Braemar Reflection Series Quarterly:  January-March 2016
The beginning of the year was filled with all kinds of real estate sales activity in Braemar.  The spring selling season seemed to hit even before our last snow melted.  This particular report will look back at the first quarter of sales for the Reflection Series homes.  For those unaware, Reflection Series homes are located off of Tarvie Circle and are the semi-detached single family homes that are attached at the garage only.  There were two floor plans offered by Brookfield Homes:  Annan and Bromley.
Unlike the end of 2015 that saw only one sale, the beginning of 2016 saw … (5 comments)

Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly:  January-March 2016
It is time for another Braemar Piggyback and Patio Quarterly, giving an overview of home sales for the first quarter.  For clarification, 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 are also known as quads.  Each is attached at the side, back and corner to another Patio Home.  They have two levels, also offering large bedrooms and a modest side yard. 
 
PIGGYBACK
There were two Piggyback townhouses that sold between January and March.  The high sales price was $288,000, while the … (2 comments)

Braemar Condo Quarterly:  January-March 2016
The first quarter of 2016 is behind us, which means it is time to look back at the first three months of the year and see what happened to Braemar Condo values.  If you weren't aware the Braemar had condos, we do.  They look like townhouses.  Some have garages, others do not.   "Condo" simply refers to the type of ownership, which is far different from any other type of home in the community.  
You know you live in a Braemar condo if you pay condo fees to Barrhill at Inverness Village.  For instance, a condo's structure is … (4 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  January-February 2016
It is another gorgeous spring day in Braemar.  We had a little early morning rain, but nothing substantial.  Didn't even need my rain jacket when showing homes bright and early this morning.  This is the time of year when the real estate market begins a fever pitch.  Real estate agents like myself strap in and know that we will be swept up in the spring activity.
Right now, let's take a look back at what happened in the Braemar townhouse market during the first two months of the year, in this edition of the Braemar Townhouse Report.

Braemar Property Values:  January-February 2016 (Ryan Homes)
It is time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one is specifically for houses built by Ryan Homes in Braemar.  
There were four Ryan Homes that sold in the first two months of the year.  The low sold price was really low at $325,000.  The high sold price was $540,000.  Quite a difference between the bottom and top numbers.   The average of all four gives us our new average market value of $435,000 for Ryan Homes in Braemar.  That is nearly 7.5% lower than last report and 9% lower than last year.  Again, … (4 comments)

There is a sense of optimism in the air in Braemar.  The sun is shining.  The days are getting longer.  And finally, the warmer temperatures may be here to stay.  Looks like some rain is coming our way, so get out and enjoy this while you can.  
For now, it is time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one will detail sales of houses built by NV Homes in our neighborhood for the first two months of 2016.  So let's get to it.
There were two NV Homes that sold between January and February.  They … (5 comments)

If I had a screened in deck, I would have been perfectly happy to work on a lap top there today.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous.  Guess I'll have to give TB Contracting a call for a quote to build one for me.  For the time being, the covered front porch does nicely for an after work beverage.

Braemar Property Values:  January-February 2016 (Courtyard Series)
It is that time again.  Time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one is specifically for Braemar Courtyard homes and covers the first two months of the year.  If you don't know what a Braemar Courtyard home is, it is one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have extremely small outdoor spaces.  It is perfect for home owners who want a detached home, but not a large yard to maintain.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.
Because Courtyard homes make up such a small portion of the homes … (6 comments)

Mother Nature appeared to be bowling over our empty garbage cans with her wind gusts down the streets of Braemar on this first day of spring.  Nothing like a scheduled trash pick up to get those winds fired up.  I will tell you something that fires me up is Braemar Carriage homes.  In this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report we are going to see what happened with Carriage home values during the first two months of the year.  For those that may not know what I am talking about, Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of … (5 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  January-February 2016 (Arista Series)
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)

Should I Hire a Neighborhood Expert When Selling?
If you are selling a home in the community of Braemar, located in Bristow, VA, then there is a good chance you know who I am.  Braemar is a place I have called home since the start of 2005.  It is also a place where I have volunteered a lot of time and experience to the HOA.  In return for the time invested serving on the HOA, I have learned so much about our community.  Couple that with the experience of being a full-time real estate broker, well...it is safe to say I know a … (7 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)

What a difference one single day can make.  I'm referring, of course, to the near fifty degree temperatures we enjoyed in Bristow today that provided a lot of melting for the snow accumulation left by Jonas.  There is grass, mulch and asphalt under that snow and we saw that today.  Hooray.  In my giddiness about the melting snow, I nearly forgot to post this Braemar Property Value Report regarding the last two months of 2015 sales for NV Homes in our neighborhood.  Simply put, NV Homes are the single family homes built by NV Homes … (1 comments)

Are you tired of hearing about snow?  Well, you're in luck.  I have another Braemar Property Value Report to share with you.  This one focuses on sales in the Heritage Series homes in our neighborhood for the last two months of 2015.  Heritage Series homes, for those who may not be familiar, 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.
When it came to Braemar single family home sales in November and December, Heritage Series homes saw the most sales.  There … (4 comments)

Digging out from the blizzard of 2016 is turning out to be quite a chore.  Thought I'd take a break and pop in with another Braemar Property Value Report, detailing sales of homes in the Courtyard Series.  If you don't know what a Braemar Courtyard home is, it is one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have extremely small outdoor spaces.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.
As is often the case, only one Courtyard home in Braemar sold in the last two months of 2015.  It was a … (3 comments)

Since shoveling out of what we had so far of the blizzard 0f 2016 seems pointless, why not park myself at the computer and put together another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one details sales from the Carriage Series during the last two months of 2015.  Carriage homes, by the way, 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:  Maplewood, Norwood, Oakdale and Parkdale.
There were three sales of Braemar Carriage homes that sold in … (7 comments)

It is time for another Braemar Property Value Report, detailing sales of Arista Series homes in Braemar in the last two months of 2015.  In case you don't know what an Arista Series homes are,  they are the large, single family homes built by Brookfield Homes.  The floor plans are:  Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury.  
Unfortunately, like the previous report (September-October 2015) and last year (November-December 2015,) there were no sales to report in the Arista Series.  That leaves us with no information.  
 
Even though there were no sales to report in the Arista Series, there are Arista Series … (4 comments)

This is the fourth Braemar Reflection Quarterly Report.  Reporting started with the first quarter of 2015.  Reflection Series homes are located off of Tarvie Circle and are the semi-detached single family homes that are attached at the garage only.  There were two floor plans offered byBrookfield Homes:  Annan and Bromley.
Like the second and third quarters before, there were no sales of Reflection homes in Braemar to report for the fourth quarter of 2015.  
Despite the fact that no Reflection homes sold, there was one that had been on the market in the fourth quarter, priced at $439,900.  It … (3 comments)

Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly:  October-December 2015
Braemar may be getting its first snow this coming Friday.  The prediction I heard today was anywhere from two to twnety-four inches.  That gives the forecaster a large margin of error.  Of course, they are FOREcasting.  In the Braemar market reports I prepare, I am looking to the most recent sales to give you an idea where your home's value may fall in the future.  
This particular report will focus on the fourth quarter of 2015 and the Braemar Piggyback and Patio homes sold during that time.  We'll compare to last report (July-September 2015) and … (5 comments)
