braemar real estate agent bristow va: Should I Hire a Neighborhood Expert When Selling? - 02/07/16 02:50 PM
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)

Braemar Property Values:  November-December 2015 (Heritage Series)
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)

Braemar Property Values:  November-December 2015 (Courtyard Series)
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)

Braemar Property Values:  November-December 2015 (Carriage Series)
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)

Braemar Reflection Quarterly:  October-December 2015
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)

Braemar Condo Quarterly:  October-December 2015
It finally felt like winter today with the small snowflakes falling from the sky.  Of course, the fourth quarter of 2015 brought exceptionally mild weather.  I don't ever remember having a Christmas with temps near seventy.
Right now, it is time for another Braemar Condo Quarterly.  This one is focusing on those last three months of 2015 as it pertains to Braemar condo sales.  
There were only two Braemar condos that sold in the fourth quarter of 2015 and they both happened in late October.  The high sold price was $260,000; the low, $245,000. Both of those numbers … (5 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  September-October 2015
If you ever thought there was a bad time of year to sell a townhouse in Braemar, this Braemar Townhouse Report will likely open your eyes to the possibilities of the fall market.  In this report we look back to sales of Braemar townhouses in September and October.  So without further delay, let's get to it.
There were eleven Braemar townhouses that sold between the beginning of September and the end of October.  The low sold price was $250,950 and the high sold price was $320,000.  That's quite a range, but there is a lot of variety of … (0 comments)

Today I decided to double up on my Braemar Property Value Reports.  I just posted one for the NV Homes. Now I'm doing one for the houses in the neighborhood built by Ryan Homes for the same reporting period.  I have to tell you, the news is the same.
There were no sales of any Ryan Homes in Braemar during September and October, just like September and October last year.  However, we do have the last average market value from July and August of $452,400...so at least we have more current information in the recent past. … (2 comments)

Am I the only one looking forward to Monday after this long holiday weekend?  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy holiday time with family and friends, but I also love routine.  Mid-week holidays always screw up my schedule.  Of course, I also love my job.  I know Mondays are synonymous with most people of going back to work.  For me, work is a way of life.  Selling Bristow-Gainesville real estate is a truly enjoyable way to earn a living.

It is a gray Saturday in Braemar.   And according to Accuweather, it's going to start raining in about 60 minutes.  That's what I love about Accuweather.  They commit to forecasts and they are rarely wrong.  They give me their expert forecast down to the minute and not leave the interpelation up to me.  That's what I do here with the Braemar Property Value Reports.  I compile the data and break it down for Braemar home owners.  Leave it to a full-time, top producing real estate agent like me to give you the low down on … (8 comments)

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving yesterday.  It was a gorgeous day to kick back and enjoy the company of friends and family.  Today, instead of braving the busiest shopping day of the year, I am churning out another Braemar Property Value Report.  This particular report is detailing sales of homes in the Courtyard Seires.   If you don't know what a Braemar Courtyard home is,  allow me to explain. Courtyard homes are one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have limited outdoor spaces.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.

As I type this Braemar Property Value Report it is the day before Thanksgiving.  I can just imagine the hustle and bustle going on inside the various homes in our community, prepping for tomorrow.  Some may be getting side dishes ready to take to a nearby gathering, others may be preparing for the big meal to be hosted at their homes.  And of course, there are those that may be packing up bags to travel a longer distance to see family.  No matter what you are doing, I hope you enjoy your holiday.

Instead of braving the grocery store two days before Thanksgiving, I am sitting at my desk putting together Braemar Property Value Reports.  There is little more frustrating than the grocery store derby that happens in the run-up to a major holiday.   It is an absolute frenzy.
So let's talk Braemar Property Values in the Arista Series homes.  Arista Series homes are the large, single family homes built by Brookfield Homes.  The floor plans are:  Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury.  
Unfortunately, there were no sales of Braemar Arista Series homes in September or October. That means I have no … (2 comments)

This is the third Braemar Reflection Quarterly report.  I started compiling stats on these homes after the first quarter of 2015 ended.  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.
Unfortunately, it seems that, like the Courtyard homes in Braemar, they make up a relatively small number of homes in our community that there are going to be times when absolutely nothing is happening.  This is one of those times.  
While no Reflection homes … (5 comments)

There is an excitement in the crisp fall air as we start to see Christmas decorations springing up around the neighborhood.  Thanksgiving is this week and I feel completely unprepared, but that's a good thing.  It means I've been busy selling Braemar homes.
Right now, it's time for the third quarter report for Braemar Piggyback and Patio homes.  We will make comparisons looking back to last report (April-June 2015) and last year (July-September 2014.)   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 … (4 comments)
