Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly:  July-September 2014
The end of the year is approaching.  And now with the third quater behind us, we can take a look back at the Braemar real estate market and see what happened in the world of Piggyback Townhouses and Patio Homes.  Because this is only the third edition of this report, we won't have yearly comparisons.  We will look back to last report (April-June 2014.)
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 … (0 comments)

Braemar Condo Quarterly:  July-September 2014
It is a pleasure to finally see the fall colors popping as I drive through Braemar.  It seems today was actually the first day they felt vivid.  The coming of the fourth quarter of the year means it is time for us to look back and see what has happened in the Braemar condo market.  Braemar condos look like townhouses, but are condo ownership.  They are located on one of four streets in the community:  Caithness, Lord Lovat, Moxleys Ford and Heykens.  If you are buying a townhouse on one of these streets, you are buying … (2 comments)

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.
Right now, it is time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one focuses on properties built by NV Homes for the last two months … (0 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  July-August 2014 (Courtyard Series)
It was great to get out yesterday for Braemar Day and meet some of you that have been following these property reports online.    What a gorgeous day for a community event!  
This report is wrapping up the last two months of summer as it pertains to the Courtyard homes in Braemar.  Of course, if you don't know what a Braemar Courtyard home is, it is one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway have very small yards.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.
During the months of … (0 comments)

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)

What a gorgeous fall season we are enjoying in Braemar.  The leaves have not yet begun to show their colors, but the weather is great.  And next weeekend will be time for Braemar Day.  I hope to see you there with all your real estate questions.
With July and August behind us, it's time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one focuses on the Arista Series homes.  Those are the large, single family homes built by Brookfield Homes.  The floor plans are:  Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury.
There were two sales of Arista Series … (8 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)

Braemar Property Values:  May-June 2014 (Ryan Homes)
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)

Braemar home owners are definitely testing the limits of their A/C units lately.  Temperatures have been in the high 90's, but that is what you would expect in July. And I'm sure there will be more of the same to follow in August.
Right now, it is time for another Braemar Property Value Report for homes in the Heritage Series.  Heritage Series homes, for those who may not be familiar, are the mid-sized single family homes, built by Brookfield Homes, with two car attached garages including the following floor plans:  Exeter, Yardley, Zachery & Waverly.

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 Property Values:  March-April 2014 (Ryan Series)
Ryan Homes built in Braemar have a lot of variety in size and finishes.  There are very modest Ryan Homes in the neighborhood, very much like a Heritage Series home by Brookfield, and some grand ones that easily compete with Brookfield's Arista Series and NV Homes.  With that concept in mind, let's take a look at the resales of Ryan Homes in Braemar for the months of March and April.
There were four Ryan Homes that sold during that time period. Their final sales prices ranged from $425,000 to $545,000.   That's a reflection … (0 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.  
It is time for another Braemar Property Value Report, looking back to the months of March and April 2014.  This particular report focuses on the vaule of Braemar Carriage homes. Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached … (4 comments)

We have passed the official beginning of spring, and yet there is a forecast of some snow for tomorrow in Bristow.  I know Braemar residents are sick of it, all except the kids.  We are all looking forward to more pleasant spring weather.  Of course, buyers and sellers in Bramear weren't hibernating during the first two months of 2014, despite the brutal temps and snow storms.  In this Braemar Property Value Report we'll see what happened with values in the single families built by Ryan Homes in Braemar.
There was one sale in the … (2 comments)
