Braemar Property Value Report: January -February 2014 (Arista Series)

Braemar Property Value Report:  January -February 2014 (Arista Series)

Popular Canterbury Model in BraemarWhile it is only a matter of days before we are officially in the spring season, we continue to be pounded by snow in Braemar.  And on trash and recycle days!  As if we didn’t have a hard enough time cramming all of our recycle from one week into the bin, the pick up gets rescheduled or skipped when it snows on recycle day.  It’s a bummer.

We’re not here to talk about the weather, or how small our recycling bins feel.  The purpose of the Braemar Property Value Report is to detail sales of homes in Braemar.  This particular report concerns homes in the Arista Series by Brookfield Homes.  Those were the largest homes built by Brookfield and include the Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury models.

Braemar Property Value Report:  January-February 2014 (Arista Series)

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037Unfortunately, there were no sales of any Arista Series homes during the first two months of 2014.  The last average property value we have for Braemar Arista Series homes is $515,000 from last report, covering the last two months of 2013.  And for now, that will have to do.  Certainly, given the recent activity I’ve seen in the Arista Series, I’d say we are in way better shape than last year.  We will just have to wait until next report to see where we stand.

Speaking of next report, the next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in May and will detail sales from March and April.  Until then, if you are thinking of selling your Braemar home, call me for a free market analysis of your specific home’s value.  I’ve been a Braemar resident and full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent since 2005.  I know our local market and how your home fits into it.  No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Property Value Report:  November-December 2013 (Heritage Series)

It is not a normal Bristow winter when twenty-three degrees is feeling warm.  It feels like someone took our lovely community of Braemar and put it on an iceberg.  Unfortunately, in the coming days, there seems to be no end in sight to our arctic chill.

Yardley in Braemar, Bristow, VAPerhaps this Braemar Property Value Report will give you a distraction from the cold.  It’s a look at sales of homes in the Heritage Series during the last two months of 2013.  Heritage Series homes are the mid-sized single family homes, built by Brookfield Homes, with two car attached garages including the following floor plans:  Exeter, Yardley, Zachery & Waverly.

There were two Yardleys that sold during the last two months of the year.  The high sold price was $468,000 and the low sold price was $428,000.  Averaging them out we get our new average market value for a Braemar Heritage Series home of $448,000.  That number represents nearly a 3.5% increase since last report and a 5.5% increase since the same time period last year.

Braemar Property Value Report:  November-December 2013 (Heritage Series)

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037If you placed your Exeter, Yardley, Zachery or Waverly on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect that it would be under contract in an average of just over one month.  You may also not have to pay a dime in closing cost assistance to a buyer.  As a seller, you have to love that!

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in March and will detail sales from the first two months of 2014.  Until then, if you want to know your specific home’s value, call me for your free market analysis.  I’ve been a full-time real estate agent and Braemar home owner since 2005.  In 2007, I also added the distinction of being a Short Sale Agent.  No matter what your equity position, I can get you the most money in the shortest amount of time when you sell your Braemar home.  No one knows Braemar better!

Braemar Property Value Report: March-April 2013 (Carriage Series)

Braemar Property Value Report:  March-April 2013 (Carriage Series)

Before the calendar even flipped us into 2013, the Bristow-Gainesville real estate market was ramping up.  By the time we rang in the new year, I was wondering if it could Braemar Carriage Home (Maplewood)get anymore hectic when spring arrived.  The answer?  Yes.  Our Braemar real estate market is making a lot of sellers very happy with the high buyer demand.  That demand is always multiplied in the Carriage homes of Braemar.  So without further delay, let’s take a look at what the last two months meant for resales in the Braemar Carriage homes.

In case you aren’t sure what a Braemar Carriage home is, Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of attached garage.  Rather, it has a detached garage, if it has one at all  Not all Carriage home buyers opted for the garage and instead, have a paved parking area in the rear of their home.  The models, from smallest to largest, include the MaplewoodNorwoodOakdale and Parkdale.

There were three Carriage home resales between the months of March and April.  The highest sold price was $360,000.  That was a four bedroom, three and a half bathroom Parkdale model.  The lowest sold price was $350,00).  That one was a Norwood with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.  The average of all three sold prices gives us our new average market value for Braemar Carriage homes of $354,667.  That is up nearly 18% since last report.  Unfortunately, because there were no resales in the same time period last year, we have no twelve month comparison.

Braemar Property Value Report:  March-April 2013 (Carriage Series)

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037If you placed your Braemar Carriage home on the market, priced to current market conditions, this report indicates that your home would be under contract in less than three weeks time.  Some are going under contract within a week or less.  You could also expect a buyer to ask for an average of 2% of the sales price in closing cost help.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in July and will detail sales from May and June.   Until then, if you are thinking of selling your Braemar Carriage home, give me a call for a free market analysis of your specific home’s value.  I’ve been a Braemar resident and full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent since 2005.  I added the distinction of being a Short Sale Agent in 2007.  No matter what your equity position, I can get your Braemar home sold for the maximum amount of money in the shortest period of time.  And most importantly…No one knows Braemar better!
