Braemar Property Value Report: September-October 2012 (Courtyard Series)

Braemar Property Value Report:  September-October 2012 (Courtyard Series)

The peak of the fall colors in Braemar is past.  The trees lost a lot of their foliage during Hurricane Sandy and are now naked.  Hey, at least most of them are still standing after that storm.  Our neighborhood did take some damage, but thankfully nothing too major.  I saw a few homes with siding torn off and some signs blown down.  Other than that, we can count ourselves lucky.

With September and October behind us, it’s time to take a look back at the Braemar Courtyard home market.  In case you are unfamiliar, a Braemar Courtyard home is one of three different models that share a private courtyard driveway and have very small yards.  Models include the Arlington, Ballston and Clarendon.

Not unlike other reporting periods, there were no resales of Braeamar Courtyard homes during the months of September and October 2012.  Same thing happened in September and October 2011 in fact.  Because Braemar Courtyard homes make up such a small part of our community and appeal to such particular buyers, seeing no sales in a reporting period is not cause for panic.  So until we have more Courtyard homes sell, we’ll look back to last report’s (July-August 2012) average market value for a baseline.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in January and will detail sales from November and December.  Until then, if you are thinking of selling your Braemar home, give me a call for a free market analysis.  I’ve been a Braemar resident and full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent since 2005. In 2007, I added the distinction of being a Short Sale Agent to my resume.  No matter what your equity position, I can get your Braemar home sold as fast as possible, and for the most amount of money.  And remember, no one knows Braemar better!
