Braemar Townhouse Report:  May-June 2017
Not every agent that sells real estate in Braemar, keeps their finger on the pulse of the market.  One of the things I love about doing my Braemar market reports is that it keeps me informed of our neighborhood market to keep YOU informed about it.  And doing these reports since 2005 has really helped me understand what makes our neighborhood real market tick.  That knowledge I have acquired through constant compiling of Braemar real estate data makes selling my Braemar listings that much faster and more profitable for my sellers.
This particular report is the Braemar Townhouse Report. … (4 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  May-June 2017 (NV Homes)
The weather the last few days in Bristow, VA has felt sweltering.  High temps.  High humidity.  It makes being outside during the mid-afternoon unpleasant.  These are the dog days of summer and great days to spend at the Braemar community pools.  Of course, I'm still plugging away at my Braemar Property Value Reports.  Three more left to churn out and this NV Homes update in one of them, so let's get to it.
Between the months of May and June there were four NV Homes in Braemar that sold.   The details of those sales follow:

Braemar Property Values:  May-June 2017 (Heritage Series)
May and June have traditionally been months seeing the most real estate sales activity in Braemar.  This edition of the Braemar Property Value Report, focusing on sales in the Heritage Series, is not breaking that tradition.  
Before we get started, let's clarify what makes a home a Braemar Heritage home.  Heritage homes are the mid-sized single family homes, built by Brookfield Homes.  They have two car attached garages and include the following floor plans:  Exeter, Yardley, Zachery & Waverly.  Of course, Coscan, before they became Brookfield Homes, had some floor plans that crop up occasionally in the … (4 comments)

When it comes to writing Braemar Property Value Reports, perhaps the hardest part is coming up with the opening.  Facts and figures are easy to discuss, but coming up with a snazzy open to a market report takes some inspiration.  Having spent the last two days as the "crazy aunt" to two nieces, ages six and eight, I don't think my brain is quite ready for work again.  Of course, that could just be the abnormal amounts of sugar consumed while sharing meals with the nieces.  
Let's just kick this into gear and get to … (4 comments)

Happy Monday!  Did you know that Mondays are my favorite days of the week?  That hasn't always been the case.  It wasn't until I became a Bristow Real Estate Agent that I actually looked forward to the work week starting up again.   Funny what happens when you find what you were always meant to do.  For me, that's sell homes.  And my favorite homes to sell are those in our neighborhood of Braemar.
What first attracted my husband and I to Braemar was the curb appeal of the Carriage homes.  I still remember vividly driving … (4 comments)

Hard to believe, but I was just reading about a school supply drive.  Say it isn't so!  The kids have been out of school only a month.  Summer goes by so fast.  Hope you all are enjoying every minute of it.
Even though it is summer, which means we all get the opportunity to have a little more fun than usual, the job of this Braemar Real Estate remains the same.  It's my sworn duty to keep you up to date on the latest news in our neighborhood real estate market.  So today, let's talk about … (7 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  March-April 2017
After days of cloud cover and rain, I can honestly say that I would never last in the Pacific Northwest climate.  Sunshine is essential to my existence.  And I'm so happy to see the sun shining away in Bristow today.  Makes it very tempting to go outside and play hooky, but I'm not doing that.  Nope.  This Braemar Real Estate Agent knows that my fellow Braemar residents expect my market reports before the end of the month.  So here I am, putting out the last of May's reports with the March-April edition of the Braemar Townhouse Report.

It is Memorial Day Weekend in Braemar and it makes me proud to see so many homes displaying the American flag.  Some of our neighbors going the extra mile and putting miniature flags around the periemter of their front yard.  What a nice touch, as we approach a day of remembrance for those military members who lost their lives in the line of duty to our country.
There isn't much on the radar for this holiday weekend for this Braemar Real Estate Agent, except of course, keeping you informed about our Braemar real estate market.  In … (4 comments)

Cloudy days can be the best days for a busy Bristow Real Estate Agent like myself to get paperwork done... and market reports.  Today I'm working on my Braemar Property Value Reports.  This one focuses on sales activity for Courtyard Series homes.  Courtyard homes are one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have limited outdoor space.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.

Snow Day in Bristow, VA Means Delayed Settlement
When we were entering the fall in Bristow, I kept hearing about how a lot of the natural indicators were predicting a heavy snowfall for our area this winter.  One of those natural indicators was holly bushes with TONS more berries than normal.  To be honest, I forgot what the other natural indicator of lots of snowfall was.  Nonetheless, the predictions were made that 2016-2017's winter in Bristow, VA was going to be a snowy one.
The temperatures we milder than normal.  Shoot, some days I actually had to put on my A/C.  It was … (9 comments)

We have officially hit bitter cold winter temperatures.  I was out showing property this afternoon in Marshall, VA and I think I went numb.  When I say I was showing property, I mean land with no heated structure.  At this moment, I am quite content to be sitting in front of my computer, typing another Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly.  or those who aren't familiar with these types of home styles, Braemar Piggyback Townhouses are attached side-to-side and back-to-back.  While they do not offer back yards, they offer large bedrooms and a two car garage.  Braemar Patio Homes … (3 comments)

This weekend after Thanksgiving, I have seen a lot of holiday decorations going up in Braemar.  I've even seen some Christmas trees in windows.  Just when you think the rapid approach of night is getting you down, holiday lights make it not just bearable, but happy.  Let's enjoy them while we can,

In the next few days we will be seeing more motorcycles in the area as the annual Memorial Day Weekend tradition of Rolling Thunder nears.  Keep an eye out for motorcyclists when you are on the roads and keep a safe distance in traffic.

Spring has definitely hit the Braemar real estate market, but you may not know it after reading this Braemar Property Value Report for Arista Series homes in our neighborhood.  Before we get started, Arista Series homes are the large single family homes built by Brookfield Homes.  The floor plans are:  Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury. 
So you know what an Arista Series home in Braemar is, so what happened in January and February.  (Cue the crickets.)  Nothing.  Just like last report, not one Arista Series home sold.  However, since our market has been fairly stable in terms of value … (3 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  November-December 2015
It is time for another Braemar Townhouse Report.  This one will detail sales from the last two months of 2015.  Of course, your immediate reaction might be that nothing happens in the last two months of the year with the holidays, but you would be wrong.
There were six Braemar townhouses that sold in November and December.  The low sold price was $230,000.  The high sold price was $310,000.  Average all six and you get the new average market value for Braemar townhouses of $275,500.  This new average market value is down 4.5% since last report, and down … (2 comments)
