Lagoon Front

We taped this during the frenzy, and I conveniently forgot about it. It may have been due to price?

It closed in April for 8% under list, which made it the most-expensive non-oceanfront sale ever in Carlsbad:

Aviara One-Story Video Tour

There is a mystery foot in the beginning of the interior tour in this video, and it would be a good time to acknowledge the difference made by my wife Donna.

We knew on Saturday that our client’s purchase offer was accepted, contingent upon this house selling. Between Monday and Thursday night, Donna got the home carpeted, painted, and staged by her favorite vendors – people who regularly drop everything to help her out.  It is a testimony to how well she has nurtured her relationships with them over the years, and when she needs a favor, she can get one!

Aviara One-Story on Culdesac!

3 br + loft/2.5 ba, 2,593sf

YB: 1996

HOA + MR = $125/mo.

Lot size: 9,529sf

LP = $1,800,000

Immaculate Davidson-built one-story with pool/spa, Owned Solar, 3-car, putting green, and upgraded interior all on a great cul-de-sac near the lagoon walking trail, Aviara golf course, and Park Hyatt Resort! New carpet and paint, high ceilings, plantation shutters throughout, travertine master bath with walk-in closet, plus roomy loft/master retreat with huge walk-in closet too! Being on the west side of the street gives you two great benefits – afternoon sun for your pool area, and your house doesn’t get hit by golf balls like the model-match across the street that just sold for $2,110,000! Other model-match sold comp (1327 Savannah) closed in June for $2,050,000 – wow!

Open house 12-3pm this Saturday and Sunday, September 17th & 18th.

There’s Hope For Contingent Sales!

We opened escrow today on my first contingent sale in 2+ years – where my buyer has to sell their home to purchase the subject property.

There were two offers submitted – and BOTH were contingent upon selling another property!

Thankfully, the house we’re going to sell is a single-level home in Aviara, which was well-known to the listing agent – plus I submitted my price, a thorough set of comps, and photos to help him with the decision.

It means we’ll have an open-house extravaganza coming this weekend, and get to test the demand for a prime one-story home with all the extras….including an attractive price! Stay tuned for more on Thursday!

 

NSDCC Summer Update

The July stats have been updated on these interactive graphs of the 92009 (SE Carlsbad), 92024 (Encinitas), and 92130 (Carmel Valley) markets:

We hear how the inventory has exploded, but compare it to history:

Sales during the 2022 selling season have been similar to February/March numbers:

It’s good to see the insane-bidding-over-the-list-price has slowed:

We’ve pulled forward about ten years’ worth of appreciation – sellers will be reluctant to give it back:

Recessed lighting was added to ALL bedrooms, downstairs office, living room, kitchen/dining. Many of the wall switches were upgraded to vacancy sensors (or timers) and/or dimmers.
