Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly:  October-December 2014
Six more weeks of winter doesn't seem to be keeping the Bristow area buyers inside.  They are out and finding a shortage of homes to buy.  Now would be a great time to your Braemar Piggyback or Patio on the market, and beat the rest of Braemar sellers to the spring market.
For clarification, Braemar Piggyback Townhouses are attached side-to-side and back-to-back.  While they do not offer back yards, they offer large bedrooms and a two car garage.  Braemar Patio Homes are also known as quads.  Each is attached at the side, back and corner … (7 comments)

Braemar Condo Quarterly:  October-December 2014
Punxsutawney Phil has spoken and we are expected to have another six weeks of winter.  A lot of Bristow buyers aren't waiting until spring to get out and find a home.  Problem is, a lot of Bristow sellers aren't ready to sell.  For now, let's take a look back at the last quarter of 2014 and see what happened with Braemar condo values.
Two condos sold in the last three months of 2014.  The highest sold price was $247,000.  The lowest $245,000.  Their average gives us our new average market value for a Braemar condo of $246,000. That … (4 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  November-December 2014 (Carriage Series)
The perfect accent to a Braemar Carriage home is a nice dusting of snow.  Nothing makes these homes look more quaint than snow.  So far this winter, we've had three dustings that gives our Braemar Carriage homes that complete that Christmas tree village look.  It was actually December 2004 when my husband and I drove through Braemar, and the quaint factor of the Carriage homes, had us ready to move.
This Braemar Property Value Reports delves into the last two months of real estate activity for Braemar Carriage homes.  Carriage homes are characterized by … (2 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  September-October 2014
It won't be long until we are welcoming in a New Year in Braemar.  Time flies.  And when you spend your time looking back at Braemar sales to help buyers make offers, sellers find list prices, or to prepare this report, it feels like time is going by much faster.
In this Braemar Townhouse Report, we'll go through what happened in September and October and how that shakes out in terms of average property value for Braemar townhouses.
There were seven Braemar townhouses that sold during September and October.  Sold prices ranged from $242,500 to $319,000. … (3 comments)

As this Braemar Property Value Report is being typed, I am sure there are many preparations going in the households in Braemar for Thanksgiving.  The holiday is rapidly approaching.  I should be doing some preparation myself, but I'll get to it later.  I want to get out this information before the holidays to Braemar home owners.
This edition of The Braemar Property Value Report focuses on the activity from September and October with regard to properties built by Ryan Homes.  Unfortunately, this is going to be a quick report.

Braemar Townhouse Report:  July-August 2014
Living in the Braemar townhouses across from the Rob Roy Pool has its advantages.  In the off season of the pool, there is a ton of visitor parking.  And on Braemar Day, the festivities, which are held in that parking area and the surrounding common area, are only a short distance away.
While we are enjoying fall gatherings like Braemar Day, and just days away from welcoming the month of October, it is time to look back at the last two months of summer and see what happened in the Braemar townhouse market.
There were an incredible … (7 comments)

Summer went by in a flash.  Here were are in the beginning of fall.  Any day now, Braemar will be ablaze in fall colors.  Right now, it is time for another Braemar Property Value Report focusing on sales of properties built by Ryan Homes in our neighborhood.  This particular report looks back on the last two months of summer.
During July and August, two Ryan Homes sold.  One for $417,000 and another for $425,000.  The lower priced home did not have a finished basement.  The average of both sales prices gives us our new … (2 comments)

September is nearly over and it is hard to believe.  It feels like school started just last week.  But with October waiting in the wings, it is time to start thinking of Halloween.  Yesterday at Braemar Day, I was handing out trick-or-treat bags for the big day.  If you weren't able to get one for your little Braemar trick-or-treater, just send me an email and I'll drop one off.

Braemar Property Values:  July-August 2014 (Carriage Series)
My favorite property types to report values for in our fair neighborhood of Braemar are the Carriage homes.  Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage.  Rather, if they have a garage at all, it is detached and sits in back of the home.  The floor plans, from smallest to largest, are: Maplewood, Norwood, Oakdale and Parkdale. 
Braemar Carriage homes have the most activity, outside of townhouses, in our market.  In fact, as of the time of this report, I have two Maplewood Carriage homes listed for sale:  12443 Iona Sound Drive for $325,000 and 13790 Tartan … (4 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  May-June 2014
Summer is here in Braemar and I hope that everyone has been enjoying it in one way or another.  Personally, I love sitting out on my front porch at dusk in an Adir chair and just decompressing from a long day.  Watching people walk their dogs, or biking with their kids.  It's a nice thing to see.
This Braemar Townhouse Report is a nice thing to see (spoiler alert.)  It covers the sales of townhouses in Braemar during the months of May and June.  So without further delay, let's get to it.
There were nine townhouses … (2 comments)

July started off pretty quiet, not counting the Fourth of July fireworks that screamed throughout Braemar.  Of course, I am referring to home sales.  The Braemar real estate market and surrounding Bristow and Gainesville seemed to be hitting their summer slump.  Somewhere after the Fourth, all hell broke loose and I haven't had time to even think.  
We'll see what happened in July later on.  This Braemar Property Value Report will focus on resales of houses built by Ryan Homes in Braemar for the months of May and June.

You know that July has arrived in Bristow when it is hazy, hot and humid.  Yuck.  Forget having a good hair day in summer.  If you are hanging out by the Braemar pools, you probably don't care about good hair days.  It's all about staying cool.  
You must be wondering, are Arista Series home values in Braemar hot or cool?  That's the question this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report seeks to answer every two months.  And for clarification for those who may not know what an Arista Series home in Braemar is, they … (4 comments)

Braemar Condo Quarterly:  April-June 2014
The second quarter of 2014 is behind us and we can now take a look back and see what happened with Braemar condo values.  The first quarter left us with a value of $240,000 from one sale.   The second quarter of 20013 left us an average value of $227,750.  So where do we stand right now?
At the close of the second quarter, there were two active Braemar condo listings.  One was priced at $245,000 and the other at $254,800.  Since neither one had been chosen by a buyer, even at the time of this report, … (0 comments)

Hope everyone that wanted to was able to enjoy this grand opening weekend of the Braemar pools.  I know the kids in the neighborhood are super excited about it, and a good number of adults too.  Me, I'm far too pale to be out at the pool during the day.  I enjoy our adult swim nights, but right now, it is time to go through another Braemar Townhouse Report.  Let's see what happened in March and April in terms of Braemar townhouse sales and what that meant to value.
All told, there were eight Braemar townhouses … (7 comments)

In photographing a new Braemar Carriage home listing the other day, I think I finally realized what makes these homes so charming.  It's the white picket fence.  White picket fences surround the daydreams we have of perfect suburban homes.  The covered front porches, on the Carriage homes that have them, don't hurt either.

Braemar was developed by Brookfield Homes.  As such, the majority of homes in the community are built by Brookfield.  However, Brookfield did sell some of their lots to builders like NV Homes and Ryan Homes.  And by popular demand of the neighborhood, I had once again added the NV Home edition of the Braemar Property Value Report.
Unfortunately, there were no sales during the months of January or February of NV Homes in Braemar.  Same was true last report (November & December.)  

For now, I would recommend that owners of NV Homes … (5 comments)

Sounds like we might have one more brush with old man winter before we enter an uninterrupted spring.  The sneak preview of spring in Braemar has been quite nice the past several days.  Despite the miserably cold temperatures and snow storm after snow storm, Braemar buyers were out gobbling up townhouses in the neighborhood.  The lucky Braemar sellers that took advantage of the winter market are glad they did.  In this Braemar Townhouse Report, we'll take a look back at the months of January and February and see what happened with Braemar townhouse values.
For starters, there … (2 comments)
