There has to be a reason why my numbers are so high – it’s not the good looks or dazzling personality:
My new listing of a stylish one-story home on a terrific culdesac in SW Carlsbad. Lovingly expanded and remodeled over the last few years, this home is ready for those buyers searching for perfection! Completely rebuilt kitchen, master suite (with huge walk-in closet), roof, HVAC, water heater, flooring, paint, landscape/hardscape – heck, it has everything! Attractively priced too – 1736 Mallow Ct. just closed on June 2nd for $1.115 million, and it’s one block away and only 1,517sf – making ours look like a deal at 1,833sf and turnkey!

To address potential reduction of operable indoor space due to social distancing requirements, the City of Carlsbad is processing requests to allow for temporary use of public sidewalks and private parking lots – which sounds better than closing State St. altogether. Win-win?
Here are ways to contribute to the creation of reasonably-priced housing:
The San Diego Habitat for Humanity ReStores are home improvement discount stores with a simple premise: by selling new and gently used donated goods, we can fund the construction of new Habitat homes in San Diego County.
Home products are sold to the public at 30-70% below retail prices. The ReStore offers mostly brand-new furniture and home goods from stores like Restoration Hardware and Wayfair, but there are also great deals on slightly used gear too. Shop ReStore online!
Clearing out your house? They gratefully accept donations of items in good-working condition, such as appliances, furniture, tile, lighting, windows, cabinets, tools, and more. Please click here for a full list of acceptable items. Or call them at 619-241-2221 or send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll be happy to answer your questions!
Are you looking for stuff like doors, windows, appliances, etc.? Check the Escondido store. The Carlsbad store is primarily furniture and home goods.

The first round of protests today looked orderly, and because it’s a walking experience of several miles, the crowd was mostly younger and fit. If there were looters, they were well-disguised:
A big community gathering is exciting for our sleepy little beach town, and the protests planned for this weekend are likely to draw a crowd. Here’s how merchants are preparing:
Another spin around the rapidly developing downtown Carlsbad area……where everything is $900,000 and up now! Two or three more years of this and long-time locals won’t recognize it!
The first flip we’ve seen since the ‘rona hit. This listed for $899,000 on March 25th, and sold for $950,000:
