They got an offer of $2,600,000 for the model home pictured here, and they turned it down. They will be shooting for $3,000,000!
Oceanside was developed much earlier than Carlsbad – the black dots above are the existing buildings in 1908. The Mission San Luis Rey should be the dot right under the O in PROFESSIONAL PAPER at the top right.

Oceanside goes back to the 1800’s:
My buyers offered full price for this house on the first day, and we were fifth out of five offers. One buyer included the escalation clause, which meant he was willing to pay $1,000 over the highest bid.
It’s not a great way to determine the winner if you look at it logically – wouldn’t any buyer pay $1,000 over? Instead, the sellers decided to sign a $1,230,000 offer the first night, which was literally $51,000 over list price.

Is it Old Carlsbad, or Olde Carlsbad? Wiki uses the first version.
We can’t upload our listings directly to Zillow any more; instead they get auto-uploaded from the MLS if the broker agrees. But we can manually upload it as a Coming Soon – this will be in the MLS tomorrow once I receive the pro photos:
There are still bugs to be worked out. Apparently Zillow’s direct-connect to the MLS isn’t picking up the pendings, which was always one of the biggest complaints – listings that were pending or sold would still show as active listings on Zillow. They still do.
Another video tour for an out-of-town buyer. This home was listed for $1,075,000 in September of last year, and closed for $950,000 in March, 2017. The answer to the question asked was Aviara Oaks schools:
An old tour of a modern contemporary house on the La Costa Golf Course – this sold for $1,628,000 in September, 2015:
Here’s another video shot for an out-of-town buyer. This would be a sought-after listing today – it sold for $1,475,000 in July, 2015:
