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.
There were two Ryan Homes that … (5 comments)

It's time for another Braemar Property Value Report, focusing on homes in the Carriage Series.  Before we get started, let's clarify was defines a Braemar Carriage home.  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.

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)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  March-April 2014
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 Property Values:  January-February 2014 (NV Homes)
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)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  January-February 2014
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)

While out and about today, I heard someone say that Bristow is expecting another one to two feet of snow next week.  In my mind I envisioned a Melissa McCarthy Identity Thief style punch to the throat of the person telling me this.  Please, no more snow.  I think all of us are ready for spring.  The good news is that cold temps and snow storms didn't keep Braemar buyers and sellers from doing business.  
In this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report, we will look back at the first two months … (4 comments)

While it is only a matter of days before we are officially in the spring season, we continue to be pounded by snow in Braemar.  And on trash and recycle days!  As if we didn't have a hard enough time cramming all of our recycle from one week into the bin, the pick up gets rescheduled or skipped when it snows on recycle day.  It's a bummer.
We're not here to talk about the weather, or how small our recycling bins feel.  The purpose of the Braemar Property Value Report is to detail sales of … (5 comments)

Another Bristow Townhouse Under Contract in a Matter of Days!
With the end of 2013, I did something just for the sake of knowing how I perform as a Listing Agent.  I ran stats for the listings I had in 2013.  I was surprised, in a good way, by what I found.  On average, my listings sold for 99.96% of their original list price.  That tells me I am pricing homes right.  If I give you a number, it's not pulled out of thin air, but pulled from a working market knowledge.  I also found that my Sellers got an average … (3 comments)
