Braemar Property Value Report: July-August 2014 (Carriage Series)

Braemar Property Value Report:  July-August 2014 (Carriage Series)

My favorite property types to report values for in our fair neighborhood ofBraemar are the Carriage homes.  Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage.  Rather, if they have a garage at all, it is detached and sits in back of the home.  The floor plans, from smallest to largest, are: MaplewoodNorwoodOakdale and Parkdale.

Braemar Carriage homes have the most activity, outside of townhouses, in our market.  In 13790 Tartan Hills Parkway is listed for $314,000fact, as of the time of this report, I have two Maplewood Carriage homes listed for sale:  12443 Iona Sound Drive for $325,000 and 13790 Tartan Hills Parkway for $314,000.  After reading this report, you will see they are among the best values in Braemar right now.

There were four Carriage homes that sold in Braemar during the months of July and August.  There was one Norwood, one Oakdale and two Parkdales making up the solds.  Their final sales prices ranged from $379,000 to $405,000.  The average of all four sales gives us our new average market value for Braemar Carriage homes of $388,500.  That represents over a 5% increase since last report and a 10% increase since last year.

If you placed your Braemar Carriage home on the market, priced to current conditions, this report indicates it would go under contract in an average of eight days.  You could also expect a buyer to ask for an average of just under 1/2 of 1% of the sales price in closing cost help.
