Braemar Property Value Report: July-August 2013 (Heritage Series)

Braemar Property Value Report:  July-August 2013 (Heritage Series)

Yardley in BraemarThe pools are closed and the schools are back in session.  Summer may be officially over, but certainly not forgotten.  In this Braemar Property Value Report, we’ll take a look back at the last two months of summer and see how the Braemar Heritage Series home values fared.  If you don’t already know, Heritage Series homes in Braemar are mid-sized single family homes built by Brookfield homes, with attached two car garages and include the following floor plans:  Exeter, Yardley, Zachery and Waverly.

There were five resales of homes in the Heritages Series during the months of July and August.  Not surprisingly, the majority were Yardleys, the most popular model in Braemar.  The other two were Exeters.  The high sold price was $475,000 and the low sold price was $400,000.  The average of all five gives us our new average market value of $432,700 for Braemar Heritage Series homes.  The represents a $225 increase in value since last report (not percentage worthy increase, but stability in value nonetheless) and less than a 1% increase in value since last year.

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037If you placed your Exeter, Waverly, Yardley or Zachery on the market, priced to current market conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in an average of nearly one and a half months.  You could also expect a buyer to ask for an average of less than 1% of the sales price in closing cost assistance.

Another Yardley Sold in Braemar!

14513 Sowrdale Lane in Braeamar (a Yardley) sold for $430,000 on April 5, 2013

On February 12, 2013 I had the pleasure of listing this Yardley at 14513 Swordale Lane in Braemar.  With four bedrooms (all upper level), two and a half bathrooms, and a finished recreation room in the basement. this home had a lot to offer.  It even had a fenced yard, stamped concrete patio and a small wood deck.

Family Room of 14513 Swordale Lane.  Hardwoods were throughout the entire main level.It listed for $429.000.  By the end of the first day on the market, the first buyer had been through.  The next day, that buyer had submitted an offer.  Another was coming in right behind that one.  But by the time that offer had come in, a counter offer had been made to the first buyer and had been accepted.  It was under contract in just two days!

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037This Yardley settled today for $430,000, just slightly above the asking price.  And the seller only had to give $50 in closing cost help.
