Braemar Condo Quarterly: January-March 2022 (1st Quarter)

Braemar Condo Quarterly: January-March 2022 (1st Quarter)

If there is one thing that really bring me down, it is the weather; more specifically, rainy dreary conditions for multiple days in a row. The good news, is that our spring vegetation is getting plenty of hydration and a rainy day is a great day to stay inside and put together my Braemar market reports.

Today it is time for the Braemar Condo Quarterly. Some folks are not aware that they are condos in our community. Somehow, condos evoke an image of a building with multiple units per floor, like an apartment. Condos can be any type of structure. In the particular case of Braemar condos, ours are townhouses. What makes them condos is a shared form of ownership of the entire condo complex, which would include structures and common area.

During the first quarter of 2022, only one Braemar condo sold. I am sure more would have sold had they been on the market, but only one Braemar condo seller set out to list in the first quarter. Details of that sale are listed below.

Clearly the first quarter was a great time to list. This seller got $26,000 above their list price and gave no seller subsidy (closing cost help.) This is also a case where the home was never active for buyers to see. Rather, the buyer wrote a sight unseen offer. You can read my thoughts on sight unseen offers by clicking the link in the last sentence.

When the first quarter of 2022 sales are combined with the second, third and fourth quarter sales of 2021, one year’s worth of Braemar condo sales give me the opportunity to update our six and twelve month data points. From here we can spot market trends.

Starting in the sold price column, we see the six month average sold price has fallen slightly below the twelve month average sold price. Meanwhile, the median sold price in both six and twelve month values is the same. Seems that while we are still in a seller’s market, Braemar condo values are holding steady in value. No dramatic increases in value at this time.

Seller subsidy is zero in all but the twelve month average. That comes from three out of eleven Braemar condo sellers giving closing cost help in the past twelve months. It’s been a long time since I have seen an offer of seller subsidy from a seller. The way these credits usually come about is part of the initial offer presented by buyer. Having a listing agent that may not realize these requests are off base in our current market could hurt a seller. It does matter who you hire to list your home.

Marketing time is six days in all but the twelve month average value. In that case, the marketing time is only two days longer. Braemar condos are selling fast.

If you placed your Braemar condo on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in a week or less. You could also expect to sell without having to give seller subsidy. With the sales I have handled to date in 2022, no listings have had to undergo appraisal contingencies or inspection contingencies.

The next Braemar Condo Quarterly will be out in July. Until then, if you would like to talk over what a 2022 sale might mean for you, reach out to me for a no obligation consultation. As a home owner here myself, selling Braemar real estate is my pride and joy. And with my seventeen years of experience in listing preparation, professional marketing and negotiation, my sellers get every penny out of the market…even a seller’s market. Don’t leave your outcome to chance and rely solely on market conditions. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Condo Quarterly: October-December 2021 (4th Quarter)

Braemar Condo Quarterly: October-December 2021 (4th Quarter)

It’s the last day of 2021 and the possibilities of 2022 are around the corner. Today it is time for me to begin tying up the remains of 2021. It starts in this edition of the Braemar Condo Quarterly where I will present the sales activity we saw from October to the end of December and how Braemar Condo values fared in 2021.

If you are new to this report, it may come as a surprise that Braemar has condos at all. Often times, hearing the word “condo” brings to mind apartment style units. Condo is less about the style of the home and more about the type of ownership. The condos present in Braemar are townhouse style dwellings that are registered with the State Corporation Commission as condo group ownership. While it is typically the case that condo ownership means caring only for the inside of your dwelling, Braemar Condo owners have the entire dwelling to maintain. The type of ownership mainly affects what time of loans a buyer can use to purchase and how the common area owned by the condo is maintained. And unlike traditional fee simple ownership, the condo association in Braemar can dictate whether improvements to the interior of the townhouse can be made by owners. One element of condo ownership is the common insurance to the structure by the condo association. As such, condo associations have a say in what happens inside a condo dwelling.

Now that you know more about what makes up a condo, let’s see the sales activity for Braemar Condos in the fourth quarter of 2021.

While there are both Braemar Condos with and without garages, the three sales that happened in the fourth quarter all had garages. Final sold prices ranged from $350,000 to $367,000. All but one of them sold for no more than their list price. The sale highlighted in pink is one in which I had a hand, guiding a colleague through their first transaction. While it did have the highest days on market, it also was the only one that sold above list price. The first offer the seller got was list price, and as a former For Sale By Owner, he did not want to settle for just list price. While he did not reject the offer out right, he agreed to take another look at it in a week if it was the only offer on the table. By then, it was bested by a higher offer. As my colleague learned, the first offer is not always the best.

When the most recent sales are combined with all of the Braemar Condo sales for 2021, the six and twelve month data points collected in this report are updated as seen below.

Starting with the sold price column, we see the six month average is slightly above the twelve month average. Meanwhile, the six and twelve month median sold price are identical. The growth rate for Braemar Condo values is definitely easing up, compared to what we saw last report.

The seller subsidy column shows a continued trend with both median values being at zero. This means that in both the six month and twelve month time frames, more than half of Braemar Condo sellers gave no closing cost help. Perhaps equally good news is that the six and twelve month average seller susidy figures have come down compared to what we saw last report.

Finally, the days on market column reveals a slight uptick in the amount of time it takes Braemar Condos to go under contract. Both the six month values are higher than their respective twelve month values. Not a big deal when taken in the context that the highest number of days on market in recent sales of eleven days was still under two weeks and ultimately netted an above list price offer.

If you placed your Braemar Condo on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in less than two weeks. You could also expect to give nothing in closing cost help. Finally, you will need to be aware of what loans will not work with the current state of lapsed HUD approval for Barr Hill at Inverness Village Condos. Those are details that professionals like myself can help you through in the sales process.

A successful home sale in any market condition starts with buyer enthusiasm, brought to a peak with professional marketing. There is only money to be left on the table when professional marketing and listing preparation are left out of the mix. Take it from the former For Sale By Owner at 12516 Heykens. He was listed all by himself for the same list price for several weeks. It wasn’t until he hired a professional that his home got the listing prepartion advice he so badly needed and benefited from the professional marketing that made up for the cost of hiring an agent to begin with.

The next Braemar Condo Quarterly will be out in April. Until then, when the need or desire to sell your condo arises, get in touch for a no obligation market analysis. The market of 2021 is not what we are likely to see continue through 2022 with record low interest rates predicted to increase incrementally throughout the year. However, you still have a chance for record high prices if you act before we see the cooling off of buyer demand. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Condo Quarterly: July-September 2021 (3rd Quarter)

Braemar Condo Quarterly: July-September 2021 (3rd Quarter)

Seems I was just typing up the Braemar Condo Quarterly for the second quarter of this year. My goodness does time fly. It is most certainly time for another look at the Braemar Condo market in this edition of the Braemar Condo Quarterly, which looks back at sales from the third quarter. Braemar condos may look like traditional townhouses, but they are registered with the State Corporation Commission as a condominium. These condos are located on Caithness, Lord Lovat, Heykens and Moxleys Ford.

There were three Braemar Condos that sold between the beginning of July and end of September. Those sales are detailed below:

Unlike like our last report that had sales ranging from $340,000 to $380,000, there is less deviation in sold price among these three sales. Also, unlike last report where seller subsidy (closing cost assistance from seller to buyer) was not present at all, each sale in the third quarter gave some amount of seller subsidy. Let’s dig deeper to see how our market is evolving. That is done by looking at the six and twelve month data points for sold price, seller subsidy and days on market.

Starting with sold price, it seems the growth rate for Braemar Condos has slowed. While both the six month average and six month median are higher than their respective twelve month values, the difference is not as dramatic as it was in the second quarter. Average growth in six months in the second quarter measured 11% and is now at 3%. Median six month growth in the second quarter measured 18% and is now 2/10th of 1%. Bear in mind, the third quarter had a big influx of inventory from sellers that were thinking summer vacation from school was a great time to list. Little did they realize that summer vacation itself was more important to many buyers who stepped out of what had been a frenzied market to relax this summer. July and August are usually the most challenging months to sell every year for the same reason. Last year’s pandemic just made vacations irrelevant so we didn’t experience the summer lag.

Looking at seller subsidy we see an increase in the six month average over the twelve month value. Both median values are the same at zero. However, if the third quarter trends continue into the fourth quarter, the six month median will no longer be zero. Only time is going to tell where we land there. In my personal experience helping a Braemar Condo seller, I am not seeing requests for seller subsidy in the fourth quarter so far, but that’s just one sale.

When it comes to days on market, or marketing time as I like to refer to it, the six month average days on market is only two days shorter than the twelve month average. The sale that is making that six month average higher is the one represented above in the third quarter sales that took twenty-nine days. Meanwhile, the six and twelve month median are identical at six days.

If you placed your Braemar condo on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect to be under contract in about a week or so. You could also expect that seller subsidy may be requested in some part by your buyer. Finally, you should be aware that the Barr Hill at Inverness Village Condo has lost its HUD certification. It expired and according to management, there is no intention of renewing it at this time. It was preparing a Braemar Condo owner for sale when this information came to light. This means that buyers with FHA loans will not qualify to purchase a Braemar condo.

The next Braemar Condo Quarterly will be out in January. Until then, when the need or desire to sell your Braemar Condo arises, understand that the agent you hire to list your condo matters to your bottom line. Hiring an agent that knows how to create buyer enthusiasm to elevate your price, knows the neighborhood and the ins and outs of the condo association will set the stage for the most profitable sale. Get in touch with me and find out what a neighborhood expert with professional marketing skills, can do for you. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Condo Quarterly: April-June 2021 (2nd Quarter)

Braemar Condo Quarterly: April-June 2021 (2nd Quarter)

The second quarter of the Braemar real estate market is behind us, but it feels like it just started. Time is flying past in this insane seller’s market. In this edition of the Braemar Condo Quarterly I will go over the sales from the second quarter and give you six and twelve month break outs of average and median values to see how our Braemar Condo market is faring. Let’s get right to it.

There were four Braemar Condos that sold in the second quarter. The details of those sales are listed below:

In the second quarter sales, we have a nice collection of varioius Braemar condos. Those with and without garages, two and three bedroom models, and interior and exterior models. Sold prices ranged from $340,000 to $380,000. What does that mean in the grand scheme of things? Let’s take a look at our six and twelve month data points.

The six month average sold price and six month median sold price are both MUCH higher than their respective twelve month values. This means that Braemar Condos have been gaining values in the last six months. And will likely continue to increase if the buyer demand holds up.

It is no surprise to see seller subsidy (closing cost assistance from seller to buyer) at zero in both six month values. The only value that has a bit of seller subsidy is the twelve month average. Even at a little over $1,800, it is isn’t much. Buyers are having to forego many requests, including cost cost assistance, to win in multiple offer situations.

Days on market shows stability, with only the twelve month average of seven days falling to five days in the six month average. It is continuing to take about a week or less to sell a Braemar Condo.

If you placed your Braemar Condo on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in less than a week. You could also expect to land a buyer with no need of seller subsidy.

The next Braemar Condo Quarterly will be out in October. Until then, if you have been considering the sale of your Braemar Condo, get in touch with me. Having your property well prepared and professionally marketed is what creates the buyer enthusiasm that drives up demand and prices…even in a seller’s market. It is what I have been doing for Braemar sellers for many years. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Condo Quarterly: January-March 2021 (1st Quarter)

Braemar Condo Quarterly: January-March 2021 (1st Quarter)

Being well into the second quarter of 2021, we can now take a look back at the sales activity from the first quarter of 2021 and see what happened in the Braemar Condo resale market. The first quarter covers the months of January through March.

Unfortunately, there were absolutely no Braemar Condos that listed or sold. It’s been a scarce market for buyers who are ready, willing and able.

Having no sales to report doesn’t mean we don’t get an updated look at values. The first quarter of 2020 drops from our year’s worth of data and the six and twelve month data points are refreshed as seen below.

Starting with the sold price column, exactly what I would expect to see is happening. The six month average and six month median sold prices are both above their respective twelve month values. This means that Braemar Condo values are continuing to increase. By the time we see the next sale of a Braemar Condo, I would not be surprised if it were around $350,000.

In the seller subsidy column we see what closing cost help buyers requested and sellers agreed to pay. The $500 present in the six month average and median is very low, particularly compared to the twelve month average seller subsidy. What is typical in sales happening right now is zero closing cost help.

Days on market shows a tad longer time frame than I would have anticipated in the six month numbers. What is present in the twelve month figures seems more like what we would see in a current Braemar Condo sale if we had current sales playing into those six month figures.

If you placed your Braemar Condo on the market, priced to current conditions, you could reasonably expect to be under contract within a week and pay nothing in seller subsidy.

The next Braemar Condo Quarterly will be out in July. Until then, if you have been considering the sale of your Braemar Condo in this unprecedented seller’s market, who you hire to list your home matters. Listing preparation and professional marketing are what elevates buyer enthusiasm and wrings the absolute maximum out of buyers looking to purchase. Get in touch with me and let’s discuss what might need to be done to prepare your Braemar Condo for sale. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Condo Quarterly: October-December 2020 (4th Quarter)

Braemar Condo Quarterly: October-December 2020 (4th Quarter)

Happy New Year! The much anticipated 2021 is here and there is hope that things will soon get back to some sort of normal. For now, however, nothing has changed except the date. Same for the Braemar real estate market. We are still experiencing extremely low inventory and high buyer demand. Let’s take a look at how that has affected Braemar Condo values in this edition of the Braemar Condo Quarterly, which focuses on the fourth quarter activity of 2020.

To start, there were only two Braemar Condos that sold during the fourth quarter. Our already low inventory dwindled to nothing as the end of the year approached. The details of the two Braemar Condo sales from the fourth quarter are listed below.

Taking these two sales and combining them the entire year’s worth of Braemar Condo sales, our updated six and twelve month data points give us an idea as to how the real estate market has been faring.

The sold price column shows us that the six month average sold price is almost exactly $2,000 than the twelve month average sold price. Meanwhile, the six month median and twelve month median sold prices are the same. There is still growth in Braemar Condo values and likely will be for the foreseeable future.

Seller subsidy is the column where we learn how much closing cost help buyers negotiated in their contracts with sellers. It is a bit surprising, given the intense competition buyers are facing, that the six month average seller subsidy is higher than the twelve month average, as well as the six month median being higher than the twelve month median. However, looking at the two most recent Braemar Condo sales, only one of them gave any seller subsidy and the one that did give it gave a very low amount at $1,000. Likely something negotiated in lieu of home inspection repairs from my experience.

Days on market also has an increase, though very slight, in both the six month values compared to their respective twelve month values. Some of this may have to do with the thirty-one day marketing time of one of the more recent sales. That long of a time frame is unusual.

If you placed your Braemar Condo on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in about a week. You could also expect to give less than 1% of the sales price in seller subsidy, if any at all.

The next Braemar Condo Quarterly will be out in April. Until then, if you find yourself ready to place your Braemar Condo on the market, get in touch with me for the most accurate assessment of your condo’s value in today’s market. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Condo Quarterly: July-September 2020 (3rd Quarter)

Braemar Condo Quarterly: July-September 2020 (3rd Quarter)

Fall has arrived, and with it, the opportunity to look back on the Braemar condo market and see what happened in the third quarter of this unusual year. In keeping with every Braemar Condo Quarterly I have published to date, let’s start with the sales from the third quarter, which are seen below.

In the six sales that happened in the third quarter, five of them were on Caithness Circle. It is an odd happenstance when a handful of neighbors outgrown their homes and sell in a couple weeks or months of each other. If you notice that one sale of the six is highlighted in pink, that’s because it was my listing. What’s not seen here is that my sellers were able to negotiate a two month rent back which saved their bacon and allowed them to not have to move to temporary housing while shopping for their next home. That type of contractual win is worth a lot of money and aggravation for move up sellers in this intense seller’s market with very limited inventory.

When taking this six Braemar condo sales and combining them with the previous three quarters worth of sales, we get a complete year’s worth of data. Our updated six and twelve month markers (seen below) give us indications as to where our market is heading.

Looking first at the sold price column, we see that both the six month average and six month median sold prices are above their respective twelve month values. This means that Braemar condos, like just about everything else in this market, continue to climb in value.

Seller subsidy is where we get to find out how much closing cost help sellers gave to Braemar condo buyers. It is not a surprise to see that in the six month values, compared to the twelve month values, show that seller subsidy is decreasing. Out of the six month recent sales listed above, four of them gave seller subsidy. Some of that may have been requested in their initial offer, or in the case of some sales, may be credits given at the time of home inspection. My sale, for instance, had a buyer not asking for any closing cost assistance. At the time of home inspection, the age and condition of the roof became a real concern. The buyer had asked for a lot more than the actual cost of the roof. Thankfully, my sellers were able to get a quote from a roofer and counter with a reasonable seller subsidy for the buyer to take care of replacing the roof during their ownership period.

Finally we get to days on market, or marketing time as I like to call it. Both the six month average and six month median marketing times are identical, showing four days to get under contract. The only one longer is the twelve month average marketing time. Braemar condos are getting eaten up quickly by buyers in the market.

If you placed your Braemar condo on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in less than a week, maybe even a couple of days. You could also expect, because you are likely dealing with first time buyers with limited cash on hand, to give some closing cost help.

The next Braemar Condo Quarterly will be out in January and will show us how the Braemar condo market closed out the year. Until then, know that if the sale of your Braemar condo is looming on the horizon, the year end market is a powerful one. There are still serious buyers, but even fewer selllers this time of year. Give me a call and see what a year end sale may mean for you. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Condo Under Contract in Only Two Days!!

Braemar Condo Under Contract in Only Two Days!!

The demand for entry level housing in Braemar is astounding.  And while this two bedroom, one and a half bathroom condo at 12175 Caithness Circle hit the market on July 24th (2020,)  priced at $305,000 and had only three showings, it only takes one buyer to make a deal.  Just as important as price, is buyer flexibility when you are not only selling, but attempting to buy another home in this inventory limited market.

The sellers had done their prep and it paid off.  New paint, new carpet, new appliance and new windows.  That, in addition to having a new water heater, new HVAC, updated luxury vinyl plank flooring on the main level and granite counters in the kitchen made an attractive proposition to buyers.

I’ll keep you posted on final sold price for this Braemar condo.  In the meantime, if you have a Braemar condo, townhouse or single family home to sell, give me a call to get it done quickly and for the best terms for you.  Since 2005 No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Condo Quarterly: April-June 2020 (2nd Quarter)

Braemar Condo Quarterly: April-June 2020 (2nd Quarter)

Summer is definitely here, and as usual, it is hot and humid.  And during these hot and humid months, our Bristow real estate market usually slows a bit.  Not this year!  Our market is crazy busy.  Sellers are cleaning up and buyers are frantic to get a home.  This Braemar Condo Quarterly value report will cover the sales activity in the second quarter, which are the months of April, May and June.

There were five Braemar condos that sold in the second quarter.  The details of those sales are listed below:

Taking these five sales during the second quarter of 2020 and combining them with the sales in the three quarters previous, we get an entire year’s worth of sales data.  Here are the updated six and twelve month data points:

Starting with the sold price column, we see what I would expect to see.  Both the six month average and six month median sold prices are above their respective twelve month values.  Braemar condos are gaining value.

The seller subsidy column is where we see how much closing cost help Braemar condo sellers are giving in their sales.  Again, not surprising to see that seller subsidy in the six month values is below their respective twelve month values.  Even in the five sales we see itemized above, there was only one buyer out of five that got any closing cost help at all.  Clearly, now is the market where Braemar condo sellers can truly maximize profit.

Finally, looking at days on market, we see the average and median marketing time in the six month values is only three days.  That’s below the twelve month average marketing time of seventeen days and below the twelve month median marketing time of six days.  Braemar condos are flying off the shelves.

If you placed your Braemar condo on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in days.  You could also expect you may get a buyer that will forego a closing cost help request.

The next Braemar Condo Quarterly will be out in October.  Until then, if you have a Braemar condo you want to sell, give me a call.  I will be happy to put my years of experience in our market to work for you.  And if you are buyer looking for a Braemar condo, I will have hitting the market very soon.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Property Value Report: November-December 2019 (Carriage Series)

Braemar Property Value Report: November-December 2019 (Carriage Series)

Winter was definitely feeling a bit too mild there at the turn of the New Year.  With today’s wintery mix, Mother Nature sends us a reminder of what she can throw our way.  I’ll be staying inside the comfort of my own Braemar home today and sharing with you the latest Braemar Property Value Report for the Carriage Series homes in our neighborhood.  For those unfamiliar, Carriages homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage. When these homes have a garage, it is detached and sits in back of the home.  The floor plans, from smallest to largest, are: Maplewood,  Norwood,  Oakdale and  Parkdale.

There were two Braemar Carriage homes that sold during the last two months of 2019, and I am very pleased to have represented the sellers of one of those sales, 13236 Daldownie Court.  That’s the reason that sale is highlighted in pink, in the details of those two sales below.

Taking these two most recent sales and combining with all the Carriage home sales from 2019, we get updated six and twelve month data points that clue us in as to what is happening in our marketplace.

Let’s start by looking at the sold price column.  Here we see that the six month average sold price is slightly lower than the twelve month average sold price.  Meanwhile, the six month median sold price is higher than the twelve month median sold price.  At worst, Braemar Carriage home values are stable, but just the knowledge I have from dealing with the sale of 13236 Daldownie, they seem to be increasing in value.

Next up we see that the seller subsidy figures (closing cost assistance to buyers) is higher in both the six month average and median compared their twelve month counterparts.  This means Braemar buyers have been asking for, and receiving, more closing cost help in recent sales.

Finally, days on market shows mixed data.  The six month average marketing time is five days shorter than the twelve month average marketing time.  Meanwhile, the six month median marketing time is three days longer the twelve month median marketing time.  These aren’t big changes either way, so for now we can call marketing time stable.

If you placed your Braemar Carriage home on the market, priced to current conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in about two weeks time.  (Of course, if you hire me to be your Listing Agent, you may be under contract in a lot less time, judging by the three day marketing time achieved on 13236 Daldownie.)  As for seller subsidy, you could expect to pay about 1.5% of the sales price in closing cost help.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in March and show us how we started 2020.  Until then, if you have been thinking that the 2020 spring market may be the time for you to sell your Braemar Carriage home, don’t wait for Mother Nature’s version of spring.  The Braemar spring real estate market comes to life a lot earlier than the flowers, trees and grass.  Give me a call to find out how to maximize your profit when you sell.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
