Braemar Property Value Report: March-April 2022 (Ryan Homes)

You can almost feel the excitement in the air. A long weekend is just around the corner and summer will be unofficially underway. Is the excitement still in the air in the Braemar real estate market? In this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report we look back at what happened with the houses built by Ryan Homes in our neighborhood for the months of March and April. We will also get a chance to see the updated six and twelve month market markers. Let’s get right to it.

There were only two Ryan homes that sold during our current reporting period. There wasn’t a huge gap in sold price with one selling at $690,000 and the other selling at $710,000. Details of both sales are listed below:

The happiest things for would-be Ryan home sellers to see is that seller subsidy (closing cost help to buyers) is at zero in both and days on market is a week or less in both.

Taking these sales and combining them with Ryan home sales in Braemar going back to May 2021, our updated six and twelve month market markers are updated and may indicate a slight shift in the market.

Starting with the sold price column we find that the six month average sold price has increased about one percent from the twelve month average. Increases in six month value are what we have been seeing in the seller’s market conditions of late. However, the six month median sold price has fallen below the twelve month median sold price. We will have to see what next report shows us, because recent multiple offer scrums in the neighborhood tell me we are still seeing very high buyer demand.

Seller subsidy is where we learn how much closing cost help sellers gave buyers. In the case of Ryan home sellers, the amount of closing cost help has been nothing in recent sales. However, the six month average seller subsidy is a little higher than the twelve month average. Not to worry, the six and twelve month median seller subsidy values remain at zero. This means more than half of Braemar Ryan home sellers gave nothing in closing cost help in both time frames.

Marketing time has increased in both six month values compared to their respective twelve month values. This are not big increases. Buyers are being more deliberate in their actions as mortgage interest rates have increased. They are not as susceptible to pouncing on listings immediately.

If you placed your Ryan home on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in a week or so. You could also expect to give nothing in seller subsidy. Home inspection contingencies are making a come back, but largely seem to be of the right to void variety from what I am experiencing.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in July. Until then, if you would like to investigate what a 2022 sale would mean for you, don’t hesitate to reach out for a confidential consultation. I have made it my business to be the most informed agent in the neighborhood. And I consider it my best talent to create buyer enthusiasm around my listings, maxing out my seller’s profit. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
