Braemar Reflection Quarterly:  April-June 2015
This is the second Braemar Reflection Quarterly report.  The month after each quarter ends, this report will be published to show activity in Reflection Series homes.  What's a Reflection Series home?  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, there were no Reflection Series homes that sold in between April and June 2015.  And judging from the one and only sale in the first quarter of $375,000, it is no … (4 comments)

Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly:  April-June 2015
Has anyone else noticed how relatively mild our summer has been in Bristow?  Sure, there have been days of extreme heat and humidity that makes you feel you are in a sauna, but there have been a lot of mild days for July.  Today, for instance, I didn't notice any humidity.  Eighty-eight degrees feels totally different with low humidity.
As far as real estate in our community of Braemar has been concerned, the activity has been fairly low key.  Buyer demand is not the insane pace it was last year, so we are experiencing a more … (5 comments)

Braemar Condo Quarterly:  April-June 2015
The second quarter of 2015 is behind us and it is time to take a look back at the Braemar real estate market and see how our condo values did between April and June.  With only one sale in the first quarter of 2015, things have to have picked up.  So without further delay, let's get to it.
Thankfully, there were a number of sales to report for the second quarter where Braemar condos are concerned.  There were three sales.  And oddly enough, all three sales were for the exact same amount:  $250,000.  That means an increase in … (4 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  March-April 2015
Summer is officially here...or at least it feels like it since the Braemar pools opened.  It didn't even occur to me to get my pool pass, and more importantly, my guest pass.   When I accompanied my young house guests to Clareybrook Park on Sunday, it was hard to explain why we couldn't go inside where everyone was splashing and having fun.  Lesson learned.  Get pool passes!
Enough about the beginning of summer.  Let's talk about the beginning of spring and what it meant to the Braemar townhouses in this edition of the Braemar Townhouse Report.  
There were fourteen townhouses … (4 comments)

This is one of my favorite times of the year to live in Braemar.  Not only is the community beautiful in its spring blooms, but the smell of honeysuckle permeates the air, especially in the evenings.  It is calming, and as a busy Braemar Real Estate Agent, calming is exactly what I need this time of year.  That said, let's get to this Braemar Property Value Report, detailing sales of houses built by Ryan Homes in Braemar for the months of March and April.  
There were two Ryan Homes that in March and April.  They … (3 comments)

Hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day Weekend here in Braemar.  The shortage of hot dogs and hamburgers at the local grocery stores tells me that most folks celebrated with a cookout.  Was a perfect weekend for it.
Right now, it's time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This one will details sales of homes, built by NV Homes, during the months of March and April.  
There were two NV Homes that sold in March and April.  One was a Rutherford, the other a Brandenburg.  Both were located on Arthur Graves Jr. Court.  And oddly enough, they … (2 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  March-April 2015 (Heritage Series)
The spring real estate market in Braemar has been very busy.  Buyers were out even before we were done with the cold and snow.  In this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report, we will look back at the months of March and April and see what happened to values in the Heritage Series.  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.
There nine sales of Heritage Series homes between March … (2 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  March-April 2015 (Courtyard Series)
While we've been enjoying spring weather lately in Braemar, the overcast skies and drizzly rain made today a bit cooler.  Driving in the inclement weather was down right unpleasant on the highway, but thankfully, doing the majority of my work in Braemar, I rarely have to hit the highways.
Let's take a look back at the Braemar real estate market, specifically, as it pertains to Courtyard homes.  Of course, 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 … (9 comments)

Braemar is in bloom.  The neighborhood is awash in the colors of spring.  It's no wonder home owners love to sell this time of year.  This is the peak of curb appeal.  Speaking of curb appeal, let's take real estate.
This Braeamar Property Value Report will cover the sales of Braemar Carriage homes in the months of March and April.    Carriage homes 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 … (4 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  March-April 2015 (Arista Series)
When we first entered spring, I don't know about you, but I thought I might have lost a couple of trees and some flowers in my garden due to the brutal winter temps.  There were some late bloomers, but they all made it and are now coming out in vibrant color.  It's so nice to see Braemar in bloom.
Right now, we're going to look back to the start of the spring market in the Arista Series, which are the larger single family homes built by Brookfield Homes and includes the Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury models.  This report … (8 comments)

Braemar Reflection Series Quarterly:  January-March 2015
In an effort to include property value updates for ALL types of Braemar homes, I am adding this Reflection Series report which will be compiled quarterly.  Reflection Series homes in Braemar are easy to locate and identify.  They 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.  
This first edition of the Braemar Reflection Series Quarterly, there is only one sale to report.  It was a Short Sale of the former builder's model.  It … (5 comments)

Braemar Piggyback & Patio Quarterly:  January-March 2015
The first quarter of 2015 is behind us and it was extremely busy.  Of course, this report may not reflect that because we can only sell what is on the market.  Many Braemar sellers wait until spring to put their homes on the market.  
Let's take a look at what happened in the first three months of the year with Braemar Piggyback and Patio homes.  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 … (8 comments)

Braemar Condo Quarterly:  January-March 2015
The first quarter of 2015 started with a bang and hasn't slowed down in the Bristow real estate market.  Buyer demand has been incredible.  Of course, we can only sell the homes that come on the market, and sometimes lack of inventory is a problem.  Let's see what happened with Braemar condos during the first quarter of the year.
Just like the first quarter of last year, there was only one Braemar condo that sold.  For some reason, Braemar sellers seem to like to wait until spring, though buyers were out in full force in January.  The sold … (2 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  January-February 2015
Having a Braemar townhouse listing during the snow storms, I know how glad all Braemar townhouse owners must be that the snow is behind us.  There's nothing quite like spending thirty minutes digging out your car from a common area space and coming back to see someone else enjoying the clear space.  Such is life in the winter in a townhouse.
Right now it is time for another Braemar Townhouse Report, looking back at sales during the first two months of year.  There were only four sales of Braemar townhouses in January and February, which actually … (4 comments)

It's spring break and I hope you are doing something fun with your family.  Me?  I'm doing what I'm always doing, keeping an eye on the Braemar, and overall Bristow, real estate market to be the best real estate agent I can be for my clients.  That also means compiling market reports.  This particular Braemar Property Value Report covers the first two months of 2015 and resales of homes in Braemar built by Ryan Homes.
There wree two Ryan homes that sold between January and February.  Their final sold prices were $445,500 and $510,000. … (2 comments)

Even though not much is blooming, after the harsh winter we had, just having temps in the mid-50's and low 60's feels like spring in Braemar.  Right now, I'm keeping a watchful eye on a new tree I had planted at the end of fall last year.  It's either a late bloomer or the winter killed it.  Time will tell.
Right now, let's take a look back at resales of NV Homes in Braemar for the first two months of the year in this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report.

Having one Yardley model on the market in Braemar at the beginning of the year, I've been paying particular attention to Heritage Series homes that come on the market.  Somewhere around the beginning of March, spring hit the sellers of these homes right in the gut and these homes were popping up everywhere.  For now, let's take a look back at the first two months of the year in this Braemar Property Value Report and see what happened to Heritage Series home values.  Heritage Series homes, for those who may not be familiar, are the mid-sized … (7 comments)
