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.

There were no sales … (4 comments)

If you stepped outside today bundled up for the cold that we Bristow residents had been experiencing lately, you were probably sweating by the time you got to the car.  It was a balmy seventy degrees and sunny.  Nice change of pace.
Speaking of change, it looks like our overall Bristow real estate market is changing.  In this edition of The Braemar Property Value Report we will look at the sales of NV Homes in Braemar during the months of September and October.  
There were five NV Homes that sold during September and October.  Each … (2 comments)

Residents of Braemar are bracing for a long, cold winter.  Seems those artic temps started much sooner than typical for the area.  But what are they to expect of the Braemar real estate market?  We can only glean information by looking at the recent activity.  In this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report we'll look back at the months of September and October to see what happened with sales 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 … (3 comments)

Predictions for the first snow fall of the season in Bristow are being bantered about.  Weather is one of the hardest things to predict more than a few days in advance.  There are so many moving parts that affect the outcome.  Real estate isn't quite as bad.  You can reasonably look to the recent past, look at what's in front of you now and look forward to say what conditions will be like in the coming months.  Of course, just like the weather, situations change, inventory for instance, or buyer demand, and that's when … (6 comments)

The holiday season seems to be sneaking up on me.  Seems like just yesterday I was lamenting the end of summer.  It is easy to get lost in time when you are a Braemar real estate agent though.  Running comps for listings and market reports like these, I am looking back to stats a lot.  
This particular Braemar Property Value Report will cover the months of September and October, focusing on sales of Braemar Carriage homes.  Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage.  Rather, if they have a garage at … (6 comments)

It would not surprise me to find out that we were experiencing the coldest November in my lifetime, here in Bristow, VA.  I was stunned that it was in the mid-twenties last night.  Perhaps this means we're in for another polar vortex winter.  Personally, I'd rather see more snow than temperatures getting in the teens.  Alas, I have no control.  My Mom always said, "Wish in one hand and spit in the other...see which one gets full first."
While I do list and sell Braemar homes, I have zero control of the overall market … (4 comments)

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)

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.

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)

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)
