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:

Here’s a snapshot of the coronavirus market – there are plenty of lookers:

But the open-house extravaganza starts tomorrow at noon, and I like my chances!
It’s been shown four times by agents already, and a fifth couple rolled up when I was there today. Though they have an agent, I spent 30 minutes with them in hopes it might be the right fit.

Homes on Carlsbad Blvd. north of Tamarack are at street level and those residents are looking through car windows to see the ocean – and it’s a sliver, relatively, compared the view from our listing. Our building is 25 feet above the street, and set back another 20 feet so any road noise is manageable. You barely see the cars passing by, and out of sight is out of mind.
Check out our new listing at 111 Sequoia in Carlsbad! Enjoy spectacular ocean views from this highly-upgraded single-level home with no stairs! New kitchen, new baths, new flooring, new paint – just bring your toothbrush and enjoy the sunsets. Lie-down ocean view from master bedroom. This has south-facing windows for plenty of natural light too – a fantastic opportunity to live at the beach!
