NSDCC 4Q12 Was Cooking

With the sales over the first three quarters of 2012 being very active (+17% YOY), and a presidential election bearing down on us, it would have made sense to expect a quieter 4Q12. But instead, it was as hot as a pistol around NSDCC.

Here is how 4Q12 compared to 4Q11 in each area:

Town or Area 4Q11 Sales LP Avg $/sf 4Q12 Sales SP Avg $/sf
Cardiff
18
$403/sf
24
$473/sf
Carlsbad

$256/sf

$274/sf

Solana Bch

$444/sf

$488/sf
NSDCC
582
$367/sf
806
$399/sf

A strong improvement in most areas, and the 806 overall sales were the most in a fourth quarter since 2003!¬†There is substantial momentum coming into this year, but it won’t mean much if there aren’t enough sellers to satisfy what appears to be a fairly healthy demand.

Mortgage rates will be a factor, but as long as they are in the 3s, buyers will stay engaged Рsince rates dipped under 4%, the market has been in full-tilt-boogie mode.  Note the 3/4% increase between October, 2010 and February, 2011:

  1. Which zip codes in Carlsbad were responsible for the jump in $/sf?

    I will guess…
    1.) 92011
    2.) 92009
