You can contact me and discuss your needs, wants and desires and then I can put together a much more detailed search which can include over 200 categories along with a map search. This is going to be your most accurate, detailed search possible on any platform without exception. The categories and the data come directly from the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) where all the San Diego County Real Estate agents are required to input their listings along with pictures and details.
The best way to accomplish your home search goals is to sit and go thru the search options together in front of a computer. That way you will be able to see what the options and limitations are. We may have to build several searches to reach your objective. If you wanted a single story Carlsbad home but not many were available in your price range or area, we could do a second search for a two story home with a Master Bedroom on the entry level. We might also do a third search for a 2 story home with a den or a bedroom on the entry level. You will never be able to do this type of searching and detail any better than meeting with Dennis Smith.
I can send these homes to you in many different frequencies. If you are searching for a home and are ready to make an offer as soon as a property that meets your needs, you need this information ASAP!!! I can set it up that you receive your home search results within a few minutes of the listing agent hitting the “Save” button on the MLS. You would know almost immediately if there was a new listing, a listing that dropped in price or fell out of escrow and returned to the market. Do not need the information immediately? I can send it to you daily, weekly, monthly or every “X” number of days. You can also pick the time of day you will receive your information.
Once I have set this up, you will be able to view the homes you have found any time you want because the search results are always going to be accurate as of the time you log into your search results portal.

The building industry refers to it as an accessory apartment or accessory dwelling unit (ADU) but homeowners commonly call it a granny flat. Perhaps, the name was coined because it was mainly to accommodate aging parents and grandparents.
You may see the following terms in listings: bonus unit, mother-in-law unit, carriage unit, casita, in-law apartment, granny pod or in Hawaii, they call it an ohana unit. They’re all different names but they all mean the same thing. They can be used for nannies or caregivers, for single members of the family, empty nesters, for grandparents in their 80s or 90s, for children moving back home, or in areas where they don’t ban renting of a granny flat, it can be a rental unit too. Carlsbad meets the zoning requirements for granny flats.
A granny flat typically includes a sleeping area and a living area, a kitchen and its own separate entrance, but not all the time.
One of the designs is called a stealth in-law flat because it’s created from the existing rooms in the house. You can also convert your garage, reinvent your basement, or redo your attic or cottage. If you’re thinking of adding this homestead to your property, you don’t have to change the blueprint of your house, you just need to be inventive.
There are approximately 338 active homes for sale in Carlsbad City. And a lot of these properties are decent single family and immaculate luxury homes with attached granny flats.
