Congrats to Curtis and team for selling this new-build for full price:
Because they are building such large houses, the one-story plans barely fit on these interior lots that have slopes. Toll has literally redesigned smaller versions so they can get a bigger backyard.
There are so many new-home tracts underway in Carmel Valley that those thinking of reselling an older home may want to wait it out – or risk having to battle it out, price-wise, against stiff competition:
Many will lament the redevelopment of downtown Carlsbad, but it is happening everywhere as big money takes over. It’s not just the look that’s changing either.
The old Sears at UTC is being completely re-purposed, and new companies that never existed before are coming in to provide services we didn’t even know we needed.
Carmel Valley’s Del Mar Highlands is adding 120,000sf of upscale retail tenants to compete with the One Paseo mixed-use project across the street. Horton Plaza is getting re-worked, Mission Valley has already transformed, and surely other old parts of town will get upgraded in the near future.
There doesn’t seem to be any way to stop it either. Let’s make the best of it?Link to Article
Once upon a time Carlsbad was a sleepy little beachside town, but now big money is taking over. Here’s a tour of projects being discussed on the street:
I’d love to see more projects like this one. No prices published on their website, but doesn’t everything new in the village have to be over a million?
For those who think there is no hope left in the $500,000 range, consider what you can get just 17 miles from the I-5 and 76 intersection:
Saturday is the grand opening of One Paseo, the master-planned community in Carmel Valley that has been 13 years in the making. Here is my video, and their video which includes a cameo of Becca from Bachelorette Season 14:
The top-of-the-line Pardee tract in Carmel Valley opened this weekend, and they had hundreds of people show up. The first release had eight homes available, starting in the $1,700,000s, but prices go up quickly from there:
With so many homes being built in Pacific Highlands Ranch, the Solana Beach school district is struggling to catch up. They need to build a new elementary school, or expand the existing ones. It looks like they are a little short on funds to build a new school (would they bump the Mello-Roos?), or instead they could bring in more portable classrooms:Link to school district comparisons
Those spending the first $1.75M to $3.2M will live on Skyglitter Trails:
I went to the grand opening today of these $2,000,000 tract homes and thought because of the rain that I might be the only one there. Wrong! There were hundreds of people – and this isn’t Carmel Valley – not even close:
