Robertson Ranch (now sold out) is located in this area as well but only offered detached single family homes. We are now seeing resale activity.


For this report we look at housing activity for the 92010 area of Carlsbad for the 2nd quarter of 2019 for attached homes – condos, town homes and twin homes, as reported in the MLS.


A newer planned community, The Preserve, offers newly built town homes priced beginning in the high $500s, so Carlsbad home buyers can consider resales as well as new construction options (read 6 things buyers must know when buying new homes) if they are interested in a condo or town homes.



  •         32 attached homes sold in the 2nd quarter of 2019, 23% more than sales during the same period in 2018; this was also an increase in sales from the 1st quarter of this year, by 28%!
  •         Average sales price was $550,873, down 2% from the same period in 2018, but an increase by 2% from Q1 of 2019.
  •         Average marketing time was 24 days, with 9 homes selling in 7 days or less.
  •         The median sales price was $557,500 compared to $530,000 in Q1 2019 (up 5%) and $569,000 in Q2 2018 (down 2%).


Twin homes at The Trails in Carlsbad


Current inventory of attached homes, including the new construction based on the current rate of sales this year, is now only about 1.2 months in the 92010 area based on the rate of sales for the 2nd quarter; the housing market here continues to favor sellers, with plenty of competition for any homes when they hit the market and multiple offers.


Only 9% of the sales were cash transactions. Homes sold on average for 99% of the original list price, but with 47% of the buyers paying asking price or more for their homes, including the 5 new construction town homes at The Preserve that sold (generally these sell over asking price because of the upgrades and options that buyers include)!



  •         There are only 13 active listings, priced from $410,000 to $695,000
  •         Listings have been on the market an average of 29 days
  •         Living space ranges from 994 SF to 1843 SF with 2 – 4 bedrooms
  •         Average list price is $569,682 with a median price of $562,990
  •         3 of these listings are new construction starting at $562,990



  •         15 attached homes are pending, on the market for an average of 32 days before going under contract
  •         Homes were priced from $475,000 up to $678,990 (average price of $585,649).
