The Southern California Relocation Dude, originally from Boston (I relocated here in 2005), shares what he knows about Carlsbad and other North San Diego County communities. Whether you are interested in specific Carlsbad neighborhoods (or other communities), things to do (e.g., shopping, touristy stuff, recreation, dining), or local housing market conditions, you'll find it here. Search for Carlsbad homes for sale (and other nearby coastal areas, too), learn about new neighborhoods, and get the scoop on what YOU should know about buying and selling a home in Carlsbad or nearby. Let me know how I can help you! And if you are planning a relocation to or from my area, you'll find lots of tips about relocation, whether you are a buyer or a seller. And if you have friends or family elsewhere in the country I can help them, too, by finding the right Realtor in my vast network. Just let me know how I can help them either buy or sell.

I wrote an article some time ago that you could buy a detached home or condo in the North San Diego County area for under $100,000. That's still true, although the inventory in this price range has shrunk, and there are limitations on what and where you can buy.  The follow summary DOES NOT inclu...

We all remember high school - a time marked, in part at least, by being part of the "in" group...or not. It was a big deal. For many, perhaps traumatic, depending on whether you were in or out. Folks generally knew which group you were part of. And we were painfully aware as well. Some groups als...
