And if one is wanting to live in a gated community with a lot of social life, close to the beach, across the street from neighborhood shopping center - Lakeshore Gardens is very reasonable at $75,000 to $150,000 with one challenge - you have to be over 55 to live there. All the benefits of Carlsbad by the Sea without the big initial cost.

Hi Jeff. I've been wondering about costs in Carlsbad. My oldest son just moved there so our last trip down to SD, we made it a point to go through. Such a nice area. No wonder you love it there!

Steve - it's in a great location. Not everyone wants to pay the monthly land lease despite the low initial cost.

Karen - there are certainly plenty of homes also in the $500K - $1M range, and above. But affordability is so much better than 6 years ago

Funny, home prices between my Seattle area and your Southern California area were so different years ago. It still lingers in my memory that when I think of your beautiful Carlsbad I think absolutely everything is going to be way more expensive than it is here. I like your website and taking a look at the listings I'm honestly impressed with what you can get for under $500k...

Debbie - good for you. I would use a different price range in some other communities based on that market - in a couple I couldn't even talk about anything much below $1M except for condos and even then you are well into the $600s.

Thanks for the compliment, Bryan. I have to say the same about you in the Los Altos area. :)  I'm sure for some areas this price range seems rally broad but our options are sorta limited.

Fernando - I appreciate the compliment. It's a popular price range in Carlsbad for many, especially first time buyers.

Dave - and it's quite a bit more affordable than when I moved here in 2005. Then only about 9% of the people making the average salary could afford a home in Carlsbad. Rates and prices are much more favorable now.

Thanks, Rene. With the prices where they are and the interest rates the cost of buyinbg a Carlsbad, like in many other areas, is much improved from 6 years ago. Now the challenge is the low inventory.

George - well you won't get an argument from me on that.

Christine - agreed. And it is the most competitive range of pricing for buyers these days.
