Braemar Property Values:  March-April 2015 (Courtyard Series)
While we've been enjoying spring weather lately in Braemar, the overcast skies and drizzly rain made today a bit cooler.  Driving in the inclement weather was down right unpleasant on the highway, but thankfully, doing the majority of my work in Braemar, I rarely have to hit the highways.
Let's take a look back at the Braemar real estate market, specifically, as it pertains to Courtyard homes.  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 … (7 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  March-April 2015 (Carriage Series)
Braemar is in bloom.  The neighborhood is awash in the colors of spring.  It's no wonder home owners love to sell this time of year.  This is the peak of curb appeal.  Speaking of curb appeal, let's take real estate.
This Braeamar Property Value Report will cover the sales of Braemar Carriage homes in the months of March and April.    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. 
There … (4 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  March-April 2015 (Arista Series)
When we first entered spring, I don't know about you, but I thought I might have lost a couple of trees and some flowers in my garden due to the brutal winter temps.  There were some late bloomers, but they all made it and are now coming out in vibrant color.  It's so nice to see Braemar in bloom.
Right now, we're going to look back to the start of the spring market in the Arista Series, which are the larger single family homes built by Brookfield Homes and includes the Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury models.  This report … (8 comments)

Braemar Reflection Series Quarterly:  January-March 2015
In an effort to include property value updates for ALL types of Braemar homes, I am adding this Reflection Series report which will be compiled quarterly.  Reflection Series homes in Braemar are easy to locate and identify.  They are located off of Tarvie Circle and are the semi-detached single family homes that are attached at the garage only.  There were two floor plans offered byBrookfield Homes:  Annan and Bromley.  
This first edition of the Braemar Reflection Series Quarterly, there is only one sale to report.  It was a Short Sale of the former builder's model.  It … (5 comments)

Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly:  January-March 2015
The first quarter of 2015 is behind us and it was extremely busy.  Of course, this report may not reflect that because we can only sell what is on the market.  Many Braemar sellers wait until spring to put their homes on the market.  
Let's take a look at what happened in the first three months of the year with Braemar Piggyback and Patio homes.  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 … (8 comments)

Braemar Condo Quarterly:  January-March 2015
The first quarter of 2015 started with a bang and hasn't slowed down in the Bristow real estate market.  Buyer demand has been incredible.  Of course, we can only sell the homes that come on the market, and sometimes lack of inventory is a problem.  Let's see what happened with Braemar condos during the first quarter of the year.
Just like the first quarter of last year, there was only one Braemar condo that sold.  For some reason, Braemar sellers seem to like to wait until spring, though buyers were out in full force in January.  The sold … (2 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  January-February 2015
Having a Braemar townhouse listing during the snow storms, I know how glad all Braemar townhouse owners must be that the snow is behind us.  There's nothing quite like spending thirty minutes digging out your car from a common area space and coming back to see someone else enjoying the clear space.  Such is life in the winter in a townhouse.
Right now it is time for another Braemar Townhouse Report, looking back at sales during the first two months of year.  There were only four sales of Braemar townhouses in January and February, which actually … (4 comments)

It's spring break and I hope you are doing something fun with your family.  Me?  I'm doing what I'm always doing, keeping an eye on the Braemar, and overall Bristow, real estate market to be the best real estate agent I can be for my clients.  That also means compiling market reports.  This particular Braemar Property Value Report covers the first two months of 2015 and resales of homes in Braemar built by Ryan Homes.

Braemar Property Values:  January-February 2015 (NV Homes)
Even though not much is blooming, after the harsh winter we had, just having temps in the mid-50's and low 60's feels like spring in Braemar.  Right now, I'm keeping a watchful eye on a new tree I had planted at the end of fall last year.  It's either a late bloomer or the winter killed it.  Time will tell.
Right now, let's take a look back at resales of NV Homes in Braemar for the first two months of the year in this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report.

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 … (7 comments)

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.

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 … (3 comments)

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 … (16 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)

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)
