Braemar Property Value Report: January-February 2016 (Arista Series)

Braemar Property Value Report:  January-February 2016 (Arista Series)

Spring has definitely hit the Braemar real estate market, but you may not know it after reading this Braemar Property Value Report for Arista Series homes in our neighborhood.  This Canterbury goes to settlement on April 7, 2016 .Before we get started, Arista Series homes are the large single family homes built by Brookfield Homes.  The floor plans are:  Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury.

So you know what an Arista Series home in Braemar is, so what happened in January and February.  (Cue the crickets.)  Nothing.  Just like last report, not one Arista Series home sold.  However, since our market has been fairly stable in terms of value for the last year, it is safe to assume when we do see more sales in the upcoming Braemar Property Value Reports for homes in the Arista Series, it won’t be far off from what we saw last January and February.

Braemar Property Value Report:  January-February 2016 (Arista Series)

Just because there were no sales in the last four months of other Allisters, Buckinghams or Canterburys doesn’t mean a local agent like myself can’t give you a good idea of what your home is worth.  We can always pull sales of similar sized homes in the area and figure out where the market value would be.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in May and will focus on sales from Chris Ann Cleland, Bristow Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037March and April.  I know for sure that next report, I will have at least one sale to report.  Until then, when you are ready to sell your Braemar home, give me a call.  No One Knows Braemar Better!

Entry Stairs--9713 Lennice

Dining Room--9713 Lennice

Living Room--9713 Lennice

Step into the two story foyer and you are in between the formal dining room on the right and the formal living room on the left.  Decorative pillars give them an air of sophistication and marks their outermost boundary.  If you stand near those pillars, you can see every room on the main floor.

Study--9713 Lennice

To the right, a study behind French doors is a perfect home office.  The only thing to distract you is the wooded view from your window.  Main level powder room is just around the corner.

Family Room--9713 Lennice

Straight ahead is the two story family room with a floor to ceiling Palladian window.  It has the same wooded views as the study.  In here you also have a gas fireplace and built-in bookshelves.

While there is a hardwood staircase that greets you in the foyer, there is another hardwood staircase that comes down into the back of the home between the family room and kitchen.

Kitchen --9713 Lennice

The kitchen is huge, with plenty of cherry cabinet space and granite counters.  The island even allows for bar seating.  Of course, there is also a breakfast area here.  Don’t worry about the size of your table.  The space is quite large.

Butlers Pantry--9713 Lennice

Of course, loop around back toward the foyer and you pass a Butler’s pantry–the perfect transition between dining and cooking space.

Master Suite--9713 Lennice

Master Bath Tub--9713 Lennice

Master Bath Sinks--9713 Lennice

The Master suite sits behind double doors and is impressive in size.  A tray ceiling gives the room architectural interest.  Attached luxury bathroom has jetted tub, separate shower and dual sinks/vanity.

BR 2--9713 Lennice

BR 3--9713 Lennice

Second Bath--9713 Lennice

The second and third bedrooms sit at the opposite end of the hall, to the left and right of the second full bathroom.  This bathroom also has dual sinks/vanity.  And whoever gets the fourth bedroom is lucky enough to have their own attached full bathroom.

BR 4--9713 Lennice

The basement is completely finished with a fifth bedroom and full bathroom, two finished rooms and a large recreation area with a wet bar.  The basement has a walk out exit.

Rec Room--9713 Lennice

Outside, you can enjoy the wooded view from your wood deck, accessed just off the kitchen/breakfast area.  Also on the main level is your mud room/laundry room.

Deck--9713 Lennice

Wooded View--9713 Lennice

Like all homes in the Highland Village section of Braemar, this home has basic cable and internet service with RCN as part of the HOA dues.  You’ll also have access the many Braemar amenities, which includes multiple pools, tennis courts, basketball courts and playgrounds.

Dunbarton Duplex Values: January-February 2016

Dunbarton Duplex Values:  January-February 2016

When I began my real estate career in 2005, I also decided to start compiling bi-monthly property value reports for my neighborhood of Braemar.  Over the years, I Ayres Model Duplex in Dunbartonhave added more reports so home owners of the various home types have an idea of what current property values are doing.  For 2016, I am adding property value reports for Dunbarton.  This is the first Dunbarton Duplex Value Report and will focus on sales of attached single family homes in Braemar’s Dunbarton for the first two months of the year.

There was only one duplex that sold in Dunbarton during the months of January and February.  It was an Ayres model that listed for $300,000 and sold for $305,000.  It had been listed prior to its foreclosure and was hard to tour as there were items all over the floors.  Once it went to foreclosure, it didn’t last long.  The sold price of $305,000 represents a decrease from the average market value of 4.5% since November and December.  However, since there were no sales of Dunbarton duplexes in the first two months of 2015, we have no year to year comparison.

Dunbarton Duplex Values:  January-February 2016

If you placed your Dunbarton duplex on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in about a week and a half.  You may not even have to pay closing cost help to the buyer.  This sale didn’t.

The next Dunbarton Duplex Report will be out in May and will focus on sales activity for March and April.  Until then, when you are ready to sell your Dunbarton Chris Ann Cleland, Bristow Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037duplex, give me a call for a free market analysis of your specific home’s value.  We can also go over my unique marketing plan that allows me to sell millions in Bristow real estate year after year.
