How Long Does it Take to Sell a Semi-Detached Braemar Home?

How Long Does it Take to Sell a Semi-Detached Braemar Home?

9684 Tarvie Circle is Listed for $439,000 on April

On April 11th (2019) this semi-detached home in Braemar, located at 9684 Tarvie Circle, hit the market priced at $439,000.  I had listed the home for the previous owners back in the fall of 2016, it wasn’t in nearly as impressive shape as it was this spring.  The new owners added granite counters to the kitchen, along with a tile backsplash.  New light fixtures made the place more modern, along with touches like the shiplap accent wall in the family room, and tile accent wall in the powder room.  A new HVAC and new carpet certainly were welcome additions as well.

In the last Reflection Quarterly, for the 4th Quarter of 2018, it was taking about thirty days for these homes to go under contract.  That was what we were set for with this home.  The sellers and I were pleasantly surprised by lots of showings and two offers that came in only two days!  When you have a great product, marketed by a masterful listing agent, good things happen.

The settlement is set to happen at the end of May.  Stay tuned for the final sold price.  In the meantime, if you have a Braemar single family home to sell, demand is off the charts!  Call me for a free market analysis of your home’s value in this market.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Reflection Quarterly: July-September 2016

Braemar Reflection Quarterly:  July-September 2016

Can’t believe it is is November, though like virtually everyone at this point, I am looking forward to an end to this contentious Presidential election on November 9th.  It is 9684 Tarvie Circle, Bristow, VAas though the election coverage is sucking me into mental quicksand.  Just the other day, during a trip to meet an appraiser on my own Reflection Series listing at 9684 Tarvie Circle, I realized that I had completely missed doing my quarterly Braemar market reports in October.  Since then I’ve been playing catch up.  This report is the last of the quarterlies, and it focuses on Reflection Series homes.

For those who may not be familiar with this style of home, Reflections Series homes are located off of Tarvie Circle and are the semi-detached single family homes, attached at the garage only.  There were two floor plans offered by Brookfield Homes:  Annan and Bromley.

That was a lot of wind up to tell you that there were no Reflection Series homes that sold during the third quarter of 2016.  Same thing happened last year in the third quarter. Though last quarter, there was one sale at $445,000.

Only my own listing is even on the radar in the Reflection Series this report and here is what I can tell you.  It started out on the market on August 18th, priced at $425,000.  After nearly three weeks on the market with little activity, the Sellers reduced their price to $414,900.  About one month later, the house went under contract.  It won’t be marked as sold until late November, which means you’ll read about it next report.

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037Speaking of the next report, the next Braemar Reflection Quarterly will be out in January and will focus on the 4th quarter of 2016.  Until then, when you are ready to sell your Braemar home, give me a call for a free market analysis.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Reflection Quarterly: April-June 2016

Braemar Reflection Quarterly:  April-June 2016

Funny.  I was just sitting down to type up this report and a Braemar Reflection home owner called me to investigate selling their home.  Talk about timing.

Reflection Series Home in BraemarThis edition of the Braemar Reflection Quarterly will look back on the second quarter of 2016.  For those who may be familiar with this style of home, Reflection Series homes are located off of Tarvie Circle and are the semi-detached single family homes that are attached at the garage only.  There were two floor plans offered by Brookfield Homes:  Annan and Bromley.

There was only one sale of a Braemar Reflection home during the second quarter of 2016.  It listed for $449,000 and sold for $445,000.  That final sold price is over a 5% increase from last quarter’s average value. Unfortunately, there is no comparison to the second quarter of 2015 since there were no sales then.

Reflection Home Values 2nd Quarter 2016

If you placed your Reflection home on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in about forty days.  You could also expect to pay a little over 1% of the sales price in closing cost help to the buyer.

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037The next Braemar Reflection Series Quarterly will be in October and will focus on activity during the third quarter of 2016.  Until then, when you are ready to sell your Braemar home, give me all call for a free market analysis.  No One Knows Braemar Better!
