What an apt name for this charming seaside town located about 35 miles north of San Diego in Southern California. But a sleepy coastal village Carlsbad is not - there is lots going on in this growing community of 95,000.

MY CARLSBAD TOUR will wet your appetite for more to come.
The housing market in Carlsbad is pretty robust, although like elsewhere in San Diego's North County, the community has experienced a slowing of appreciation, an increase in inventory from a year ago, and an overall shift from fast-moving seller's market to a more buyer-friendly one. Good news for buyers! Despite these changes, Carlsbad home prices, while less than other coastal communities to the south (e.g., Encinitas, Cardiff, Solana Beach), remain high, and, at $771,250 for detached homes and $464,750 for attached (as of December 31, 2006), are well above the North County medians of $625,000 and $380,000 respectively. For more details, read about the overall health of the North County area housing market.
Carlsbad real estate covers a broad spectrum of styles, sizes and age, in a number of neighborhoods that will appeal to a diversity of needs. Aviara and La Costa are probably the best known. Whether you desire an apartment, new construction, a gated community of luxury homes, ocean front and ocean view living, retirement housing, assisted living, or resort-style accommodations and condo hotel units, Carlsbad probably offers what you are seeking, in a climate many residents refer to as "paradise."
Take a TOUR OF SOME OF THE HOUSING in the area for a small sampling of the different types of homes Carlsbad has to offer.

Of course choosing a home you like, in a neighborhood that appeals to your lifestyle, is just part of the task. You might be wondering what Carlsbad offers as far as leisure activities, shopping and dining.
If eating out is your thing, TOUR SOME OF CARLSBAD RESTAURANTS (I only offer a small sampling here). But the BEST al fresco dining is on the beach at sunset!
THINGS TO DO
Perhaps you prefer shopping, the arts, and other outdoor activities - well, Carlsbad has that too. There's more information on things to do in the area on my website.

BUYING AND SELLING
If you are buying a home there is lots to do - searching for a home, touring properties and open houses, deciding on your perfect home and making a proposal to the sellers, reviewing and approving lots of paperwork, and for many, getting a loan, until finally you walk in the door of your new home. If you are a first time buyer, you have much to learn.
Lastly, you might be looking to hire a real estate professional to help you along the way to finding your new home, and/or to help you sell your current one. I am committed to understanding the needs of my clients and helping them to achieve THEIR goals. I am proud of my referral business and look forward to assisting you with your real estate needs.
Rather than spew out all sorts of stuff about myself, take a TOUR ABOUT ME and learn more about my services.
Well, that's it.
Thanks for joining me for a tour of this wonderful community.
I hope you had a good time, and will decide to make Carlsbad YOUR village by the sea!
