Braemar Townhouse Report: May-June 2012
Having seen a lot of activity with my own Braemar townhouse listings recently, I know that this Braemar Townhouse Report is going to be one with good news. When reporting sales activity for Braemar townhouses we’ll divide sales into two categories: Townhouses with No Garage and Garage Townhouses.
To start, Townhouses with No Garage saw eight sales in the last two months. The highest sales price was $260,000. The lowest sales price was $210,000. The average of all eight sales gives us our new average market value for Townhouses with No Garage of $228,357. That’s down just over 1.5% since last report, but up nearly 13% since last year.
If you placed your Braemar Townhouse with No Garage on the market, priced to current market conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in an average of just under two weeks. You could also expect a buyer to ask for an average of just under 2% of the sales price in closing cost assistance.
Garage Townhouses saw four sales in the last two months. The high sales price was $275,000. The low sales price was $265,000. The average of all four sales gives us our new average market value for Garage Townhouses of $269,325. That’s slightly more than a 1% increase since last report and well over a 20% increase since last year.
If you placed your Braemar Garage Townhouse on the market, priced to current market conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in under two weeks. You could expect a buyer to ask for an average of over 1.5% of the sales price in closing cost assistance.
