Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: April-June 2021 (2nd Quarter)

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: April-June 2021 (2nd Quarter)

Some dark clouds mid afternoon have given way to some gorgeous sunlight on this July evening in Braemar. It is odd to get used to evenings with full sunlight, thanks to daylight saving time. Another thing that has been hard to get used to is the crazy seller’s market that Braemar has been experiencing.

In this edition of the Braemar Piggyback Quarterly, I will look back at the sales that happened of the back-to-back townhouses with two car garages that sold in our neighborhood. I will also provide six and twelve month data points, showing us what the market has done in the shorter term.

For starters, there were five Braemar Piggyback townhouses that sold in the second quarter. Final sold prices ranged from $390,000 to $430,000 and are detailed below:

Taking these five sales and combining them with the previous three quarters of Braemar Piggyback townhouse sales, the six and twelve month values are updated as reflected below:

Starting in the sold price column, seeing both the six month average and six month median sold prices higher than their respective twelve month counterparts means that Braemar Piggyback townhouses are continuing to increased in value. Substantial growth in property values has become normal with the outrageous buyer demand and lack of inventory.

Seller subsidy is the column where we learn how much closing cost help buyers were able to negotiate from sellers. Down the line all values are in agreement at ZERO. Buyers facing multiple offer situations are having to come forth with strong offers with little to no requests of the seller. Seller subsidy requests are extremely rare these days.

Days on market is single digits down the line. The only movement seems to be in the six month average shrinking one day from the twelve month average. Piggyback townhomes are selling fast.

If you placed your Braemar Piggyback townhouse 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 give nothing in closing cost help.

The next Braemar Piggyback Quarterly will be out in October. Until then, when the time comes to sell your Bramear home, no matter what the market conditions are, the key to getting the maximum amount of the market is creating buyer enthusiasm. That is done with proper listing preparation and professional marketing. My Braemar sellers have been reaping the rewards of both for years. Get in touch with me and I’ll do the same for you. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: January-March 2021 (1st Quarter)

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: January-March 2021 (1st Quarter)

What a gorgeous Saturday to begin the month of May. This Braemar Piggyback Quarterly was supposed to be out in April, but the real estate market has been so slammed I had a hard time coming up for air. Today is a great day to do just that and bring you up to speed on the Braemar Piggyback market. Before we begin, it is useful to inform you what constitutes a Braemar Piggyback townhouse. They are attached back to back and side to side and are the only townhouses in Braemar with two car garages.

During the first quarter, three Braemar Piggyback townhouses sold. The details of those sales are listed below:

Not very common to see two exact same list prices two months apart, yielding the exact same sold prices. Taking these sales and combining them with the previous three quarters of Braemar Piggyback townhouse sales, our six and twelve month data points are updated as follows:

Starting with the sold price column, we see generous increases in both six month average and six month sold prices compared to their respective twelve month values. This means that Braemar Piggyback townhouses are continuing to gain in value. Exactly what we would expect to see in a seller’s market.

The seller subsidy column is where we find out how much closing cost help Braemar buyers were able to negotiate from their sellers. I am not at all surprised to see both the six month average and six month median seller subsidy figures at zero. If things keep up at the pace they have been, that twelve month average will be zero before too long. To compete in multiple offer scenarios, Braemar buyers are having to forego a lot of concessions and contingencies just to be chosen.

Days on market in the six month average and six month median are the same at five days. Both are improvements over their twelve month counterparts, but the average value is the one that got cut in half in the most recent average. Braemar Piggyback townhouses are selling fast!

If you placed your Braemar Piggyback townhouse on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in less than a week. You could also expect very clean offers from buyers who will be highly unlikely to request any closing cost help.

The next Braemar Piggyback Quarterly will be out in July. Until then, if you have been considering the sale of your Braemar home, get in touch with me to find out how being prepared and professionally marketed gets you even more than you could have imagined in a seller’s market. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: October-December 2020 (4th Quarter)

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: October-December 2020 (4th Quarter)

As this Saturday work day draws to a close for this Braemar Real Estate Agent, I am bringing you another property value update. This installment is the Braemar Piggyback Quarterly and focuses on the fourth quarter sales of the two car garage townhouses in our neighborhood that are attached back to back and side to side. For the record, these are the only two car garage townhouses in our Braemar neighborhood, so if you have a two car garage townhouse, this report is for you.

During the last three months of 2020 there were two Braemar Piggyback townhouses that sold. The details of those sales are listed below:

Taking these sales from the fourth quarter and combining them with the entire year’s worth of Braemar Piggyback townhouse sales from 2020, our six and twelve month data points are updated as follows:

To start, the sold price column shows a very small increase in average value from the twelve month sold price to the six month sold price. On the other hand, an even smaller decrease is seen going from the twelve month median sold price to the six month median sold price. Had it not been for the most recent Braemar Piggyback townhouse sale of $370,000, I would be the first to say this is what market value stability looks like. However, it seems that we’re likely to see these two car garage townhouses in Braemar continue to push up in value as we move into 2021.

The seller subsidy column reveals a great trend for Braemar Piggyback townhouse sellers. The six month average seller subsidy (closing cost help to buyers) is at zero, down from over $3,400 average seller subsidy in the twelve month average. That means the latter half of the year, as buyers were competing for the limited inventory available, fewer asked for closing cost help. The fact that the six month median and twelve month median seller subsidy numbers are the same at zero tells us that in both of these time periods, more than half of the Braemar Piggyback townhouse sellers gave nothing in closing cost help. Even our most recent sales from the fourth quarter have zero seller subsidy.

Finally, we come to the days on market column. The already very reasonable eleven days on market found in the twelve month average shrunk to six days in the six month average. Meanwhile, the difference in the twelve month median vs. the six month median was only one day less of marketing time in the recent sales. Our market is gobbling up properties very quickly as there is hardly anything on the market.

If you placed your Braemar Piggyback townhouse on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in less than one week. You could also expect that would not have to give any seller subsidy at all.

The next Braemar Piggyback Quarterly will be out in April. Until then, know that Braemar homes are peaking in value this year. The year 2021 has been predicted to be one more year of low inventory and high buyer demand. We won’t know when we’ve hit the market peak until values start their decline, so if you’ve been waiting to get top dollar for your Braemar home, get in with me and let’s take a look at what the market conditions mean in a potential sale for you. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: July-September (3rd Quarter)

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: July-September (3rd Quarter)

What a gorgeous fall day. The colors are really starting to pop in our neighborhood. The other thing popping, of course, is our local real estate market. Today I present to you the Braemar Piggyback Quarterly, covering activity from the third quarter. Piggyback townhouses in our neighborhood are characterized by lack of a back yard, as they are attached side-to-side and back-to-back. They also are the only townhouses in Braemar to have two car garages.

During the third quarter, there were four Braemar Piggyback townhouses that sold. Coincidentally, they all sold in the month of July. The details of those four sales are listed below:

While two of the sales were about $355,000, there was one a lot more and one that sold for a lot less. You can probably discern from the information provided that the high sale was the only end unit that sold. The low sale was only a two bedroom townhouse. Taking all of these sales and combining them with the previous three quarters to give us a complete twelve months’ worth of data, our six and twelve month data points are updated as reflected below:

Starting with the sold price column we see that the six month average sold price is a bit higher than than the twelve month average sold price. That’s a smidge more than a 1% gain in average value in the short term average. Meanwhile, the six month median is only $500 above the twelve month median sold price. Any direction upward is good.

The seller subsidy column is where we get to see how much closing cost help Braemar Piggyback townhouse sellers gave to buyers. Of course, in the four most recent sales, no Braemar Piggyback townhouse seller gave ANY closing cost help. However, the average seller subsidy, while lower in the six month value compared to the twelve month value, still shows that Braemar Piggyback sellers had been giving closing cost help in the second quarter and even earlier than that. The six month median and twelve month median seller subsidy values are identical at $5,000. That means that in both time periods, more than half the sellers gave closing cost. If our third quarter sales are any indication of what may be coming up in the fourth quarter, I may expect to see zero in the six month median at a minimum next report.

Days on market, or as I like to refer it–marketing time, was six days faster when comparing the six month average marketing time to the twelve month average marketing time. The six month median marketing time was only three days faster than the twelve month median. This means Braemar Piggyback townhomes are selling even faster.

If you placed your Braemar Piggyback townhouse on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect that it would be under contract in no more than a week or less than two weeks. You could also expect that if you needed to give seller subsidy, you may only have to give about 1.5% of the sales price.

The next Braemar Piggyback Quarterly will be out in January. Until then, if the need arises to sell your Breamar Piggyback townhouse, give me a call for a free market analysis. While any home can sell in our current market with low inventory and high demand, not every home gets top dollar. Top dollar is only achieved with top notch marketing, negotiation and appraisal preparation. If top dollar is important when you sell, I’m your gal. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: April-June 2020 (2nd Quarter)

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: April-June 2020 (2nd Quarter)

Another day, another Braemar market report.  Today’s report is the Braemar Piggyback Quarterly.  This it the report that focuses on the two car garage townhouses that are not only attached on the sides, but also in the back.  Hence the name Piggyback townhouse. They are the only two car garage townhouses in our neighborhood.

During the second quarter there were five Piggyback townhouses that sold.  Sold prices ranged from $347,100 to $360,000.  Details of those five sales are listed below.

Taking these second quarter sales and combining them with the previous three quarters worth of Piggyback townhouse sales, we get an entire year’s worth of data.  The updated six and twelve month data points from that data pool are shown below.

Starting with the sold price column, we see both the six month average and six month median sold prices are above their respective twelve month values.  This means Braemar Piggyback townhouses are still moving up in value.

The seller subsidy column is where we see how much closing cost assistance sellers have been giving buyers.  Though only down by a little, both the six month seller subsidy values are lower than their twelve month counterparts.  This means sellers have been giving a bit less in closing cost help overall.

Finally, when it comes to marketing time, we see that the six month average days on market is nearly a week shorter than the twelve month average days on market.  And even though just by a day, the six month median days on market is shorter than the twelve month median.  The pace of our market means quick sales for sellers with homes priced right and ready to move in.

If you placed your Braemar Piggyback townhouse on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it would be under contract in about two weeks.  You could also expect to pay about 1.5% to 2% of the sales price in seller subsidy.

The next Braemar Piggyback Quarterly will be out in October.  Until, if the time has come to sell your Braemar Piggyback townhouse, give me a call for a free market analysis. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: January-March 2020 (1st Quarter)

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: January-March 2020 (1st Quarter)

Being well into April, it is time to take a look back at the first quarter of the year and see what happened in the Braemar real estate market with respect to Piggyback townhouses.  If you are not familiar with what a Braemar Piggyback townhouse is, they are three level townhouses, completely above grade, with attached two car garages.  The townhouses themselves are attached not just on the sides like traditional townhouses, but also along their back wall to another row of townhouses.  What they lack in not having a back yard, they make up for the large bedroom sizes.

There were two Braemar Piggyback townhouses that sold during the first quarter.  Details of those sales are listed below:

Taking these two sales and combining them with the previous three quarters to make an entire year’s worth of sales, we get the following updated six and twelve month data points.

Starting with the sold column, we see conflicting trends.  The six month average sold price is a tad higher than the twelve month average sold price.  That would indicate values pushing up in value.  The six month median sold price, however, has fallen below the twelve month median sold price.  This would indicate values falling a bit.  Taking a quick peek at the two sales from the first quarter, we have one above the six month data points and one well below.  That doesn’t help clear this up.  Since neither the change up or down is a big one, it is best to proclaim Piggyback townhouse values stable.

Next we move to seller subsidy, also known as closing cost help to buyer.  There is a clear trend here.  Both the six month average and six month median sold seller subsidy values are higher than their twelve month respective values.  This means buyers have been asking for, and receiving, higher amounts of closing cost assistance in the more recent past.

Finally, days on market reveals a definite trend as well.  Both the six month average and six month median marketing times are longer than the twelve month average and twelve month median marketing times.  This means it has been taking longer to sell Braemar Piggyback townhouses.

If you placed your Braemar Piggyback townhouse on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in two to four weeks.  You could also to pay out about 2% of the sales price in seller subsidy.

We have yet to see how the measures to curb the spread of COVID will impact our Braemar real estate market.  By the next Braemar Piggyback Quarterly, which will be out in July, we will see what effect, if any our current situation is having on values.  Until then, if you want to know how to safely sell your Braemar home, while maximizing profit, hiring the right real estate agent has never been more important.  Give me a call and let’s talk.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: October-December 2019 (4th Quarter)

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: October-December 2019 (4th Quarter)

Welcome to another edition of the Braemar Piggyback Quarterly.  This particular edition looks back to the fourth quarter of 2019 to Piggyback townhouse sales in our neighborhood of Braemar.  If you are not familiar with what a Braemar Piggyback townhouse is, they are three level townhouses, completely above grade, with attached two car garages.  The townhouses themselves are attached not just on the sides like traditional townhouses, but also along their back wall to another row of townhouses.  What they lack in not having a back yard, they make up for the large bedroom sizes.

During the last quarter of 2019, which started October 1st and ended December 31st, there were four Braemar Piggyback townhouses that sold.  Their final sold prices ranged from $332,000 to $355,000.  The details of each of those sales are listed below.

Immediately you notice that one of the sales is highlighted in pink.  That means that I was the listing agent for that home.  Bringing you consistent market reports for Braemar certainly makes me a super knowledgeable agent.  However, I like to show you the results that my sellers, and buyers, get when they hire me.  Not only did the seller of 13036 Bathgate get one of the highest sold prices, she had multiple offers and was under contract in only six days!

Taking all four of these fourth quarter sales and combining them with every Piggyback home sale that happened in Braemar during 2019, we get updated six and twelve month data points.  This is what gives us our market insights.  Our updated values points are below:

Looking first at the sold price column, we see that both the six month average and six month median sold prices are above their respective twelve month values.  This means that Braemar Piggyback townhouses saw some some increases in recent sales.  However, it is worth noting that two of the four sales in the fourth quarter fall below even the six month average sold price.  That happens enough and values will be on the down turn.

Next up, we see an increase in the six month average and median seller subsidy when those values are compared to their twelve month counterparts.  This means that Braemar Piggyback townhouse buyers have been asking for, and receiving, more closing cost help from sellers.  This could be an indicator that our seller’s market is cooling off a bit.

Finally, when it comes to days on market (or marketing time as I like to call it,) we see that there was a slight increase in marketing time from the six month average compared to the twelve month average.  There was only a one day increase in marketing time when looking at the six month median to the twelve month median.  I noticed when I sold 13036 Bathgate that Braemar Piggyback homes tended to be hanging on the market longer.  Truly, hiring the right agent for the job and getting the best advice, puts you in the shorter time frames.  However, overall it is taking a little longer on average to sell Braemar Piggyback homes.  Perhaps another indicator of the cooling of our Braemar seller’s market.

If you placed your Braemar Piggyback townhouse on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in about two to four weeks.  You could also expect to paay 2% to 3% of the sales price in closing cost assistance to your buyer.

The next Braemar Piggyback Quarterly will be out in April.  By then, the spring market in Braemar will already be in full swing.  If you want to get on top of it and get the top dollar for your home in the shortest period of time, give me a call.  Since 2005, No One Braemar Better!

Another Braemar Townhouse Sold by Chris Ann Cleland

Another Braemar Townhouse Sold by Chris Ann Cleland

On September 26th, this piggyback townhouse located at 13036 Bathgate Way hit the market priced at $355,000.  As the competition around this listing seemed to be languishing on the market and dropping their prices below where we were hitting, I had to wonder if we would be languishing too.  Not at all.  It was a delightful surprise to have two buyers with competing offers within four days. Who would have guessed there were multiple buyers who wanted a property like this, priced above its competitors, based on what we saw hitting the market?

Great results start with choosing the best agent for the job.  For this seller, and many other Braemar sellers, that is me.  I know how to market the various styles of homes in the neighborhood because I am familiar with all of them.  I have been a resident of the neighborhood since 2005, and I have served most of those years on an HOA board.  My slogan, No One Knows Braemar Better, is most definitely true.

Not only do I know the neighborhood and how to position the listings I have against their competition, I know how to market them professionally to get my sellers the maximum attention from online buyers.  Professional photography is a must, but so is preparation prior to photos.  That’s where my marketing skills come in handy, helping my sellers edit their “stuff” so their homes show in the absolute best light.  Any agent can take your listing, snap some photos and throw you in the MLS.  Professional marketing gets the best results.  You don’t put a listing up with the phrase, “Immaculately kept” and have towels in bathrooms look as though they were thrown from across the room to land haphazardly on the towel rack.  Attention to detail is critical for a listing agent.

Getting under contract quickly, and in an unexpected multiple offer situation, my Bathgate seller got terms that favored her.  The next hurdle was getting the home to appraise for the list price the buyer was willing to pay.  Remember, our competitors were dropping their prices to get noticed.  That’s not a environment that is easy to deal with come appraisal time.  As is my business practice, I met the appraiser at the property with information on the home, what set it apart from its competition and comparable sales that we had based our list price on.  Low and behold, we were through appraisal with no issue.

The only speed bump this sale hit was in the processing of the buyer’s grant from VHDA.  Our settlement date was delayed from Halloween to November 5th (2019.)  There is no escaping government bureaucracy, but a great agent keeps their client informed every day as to what is happening….even if that is nothing.

When you are ready to sell your Braemar home, remember that success starts with your choice of agent.  Your decision should be based on results and how the agent’s previous listings have been marketed and sold. Of course, an agent who can get you the best results is not going to be cheapest, but they will make you the most money.   Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: July-September 2019 (3rd Quarter)

Braemar Piggyback Quarterly: July-September 2019 (3rd Quarter) 

Yesterday I was at a birthday celebration and one of the guests had received a my under contract postcard for 13036 Bathgate Way.  It briefly told the same tale as my blog post on the subject.  Of course, the other guests started asking what a piggyback townhouse was.  The image that the term conjured in their mind was a townhouse on top of a townhouse, like you would find at Heathcote Commons.  Those are referred to as “stacked condos.”

In Braemar, a piggyback townhouse is one that is back to back with another row of townhouses.  And just like a traditional townhouse, they are also attached on the sides. The trade off for not having a back yard is that you get much larger bedrooms than a traditional townhouse and an attached two car garage. This report details the sales of Braemar Piggyback townhouses that happened from July to September.

There was only one sale of a Braemar Piggyback townhouse during the third quarter of 2019.  The details of that sale are listed below:

While there was only the one sale, combining it with the previous three quarters of Piggyback sales gives us an entire year’s worth of sales data.   From that the six and twelve month data points are freshened up to reveal the following:

Looking at the sold price column, it is a sign of rising property values that both the six month average and six month median sold prices are above their twelve month counterparts.  This indicates Braemar Piggyback townhouses are still pushing up in value.  However, seeing that there are four Braemar Piggyback townhouses sitting on the market, I’m not sure this trend is going to continue.  Only time will tell.  We’ll have to wait and see.

Now for the seller subsidy column.  As of the end of the third quarter, buyers were having to compete for these homes and forego or drastically reduce their requests for closing cost help.  However, the beginning of the fourth quarter is revealing a different trend that will become clear in our next report.

Days on market also reveals that as of the end of the third quarter, these Braemar Piggyback townhouses were selling faster in the short term six month values, compared to the longer term twelve month values.   Again, just looking at the days on market peeling off for the homes just sitting on the market now, this is a trend we are likely to see change by the second quarter of 2020.

If you placed your Braemar Piggyback townhouse on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect your home to be under contract in a week.  If it is not, there is something wrong with either your marketing or list price, or both.  I am still puzzled that my listing at 13036 Bathgate had two offers, yet there are similar listings still waiting for offers just lingering on the market.  Also, this report indicates you could potentially get an offer with no closing cost help requested.  However, as demand wanes, this is likely to no longer be the case.

The next Braemar Piggyback Quarterly will be out in January and will detail the activity from the fourth quarter.  Until then, don’t squander your only chance to maximize the profit from the sale of your Braemar home.  When it is time to sell, give me a call.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar End Unit Piggyback Townhouse: Under Contract in 6 Days!

Braemar End Unit Piggyback Townhouse: Under Contract in 6 Days!

On September 26th, it was my pleasure to introduce 13036 Bathgate Way to the Braemar marketplace.  Priced at $355,000, we were optimistic about what we had to offer, but were entering the market competing against two other piggyback townhouses and one patio home that had yet to be chosen.  Didn’t even realize that we hit the market the same day as yet another piggyback style townhouse.  The next door neighbor was a competitor and it had been on the market since late August.  The market wasn’t gobbling up everything right away.  

This is where my seller excelled.  She did everything that she could to make her property marketable.  She painted it inside and took care of wood rot and trim outside.  She even made a fall wreath for the door.  She would have me over to look at the progress and I would give her more pointers.  The last trip over with last minute tips was the one where I thought she would open a window and throw me out.  I suggested removing more of her furniture and rearranging how it was laid out.  This meant more heavy lifting.  No seller likes hearing suggestions when they feel worn down to a nub.  My seller, however, was a champ.  She trusted what I was saying about the market changing and that if she wanted to get this done quickly, she had one chance to make a first impression.

The day I showed up to meet the photographer my seller had transformed her living area by removing the pieces I suggested and rearranging the furnishings.  The home was clean as a whistle and ready to say cheese for the photographer.  After fourteen in this business, I know that professional marketing makes all the difference in getting chosen over your competitors, getting your price, and most importantly keeping your price through the appraisal process.  I hire professionals to take the photos and even hire professionals to install the yard sign.  It is not unusual for my sign to be sitting straight and sturdy next to a flimsy, self-installed post.  I am happy to put my own money where my mouth is and hire out these services and even bring in my own staging items to make a house look more welcoming.  And of course, it my ultimate pleasure to feature my Braemar listings on my Braemar blog.

Our existing three competitors and the one that hit the market the same day as us are still on the market.  Meanwhile, my seller got two offers within four days.  It just took two additional days to button up the deal with the buyer that was the most attractive to the seller.

If everything goes as planned, I’ll be back on Halloween to tell you that this end unit beauty has sold and give you the final details.  In the meantime, when it is time to sell your home, I would be delighted to get the same results for you.  No matter the market, you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression on buyers or the appraiser.  Hire the best to get the job done right.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
