Good morning Jeff - thank you for the house market info for Carlsbad.  You are right in engaging people to set up a strategy for home buying in your tight  market.

Thought of you. My son and his family are in Carlsbad right now. He loves to surf and sent me some video yesterday. It looks like perfect weather. I'm sure people would love to move to Carlsbad and enjoy the lifestyle year round. Naturally, they need to call you for the best RE representation. D

And thank you for stopping by Susie Kay  Hope all is well in Texas!

Hi Grant Schneider  - Buyers really DO need to have a strategy, and contingency plans since things do not always go the way they hope for, or as quickly. At other times they do.

How ironic! Yes, the weather has been beautiful, although chilly at night...but then it's winter. I can't complain about 60 - 65 degree days at this time of year.

Hi Jeff Dowler - Certainly buyers need to act if they are thinking of buying a 3 bedroom home in Carlsbad CA.  With low inventory, the longer you wait prices will continue to rise. Clients need your help to make the right decisions.
