Braemar Property Values:  July-August 2017 (Heritage Series)
What a crummy day.  Nothing but dreary skies and rain.  Of course, these crappy weather days are great for putting together local real estate market reports.   Today I am working on the Braemar Property Value Report for Heritage Series homes in Braemar.  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.  
There were five Braemar Heritage homes that sold between the months of July and August.  The sales are detailed below:

While the fall solstice may not be until September twenty-second this year, it certainly felt like fall as soon as we entered September.  The chill in the air reminds me of back to school time, even decades after graduating high school.  Even driving to a listing appointment this afternoon I noticed some early autumn leaves blowing around.  You may think fall is a slow time of year for Bristow real estate, but I'm here to tell you it is what I call our "second spring."  
Right now, we are going to look back at the … (2 comments)

For some reason, this doesn't feel like a holiday weekend to me.  Maybe it is because I haven't fired up the grill and done the American classic holiday weekend meal--hot dogs and hamburgers.  The sunshine outside today is certainly inviting me to come on out and enjoy.  
Before I finish work and head for the grill, it is time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one will focus on sales of Braemar Carriage homes in July and August.  Braemar Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage. When these homes have a garage, … (2 comments)

Labor Day weekend certainly didn't get off to a sunny start yesterday.  The drizzling rain made it fairly miserable.  Seems you will have a chance to enjoy the last days of the Braemar pool season today and tomorrow though.  
Right now, it is time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one is focused on Arista Series home sales in Braemar.  Arista Series homes are the large, single family homes built by Brookfield Homes.  The floor plans include the Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury.   
Unlike last report when we had no recent sales to report, we have one … (2 comments)

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)

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:

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.
There were two Braemar Courtyared home sales between January and February.  The lowest sales price was $399,900.  The highest sales price was $415,000. They were both Ballston models.  One seller gave … (1 comments)

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)
