4-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad
August 2018 Update
Some home buyers in Carlsbad desire more space than a 3-bedroom single family detached home provides. For some buyers extra space may be needed for multigenerational living, or to accommodate a growing household. A family member may want a home office, or additional guest living space may be needed.
While the supply of single family detached homes continues to be limited in Carlsbad compared to demand, we have seen a pretty decent increase in listings since the beginning of the year especially in the spring (here’s the July 2018 Carlsbad Real Estate Market Report with more details).
Despite the inventory increase we have only 2.5 months of inventory of single family detached homes with 4-bedrooms, based on the current rate of sales. 4-bedroom homes make up 46% of the total inventory of detached single family homes listed for sale in Carlsbad.
