One Car Garage Townhouse Condo in Braemar Just Listed for $235,000

10024 Lord Lovat Way, Bristow VA Listed for $235,000 on June 12, 2013

One Car Garage Townhouse Condo in Braemar Just Listed for $235,000

Looking for move-in ready in Braemar for under $250,000?  What’s that?  You want a garage too?  No problem.  Let me introduce you to 10024 Lord Lovat Way, a two bedroom, one and a half bathroom condo located just one block from the Iona Sound community pool.

The owner has gone out of her way to get this home ready for it’s next owner.  Brand new carpet was installed on June 10th, just days before it hit the market.  It also has a fresh paint job.

Living Room

The kitchen was updated with stainless steel appliances and has Pergo flooring.  The powder room on the main level even got a fresh face with some new fixtures.

Kitchen

Breakfast Nook in Kitchen

A major convenience is having the full size washer and dryer on the bedroom level.

Master Bedroom

Second Bedroom

Since the entire townhouse was built above grade on a concrete slab, there really is no basement.  However, if you walk up the front stair way, and right back down, you’ll find a den that most would consider the basement.  A perfect place for a home office.  And just outside is a brick paver patio with some gorgeous flowers that will come back year after year.

Patio

Living in Braemar means having access to two outdoor pools, multiple tennis courts, basketball courts and tot lots.  There are picnic pavilions and walking trails as well.

The school district is very much in demand as well.  This Braemar condo sits in the Cedar Point Elementary School district, Marsteller Middle School and Patriot High School.

I’m sure this one won’t be on the market long, so if you would like to take a look, let’s get it scheduled.  If you don’t already have an agent and are looking to buy or sell in Braemar, give me a call.  No one knows Braemar better!

Braemar Condo Quarterly: April 2011-June 2011

The second quarter of 2011 is officially behind us and the Braemar community pools are busy entertaining now that school is out.  So what happened with Braemar condo resales during the second quarter of 2011? 

Well, just like the first quarter of the year, there were only two resales of Braemar condos during the second quarter.  One was a Short Sale, the other a Foreclosure.  And at the time of this report, there are two Short Sales under contract and one Short Sale active on the Braemar condo market.  Clearly, the Braemar condo market is still dominated by Short Sales.

The average sales price of those Braemar condo sales brings the average market value for Braemar condos down to $191,500 from $205,000 last quarter.  That’s nearly a 7% drop in three months time. 

If you placed your Braemar condo on the market, and priced it to current market conditions, this report indicates that you could expect your condo to be under contract in about one month’s time.  You could also expect a Buyer to ask for an average of about 1.6% of the sales price in closing cost help.

The next Braemar Condo Quarterly will be out in June.  Until then, if you are thinking of selling your Braemar condo, give me a call.  As a full-time Bristow real estate agent since 2005, and Short Sale Specialist since 2007, I can help you no matter your equity position.  Remember, no one knows Braemar better!
