Carlsbad 4-Bedroom Homes for Sale

May 2, 2018 Market Update


Many home buyers in Carlsbad desire more space in a single family detached home for sale. For some buyers extra space may be needed for multigenerational living or to accommodate a growing household. A family member may need a home office, or additional guest living space may be necessary.


While the supply of single family detached homes continues to be limited in Carlsbad, we have seen a pretty decent increase in listings since the beginning of the year especially in March (here’s the March 2018 Carlsbad Real Estate Market Report with more details).

Despite the inventory increase, based on the rate of sales in April we have only 1.7 months of inventory of single family detached homes with 4-bedrooms, based on the current rate of sales. 4-bedroom homes make up about half (48%) of the total inventory of detached single family homes currently for sale in Carlsbad.



73 detached single family homes

$695,000 to $5,900,876 (oceanfront)

Living space ranges from 1591 SF to 5664 SF

Average Time on Market – 39 days

Average List Price - $1,313,506


Of the 73 homes for sale 6 (28%) are priced below $1M, offering a range of options for Carlsbad home buyers. Here’s the breakdown on pricing:


$750,000 and below              1

$750,001 - $1,000,000            24

$1,000,001 - $1,500,000        35

$1,500,001 - $2,500,000        11

$2,501,000 - $5,000,000        1

Over $5,000,000                    1


Carlsbad buyers who are interested in a single story home have fewer choices, with 11 single story homes with 4-bedrooms available, as compared to 15 3-bedroom single story options.


Buyers have options in terms of the age of the home if that’s important to them. Of the current listings homes range in age from 1947 to new; there are 9 homes built in 2016, 2017 and 2018 for sale, mostly in Robertson Ranch, several of which are model homes.


Please give me a call at (760) 840-1360 if you are interested in brand new homes; I will check and find out the full inventory (existing or planned) although my understanding is the community is nearing completion. You might want to read about the essential things buyers should know about buying new construction since there are major differences from buying a resale
