Buyers in the Carlsbad real estate market seeking new homes might consider CopperWood in La Costa Oaks in Carlsbad CA, if they are looking for larger homes (and higher price) than those at Rockledge across the street. But these new construction homes in La Costa are going fast, too...surprisingly so.
La Costa Oaks is a master planned community built between 2003 and 2006 and until recently only offered resale homes. That has now changed with the new developments at Rockledge and CopperWood.
CopperWood (total of 53 homes) and Rockledge are the two new La Costa Oaks communities offering new homes that are pretty well priced relative to resale homes currently active in the Carlsbad real estate market. The new homes at CopperWood are priced in the mid $700,00s to low $800,000s currently which is a good value in the Carlsbad real estate market for homes this size.
Phase 1 is already sold out and all homes (most with canyon and/or distance ocean views) have now closed escrow.

CopperWood New homes at La Costa Oaks - Phase 3:
There are 2 homes left in this phase with a March/April 2010 move-in date planned: Plan 1, priced at $817,990 with 3260 SF and a 9000SF+ lot, and a Plan 3, priced at $821,990 with 3688 SF on a lot of almost 8000 SF; these homes are not view homes. Estimated property taxes are 1.3% (which includes Mello Roos fees) with HOA fees of approximately $242 (to be verified) which will decrease to about 223/monthly once the community (including Rockledge) is completed. Residents will have use of the private club, The Oaks Club (a 5500 SF facility in the existing community), offering a large pool, spa, kitchen, meeting rooms and more. A new pool facility is being built within walking distance of CopperWood and is expected to be completed in 2009.
Buyers who use CopperWood's preferred lenders will receive up to $10,000 toward their closing costs (call me for more information). That could be an incentive.
Shopping and dining are nearby, the beaches are about 6 miles west, and the new La Costa Town Square is slated to be built down the street less than a mile away.
CopperWood provides a terrific, but clearly increasingly limited, opportunity for buyers seeking new homes of over 3000 SF and 4 or more bedrooms in the Carlsbad real estate market. Don't miss out on this opportunity - give me a call with any questions and to arrange a tour.
