Braemar Townhouse Report:  November-December 2014
The end of the year is not a time when most people think of buying or selling real estate.  Of course, ask a full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent their thoughts on the holiday real estate market and you may hear about how the "home for the holidays" concepts comes to life.  In this edition of the Braemar Townhouse Report, we will look at the holiday months of November and December and see what the sales meant for average market value.
There were eight Braemar townhouses that sold during the last two months of the year.  The … (7 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  November-December 2014 (Ryan Homes)
The last two months of last year didn't hold a lot of action for single family home sales in Braemar.  In this particular Braemar Property Value Report, we will look back at sales of Ryan Homes.  
There were three Ryan Homes that sold in November and December.  The high sold price was $475,000.  The low sold price was $415,000.  The average of all three sales gives us our new average market value for Ryan Homes of $436,667.  Since there were no Ryan Homes that sold last report, we have no recent comparison of … (0 comments)

The end of January is creeping up quickly.  That means it's time to look back at the last two months of 2014 and see what happened in the Braemar real estate market.  This specific Braemar Property Value Report focuses on single family homes built by NV Homes.
Unfortunately, just like the Arista Series homes by Brookfield homes, there were no sales of NV Homes during the months of November or December.  We will have to wait until next report to see what's happening with values of NV Homes.  Until then, we have the last … (0 comments)

The phone has been ringing this January.  Buyer's Agents are calling me asking if I have any Yardleys coming on the market.  Hopefully the spring market will bring some mid-sized single family homes to the Braemar real estate market.  Right now, in this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report, we'll look back at the last two months of the real estate market as it pertains to Heritage Series homes.  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 … (4 comments)

It's been a pretty mild winter in Bristow so far this year, and we can be thankful for that.  While we've had snow storms, they have not been the kind with snow lingering for days or weeks...unless of course you have a north facing front yard like me.  I'll probably have random lumps of snow on my lawn in April or May.
With the last two months of 2014 behind us, let's take a look back at the Braemar Courtyard home sales and see where our values ended.  Of course, if you don't know what a … (2 comments)

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)

Winter has come to Bristow and we have already seen our first two snows of the season.  The second snow was the best.  It covered the area in blanket of white, and was washed away by rain within four hours.  Seems we are expecting more snow in the next couple days as well.  
As we settle in to 2015, we can take a look back at the Braemar real estate market and see what happened the last two months of 2014.  This particular Braemar Property Value Report focuses on the Arista Series homes, … (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.

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 … (4 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)

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.

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)
