Carlsbad tends to have a limited number of ocean front condos when compared with other beach towns in San Diego county.  The large majority of these condos are located on the street called "The Strand" is where you will find the most amazing properties located on the beach.  This street ends at a certain point and the street called "South Pacific Street" becomes the small section where you will also find very nice beach front homes and condos.  Located towards the very end of Pacific Street where it meets Carlsbad Blvd is the last beach front condo building commonly known as Las Brisas.  We typically call this type of location as an end unit location which means you get to enjoy direct ocean views as well as side views of the Carlsbad coastline.  These

We recently received a call from one of our clients that was interested in putting her home on the market.  The home had been a rental for about 20 years but was still in relatively good condition.  One of her friends indicated to her that she should sell the property "as-is" so she would not have to worry about fixing any repairs, etc to the home.  She asked me if I thought this was a good idea and I said buyers can look at this one of two ways.  First, when a home is being advertised for sale in "as-is" condition some buyers believe that the home will need a lot of work which the owner is not willing to do.  I have to admit when I hear that phrase I often wonder myself if there are any repairs that need to be made.  There is another set of buyers that

Carlsbad has had a number of a number of brand new construction homes and communities that have been built in the last several years.  One of the biggest communities was the Robertson Ranch neighborhood which featured upscale homes located in 4 different neighborhoods to choose from.  There have also been several smaller neighborhoods that has been built in the last several years with a variety of detached single family homes to residential townhouses and condos.  There are many owners who buy these newer homes as investment properties and quickly rent them out after making a purchase.  These are great properties to find for lease since you are moving into a home that potentially has never been lived in.

Carlsbad has a wide range of rentals from luxury ocean view condos to large two story estate homes.  One of the more requested type of home are those properties located on one story.  It seems like this is becoming the trend as more and more people are looking for homes that accommodate a main floor bedroom which are incorporated into single level properties.  Carlsbad has so many great communities it would be hard to explain every single neighborhood where you could find one story homes.  With that being said some of the more popular places to look for detached single family homes would be like the La Costa area of Carlsbad.  There are many great one story properties located here that often come with a good lot size especially if it's an older home.

One of the most common questions we get from real estate home buyers is the question about Mello Roos.  I heard this term a lot when I first moved to California and had no idea what people were talking about.  It's worth getting to know this term as it can cost you a lot of money if the home has it.  It's pretty simple, home builders are always looking to save costs when building a brand new community.  Often times they will create a bond called Mello Roos which essentially pass on many of the neighborhood building costs to the buyer.  Things like sidewalks, streets, etc are costs that are often paid by the buyer in a Mello Roos bond.  The bond itself normally ranges around 30 years but I've seen it as low as 25 years, it all depends on various factors.

Real Estate agents have a great tradition that helps them learn what homes are on the market at any given time.  The term Broker Preview is what is commonly referred to as an open house for real estate agents which happened on a given day and time every week.  This way agents can have a chance to view any of the newly listed homes on the market without having to make an appointment with the listing agent.  This is crucial as time is of the essence and during a broker preview it's not unrealistic to see anywhere from 10 to 15 homes within a three hour window.  Often times agents will specialize in a specific neighborhood which makes it crucial that have seen every home that comes on the market in their area.

Each town has it's own date and time when
