Retire to Carlsbad – We Have Single Story Homes!

Carlsbad Single Story Homes for Sale

Have you made up your mind about buying your home as you retire in Carlsbad, CA?

They call this paradise for a reason and it keeps getting better and better. The popular coastal community of Carlsbad is known for many things which make relocating and retiring to this place so easy.

Let me highlight why the single story homes of Carlsbad are so desirable, give you info about this city, and make an informed decision on your purchase as you spend your best retirement years in this city.

Real Estate Properties for Sale in Carlsbad

Why would you want to retire in Carlsbad?

The weather here is not too hot or too cold. It’s possible to get into the 40s at night in the winter but you will also get temperatures of 60s or even 70s. This kind of weather is perfect for a walk on the beach. The 7-mile sea stretch is well-kept and developed for more water activities. This means that a weekend activity with your friends can be spent here without a time limit or a pending work tomorrow.

You can always enjoy an afternoon of kite flying, swimming or just lounging by the sea, and sunbathing while reading your favorite classic novel.

For boomers and senior citizens who want to maintain an active lifestyle, I can recommend at least three golf clubs in the area with higher than a 4 star rating. The Aviara Golf Club, The Crossings and Rancho. It’s time to get into practice!

Carlsbad is also an art nouveau haven. So if you’re a Monet or Van Gogh follower, go for it! The Cannon Art Gallery, and Museum of Making Music both hold exhibits all throughout the year.

Food won’t be a challenge because the options are unlimited when it comes to restaurants, whether it’s affordable or luxurious choices found in several malls in Carlsbad.

For retirees who bring their grandchildren, if they decide to study in Carlsbad, there are 23 K-12 public schools, 12 private schools and a couple of colleges or universities with an average A rating from Homefacts.

And finally, bring them to Legoland California on holidays. Or if you want to go solo, reminisce the good old days in Carlsbad Flower Fields. Visit the Orchid Greenhouse as well as the Poinsettia Greenhouse exhibit. Revive your love of flower arrangements!

Everything’s coming up roses here!

What You Need to Consider When Buying Carlsbad Homes for Sale with Granny Flats

Real estate listings in Carlsbad

Are you looking for the perfect solution for your older loved ones who hate the idea of moving into a rest home?

A home with a granny flat might just be the answer you need!

Our grandparents and relatives are important. No matter what you do in life, who you become, where you live, who you are with —their role in our life is unquestionable. They nurture us and take care of us. That is why  we have to make sure they are provided with care and comfort as they age.

Carlsbad homes for sale with granny flats

A home with a granny flat is a perfect alternative for those who want their elderly relatives to live with them.

The home is called a granny flat because it is a popular way for families to accommodate their aging parents. It is also sometimes called a granny pod, mother-in-law unit, in-law apartment, bonus unit, casita, and carriage unit.

It is a self-contained living space usually situated on the grounds of a single-family home. It is normally designed for one or two persons and can be detached, or attached to the other home. It is known as an accessory apartment or accessory dwelling unit in the building industry.

A granny flat has many other uses aside from being a residence for older loved ones. It can be used as a home office, especially if you can’t work inside your main home.

It can also be used as temporary residence for adult children. Rather than waste money on rent, you can let your adult kids stay in your granny flat as they make arrangements to buy their own homes.

 

A granny flat can also be a source of extra income.

If no one is going to use it, you can rent it out and make extra cash.

If you want a home with a granny for your elderly relatives, here are several things that you should consider:

 

The budget

Just like with any other purchase, you need to start with your budget. How much are you willing to spend on a property with a granny flat? Determining your budget will save you time and energy because you don’t have to look at properties that are out of your range.

Homes for sale with granny flats in Carlsbad

Comfort

The comfort of your elderly relatives should be your major concern when looking for homes with granny flat in Carlsbad. You should know their needs and priorities. In fact, it is best if they are consulted before making a decision.

Ideally, you will want a home that is user-friendly. Some granny flats include grab handles in the bathroom, wider doorways for wheelchairs, or ramps at the entrance.

 

Size

Another thing you should consider when buying a Carlsbad home with granny flat is the size. Granny flats typically consist of one or two rooms and a small living room area.

Prospective buyers are usually advised to choose a smaller flat. The advantage of choosing a smaller flat is that it will be easier to maintain, both for the families as well as the elderly. We know that as we age, it becomes more difficult for us to maintain and clean our houses.

You can visit http://CarlsbadHomesForSaleNow.com/ to know more about the details of the available homes for sale.

I believe taking care of one another is what makes family special. That is why I want to help you make the most of your time together. Let me help you find a living arrangement that suits everybody’s needs.

Reasons why you should choose a home with a guest house

Of all the residential units out there, you may be wondering why you ought to buy a home with a guest house. Look at our list below and know the advantages of living in this type of home.

1.  Keep your family close

A guest house or a granny flat is not only for grandparents. Extended family or adult children can also occupy this space. It’s a great way to keep the family close enough to be involved in one another’s lives. It also offers enough space to maintain peace among family members.

2.  Save on overhead expenses

If you are a grandparent, you can take care of your grandchildren with this set up while your adult children are at work. This is a great way to save money on childcare. It also opens doors in fostering a good relationship with the younger generation.

If you are someone who wants to take care of your parents, allowing them to live nearby makes this possible. It makes monitoring their condition and handling emergencies easier and faster. You will also save on costly adult accommodations.

3.  Work from your home office

If you’re used to going to the office everyday, convert your Carlsbad guest house into a home office. With today’s technology, doing and managing your business online is possible. You can even hire a team of virtual assistants and delegate some of the not-so-important tasks. With this opportunity, you can focus on growing your company without having to leave your property.

4.  Impress your guests

With a guest house on standby, you don’t need to worry about looking for a nice place for your guests.  You can create an extraordinary experience for them. Bond and connect with your guests during their stay. Make sure they have all they need as they retire at the casita.

5. Earn consistently and passively

If you think you can’t earn passively, look out the window and think again. Depending on the space you need, you have the option to have your guest house or the main house rented out. If you love your home and your community, give others the chance to do so as well by accepting tenants.

Regardless of your age, even if you’re in your golden years, you can always start anew. Buy a new house. Start a new project. Launch your own business. This can be made possible by having your very own Carlsbad home with a guest house.

Carlsbad is called the seaside resort city or the village by the sea. It occupies 11 kilometers section of the Pacific Coastline. It’s 87 miles south of Los Angeles and 35 miles north of downtown San Diego, making it the 5th largest city in San Diego County. The population is 109, 333.

If you have kids and are looking for Carlsbad Homes for Sale:

School is not an issue. There are 23 K-12 public schools, 12 private schools and 2 colleges or universities in Carlsbad with an average Homefacts rating of A. Now, that’s the vision that I have as your REALTORⓇ. Whether you’re selling your single story home in Carlsbad or looking to buy one, I want you to have an A-rated experience.

Have you ever heard of the term “Place Attachment”?

Place attachment is said to be the emotional bond between the place and whoever lives in it. This bond usually starts and develops through the experiences we have.

When you buy your single story home in Carlsbad, you will also have the access to what I call the wonderland. Legoland California Resort is here, aquariums, campgrounds, at least four golf courses, three lagoons, museums and my wife’s personal favorite, The Flower Fields right exactly in Carlsbad.

Carlsbad is called seaside resort city or the village by the sea because Carlsbad State and South Carlsbad State beaches are just walking distance away. You can hold summer and all year round activities including swimming, fishing, skin diving, picnicking and surfing.

After exploring the place, you can always go home to your own!

In 2014, 283 building permits were issued in the city of Carlsbad. All permits issued were for Single Family Homes. There are currently 44 homes for sale in Carlsbad, of which 109 are single story homes.

Their 3 bath, 4 bed homes are priced at around $638,000 with approximately  2,019 sq. ft., while their 6 beds, 5 bath single family homes range from $1,200,000 to $1,795,000 with 3,328 to 4,745 sq.ft living space. The median sales price is $630,000.
