carlsbad ca real estate: Ways To make The Most Of Your Carlsbad Backdyard Space - 05/31/15 05:54 AM
An anthropological UCLA study, described in the book “Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century,” blames our fascination with digital devices — tablets, computers, televisions, games — for keeping us cooped up. The UCLA research participants spent less than half an hour each week in their outdoor space. And these were Californians.
So this summer let’s make a pledge to pay more than lip service to Carlsbad outdoor living so we can be happier, create lasting memories, and generally take advantage of what home has to offer.

carlsbad ca real estate: Carlsbad Real Estate Size Trend Might Reverse…Eventually - 05/13/15 06:55 AM
You would think that smaller homes would be skyrocketing in popularity right about now. Statistics show that the average number of people in American households is shrinking. Practicality would seem to dictate that a trend toward downsizing should be underway, with significant implications for San Diego real estate.
It’s no exaggeration to say that for as long as many Americans can remember, bigger has always been better. In terms of sheer floor space, the average American home increased from 1,900 square feet in 1993 to 2,400 two decades later. The reasons may have been both practical and psychological: for those who … (0 comments)

When you Google “seeking the best professional,” in about a half a second you are presented with 403 million candidates (not to play favorites, Search Engine Wise, when you ask Bing the same thing, it gives you a mere 62.6 million…which might actually prove more useful, since it would only take you a little more than a year to scan each for 2 seconds).
Narrowing the quest, when you Google “seeking the best Realtor®,” it gives you just a few less than 2,000,000 likely results. Since anyone seeking the best real estate professional to buy or sell their home isn’t after one … (0 comments)

carlsbad ca real estate: Spring Not Only Bringing Flowers But Mortgage Turnaround? - 03/16/15 08:10 PM
The first day of spring is March 20. Not only will the Carlsbad flower fields be blooming  but it's the red-letter day on the San Diego real estate calendar. Spring forward also means the kickoff to the  traditionally rambunctious spring selling season—historically, the go-go time of year. It’s when more homes come on the market, more prospective buyers come out to see them, and more sales are launched than in any other season. As exciting as it is to welcome another spring, this year what happens three days later might well turn out to be just as noteworthy.
