4-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad - May 2019 Market Update

Carlsbad 4-Bedroom Homes for Sale

May 2019 Update

 

4-bedroom Carlsbad homeIt’s not unusual that Carlsbad home buyers want more space than a 3-bedroom single family detached home can offer. Perhaps that’s you?

 

The reasons, of course will vary – a need for multigenerational living, or to accommodate an expanding household. A family member may need a home office, or additional guest living space might be desired.

 

While the supply of single family detached homes continues to be limited in Carlsbad compared to demand, we have seen a pretty decent increase in single family home listings since the beginning of 2019 (about 48% since the end of December); take a look at the most recent market report for Carlsbad at April 2019 Carlsbad Real Estate Market Report for updates on what’s been happening in our market.

 

Despite the inventory increases we only have 2.2 months of inventory of single family detached homes with 4-bedrooms, a market favoring sellers. 4-bedroom homes make up 38% of the total inventory of detached single family homes currently listed for sale in Carlsbad.

 

CURRENT 4-BEDROOM LISTINGS IN CARLSBAD:

83 detached single family homes

$750,000 to $6,450,000

Living space ranges from 1227 SF to 10,000 SF

Average Time on Market – 44 days

Average List Price - $1,458,950

 

Of the 83 homes for sale 31 (37%) are priced below $1M, offering a range of options for Carlsbad home buyers. Here’s the breakdown on pricing:

 

$750,000                              1

$750,001 - $1,000,000         30

$1,000,001 - $1,500,000      40

$1,500,001 - $2,500,000      10

$2,501,000+                          2

 

Those Carlsbad home buyers who are interested in single story living have fewer choices, with 12 (14% of the inventory) single story homes with 4 bedrooms currently available.

 

The available 4-bedroom homes vary in age. Of the current listings homes range from 1952 to new; if you want a NEW 4-bedroom home there are only 5 homes listed in the MLS; some may be under construction, and not all new homes are necessarily listed in the MLS.

 

If you are interested in brand new homes please give me a call at (760) 840-1360. I will check and find out the full inventory (existing or planned) for you (you might also want to read the 6 Things Buyers Should Know About Buying New Homes in Carlsbad).
