Braemar Property Value Report: November-December 2020 (Ryan Homes)

Braemar Property Value Report: November-December 2020 (Ryan Homes)

The end of a very long week has arrived. This day alone has felt like three days with the amount of phone calls I am getting on a Gainesville single family home listing that hit the market this morning. Buyer demand is beyond belief. We’ll talk about it in this installment of the Braemar Property Value Report, focusing on sales activity of properties built by Ryan Homes in our neighborhood.

This report looks back to November and December for sales activity. There was no Ryan Home that sold in these months because none where on the market. Had they been, they would have been bowled over by buyers. Despite the lack of activity, however, we have updated six and twelve month data points for the Ryan Homes sales activity in 2020. It looks like this:

Starting with the sold price column, we see both the six month average and six month median values are higher than the twelve month average and median values. This means that in the most recent sales, Ryan Homes were still pushing up in value.

The seller subsidy column is where we find out how much closing cost help buyers were able to negotiate from their Ryan Home sellers. The six month average seller subsidy is well below the twelve month average seller subsidy. Meanwhile, the six month median is at zero from $5,000 at the twelve month median mark. What that zero six month median means is that more than half of Ryan Home sellers in the last six months have given nothing in closing cost help. That’s what I am seeing across the board as more buyers compete in multiple offer situations in Braemar.

Days on market is stable down the line. The six month average marketing time is only one day shorter than the already short twelve month average marketing time. The six month median and twelve month median marketing times are identical.

If you placed your Ryan Home on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in less than one week. You could also expect to pay nothing in closing cost help, given the way the market is gobbling up houses.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in March. Until then, when the time comes to sell your Braemar home, call me for a free market analysis. My sellers do better than they expect with my professional marketing and unparalleled neighborhood knowledge. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
