Another Bristow, VA Short Sale SOLD!
Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long & Foster REALTORS®, Manassas, VA)

Another Bristow, VA Short Sale SOLD!

In November 2014, I was approached to negotiate a Short Sale for a fellow Long & Foster agent.  Being 9632 Tarvie Circle sold for $375,000 on February 17, 2015 as a Short Saleunfamiliar with the process, he thought it best to bring in someone with expertise, so he asked me.  I went along on the listing appointment and gave the same advice I give all my own Short Sale sellers.  Price the home based on comparable sales and condition, NOT on the fact it's a Short Sale.

The list price was determined to be $385,000.  This former model home hit the market at that price on November 6th.  It took a month before a buyer stepped up.  Their offer was submitted on December 7th, and ratified by all parties on December 15th.  The contract package was submitted to the one and only lien holder, Ocwen, for approval on December 22nd.

Amazingly, we had Short Sale Approval on January 6th.  The majority of the time between contract and closing was taken up by the buying side getting their loan in order, having their inspection and so forth.  

On February 17, 2015, this Bristow Short Sale sold for $375,000.  

If you are experiencing financial hardship and need to investigate a Short Sale in the Bristow-Gainesville area, give me a call and let's look at your options.

Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly: October-December 2014
Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long & Foster REALTORS®, Manassas, VA)

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 to another Patio Home.  They have two levels, also offering large bedrooms and a modest side yard.

Piggyback Townhouse in BraemarRight now, let's take a look back at the Piggyback and Patio home resale activity for the fourth quarter of 2014.  We'll start with the Piggyback townhouses.

 

PIGGYBACK

There were no sales of Piggyback townhouses in Braemar in last three months of 2014.  However, there were two that were on the market.  One listed for $250,000 and the other for $274,950.  The fact that there have been townhouses of this style listed since the third quarter of 2014 and none picked up in six to seven months is a definitely concerning.  Hopefully, we'll have a sale to report when we wrap up the first quarter of 2015.

Braemar Piggyback Townhouse Activity, 4th Quarter 2014

PATIO

When it came to Patio home sales, there was only slightly better news.  There was one sale.  It was a home that had listed for $309,900 and sold for $297,500.  Using that $297,500 as a placeholder for the average market value for the fourth quarter of 2014, values were down 4% since the third quarter of 2014

Braemar Patio HomeBraemar Patio Home Activity, 4th Quarter 2014

If you placed your Patio home on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in less than one week, if we use that one sale from December as our guide.  And using that same sale, if you were as fortunate as that seller, you wouldn't have to pay any closing cost assistance to the buyer.

The next Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly will cover the first quarter of 2015 and will be out in April.  Until then, when you are ready to sell your Braemar home, call me for a free market analysis.  No One Knows Braemar Better!

And if you haven't already, please join my Braemar Facebook group.  You can find links to these reports and be involved in all kinds of neighborhood conversations.

Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long & Foster REALTORS®, Manassas, VA)

Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report:  December 2014

The New Year has Bristow real estate agents scrambling, but not for buyers.  We need sellers.  Of course January's numbers won't be out until February, so let's take a look back at December.   We will see how the Kingsbrooke townhouse market looked at the end of 2014.  Comparisons will be made to last month (November 2014) and last year (December 2013.)

This Kingsbrooke towhouse sold for $288,000 in December 2014.6 Listings were Active:  5 Regular Sales, 1 Short Sale

Townhouses For Sale in Kingsbrooke, December 2014

While there were the same number of Kingsbrooke townhouses on the market for sale as December ended as there were in November, the inventory did change somewhat.  The high list price was unchanged, but the low list price was down over 5% compared to last month.  The average list price was down over 2.5% since last month, but up over 2.5% since last year.  Of course, true market value is determined by the sold column.

 

TOWNHOUSES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

1 Listings was Under Contract:  A Regular Sale

Townhouses Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, December 2014

Since there was only one townhouse that went under contract in Kingsbrooke during December, we'll compare that value to the averages from last month and last year.  Average value was down over 7% since last month and up over 3.5% since last year.  The average marketing time was 42% faster than last month and 94% faster than last year.

Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long & Foster REALTORS®, Manassas, VA)

Braemar TownhouseBraemar 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 sales prices ranged from $275,000 to $315,000.  The average of all eight sales gives us our new average market value of $295,313.  That's nearly a 6% increase in average market value since last report and nearly an 11% increase in average market value since last year.

Braemar Townhouse Report: November-December 2014

If you placed your Braemar townhouse on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in an average of just over five weeks.  You could also expect a buyer to ask for an average of 1.5% of the sales price in closing cost assistance.

Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long & Foster REALTORS®, Manassas, VA)

Braemar Property Values:  November-December 2014 (Ryan Homes)

Ryan Home in BraemarThe 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 value.  However, this represents an 11% drop in value since last year.

Braemar Property Values: November-December 2014 (Ryan Homes)

If you placed your Ryan Home on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in an average of about five weeks.  You could also expect a buyer to ask for an average of a little over 1% of the sales price in closing cost assistance.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in March and will detail sales from the first two months of the year.
