April 2022 Market Reports – North County Communities

Carlsbad Market Report

Here are the April 2022 Market Reports for 11 North San Diego County communities.

Our housing market in 2022 remains competitive, with changes taking place each month. Inventory remains tight but showing some improvement, and buyer demand is still strong although it appears to be lessening.

The information in these market reports is taken from the MLS. Hence, data are believed to be accurate when these reports were compiled, but are not guaranteed.

Market reports help me assist buyers and sellers make informed selling and buying decisions. Furthermore, understanding housing market conditions will help you with purchase and sale decisions when the time comes.

Local market conditions impact buying and selling simply because of supply and demand. In addition, this affects marketing time, competition for limited inventory, and sales prices compared to list prices.

It’s well known that real estate truly IS local!! Thus, you cannot always believe what you see in media headlines! Media reports are far too general, and often not consistent with current conditions.

Each buyer and seller situation is unique. I’m happy to share insights on what market trends can mean for your personal timing, budget, expectations and decision making. This can be specific to the market segment of interest – a zip code, neighborhood, size of house, or price range.

CLICK on the individual market report links below for the APRIL 2022 statistics for each community. April was a fairly busy time for buyers, sellers, and agents, with shifts in average prices, inventory, and sales volume from March. However, each community is different even though we saw some general trends!

Please call me at (760-840-1360) to discuss your personal housing needs, budget, and real estate decisions you hope to make. The housing market still favors sellers overall, and there are important issues to consider, such as planning your offer strategy, or a list price.

If you plan to selling AND buy, there are particular challenges due to timing, coordinating both transactions, and more!

GETTING PRE-APPROVED

Do you need to get pre-approved for a loan? If so, I can share contact information of several lenders I know personally so you can decide who to call. A pre-approval is necessary when buying a home, unless you have cash, and most people don’t. Furthermore, a pre-approval helps you understand your purchasing power. In this fast-moving and competitive market you need to know what you can truly afford.

In addition, sellers and their agents will expect proof you are qualified when you make an offer.
