Lakeshore Gardens Carlsbad Space Rent Fee

Posted by Sam Smith on Wednesday, April 4th, 2018 at 3:48pm.

We get a lot of questions regarding the Lakeshore Gardens land lease in Carlsbad, California.  First, these are manufactured homes in a secure gated community near the beach.  Many of our clients get excited due to the close proximity to the beach and low real estate prices that currently start at $129,000 for this senior community where one resident must be at least 55 years old.  The trade off for the low real estate prices is that you don't own the land underneath your home.  This is often called a "land lease" or "space rent" when dealing with manufactured homes.  Essentially, you are leasing that land where the manufactured home sits on which is paid on a monthly basis.  The space rents vary from property to property so it's important to check with the owner or your real estate agent for the exact cost on any individual home.  A quick check on the 7 current available listings showed the space rent ranging from $1,500.00 to $1,875.00 a month.

Lakeshore Gardens is located on 54 acres of land with a total of 384 homes and 10 small lakes as pictured below.  There is so much to do here with a large community center that has year around activities with a fitness center, billiard room, library, pool, spa and outdoor barbecue area.  All of these amenities are included in the land lease or space rent fee.  The complex is gated so homes are shown by appointment only.  We handle many showings in this community and would be happy to give you a tour.  Please call us direct at 760-710-0268.  It's important to note that all home purchases in Lakeshore Gardens does run through the approval process of the property management company which can take up to an approximate 17 days.  For those who prefer to own the land underneath their home should consider the nearby Solamar manufactured home community.  Real Estate prices are more than double here but with no land lease and a location that is located directly across the street from the sandy beach.

2 Responses to "Lakeshore Gardens Carlsbad Space Rent Fee"

DIANE RUSH wrote: I know this is really just a meaningless comment, but I just wonder how much future homeowners might be willing to pay to live at Lakeshore Gardens. When we had a home there approximately 8 years ago there was rent control and we paid $900 a month to rent our space. In just a few short years rents will be at around $2000 for those by the ponds. Home prices for new places are now in the mid-300's and up and since they are manufactured homes without a garage they only average around 1550 square feet. It's wonderful to live by the beach but honestly, how are 55+ folks supposed to afford their space rent plus a loan of some sort on a new home itself, unless you purchase an old home originally built in the 1970's or 1980's and perhaps pay cash. With these old homes you usually have to do a remodel. I can't say this is only true for Lakeshore Gardens as I see other mobile home parks have similar rents along the coast. I can only say my husband and I, after calculating the space rent amount for just five years, decided to take our money and buy a home instead. It seems like a much smarter move financially even though it takes us 20 minutes to get to the beach now.
Like I mentioned earlier, my comments don't really mean anything or offer a solution. It's just my own thought process on how overpriced these communities by the beach are now and are they truly worth it?

Sam Smith wrote: Great comment Diane. We get a ton of calls for people considering Lakeshore Gardens due to the close proximity to the beach and the lower price points when compared with other homes in Carlsbad. They seem to be very interested until the learn about the high space rent fee's. They always ask about which mobile home parks don't have space rents and we always recommend the Solamar community even though real estate prices are around $500,000 and most people can't afford that. I think you are right that most 55+ buyers will not be willing to pay these high space rent fee's. It will be interesting to see how things play out in the next several years when the market does make an adjustment.
