Carlsbad Market Report for October 2017



The Carlsbad real estate market continues to change, and the statistics for October show several shifts from last month and from 1 year ago. These data do not include private sales or manufactured/mobile/multi-family housing; the numbers are derived from the MLS and are believed to be accurate at the time they are reported but are not guaranteed.



Media reports speak in general terms, and not about the local Carlsbad housing market. Current data, and knowledge, about the local market conditions benefits you as a buyer or seller so you can make informed purchase and sale decisions about Carlsbad homes for sale.
