We get a lot of calls from clients looking for manufactured homes. The problem that many run into is that many of the homes are located on lease land. That means you don't own the land that is underneath the house and the monthly fee's for leasing it can be expensive. For example, communities like Lakeshore Gardens has a land lease or commonly referred to as space rent for over $2,000 a month. This is on top of any mortgage payments you may have if you are getting a loan. Because of this we have a lot of clients looking for manufactured home communities where you own the land. Carlsbad has a couple different neighborhoods like Solamar that is located directly across the beach but has very limited inventory and real estate prices that are typically over $600,000. On average only one home comes on the market here every year.
A great alternative to the Solamar community is a small neighborhood of 20 homes called El Camino Estates. I actually found out about this small neighborhood from a client who was looking to find a home with no land lease. Since El Camino Estates homes rarely come on the market for sale he was looking for other similar type neighborhoods. Recently a new El Camino Estates home just came on the market and is currently listed at $475,000. It's a 3 bedroom, two bath with over 1,600 square feet of living space. This is a 55+ community so at least one person must be at least 55 years of old. For showings of homes similar to these please contact our local Carlsbad Real Estate agents at 760-710-0268.
