Housing Market Report for Carlsbad 92008 & Other Zip Codes

Home sales in the 92008 area of Carlsbad were pretty active in the 2nd quarter of 2018, with some shifts from the same period in 2017

Here are links to the Q2 2018 market reports for 92009, 92010 and 92011 for comparison purposes.

For this market report we look only detached single family home sales, plus current listings and pendings as of this writing.

The 92008 area of Carlsbad covers a broad area, including Carlsbad Village, Telescope Point, Olde Carlsbad and The Barrio (Olde Carlsbad, east of the Village, and The Barrio are the oldest and Carlsbad’s first neighborhoods), expensive beach-front areas in the Village along Ocean  and south along Carlsbad Boulevard to the oceanfront neighborhood of Terramar, the lagoon-front Bay Cove neighborhood, a number of condo communities and residential neighborhoods close to the Agua Hedionda Lagoon, and more.


64 single family detached homes sold which is 3% more than in the same period in 2017, and double the number of sales in the first quarter of this year, signs of an active Spring market.

The average sales price was $1,088,460, down 15% from Q2 2017 (in part due to the sale of a home in Q2 2017 priced at over $5M that raised the average last year)
