2017 Year-End Market Report for Cardiff by the Sea CA Here is a year-end look at the 2017 housing market for single family homes in Cardiff by the Sea (a.k.a. Cardiff), just south of Encinitas. Cardiff offers a mix of single family detached homes, from bungalows to multi-million dollar ocean-view homes in the Composer and Walking Districts near the down town area, in a wide range of styles! The town is small so inventory of available single family homes is often limited, and prices can vary significantly depending on location and views. Here are some insights into the Cardiff lifestyle in this short slideshow:  2017 Housing Market for Cardiff:76 detached single family homes sold in 2017, down by 7% from 2016 sales (82).  The average sales price for the 2016 was $1,399,412, a decrease of...

The Cardiff Kook Celebrates Christmas 2017 The Cardiff Kook has gained some notoriety in the area since the surfing statue was first installed in Cardiff 10 years ago. The notoriety comes from the fact that it is often decorated to fit with the current holiday or in other ways – a treat for many, but something that often irritates others, including those who don’t like the statue to begin with! Or the name it's been unofficially given.  I like this Christmas offering, but I have to say my favorite, which garnered a LOT of attention, was when the Cardiff Kook celebrated the Royal Wedding. Another favorite and elaborate setting was with a pterodactyl swooping down on the statue.  The Cardiff Kook even has his own website that captures all the costuming since the beginning. Check it out to...

The 10th Annual Cardiff Kringle Mingle is December 3, 2017  There are lots of holiday events in the Carlsbad area (e.g., The Carlsbad Village Night of Lights on December 2nd, the Annual Tree Lighting in Carlsbad Village December 3rd).  Bbut if you are interested in something else for Sunday afternoon on December 3rd , another holiday favorite is the annual Cardiff Kringle Mingle.

Halloween House by the Sea  I took a photo of this very cool looking ocean-view house in Cardiff all decked out for Halloween a few years ago. The owner was standing on the deck and of course I asked permission to take a photo, and asked if I could share it. That was fine, she said, as long as she was not in it! So off she went. I haven't been by this year to see if they re still decorating or not.
