The final build-out of La Costa Oaks in SE Carlsbad is underway.

The Copperwood tract, which is up and over the ridge with some ocean views, enjoyed great success in the $800,000 to $1,200,000 range.

These two new tracts are on the backside of the same hill, where there is traffic noise from Rancho Santa Fe Rd., and influence from San Elijo Hills, giving more of a San Marcos feel to the area (though they’re in the Encinitas school district).

But price is everything – buying a new house in Carlsbad from the high-$600,000s that has Encinitas schools is a hot ticket.  Look at the crowds that came out yesterday for the grand openings:

If you are interested in having us to assist you, email There is no charge, the builders pay us – but Richard or I will need to accompany you on your first visit.

What can we do for you on new construction? 1) There is heavy pressure to use the builders’ lender, we’ll help determine if you are getting a fair deal. 2) The upgrades are expensive; we’ll assist with identifying which are cost-effective. 3) We’ll have our professional inspector complete a thorough review of the property prior to closing to make sure they built it right.  4) We’ll keep giving you bubbleinfo along the way.
