay in touch.

 

New construction homes may not be immediately available for move in. And not all new construction is listed in our MLS.

 

If buying a new home is of interest to you, give me a call at (760) 840-1360 and we can explore the current options for you in your price range (Read 6 Things Buyers Should Know About Buying New Homes in Carlslad).
