Finding an Apartment in Carlsbad

How much will it cost? A two-bedroom apartment will go for roughly about $1500 while three bedroom pads go for $1800.

When to rent: It’s best to start your apartment search early in the year (again, the weather's fairly constant and won’t deter folks from moving).While Carlsbad doesn't require as desperate a scramble to get a place as a major city, the housing market is still competitive, so be prepared to go for it and pay your security deposit when you find the right deal.

Carlsbad Neighborhoods

Carlsbad is divided into four quadrants, like an old Scout orienteering map. When it comes down to it, it's really just a question of whether you're looking for history and antiques, resort-style-living and the beach, or just a nice, sunny place to live!

Northwest Quadrant Home to the downtown area, in the Northwest Quadrant of Carlsbad you’ll find clothing stores, restaurants, and small shops located along Carlsbad Village Drive (which the locals still call Elm Street). It’s also home to a biannual street fair and a farmers' market, and a grove of trees preserved from development.Residents of the Northwest Quadrant appreciate the quaint, historic feel of their neighborhood and seek to preserve the old architecture and wilderness.

Northeast Quadrant The Northeast Quadrant is mostly residential, with many planned communities, townhouses, and several apartment buildings

Southeast Quadrant One of the newer parts of Carlsbad, the Southeast Quadrant offers several master-planned communities and a few resorts, including the site of the Acura Classic, a large annual women's tennis competition. Places are full of walking trails and designed to look slightly historic.

Southwest Quadrant Slightly more affordable. Carlsbad's post office, movie theaters, shopping mall, and other local businesses are located here.

Life in Carlsbad

Bring your pet and your boogie board! Here’s why:

• Be prepared to pay a deposit, though.

• Most local entertainment revolves around hiking, biking, golfing, and surfing.

August 2019 Carlsbad Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Carlsbad Rent Report. Carlsbad rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Carlsbad rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Carlsbad rents decline sharply over the past month

Carlsbad rents have declined 0.9% over the past month, but have increased slightly by 1.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Carlsbad stand at $1,916 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,486 for a two-bedroom. Carlsbad's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.1%, as well as the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across the San Diego Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Carlsbad, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the San Diego metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Chula Vista has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 1.8%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,166, while one-bedrooms go for $1,670.
    • Over the past month, Encinitas has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.9%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $2,447, while one-bedrooms go for $1,886.
    • Carlsbad has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the San Diego metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,486; rents decreased 0.9% over the past month but were up 1.7% over the past year.
    • National City has the least expensive rents in the San Diego metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,349; rents were up 1.1% over the past month but remained flat year-over-year.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Carlsbad

    As rents have increased slightly in Carlsbad, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Compared to most large cities across the country, Carlsbad is less affordable for renters.

    • Rents increased slightly in other cities across the state, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 1.1% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.5% in San Jose, 1.2% in San Francisco, and 0.5% in Los Angeles.
    • Carlsbad's median two-bedroom rent of $2,486 is above the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 1.7% increase in Carlsbad.
    • While Carlsbad's rents rose slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), Austin (+3.3%), and Dallas (+2.1%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Carlsbad than most large cities. For example, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,085, where Carlsbad is more than twice that price.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
