4-Bedroom Homes for Sale in Carlsbad
April 23, 2020 Update
Carlsbad home buyers sometimes desire more space than a 3-bedroom single family detached home offers, perhaps due to an expanding household or multigenerational living. Maybe a family member needs a home office, or additional guest living space might be desirable.
Our supply of single family detached homes continues to be limited in Carlsbad compared to demand, although inventory has increased since the beginning of 2020.
Take a look at the most recent market report for Carlsbad at March 2020 Carlsbad Real Estate Market Report for updates on the Carlsbad housing market.
As of this report we only have 1.6 months of inventory of single family detached homes with 4-bedrooms, based on the rate of sales over the last 3 months, a market that strongly favors sellers. 4-bedroom homes are about 41% of the total inventory of detached single family homes on the market in Carlsbad.
