3-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad

February 2020 Update - Detached Single Family Homes

 

Carlsbad home buyers are often interested in buying a 3-bedroom detached single family home when it’s time to buy a new home, or the first one.

 

3-bedroom new home for sale in Carlsbad

 

Some Carlsbad buyers are first time home buyers, while others are down-sizing from a larger house. A 3-bedroom might specifically meet desired lifestyle and budgetary needs. And other buyers are looking for a Carlsbad beach home, near or on the ocean, and are willing to settle for a 3-bedroom home to be on or close to the beach, given the limited options.

The inventory of single family detached homes has increased only modestly in Carlsbad since the end of December, and inventory for the last 3 months is lower than it’s been since January 2018. Thus the housing market remains one that favors sellers due to supply and buyer demand (read the Carlsbad Real Estate Market Report for January 2020 for more details on the Carlsbad housing market).

 

Currently, based on the rate of sales in the last 3 months, we have only 1 month of single family detached homes with 3-bedrooms available, a market strongly favoring home sellers. If buyers are interested in a property they likely need to move quickly and be prepared with a strong offer.

 

3-bedroom homes make up only 15% of the current inventory of detached single family homes for sale in Carlsbad.

Buyers who prefer to have a single story Carlsbad home with 3 bedrooms have a limited number of options right now; roughly one-third of the 3-bedroom homes are single level.

 

While some buyers prefer new homes many are interested in resales, and of course there is a larger selection of these. Current 3-bedoom listings range in age from 1972 to newly-built or under construction. Buyers can expect some additional releases of new home – let me know if you are interested so we can stay in touch.

 

Bear in mind that new construction homes may not be immediately available for move in. And not all new construction is listed in our MLS. If buying a new home is of interest to you, give me a call at (760) 840-1360 and we can explore the current options for you in your price range (Read 6 Things Buyers Should Know About Buying New Homes in Carlslad).

The  photo of that 3 bedroom home looks like, what we describe in Central Oregon, as a "heart healthy" home - with 3 stories!

Hi Lynnea Miller 

I've not heard that but it's a great description. The neat thing is that these new homes in Carlsbad have roof decks with a variety of views.

Well that's really a crystal ball question, although in the high end communities it IS a buyer's market. RIght now in most areas the inventory is pretty low and demand, at the moment, is high.

It will be interesting to see what happens around the corona virus and how the public and housing market react. The stock market hit certainly hurts some people investments and may impact people's buying power.

I DO Barbara Todaro  Thank you for the kind words. There are not a lot of oppotunities for 3 bedroom homes right now - it's more competitive than for 4 and 5 bedroom homes.
