Carlsbad Home Sales Take Hit but Realtors Hope the Lower Mortgage Rates will Help Change the Market
By Nick Rian

Carlsbad, California is showing a hit from the rising prime interest rate.
Average home prices in the village dropped as interest rates climbed. The average sales price in Carlsbad fell from $811,173 in January to $733,594 in April.

"The Carlsbad, CA real estate market has been in a stall for the last couple of quarters," says realtor Mike Murphy. "Many buyers have been sitting on the sidelines, while sellers begin to realize that the top of the market appears to have occurred some months back. Smart sellers realize that they cannot chase the market, but instead should price their properties aggressively. When properties are priced to the market, they will sell. Both sides of the equation are now realizing that the market has shifted to one that favors buyers and that rewards sellers who understand market conditions and price their property accordingly."

Home prices have rebounded up to $898,810 in June and back down to $764,820 in July.

"The prior market where sellers could sell to the highest frantic bidder is long gone," says realtor Roberta Murphy. "Pricing is now determined by the market, and what a willing and able buyer is willing to pay. That buyer, in turn, may compete with other buyers to determine an equitable sales price."

Home sales climbed steadily during the first quarter, from 43 units sold in January to 9 sold in March. But as the interest rate leveled off at 3.25%, the number of homes sold inched downward to 74 units sold in July.
