Braemar Property Value Report: January-February 2018 (Courtyard Series)
What’s a top Braemar Real Estate Agent do on St. Patrick’s Day? Prepare another Braemar Property Value Report of course! Keeping Braemar home owners up to date on property values is what I do…that is, when I am not selling Braemar homes. Tracking Braemar property values is important and it affects me too as a Braemar home owner.
This particular Braemar Property Value Report focuses on the sales of Courtyard homes in the neighborhood in January and February. If you don’t know, Courtyard homes are one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have limited outdoor space. Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.
There were three Braemar Courtyard homes that sold during the first two months of the year. The details of those sales is listed below. And if you are wondering why the first sale is highlighted in pink, that is because it was my listing. It also happened to be the very first sale of the 2018 in Braemar.
Final sold prices of the three sales ranged from $409,900 to $415,000. I’m very pleased that my listing garnered the highest sold price for this report, lowest marketing time (DOM) and lowest closing cost help (seller subsidy.)
When we put these sales into our rolling six and twelve month values, what we find is that the Braemar Courtyard home market is inching forward. The increases in average and median sold prices in the six month values compared to the twelve month values are minor, but they are upward activity nonetheless. Unfortunately, closing cost help and marketing time are increasing as well, and by larger margins.
If you placed your Braemar Courtyard home on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in a little over a month. You could also expect to pay 2%-3% of the sales price in closing cost help.
The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in May. Until then, if you are looking for the highest possible sales price for your Braemar home, give me a call. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
