Carlsbad Homes, Town Homes and Condos with Views for Sale

 

Having a view of some sort is often on the list of Carlsbad buyers. For some it’s a  “must have."

 

Commonly buyers are hopeful for an ocean view. Others may be less particular but want a view other than the neighbor’s house.

 

Carlsbad views in La Costa

 

We’re fortunate here in Carlsbad, because the terrain offers lots of different views, such as hills, ocean, city lights, and canyons. Sometimes Carlsbad buyers must deal with a trade off - a great view with a less than desirable house, or a wonderful home but a not-so-nice view. The type of view, and how desirable it is, of course, is very much a personal matter. As is what you are willing and able to pay for it.

 

 

Many homes are listed in the MLS as having views of one sort of another, and there might be photos that show a view. And the “view” may not be clear until you check it out in person rather than relying on the photos. Only then will you know if it fits with your requirements.

 

 

If you are hoping for a view home in Carlsbad, what would you like? Greenbelt, open space, mountains/hills, ocean, lagoon, golf course, sunset, panoramic, and “city” lights are some of the types of views Carlsbad homes offer that appeal to home buyers.

 

 

Bear in mind that some views, especially ocean, come at a price compared to a comparable home without a view. And then there may be trade-offs – a great ocean view but you look down on the freeway, or through power lines and high tension wire towers. Or the panoramic view includes a mall or industrial area between you and the mountains.

 

 

View homes, in general, are more expensive than their non-view counter-parts…all things considered. And there may be more competition for those homes from other buyers looking for the same thing.

In contrast certain views are felt by home buyers to be detrimental - the freeway (particularly due to the noise), high-tension wires and towers, and industrial/retail areas are often on the “unacceptable” list. And typically those issues will be reflected in pricing, and are more difficult to sell.

 

 

MLS listings may state what the general views are (this information must be entered by the listing agent), especially if they are desirable, say panoramic or ocean. As with any property the only way to be sure a view is what you want, along with other features of the house, is to tour the property in person.

 

 

You might love the view but hate the house. Or the house fits your needs but the view is not what you prefer. An ocean-view might be amazing, or it may only be a peak through the trees or a tunnel view between neighboring houses, and miles away. You might prefer the view from the main living area or back yard, but it may only be from the upstairs!

 

 

Finding the right home with a view is very personal, and Carlsbad offers view single family homes for sale ranging from the $600s up to $18,000,000 (spectacular oceanfront) as of this writing. Condos and townhomes with views will generally start around $400,000.

Great information for prospective buyers, Jeff Dowler - it could be the house or the view but, if you are fortunate enough to find both, you are one lucky buyer! 

Love the views available in Carlsbad, Jeff!  Great shots, as always!

Hi Jeff -- it's true all views are not created equal.  Having a knowledgeable real estate guide like you is especially important for anyone looking to make a move in the North San Diego County markets you serve.

Views are such a personal thing. You can change houses by remodeling them, but views, especially unobstructed views not subject to change, are priceless. People don't often think about their view when buying and think the way things are are the way they will always stay until somebody builds a second story, plants towering trees or installs high fences.

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents  Those are always important things to investigate. Things DO change. Some buyers are willing to pay the premium to get a home with the right view...sometimes the options are limited.

Thanks Ginny Gorman  for the well wishes and the compliment. Nocomplaints from me about the beauty here in Carlsbad
