Braemar Property Values:  May-June 2017 (Carriage Series)
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)

Braemar Property Values:  March-April 2017 (Carriage Series)
Another overcast weekend day is making for the perfect opportunity for this Braemar Real Estate Agent to update you on Braemar home values.  This particular report focuses on sales activity for Braemar Carriage homes in March and April.   Braemar Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage. When these homes have a garage, 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 six sales of Braemar Carriage homes between the beginning of March and end of April.  
Two of the six sales … (5 comments)

A rainy day in Bristow is a great time to sit down in front of my computer and tell you all about the Braemar real estate market.  It is Braemar Property Value Report time, after all.  And in this report, we are going to focus on sales in the first two months of the year in the Carriage Series.  Braemar Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage. When these homes have a garage, it is detached and sits in back of the home.  The floor plans, from smallest to largest, are: Maplewood,  Norwood,  Oakdale and  Parkdale.

It was another gorgeous fall day in Bristow today.  Who would expect it to feel like it was near seventy degrees in mid-November?  If you weren't able to enjoy it, you will have a chance tomorrow.   Except for a few showers, it should be much the same.  For now, let's get to what we're here for--the latest news on Braemar Property Values.  This report will focus on the Carriage Series homes.  Braemar Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage.

The Braemar pools are closed and school is back in season.  That means fall is here, though it doesn't quite feel like it yet.  Of course, before we know what the fall real estate market in Braemar will yield home sellers, we have yet to look back at the last two months of the summer 2016 market.  This particular Braemar Property Value Report will focus on Carriage home sales in July and August.  Before we begin, let's start with a definition of  a Braemar Carriage home.  Braemar Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an … (4 comments)

Even though we are enjoying some much needed sunshine today in Braemar, it is tempered with some rather threatening looking clouds in the sky.  Before the end of the day I have a feeling we are going to experience a thunderstorm.  Thank goodness our forecast has some consecutive days of sunshine starting tomorrow.  
Right now, it is time for another Braemar Property Value Report.  This particular edition examines activity in the months of March and April for Carriage homes.  For those that may be wondering, Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage. Rather, … (3 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)

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.

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.

So happy to be enjoying the beginning of the fall season.  It's my favorite time of the year.  It's also a great time of year to sell a Braemar home.  Fall is like a second spring market.  Right now we will take a look back at the last two months of summer and see how Braemar Carriage homes fared in this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report. Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage.

Let me start with an apology to my regular readers.  This Braemar Property Value Report is a little later than normal.  For the first time in years, I took a week off during the summer.  And of course, any real estate agent will tell you, as soon as you start the vacation, business goes nuts.  So getting back to work mean doing double time.
This particular Braemar Property Value Report will cover sales of Braemar Carraige homes from May and June.   Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage.  Rather, if they have … (3 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.

To say that the spring real estate market hit way earlier than the actual spring season is an understatement.  When we hit January, it seemed the doors blew off the Braemar real estate market.  And the sellers that got out during the first two months of the year benefited.  In the edition of the Braemar Property Value Report we'll take a look at the first two months of the year with respect to Carriage homes. Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of an attached garage.  Rather, if they have a garage at all, it … (3 comments)

The perfect accent to a Braemar Carriage home is a nice dusting of snow.  Nothing makes these homes look more quaint than snow.  So far this winter, we've had three dustings that gives our Braemar Carriage homes that complete that Christmas tree village look.  It was actually December 2004 when my husband and I drove through Braemar, and the quaint factor of the Carriage homes, had us ready to move.

The holiday season seems to be sneaking up on me.  Seems like just yesterday I was lamenting the end of summer.  It is easy to get lost in time when you are a Braemar real estate agent though.  Running comps for listings and market reports like these, I am looking back to stats a lot.

My favorite property types to report values for in our fair neighborhood of Braemar are the Carriage homes.  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. 
Braemar Carriage homes have the most activity, outside of townhouses, in our market.  In fact, as of the time of this report, I have two Maplewood Carriage homes listed for sale:  12443 Iona Sound Drive for $325,000 and 13790 Tartan … (4 comments)

Another Braemar Carriage Home Under Contract!
Listing property in my own neighborhood of Braemar is a special treat for me.  This listing of a Parkdale model Carriage home was no exception.  It hit the market on August 25, 2013 priced at $379,000, which according to stats I ran for the latest installment of Braemar Property Values for Carriage homes was 107% higher than the average market value.
That same report indicated that Carriage homes average about 34 days on the market.  Not this one!  It was under contract in 22 days.  That's 35% faster than the average marketing time.

Thoughts are quickly turning to fall in Braemar.  The pool is closed and school is back in session.  Yet before we close the book completely on summer, let's look back at the last two months of it and see how the Braemar Carriage home values fared.  Of course, if you don't know what a Braemar Carriage home is, they are characterized by the lack of attached garage.  Rather, it has a detached garage, if it has one at all. Not all Carriage home buyers opted for the garage and instead, have a paved parking area in … (7 comments)

Hope that everyone in Braemar is enjoying their summer.  It's been great pool weather.  With the heat and humidity being nearly unbearable at times, where else would you want to be?  

The spring real estate market took off like a rocket in Braemar and shows no sign of slowing down.  And as always, the Braemar Carriage homes were in high demand. That's what this report focuses on--Braemar Carriage homes.

No matter what the season, the carriage homes in Braemar always seem to catch my eye.  Especially the ones with the covered front porches.  And they clearly catch the eyes of Bristow buyers because there has only been one two month period since the middle of 2005 when I started this report when no carriage homes sold.  
A Braemar Carriage home is characterized by the lack of attached garage, but rather a detached garage.  Not all Carriage homes opted for the garage, so some have a paved parking pad in the rear of … (4 comments)
