Calavera Hills homes


The 92010 area of Carlsbad offers a variety of attached (condos, townhomes, twin homes) and detached single family homes for buyers to choose from in a wide range of prices, sizes and styles.


While Robertson Ranch is sold out we are seeing resales of recently completed homes that sold orignally in 2017, for example.


The Preserve has newly-built or to-be-built single family homes starting in the high $700s, so Carlsbad home buyers in the 92010 are can consider resales as well as new construction (read 6 things buyers must know about buying new construction).

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson 

New builds are a relatively small percentage of our overall inventory, but for the most part it sells pretty quickly, especially at the lower price points.

Have a great weekend!

Good morning Jeff - good that you have varied price points.  Buyers interested in new construction should stay in contact with you.

Hi Grant Schneider 

Thanks for stopping by. The inventory in the 92010 area (where I live) DOES provide a number of options in terms of styles, prices and age.

Enjoy your weekend!
