I used to live in Carmel Valley. The commute in and out of 92130 is very easy thanks to route 56. It relieves a lot of the northern congestion on the evening rush hour traffic. The mornings are generally not too bad. Leave around or before 6:30 A.M. and you'll be fine.
FYI, I noticed the orignial listing reflecting $758,900 has been cancelled, and that there is a new listing for the same property showing a price range of $706,775 - $746,876.
Meantime, if you would find it helpful, many of my clients realize a lot of value in the personalized search pages I create for them. Feel free to request one.
Southbound in the morning 6-11AM is really slow. It will take you 45 minutes to travel 20 miles either direction these times of day. If you avoid these times you can cut that time in half.
