Braemar Property Values:  July-August 2017 (Carriage Series)
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)

Braemar Property Values:  July-August 2017 (Arista Series)
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)

The kind of heat wave we are experiencing in Bristow is one that makes you not want to eat.  Foods that normally favorites, like hamburgers, just sound too heavy.   One of my favorites for weather like this is a watermelon and cucumber salad.  Simply cut them both up, put in some of the juice from the watermelon, add salt and you have a light, refreshing salad.  It lasts for days in the refrigerator too. 
Just as none of us can do anything but wait through the summer heat, I can't do anything but report Braemar … (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:

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

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)

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)

The sun is shining brightly in Bristow today, after countless days of cloud cover.  That makes it a great day for me.  Even the sight of a rat snake in the road on Native Rocks Drive didn't get me.  He's needed some sun too.  Unfortunately, I think he also got hit by a car, because he wasn't moving.   
Braemar's real estate market certainly is moving.  In this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report we are going to examine the sales activity of NV Homes between the months of March and April.

Braemar's real estate market has been hopping ever since the turn of the new year.  And in this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report we are going to take a look back at January and February sales activity of properties built by Ryan Homes in our neighborhood. 
There were three sales to report from January to February:  
 
 
Taking a look at how these sales figures, compare with the rolling six and twelve month average and median prices we see that Ryan Homes in Braemar are ticking up in value. 
Even looking at the more recent six month … (2 comments)

Putting together Braemar Property Value Reports is something I have been doing since 2005.  And this cycle, I've retooled how I'm working my stats to be more true to average and median market values.  Good thing too, because in this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report for NV Homes, we have no sales to report.
You may be wondering what in the world I can tell you about properties built by NV Homes in Braemar when I have no sales to report for the reporting period of January-February.  Well, I decided to take a six … (1 comments)

Spring is in the air in Bristow.  As I drive down our suburban streets of Braemar I'm seeing daffodils and hyacinths blooming and our trees are finally sprouting their buds.  While winter didn't give us much of a show this past season, I know we all get excited when warmer weather approaches and our days are gaining sunlight.  The warm weather and sunlight has been tempting me away from my Braemar Property Value Reports.  It's easy to start them on a cold dreary day.  Harder to get them done when spring awaits just out the … (3 comments)

With all the real estate activity I am seeing, it feels like spring.   The only problem we are experiencing is a lack of inventory to accommodate the buyers looking to make Braemar their home.  Maybe you are about to read this Braemar Property Value Report with the thought that if the numbers were right, this may be the year you sell.  If so, call me and I'll get a much more specific market analysis together for you.  For now, these are some very general numbers showing what happening in single family homes, built by … (5 comments)

It has been a few days since I posted a Braemar property value report, but I promise I haven't forgotten about you.  My real estate journeys over the last few days have taken me to mountain top homes with severe slopes, covered in snow.  Makes you appreciate life here in Braemar.  Paved roads with traffic lights, stop signs and enough width to have two cars pass each other.  
This Braemar property report is the Braemar Reflection Quarterly.  For those who may not be familiar with this style of home, Reflections Series homes are located off of Tarvie … (5 comments)

Thanksgiving Day is behind us and so is Black Friday.  Today is Small Business Saturday and I hope you have the opportunity to make some purchases with small businesses in the area.  You may not consider real estate agents as small business owners, but we are.  For instance, I hang my real estate license with Long & Foster, but I'm an independent contractor running my own real estate business.  So if you wanted to list your Braemar home on Small Business Saturday, you would be honoring that day by calling me.

It was another gusty day in Bristow today.  Fortunately, I didn't have to spend much time out in it.  My biggest venture out today was grocery shopping.  Not sure why I thought that wouldn't be so bad, but the Thanksgiving rush was hitting Wegman's.  For the items Wegman's didn't have, I stopped by Harris Teeter, and thankfully, their store at the six o'clock hour was quiet...and they had the items I needed.  Took two stops, but the shopping is done.  That leaves me time this evening to tell you about Braemar Property Values for homes … (2 comments)
