Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report:  May 2014

Summer is here and spring is a memory.  Kids are splashing in the Kingsbrooke community pool and the Sea Lions are competing against other neighborhood teams.  In these last days of June, let's take a look back at the Kingsbrooke townhouse market and see what happened to values in May.  We will make comparisons to last month (April 2014) and last year (May 2013.)

TOWNHOUSES FOR SALE IN KINGSBROOKE

1 Listing was Active:  A Regular Sale

Townhouses For Sale in Kingsbrooke, May 2014

 

There was only one active listing at the end of May, same as it was at the end of April.  With that in mind, we'll take our one value and compare to averages.  The average list price was up nearly 7.5% since last month and up nearly 7.5% since last year.   Lack of active inventory means now would be a good time to sell.  As for the values, we get the best idea of market value from the SOLD column.

 

TOWNHOUSES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

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

Townhouses Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, May 2014

 

There were half the number of Kingsbrooke townhouses under contract last month, as there had been in April.  The high list price at time of contract was down nearly 9.5%, but the high marketing time was 74% shorter.  Definitely a good news, bad news thing happening there.  The low list price at time of contract and low marketing time were unchanged month to month.  The average list price at time of contract was down over 4.5% since last month and down over 5.5% since last year.  The average marketing time was 50% faster since last month and 67% faster since last year.  Again with the good news, bad news.

 

TOWNHOUSES SOLD IN KINGSBROOKE

8 Listings Sold:  7 Regular Sales, 1 Foreclosure

Townhouses Sold in Kingsbrooke, May 2014

 

With eight Kingsbrooke townhouses selling, compared to one last month and two last year, it seeems that flood gates opened in May.  Let's look across the averages.  The average sold price was nearly 4.5% Make sure to enjoy the Kingsbrooke Community Pool this summer.higher than it had been last month and was 10.5% higher than last year's.  The average marketing time was 2,500% longer than it was last month, which equates from going to 0 to 25 days.  The average marketing time was 108% longer than it had been last year.

Kingsbrooke Single Family Home Report: May 2014

Time always seems to accerlerate when it comes to summer.  Here we are at the end of June and there are two more months of pool time and summer vacation in Kingsbrooke.  Before we get too far ahead, let's take a look back at May and see what happened in the Kingsbrooke single family home market.  We will make comparisons to last month (April 2014) and last year (May 2013.)

Kingsbrooke Single Family Home

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES FOR SALE IN KINGSBROOKE

8 Listings were Active:  6 Regular Sales, 2 Short Sales

Single Family Homes For Sale in Kingsbrooke, May 2014

 

Since there were no active listings in May 2013, we will have only comparisons to last month for the available inventory in Kingsbrooke single family homes for May 2014.  Short Sales are continuing to be a factor in the neighborhood, but are in the minority of homes listed.  For buyers that need certainty, this is a very good thing.  The high list price was down over 2% since last month, but the low price was unchanged.  The average list price was down 3% since last month.  I wouldn't proclaim Kingsbrooke home values are dropping.  List prices are suggestions.  We really only know true market value from the SOLD column.

 

 

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

3 Listings were Under Contract:  All Regular Sales

Kingsbrooke Median LandscapingSingle Family Homes Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, May 2014

 

There were fewer homes in Kingsbrooke under contract this past May as there had been last month and last year by half or more.  The high list price at time of contract was over 4.5% less than it had been last month, but high marketing time was 85% faster.  The low list price at time of contract was up over 7.5% since last month, but the low marketing time had taken 300% longer.  That equates to 3 days.  Don't panic.  The average list price at time of contract was up 1/2 of 1% since last month and up over 1% since last year.  The average marketing time was 62% faster than it had been last month and was 29% faster compared to last year.  These are good trends in the averages.

 

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES SOLD IN KINGSBROOKE

7 Listings Sold:  6 Regular Sales, 1 Short Sale

Single Family Homes Sold in Kingsbrooke, May 2014

 

While the number of Kingsbrooke homes under contracts was anemic compared to last month and last year, the sold column is exactly the opposite.  Looking back one month and one year the number of solds has doubled and tripled, respectively.  The high sold price was over 11.5% more than it had been last month.  That's good news, but the high marketing time was 1,771% longer.  That's a difference of 124 Get out there and enjoy the Kingsbrooke Community Pool!more days on the market at most.  The low sold price was nearly 6% lower than it had been last month, but the low marketing time was 300% shorter.  Basically, the low marketing time was non-existent from 3 days.  No worries there.  The average sold price was up over 3.5% since last month and up nearly 6% since last year.  The average marketing time was 400% longer compared to last month and 1,400% longer compared to last year.  Still, 30 days to sell a home is not unreasonable.

The next Kingsbrooke Single Family Home Report will be also be out in July and will detail sales from the month of June.  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.

Another Bristow Single Family Home Sold!
Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long & Foster REALTORS®, Gainesville, VA)

Another Bristow Single Family Home Sold!

On April 25th (2014) I listed a great single family home at 13501 Dodsworth Lane in Kingsbrooke.  It had recently undergone recommended updates from our first appointment.  The hardwood floors had been refinished, carpet replaced, home repainted and kitchen updated with new appliances and granite countertops.  Even the deck had been given a fresh finish.  

During our initial consultation, before updates, I had thought $399,000 was the most they 13501 Dodsworth Drive sold for $420,000 on June 5, 2014could get for the home.  While it was four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms with a HUGE family room, it was only two finished levels.  The unfinished basement had no exit.  

After seeing the improvements, we listed for $424,900.  Within two days the Sellers had two offers.  One had a home sale contingency, but offered a higher net sales price.  So the Sellers made a very smart move and made a counter offer to the offer without a home sale contingency.  The counter was accepted and the home went under contract.

On June 5th, this Kingsbrooke home sold for $420,000.  The Sellers also agreed to a closing cost credit of $6,000 to the Buyers.  

If you have a Kingsbrooke single family home you would like to sell, call me for a free market analysis of your home's worth.  Or if you just want to track your property values in the Kingsbrooke neighborhood, or have a place to connect with other Kingsbrooke neighbors, join my Kingsbrooke Faceboook Group.

Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report:  April 2014

The pool is open and I bet that is where a lot of Kingsbrooke residents spent the day.  I spent it showing Kingsbrooke and other Bristow homes to buyers.  It's been a very hot market.  So let's see what that meant to the Kingsbrooke townhouse market in April.  We will make comparisons to last month (March 2014) and last year (April 2013.)

Townhouse in KingsbrookeTOWNHOUSES FOR SALE IN KINGSBROOKE

1 Listing was Active:  A Regular Sale

Townhouses For Sale in Kingsbrooke, April 2014

Since only one Kingsbrooke townhouse was left available to buyers at the end of April, we'll just look across at our average list prices to compare.  The average list price was down 8/10th of 1% since last month and down 4/10th of 1% since last year.  List prices are suggestions, so remember the best idea of market value comes from the sold column.

TOWNHOUSES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

9 Listings were Under Contract:  7 Regular Sales, 1 Foreclosure, 1 Short Sale

Townhouses Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, April 2014

 

Kingsbrooke TownhouseWow!  There were nearly double the number of Kingsbrooke townhouses under contract in April as there had been in March.  The high list price at time of contract, high marketing time, low list price at time of contract and low marketing time were all unchanged compared to last month.  The average list price at time of contract was up 7/100th of 1% since last month and up over 7% since last year.  The average marketing time was 21% faster than it had been last month, but 83% longer than it had been last year.  Right now, it looks like you can expect a contract on a well priced Kingsbrooke townhouse in about three weeks.

 

TOWNHOUSES SOLD IN KINGSBROOKE

1 Listing Sold:  A Regular Sale

Townhouses Sold in Kingsbrooke

Only one Kingsbrooke townhouse made it to settlement in April.  Same as last year.  so let's Kingsbrookecompare averages only.  The average sold price was down over 5.5% since last month and down nealry 2% since last year.  The average marketing time was non-existent in April.  That's compared to 70 days average last month and 26 days average last month.  Given demand, I think property values will continue to increase.

The next Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report will be also be out in June and will detail sales from the month of May.  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: April 2014

May is not coming to a close before I tell you what has happened in the Kingsbrooke single family home market.  I have personally shown several listings in the neighborhood and actually listed and got one under contract, which will show up as a sale for May's report.  For now, let's look back at April and compare to last month (March 2014) and last year (April 2013.)

Single Family Home in Kingsbrooke

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES FOR SALE IN KINGSBROOKE

5 Listings were Active:  3 Regular Sales, 2 Short Sales

Single Family Homes For Sale in Kingsbrooke, April 2014

There were a lot of single family homes on the market in Kingsbrooke, compared to March.  The high list price was over 8.5% down since last month and so was the low list price--by over 22%.  The average list price was down slightly over 11% since last month and only down 1.5% since last year.  Since list prices are suggestions, let's not panic.  We will see what is really happening in the market when we get to the sold column.

SINGLE FAMILY HOMES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

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

Single Family Homes Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, April 2014

With exactly the same number of Kingsbrooke single family homes under contract in April as there were in March, let's see how things changed.  The high list price at time of contract went up over 11.5% since last month and high marketing time was unchanged.  The low list price at time of contract was down nearly 5% since last month, and high marketing time gained 2 days from 0to 2.  The average list price at time of contract was 3.1% higher since last month and over 1.5% higher compared to last year.  The average marketing time was 4% faster than last month, but 767% longer than last year.  That big change is from 3 days last year to 26 this year. Still a month to get under contract isn't bad.

4 Listings Sold:  All Regular Sales

Single Family Homes Sold in Kingsbrooke, April 2014

Kingsbrooke Community Entrance off of Linton Hall RoadAnything is an improvement since March when no Kingsbrooke single family homes went to settlement.  However, due to that fact, we have no month to month comparison.  So we'll only be comparing year to year here. The average sold price was nearly 11% higher than it was this time last year.  The average marketing time was 14% shorter.  This is good news.

It is time for another Kingsbrooke Townhouse Report.  So before April is over, let's look back at March.  We'll make comparisons to last month (February 2014) and last year (March 2013.)

 

TOWNHOUSES FOR SALE IN KINGSBROOKE

4 Listings were Active:  3 Regular Sales, 1 Foreclosure

Townhouses For Sale in Kingsbrooke, March 2014

 

There were exactly the same number of townhouses available to Bristow buyers when March came to a close as there were in February.  The high list price was down nearly 5% compared to last month and the low list price was unchanged.  The average list price was down over 2.5% since last month, but up over 6% compared to last year.  Of course, list prices are suggestions and the best idea of market values can be found in the sold column.

 

TOWNHOUSES UNDER CONTRACT IN KINGSBROOKE

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

Townhouses Under Contract in Kingsbrooke, March 2014

 

There was one more Kingsbrooke townhouse under contract when March came to a close as there had been the month previous.  The high list price at time of contract was down nearly 2% and high marketing time 15% longer (not a good combination) compared to last month.  The low list price at time of conract and low marketing were unchanged month to month.  The average list price at time of contract was up over 2% compared to last month, but down 8/10th of 1% compared to last year.  The average marketing time was unchanged month to month, but 8% longer than it had been last year.

 

TOWNHOUSES SOLD IN KINGSBROOKE

3 Listings Sold:  All Regular Sales

Townhouses Sold in Kingsbrooke, March 2014

With three Kingsbrooke townhouses making it to settlement in March, the high sold price was up 10.5% since last month, but the high marketing time was 13% longer.  The low sold price was up Kingsbrooke Community Entrance off of LInton Hall Road in Bristow, VA2% since last month and the low marketing time improved by 60%.  The average sold price was up nearly 7.5% month to month and up over 5.5% year to year.  The average marketing time was longer in both cases, 133% longer compared to last month and 180% longer compared to last year.  Seems while values are going up, the time it takes to find a buyer is increasing.

Kingsbrooke Single Family Home Report:  March 2014

Before we close out April, it is time to take a look back at the Kingsbrooke single family home market for March.  As always, we'll make comparisons to last month (February 2014) and last year (March 2013.)

Kingsbrooke Single Family Home in Bristow, VA
