Braemar Property Value Report: May-June 2016 (Ryan Homes)

 

Braemar Property Value Report:  May-June 2016 (Ryan Homes)

So much going on in Braemar real estate this week.  You wouldn’t believe the amount of work that goes into to getting a home to close on time these days.  I’ve already had two Braemar homes with delayed settlements and narrowly avoided a third late settlement this month.  Perhaps the best news is that a Braemar Short Sale I’ve been working on since last Victoria Model Ryan Home in BraemarFebruary sold yesterday.  As it happens, it was an Oberlin model by Ryan Homes.

Today I have the Braemar Property Value Report for Ryan Homes to tell you about.  This one will detail sales of Ryan Homes in May and June.

There were three Ryan Homes sold, all of them in May.  The high sold price was $538,477. The low sold price was $437,500.  The average of all three gives us our new average market value of Ryan Homes in Braemar of $483,626.  That’s nearly a 10% increase in average market value since last report and barely a measurable increase at all since this time last year.

Braemar Property Value Report:  May-June 2016 (Ryan Homes)

If you placed your Ryan Home on the market, priced to current conditions in Braemar, you could expect it to be under contract in an average of about one week.  You could also expect to pay an average of a little below 1.5% of the sales price in closoing cost help to the buyer.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in late September and will detail sales from the months of July and August.  In the meantime, when you are ready to sell, call me Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037for a free market analysis of your home’s value in today’s marketplace.  No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Property Value Report: May-June 2016 (NV Homes)

 

Braemar Property Value Report:  May-June 2016 (NV Homes)

Another summer day in Braemar meant another hot and humid day for folks to enjoy the pools, or kids to chase Pokemon on their cell phones.  Though 2:00am last night/this morning seemed to be prime time for Pokemon catching on Tartan Hills Parkway.  Two young teens, maybe even tweens, standing in the middle of the road.  Are Pokemon really that important?  I suppose they are important enough to someone to be out at the wee hours of the morning.

What’s important to me is getting Braemar homes sold for my sellers and finding great homes for my Braemar buyers.  Wynterhall by NV HomesRight now, my job means putting out this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report that goes over sales of NV Homes between the months of May and June.  So let’s get to it.

There were four NV Homes that sold between the beginning of May and end of June.  The high sold price was $572,000.  The low sold price, repeated twice this reporting period, was $485,000.  The average of all the sold prices gives us our new average market value for NV Homes in Braemar of $518,000.  That’s just under a 7% decrease in average market value since last report, but less than 1/2 of 1% drop in average market value from this time last year.  The monthly drop shouldn’t be overly concerning since two of those NV Homes that sold had unfinished basements and one had only a partially finished basement.  It’s fair to say that most NV Homes that sell in the neighborhood, or at least last report, have finished basements.

Braemar Property Value Report:  May-June 2016 (NV Homes)

If you placed your NV Home on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in just under one month.  You could also expect to pay an average of about 1.5% of the sales price in closing cost assistance.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in September and will detail sales Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037from the months of July and August.  In the meantime, when you want to sell your NV Home, give me a call for a free market analysis of your home’s specific value.   No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Property Value Report: May-June 2016 (Heritage Series)

Braemar Property Value Report:  May-June 2016 (Heritage Series)

It was another scorcher today in Bristow.  If I were a person of leisure, I would have spent the afternoon enjoying one of our Braemar pools.  Unfortunately, that wasn’t in the cards for me today.  That’s okay.  I’m used to having a busy calendar with my chosen profession as a real estate agent.  I love my job.

Right now my job is presenting another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one will details sales of homes in the Heritage Series in our neighborhood for the months of May and June.  Heritage Series homes, for those who may not be familiar, are the mid-sized single family homes, built by Brookfield Homes, with two car attached garages including the following floor plans:  Exeter, Yardley, Zachery & 9706 Native Rocks Drive listed for $499,000 on June 16, 2016Waverly.  

Shameless plug:  I have a great five bedroom Waverly on the market right now for $499,000, located at 9706 Native Rocks Drive.  Click the link to read all about it.

There were seven Braemar Heritage Series homes that sold between the beginning of May and end of June.  An unlikely five of them were Exeters, which is the smallest in the Heritage Series.  That is going to pull down the average market value when we get there, as we are used to seeing more Yardleys sell, which is a larger home.  As it stands now, the high sold price was $445,000 and the low sold price was $414,900.  The average of all seven sales gives us our new average market value of $430,486.  Given all that influence of smaller homes selling in this particular reporting period, it is not panic inducing to know that this is a 5% decrease in average market value since last report and a 3.5% decrease in average market value since last year.   We’ll have a more true picture of market value as we move past this particular report’s influence.

Braemar Property Value Report:  May-June 2016 (Heritage Series)

If you placed your Heritage Series home on the market, priced to current conditions, this report indicates that it would be under contract in an average of about a month and a half.  You could expect to pay an average of 1.5% of the sales price in closing cost help to the buyer.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in late September and will detail sales Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037from the months of July and August.  Until then, when you are ready to sell, give me and call and let’s talk about the specific value of your Braemar home.  No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Property Value Report: March-April 2016 (Arista Series)

Braemar Property Value Report: March-April 2016 (Arista Series)

Though we have been living under gray, drizzly skies in Braemar for the past few weeks, the spring real estate market doesn’t need sunshine to keep chugging along.  In Canterbury in Braemarthis edition of the Braemar Property Value Report we will look back to sales of homes in the Arista Series for the months of March and April.  Arista Series homes are the large single family homes built by Brookfield Homes.  The floor plans are:  Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury.

Unlike the last two reports that saw no sales activity for these homes, there were four Arista Series homes that sold between March 1st and April 30th.  The low sold price was $475,000 and the high sold price was $559,000.  The average of all four gives us our new average market value of $522,500.  While we have no comparison to last report since there were no sales, we do see that the average for a Braemar Arista Series home has decreased a little more than 3% since last year.  These are averages.  In general, given the high demand for single family homes in Braemar, home values overall in the neighborhood are on the rise.

Braemar Property Value Report: March-April 2016 (Arista Series)

If you placed your Braemar Arista home on the market, priced to current conditions, this report indicates you could expect your home to be under contract in an average of three months.  I think you will see much faster results given the current market.  You could also expect to pay an average of nearly 1% of the sales price in closing cost help to the buyer.

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in July and will focus on sales from May and June.   Until then, when you are ready to sell your Braemar home, give me a call.  No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Property Value Report:  January-February 2016 (Ryan Homes)

It is time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one is specifically for Ryan Home in Braemarhouses built by Ryan Homes in Braemar.

There were four Ryan Homes that sold in the first two months of the year.  The low sold price was really low at $325,000.  The high sold price was $540,000.  Quite a difference between the bottom and top numbers.   The average of all four gives us our new average market value of $435,000 for Ryan Homes in Braemar.  That is nearly 7.5% lower than last report and 9% lower than last year.  Again, remember we have a crazy low number bringing down that average.  For the most part, home values in Braemar have been fairly stable over the last year.

Braemar Property Value Report:  January-February 2016 (Ryan Homes)

If you placed your Ryan Home on the market, priced to current conditions, this report indicates it would be under contract in less than three months.  Please bear in mind this average marketing time is for homes marketed during the final months of 2015.  The last Ryan I listed in February went under contract in 6 days.  More accurately, this report indicates you could expect to pay over 1.5% of the sales price in closing cost help to the buyer.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in late May and will detail sales from Chris Ann Cleland, Bristow Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037the months of March and April. In the meantime, when you are ready to sell, call me for a free market analysis of your home’s value in today’s marketplace.  No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Property Value Report:  November-December 2015 (Ryan Homes)

The thaw from the blizzard Jonas is still underway.  The snow piles look less intimidating every day, which is a relief.  Eventually this will be nothing more than a memory.

Right now, let’s talk Oberlin Model by Ryan Homes in BraemarBraemar Property Values, specifically those for Ryan Homes sold in the last two months of 2015.  Of course, Ryan Homes are simply the single family homes built by Ryan Homes in our neighborhood.

There were two Ryan Homes sold in Braemar during November and December.  The low sold price was $440,000.  The high sold price was $500,000.  The average of both gives us our new average market value for Ryan Homes in Braemar of $470,000.  Because no Ryan Homes sold in the last report, the only comparison we have is to last year.  When we look back to last year’s report, we see the average market value for Ryan Homes in Braemar has come up over 7.5%.

Braemar Property Value Report:  November-December 2015 (NV Homes)

What a difference one single day can make.  I’m referring, of course, to the near fifty degree temperatures we enjoyed in Bristow today that provided a lot of melting for the Brandenburg Model by NV Homessnow accumulation left by Jonas.  There is grass, mulch and asphalt under that snow and we saw that today.  Hooray.  In my giddiness about the melting snow, I nearly forgot to post this Braemar Property Value Report regarding the last two months of 2015 sales for NV Homes in our neighborhood.  Simply put, NV Homes are the single family homes built by NV Homes in Braemar.

There were three NV Homes that sold in November and December.  The low sold price was $380,000 (that’s not a typo) and the high sold price was $555,000.  The average of all three gives us our new average market value of NV Homes in Braemar of $491,333.  Unfortunately, we have nothing to compare that average with.  There were no sales of NV Homes last report or last year.

Braemar Property Value Report:  November-December 2015 (NV Homes)

If you placed your NV Home on the market, priced to current conditions in Braemar, you could expect it to be under contract in an average of fifty days.  You could also expect to pay an average of nearly 1% of the sales price in buyer closing cost assistance.

Braemar Property Value Report:  November-December 2015 (Arista Series)

It is time for another Braemar Property Value Report, detailing sales of Arista Series homes in Braemar in the last two months of 2015.  In case you don’t know what an Arista Series homes Popular Canterbury Model in Braemarare,  they are the large, single family homes built by Brookfield Homes.  The floor plans are:  Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury.

Unfortunately, like the previous report (September-October 2015) and last year (November-December 2015,) there were no sales to report in the Arista Series.  That leaves us with no information.

Braemar Property Value Report: November-December 2015 (Arista Series)

Even though there were no sales to report in the Arista Series, there are Arista Series homes on the market and under contract.  At the time of this report, there are two Canterburys listed.  One is for $545,000 and another for $549,900.  There are two Allisters and one Canterbury under contract.  Their list prices ranged from $475,000 to $540,777.   It is worth noting that all the Arista homes currently under contract are Short Sales, as is one of the active listings.  For those that have gone under contract, the average marketing time was 122 days.

Braemar Property Value Report:  September-October 2015 (NV Homes)

Am I the only one looking forward to Monday after this long holiday weekend?  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy holiday time with family and friends, but I also love routine.  Mid-week holidays always screw up my schedule.  Of course, I also love my job.  I know Brandenburg Model by NV HomesMondays are synonymous with most people of going back to work.  For me, work is a way of life.  Selling Bristow-Gainesville real estate is a truly enjoyable way to earn a living.

When you work as a real estate agent, particularly doing your own marketing, you don’t have to wait until Monday to get work done.  Like today–it is Sunday and I’m preparing more Braemar Property Value Reports.  It beats drowning in the Hallmark movie channel.

This particular Braemar Property Value Report focuses on the sales of houses built by NV Homes in Braemar.  Unfortunately, there were no sales of NV Homes in September or October.  And there weren’t any last report.  We have last year’s average market value of $487,000, but that’s not super helpful.

Braemar Property Value Report:  September-October 2015 (NV Homes

What I can tell you is that NV homes are not the only ones not seeing lack of activity.  The Arista Series homes, similar sized homes built by Brookfield Homes and Ryan Homes, are also seeing lack of activity.  What becomes of this lack of activity for these larger homes will only be seen when we do finally see closed sales.  Right now, I’m seeing price reductions on larger homes listed in Braemar.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in late January and will detail sales Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037from November and December.  In the meantime, when you want to sell your NV Home, give me a call for a free market analysis of your home’s specific value.   No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Property Value Report:  September-October 2015 (Heritage Series)

It is a gray Saturday in Braemar.   And according to Accuweather, it’s going to start raining in about 60 minutes.  That’s what I love about Accuweather.  They commit to forecasts and they are rarely wrong.  They give me their expert forecast down to the minute and not leave the interpelation up to me.  That’s what I do here with the Braemar Property Value Reports.  I compile Yardley Model in Braemarthe data and break it down for Braemar home owners.  Leave it to a full-time, top producing real estate agent like me to give you the low down on our local market.

This particular Braemar Property Value Report focuses on sales in the Heritage Series. Heritage Series homes, for those who may not be familiar, are the mid-sized single family homes, built by Brookfield Homes, with two car attached garages including the following floor plans:  Exeter, Yardley, Zachery & Waverly.

Two Yardleys sold between September and October.  Yardleys are, without question, the most prevalent of the Heritage Series floor plans in our neighborhood.  Both sold for exactly the same price–$430,000.  That makes this report easy.  Our new average market value for Braemar Heritage homes is $430,000.  That is over a 2.5% increase since last report, but over a 4% decrease in average market value since last year.

Braemar Property Value Reports:  September-October 2015 (Heritage Series)

If you placed your Braemar Heritage home on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in an average of 72 days.  Our marketing time has definitely been increasing as we move through the year.  You could also expect to pay a smidgeon of closing cost help to the buyer.  The average closing cost contribution was 2/10th of 1% of the sales price.

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in late January and will detail sales from the months of November and December.  Until then, when you are ready to sell, give me and call and let’s talk about the value of your specific Braemar home.  No One Knows Braemar Better!
