Braemar Property Value Report: May-June 2022 (Ryan Homes)

The last of the Braemar Property Value Reports for single family home sales in May and June is coming to you now. This one in particular focuses on the houses built by Ryan Homes in our community. Let’s get right to it.

There were three Ryan Homes that sold between the beginning of May and end of June. Details of those sales are found below.

A quick look tells me these are all healthy sales happening in a seller’s market. They all sold above their list price, none gave any seller subsidy (closing cost help to the buyer) and they all went under contract in single digit days. Combining these sales with all the Ryan Home sales in Braemar going back to July 2021, the twelve months worth of data is pulled out into six and twelve month data points.

Starting with the sold price column, both the six month average and six month median sold prices are higher than their respective twelve month values. Compared to last report, these lifts that are seen in the six month values above their twelve month counterparts are improved. The six month average sold price has doubled the lift above the twelve month value. The six month median sold price is now above the twelve month median, which wasn’t the case last report. Yes, our market is still a seller’s market. The feeding frenzy resulting in a pile of offers with buyers waiving every conceivable contingency may be gone, but there are still more buyers than there are properties for them to buy. Buyers are just acting more deliberately.

Seller subsidy is now at zero in the six month average. However, the twelve month average has increased by by just under one hundred dollars. Clearly, a Ryan Home seller in the November/December time frame that gave seller subsidy has moved off the six month time frame and is now being counted in the twelve month time frame. In that twelve month time frame there were twenty-four Ryan Home sellers in Braemar. Only two of them gave seller subsidy. None gave any in the six month time frame.

Days on market has gone to a faster pace by one day in both the average and median. Last report, both six month values were a little longer. Even then, nothing to be concerned about. Marketing time is also showing us the continuation of the seller’s market in Braemar, despite rising mortgage interest rates.

If you placed your Ryan Home on the market, priced to current conditions in Braemar, you could expect to be under contract in a week, maybe two. July and August are times when the market does take a breath. Sellers think it is a great time to list when school is out and flock to market. Buyers are worn out from the house hunt and decide it is a great time to slow down, take vacations and have some fun in the sun. It is a typical seasonal disconnect. And as discussed above, you could expect to give nothing in seller subsidy. You could expect to see one, maybe two offers if you are lucky. And in the market now, buyers are not waiving contingencies. We are seeing more typical offers than the frenzy of the last couple years produced.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in September. Until then, if you want to investigate the potential sale of your Braemar home before the end of the year, get in touch for your complementary consultation. My pride and joy is getting my Braemar sellers top of the market through proper listing preparation, professional marketing and skilled negotiation. Take a look at the presentation of my latest listing at 12607 Cessford. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
