I often get asked by home buyers in the Carlsbad real estate market about new construction homes and their availability.
We had a good amount of new construction (mostly detached homes) in the last several years, especially in South Carlsbad, and much of that is now gone, with a few exceptions (some condos at The Bluffs, detached homes in the $1 Million range at La Costa Ridge, new homes at Viridian and Trieste at La Costa Greens - prices and availability have changed since there article were written). But there is more on the way.
Carlsbad home buyers who wish to take advantage of the $10,000 new home tax credit may have some other options this year at La Costa Greens, in addition to what you can read about in my recent post, Ways to Spend the California $10,000 Tax Credit.
DON'T FORGET about the $8,000 First TIme Home Buyer Credit also if you meet the qualifications. Imagine - you COULD get up to a total of $18,000 in tax credits.

Avellino at La Costa Greens will feature 2 and 3-story attached town homes in a small complex of about 80 homes just east of El Camino Real (within walking distance to shopping and restaurants, unless you play the lazy Californian). There are 3 plans available, ranging in size from 1650 SF up to 2216 SF, all with private yards that vary in size. Two-car garages are part of the package. Buyers, if they purchase in time, will have the option to include elevators (a plus in the 3 story) as well as some configurations to include 2 masters instead of a master plus 2 bedrooms.
A number of units will have nice views of the La Costa hills on the other side of the golf course.
Units will be in several different configurations - 2 units, 3 units (with the 3-story unit in the middle), and 4 units. Phase 1 is expected to be ready for closing and occupancy by the end of November 2009. Pricing has not been finalized but my guess (and chatting with the sales person) is we may see these units starting in the mid $500s.
HOA fees are about $205 with total property taxes including Mello Roos at 1.3%. Residents will have use of the popular Presidio, the private residents club with swimming pool, spa, gourmet kitchen and meeting rooms.
Children will attend Poinsettia Elementary School in the Carlsbad Schools (most La Costa Greens communities are in the San Marcos School District).
