4-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad

March 28, 2019 Update


Carlsbad home buyers are often interested in more space than a 3-bedroom single family detached home can offer. Is that you?


Extra space might be needed for multigenerational living, or for accommodating an expanding household. It could be that a family member needs a home office, or additional guest living space might be important.


4-bedroom Carlsbad homeWhile 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 2019 - about 40% since the end of December.


Take a look at the most recent market report for Carlsbad at February 2019 Carlsbad Real Estate Market Report for updates on what’s been happening in our market recently.


As a result of the inventory increases since the holidays we now have 2.4 months of inventory of single family detached homes with 4-bedrooms, based on the current rate of sales since the 1st of the year. 4-bedroom homes make up 41% of the total inventory of detached single family homes currently listed for sale in Carlsbad.

Good morning Jeff - buyers should talk to you rather than or after looking online since you have information on none MLS properties.
