Braemar Property Values:  January-February 2015 (Heritage Series)
Having one Yardley model on the market in Braemar at the beginning of the year, I've been paying particular attention to Heritage Series homes that come on the market.  Somewhere around the beginning of March, spring hit the sellers of these homes right in the gut and these homes were popping up everywhere.  For now, let's take a look back at the first two months of the year in this Braemar Property Value Report and see what happened to Heritage Series home values.  Heritage Series homes, for those who may not be familiar, are the mid-sized … (5 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  January-February 2015 (Courtyard Series)
While we've experienced some warming temperatures in Bristow with the onset of spring, we had a set back to the thirties today.  It reminds us of the winter not so far behind us.  This Braemar Property Value Report will focus on sales in the winter months of January and February in the Courtyard Series.  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 and have extremely small outdoor spaces.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.

Braemar Property Values:  January-February 2015 (Carriage Series)
To say that the spring real estate market hit way earlier than the actual spring season is an understatement.  When we hit January, it seemed the doors blew off the Braemar real estate market.  And the sellers that got out during the first two months of the year benefited.  In the edition of the Braemar Property Value Report we'll take a look at the first two months of the year with respect to Carriage homes. Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage.  Rather, if they have a garage at all, it … (2 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  January-February 2015 (Arista Series)
It's beginning to feel like spring finally in Braemar.  After the winter we had, with the brutal temperatures and snow, I know we are all enjoying this time of year.  Let's take one last look back at winter, the first two months of the year to be exact, and see how Arista Series fared in this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report.  Arista Series homes include the Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury models by Brookfield Homes.  These are the largest homes built by Brookfield in Braemar.
There were two Canterburys that sold.  They both boasted five bedrooms, four … (0 comments)

Why Are There So Many People Coming to YOUR Braemar Listing?
This was a question I was asked this afternoon.  I was dropping off an open house flag to one of my mentees, Cathleen Connolly , who was gracious enough to hold my 10153 Pale Rose Loop listing in Braemar open today.  Having completed two previous client appointments, the last one in Braemar, I swung by with the sign.  The open house had been going for one hour.  Nothing but directional signs leading people in.  No open rider atop the sign, no balloons, no flag.  Why?  I forgot to leave them in the listing … (15 comments)

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 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 … (8 comments)

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)
