Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report:  February 2014

Seems Kingsbrooke is getting a start on the April showers that will bring May flowers.  Yes, it's the end of March and time to look back on the Kingsbrooke townhouse market.  As usual, we will make our comparisons to last month (January 2014) and last year (February 2013.)

4 Listings were Active:  All Regular Sales

Townhouses For Sale in Kingsbrooke, February 2014

 

Unlike this time last year, there were a number of Kingsbrooke townhouses available to buyers when February came to a close.  The high list price was over 7% higher than it had been last month and the low list price was up nearly 2%.  The average list price was up nearly 4% since last month and up 20% since last year.  Don't get too excited.  Market value is found in the sold column where buyers and sellers agree on a price.

 

TOWNHOUSES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

4 Listings were Under Contract:  3 Regular Sales, 1 Short Sale

Regular sales have been dominating the Kingsbrooke townhouse market for the last year.  That's nice to see.  The high list price at time of contract was up 7.5% since last month and high marketing time was 42% shorter.  The low list price at time of contract and low marketing time were unchanged compared to last month.  The average list price at time of contract was up nearly 3.5% since last month and up nearly 1/1,000th of 1% since last year (hardly worth mentioning as an increase.)  The average marketing time was 40% faster than it had been last month, but 12% longer than it had been last year.

 

TOWNHOUSES SOLD IN KINGSBROOKE

5 Listings Sold:  All Regular Sales

Townhouses Sold in Kingsbrooke, February 2014

Townhouse in KingsbrookeHappy to have seen five Kingsbrooke townhouses made it to settlement, as opposed to last month's and last year's one settlement.  So we'll take our average and compare to what happened in the previous reports.  The average sold price was up nearly 2.5% since last month, but down 9% since last year.  The average marketing time was 51% faster than last month, but 900% longer than last year.  These numbers are confusing, but as a full time agent in the area, let me tell you that the demand for Kingsbrooke townhouses is STRONG.  Now is a great time to sell your home.  Prices are marching up as buyer demand continues to be a strong force in our market.

The next Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report will be also be out in April and will detail sales from the month of March.  Until then, if you are thinking of selling your Kingsbrooke home, give me a call for a free market analysis.  I've been a full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent since 2005 and can get you the most for your home in the shortest period of time.

Kingsbrooke Single Family Home Report:  February 2014

Before we bound into spring, it is time to take a look back at the activity of the Kingsbrooke single family home market for February.  As always, we will make our comparisons to last month (January 2014) and last year (February 2013.)  

Single Family Home in Kingsbrooke, Bristow, VA

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES FOR SALE IN KINGSBROOKE

3 Listings were Active:  All Regular Sales

Single Family Homes For Sale in Kingsbrooke, February 2014

This time last year there were no Kingsbrooke single family homes available for sale in the MLS.  And just last month, there was only one active listing.  As such, we'll take this month's average and compare it to last month.  The average list price was up nearly 9% since last month.  Of course, the best idea of true market value can be found in the sold column.

There was one more Kingsbrooke single family home under contract when February drew to a close, as there had been last month.  The high list price at time of contract was unchanged, but high marketing time was 69% faster.  The low list price at time of contract rose over 7% since last month and low marketing time was 90% faster.  The average list price at time of contract was up over 3% since last month and up 10% since last year.  The average marketing time was 78% faster than last month, but 75% longer than last year.

Kingsbrooke scenicWith only one Kingsbrooke single family home going to settlement in February this year and last year, we're going to look at averages across the board.  The average sold price was down over 1.5% since last month, but up over 18% since last year.  The average marketing time was longer in both comparisons, being 1,000% longer than last month and 191% longer than last year.  The market is lacking inventory and as such, now is a great time to sell.  If you are priced right, you could expect to sell fairly quickly.

The next Kingsbrooke Single Family Home Report will be also be out in April and will detail sales from the month of March.  Until then, if you are thinking of selling your Kingsbrooke home, give me a call for a free market analysis.  I've been a full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent since 2005 and can get you the most for your home in the shortest period of time.

Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report: January 2014
Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long & Foster REALTORS®, Gainesville, VA)

Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report:  January 2014

So far the New Year has meant a lot of snow and unseasonably cold weather for Kingsbrooke. Have you wondered what this weather might be doing to the Kingsbrooke townhouse market? You're in luck!  I'm here with facts and figures from the Kingsbrooke townhouse market for January.  We'll make our comparisons to last month (December 2013) and last year (January 2013) to get a see of what has happened.

 

TOWNHOUSES FOR SALES IN KINGSBROOKE

3 Listings were Active:  All Regular Sales

Townhouses For Sale in Kingsbrooke, January 2014

As January came to a close, there were three active townhouse listings in Kingsbrooke.  That's two less than had been active when December ended.  The high list price was down over 1.5% and the low list price remained unchanged compared to last month.  The average list price was down less than 1/10th of 1% compared to last month and down over 5% since last year.  Of course, list prices are suggestions.  You don't know what a seller will accept, or a buyer is willing to pay, until you get to the sold category.

 

TOWNHOUSES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

6 Listings were Under Contract:  5 Regular Sales, 1 Short Sale

 Townhouses Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, January 2014

With so many Kingsbrooke townhouses available for sale in December, it is no surprise that January finds us with six Kingsbrooke townhouses under contract, dominated by regular sales. Last year it seemed foreclosures were evenly mixed with regular sales.  This year, I think we will continue to see a stray Short Sale here and there, but they are not likely to be the majority of the real estate market again anytime soon.  

The high list price at time of contract was up over 10.5%, while high marketing time remained unchanged, compared to last month.  The low list price at time of contract was down 11.5%, but low marketing time was 100% faster than it had been last month.  The average list price at time of contract was up less than 2/10th of 1% since last month, but down 5% compared to last year. The average marketing time was 60% faster than it had been last month, but 104% longer than it had been last year.  Confused?  When that happens, it is best to concentrate on the solds.

 

TOWNHOUSES SOLD IN KINGSBROOKE

1 Listing Sold:  A Regular Sale

Townhouses Sold in Kingsbrooke, January 2014

Only one Kingsbrooke townhouse made it to settlement in January. That being the case, it makes no sense to compare high and low sold prices from reports past.  Let's look at the averages.  The average sold price, taking $259,999 as this month's average (since it's all we've got,) was down nearly 9% since last month, but up over 6% compared to last year. The average marketing time was up a huge percentage since last month (equating to tacking on 56 days) and was 154% longer than it had been last year.  

Overall, it looks as though the prices for Kingsbrooke townhouses are holding steady with small increases here and there.  That's a healthy market for values.  As for demand, there is still a lot of demand of townhouses in Bristow, so don't wait until the snow and cold are gone to list.  Beat your competitors to market for the best chance at getting the highest possible price. 

The next Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report will be also be out in March and will detail sales from the month of February.  Until then, if you are thinking of selling your Kingsbrooke townhouse, give me a call for a free market analysis of your home's specific value in today's market.  I've been a full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent since 2005, and a Short Sale Agent since 2007.  No matter what your equity position, I can get your Kingsbrooke townhouse sold for the highest possible price, in the shortest period of time.

Kingsbrooke Single Family Home Report:  January 2014

A new year means a fresh start.  And now that the first month of 2014 is behind us, we can take a look back at what happened with the Kingsbrooke single family home market in January.  We'll make our comparisons to last month (December 2013) and last year (January 2013.) By the end of this report you should answers to questions like, "Are home values going up or down?" and "Is demand still high?"

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES FOR SALE IN KINGSBROOKE

1 Listing was Active:  A Regular Sale

Single Family Home For Sale in Kingsbrooke, January 2014

 

With only one active listing for Kingsbrooke single family homes at the close of January, it seems silly to compare highs and lows.  Let's take this number and compare it to previous months' averages.  The average list price improved over 1% since last month and 22.5% since last year.  Please bear in mind that list prices are suggestions.  Market value is truely found in the sold column.

 

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

2 Listings were Under Contract:  Both Regular Sales 

Single Family Homes Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, January 2014

There were three fewer Kingsbrooke single family homes under contract compared to last month, but regular sales continued to dominate the market.  The high list price at time of contract was down nearly 3.5% compared to last month and high marketing time ws 219% longer.  The low list price at time of contract was up over 15% since last  month, but the low marketing time was 933% longer.  The average list price at time of contract was nearly 4.5% higher than it had been last month and nearly 8% higher than it had been last year.  The average marketing time was 400% longer than it had been last month and 210% longer than it had been last year.   It appears it is taking longer to sell Kingsbrooke single family homes.

 

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES SOLD IN KINGSBROOKE

4 Listings Sold:  All Regular Sales 

Single Family Homes Sold in Kingsbrooke, January 2014

 

Chris Ann Cleland, Kingsbrooke Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037Four Kingsbrooke single family homes made it to the settlement table in January.  Since there was only one that made it last month and none this time last year, we'll look only to averages to last month.  The average sold price was down just under 10% since last month and the average marketing improved when it was shown to be 31% faster.

 

The next Kingsbrooke Single Family Home Report will be also be out in March and will detail sales from the month of February.  Until then, if you are thinking of selling your Kingsbrooke home, give me a call for a free market analysis.  I've been a full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent since 2005 and a Short Sale Agent since 2007.  No matter what your equity position, I can get you the most for your home in the shortest period of time.

Kingsbrooke Single Family Home Report:  December 2013

Hope everyone in Kingsbrooke was able to enjoy the above freezing temps today.  This winter has been most unusual with its arctic dips.  The Kingsbrooke real estate market is bringing some unlikely news as well.  Let's look back at what happened with Kingsbrooke single family homes in December and compare that to last month (November 2013) and last year (December 2012.)

It may be the first time this has ever happened, but the stats you see for the single family homes that were active at the close of December were the exact same in November.  This isn't going to bode well for marketing time in future reports.  The average list price was up nearly 25% compared to last year, however.  

 

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

5 Listings were Under Contract:  All Regular Sales

Single Family Homes Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, December 2013

 

There was a lot of activity that lead to Kingsbrooke homes going under contract in December.  However, there was only one that was under contract in November, and none last December.  So we'll compare month to month averages.  The average list price at time of contract was down over 7.5% , but the average marketing time was 58% faster.  Seeing so many homes go under contract is great.

With only one Kingsbrooke home making to settlement in December, we'll only be able to compare average values across the board.  The average sold price was up nearly 2% since last month and up 11% since last year.  The average marketing time was 85% faster than it had been last month and 75% faster than it had been last year.  This is good news for Kingsbrooke home owners who may be considering a move.

Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report:  December 2013

Townhouse in Kingsbrooke, Bristow, VA

It is pretty sad when a forty degree day in Kingsbrooke feels warm.  We've definitely had unseasonably cold temps this winter.  Hopefully that's a thing of the past.  Speaking of the past, it's time to take a look back at the last month of 2013 and see how Kingsbrooke townhouse values fared.  We will make comparisons to last month (November 2013) and last year (December 2012.)

TOWNHOUSES FOR SALE IN KINGSBROOKE

5 Listings were Active:  All Regular Sales

Townhouses For Sale in Kingsbrooke, December 2013

There were a lot of Kingsbrooke townhouses on the market when December came to a close.  Perhaps the neighborhood townhouse owners have been hearing my pleas for the last year or so for more inventory.  The high list price saw over an 8.5% since last month and low list price was unchanged in the same time frame.  The average list price was up nearly 2.5% since last month, but down over 1.5% since last year.  It's important to remember that list prices are suggestions.  Real market value is seen only in the sold column.  Everything else we investigate gives us an idea of where the market is heading.

 

TOWNHOUSES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

2 Listings were Under Contract:  Both Regular Sales

Townhouses Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, December 2013

There were only half the number of Kingsbrooke townhouses under contract in December as there had been in November.  The high list price at time of contract was down over 11.5% since last month, while high marketing time was unchanged.  The low list price at time of contract was unchanged month to month, but the low marketing time was 1,120% longer.  The average list price at time of contract was down nearly 6% since last month, but up over 7% since last year.  The average marketing time was 90% longer than it had been last month and 392% longer than it had been last year.

3 Listings Sold:  All Regular Sales

Townhouses Sold in Kingsbrooke, December 2013

Chris Ann Cleland, Kingsbrooke Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037There were three successful sales of Kingsbrooke townhouses in December.  With none to report from the previous month, we'll compare averages to last year.  The average sold price was up 26% since last year and average marketing time was 81% shorter.  That is great news for Kingsbrooke townhouse owners considering a move in the near future.

The next Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report will be also be out in February and will detail sales from the month of January.  Until then, if you are thinking of selling your Kingsbrooke townhouse, give me a call for a free market analysis of your home's specific value in today's market.  I've been a full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent since 2005, and a Short Sale Agent since 2007.  No matter what your equity position, I can get your Kingsbrooke townhouse sold for the highest possible price, in the shortest period of time.
