Braemar Property Values:  November-December 2015 (Ryan Homes)
The thaw from the blizzard Jonas is still underway.  The snow piles look less intimidating every day, which is a relief.  Eventually this will be nothing more than a memory.
Right now, let's talk Braemar Property Values, specifically those for Ryan Homes sold in the last two months of 2015.  Of course, Ryan Homes are simply the single family homes built by Ryan Homes in our neighborhood.
There were two Ryan Homes sold in Braemar during November and December.  The low sold price was $440,000.  The high sold price was $500,000.  The average of both gives us … (1 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  July-August 2015 (Heritage Series)
Funny that I should be writing this report on a day when I was actually out on a listing appointment for a Heritage Series home in the neighborhood.   Then again, I guess it may not be that coincidental because the vast majority of my business does come from Braemar.  And this fall, listing agreements are getting signed to take advantage of what I'm beginning to call our second spring market.
Let's get down to it and see what happened with Braemar Heritage Series home values for the last two months of the year. Heritage Series homes, for … (1 comments)

Summer in Braemar is certainly enjoyed most by the kids that attend the neighborhood pools.  And if you live in a Braemar Courtyard home, all you have to do is cross Sudley Manor to get the Rob Roy community pool.  
With May and June behind us, we can look back and see what happened with Braemar Courtyard home values.  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 have very small yards.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon … (2 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  March-April 2014 (NV Homes)
Summer may not be officially here in Braemar, but it sure does feel like it with the Braemar pools having opened on Memorial Day weekend.  I bet the kids just wiggle and squirm in their desks at school, itching to get and call the school year done.  While the kids are looking forward to summer, we are looking backward.  This Braemar Property Value Report is looking back to NV Home resales in Braemar in March and April.
During March and April, there were three NV Homes that were sold.  Their final sales prices ranged … (0 comments)

It is Memorial Day weekend and the weather is gorgeous in Braemar.  Got out for a walk in our neighborhood today and ended up helping a wayward elderly dog back home.  He got out because the gate to the fenced yard was open.  Oops!  Remember to close your gates.
This Braemar Property Value Report will take a look back at March and April in the Courtyard Series sales.  Braemar Courtyard homes are any one of three different models that share a private courtyard driveway and have very small yards.  Models include the Arlington, Ballston and … (5 comments)

Spring finally seems to have hit Braemar.  I looked in my garden the other day and saw purple flowers that seemed to have bloomed overnight.  Hopefully it won't get too hot too quickly, but at least you don't have to shovel heat.
This is the Braemar Property Value Report for homes in the Arista Series by Brookfield Homes.  These were the largest homes built by Brookfield and there were three floor plans from which to choose:  Allister, Buckingham and Canterbury.
Only one Arista Series home sold and that was a Canterbury with four bedrooms … (4 comments)

Braemar Condo Quarterly:  January-March 2014
The first quarter of the Braemar condo market was really quiet, but not for lack of buyer demand.  Buyers are out in full force and looking for affordable housing, just like Braemar condos.  Right now, there is only one Braemar condo on the market.  It was listed for $249,900 and after 18 days on  the market went under contract.  I'm sure we'll be talking about that one at the beginning of July for the second quarter report, but let's look at what happened in the first quarter.
There was only one Braemar condo sold in the … (6 comments)

Braemar Property Values:  January-February 2014 (NV Homes)
Braemar was developed by Brookfield Homes.  As such, the majority of homes in the community are built by Brookfield.  However, Brookfield did sell some of their lots to builders like NV Homes and Ryan Homes.  And by popular demand of the neighborhood, I had once again added the NV Home edition of the Braemar Property Value Report.
Unfortunately, there were no sales during the months of January or February of NV Homes in Braemar.  Same was true last report (November & December.)  

For now, I would recommend that owners of NV Homes … (5 comments)

One of the great things about a community like Braemar is the variety of houses available for buyers.  Granted, not enough of them are currently on the market to meet buyer demand, but there are many different home styles in our neighborhood.  This Braemar Property Value Report will focus on the first two months of 2014 in the Courtyard Series.  Braemar Courtyard homes are any one of three different models that share a private courtyard driveway and have very small yards.  Models include the Arlington, Ballston and Clarendon.

One of my favorite style of homes in Braemar are the Carriage homes.  Quaint is the word that comes to mind, particularly after a nice fresh snow.  And we've certainly had our fill of snow in Bristow this winter.  I know we are all ready for spring.  Of course, when we look at real estate values and try to glean where were are headed for spring, we look backwards.  And this Braemar Property Value is looking back to the first two months of 2014 in the Carriage Series.

While it is only a matter of days before we are officially in the spring season, we continue to be pounded by snow in Braemar.  And on trash and recycle days!  As if we didn't have a hard enough time cramming all of our recycle from one week into the bin, the pick up gets rescheduled or skipped when it snows on recycle day.  It's a bummer.
We're not here to talk about the weather, or how small our recycling bins feel.  The purpose of the Braemar Property Value Report is to detail sales of … (5 comments)

It's hard for me to believe that January is almost over.  Didn't we just celebrate the turn of the New Year.  Goodness time flies.   And who knew it would be so cold in Braemar this January?  It is bone chilling.  The good news is that the buyers don't seem to notice.  They are out there looking, whether you realize it or not.  And there were out in November & December too.  Let's take a look and see what the year end activity meant to single family homes built by Ryan Homes in Braemar.

Looking for something to warm you up on this bitter cold day?  It is not often Braemar sees temps in the single digits or teens.  Makes me happy to see the high of nineteen degrees.
This edition of the Braemar Property Value Report, focusing on Courtyard homes in Braemar should get your blood pumping.  Before we start, let's clarify what makes a home, a Courtyard home.  Braemar Courtyard homes are any one of three different models that share a private courtyard driveway and have very small yards.  Models include the Arlington, Ballston and Clarendon.

It would be great to be the person that delivers good news about the Braemar real estate market all the time.  Unfortunately, in the real estate industry, good news is not always what is on tap.  That being said, the bad news is not necessarily as bad as may initially think.
What am I getting at?  Well, it's time for another Braemar Property Value Report, which looks at sales of Braemar Carriage homes over the last two months.  In this report, we're focused on the last two months of 2013.  And to clarify what … (2 comments)

Now that spring and summer are over the time to sell your Braemar home is over, right?  WRONG!  Fall is a great time to sell and this report tells the tale.  This is a look back at sales in September and October of Braemar single family homes in the Heritage Series.   Those are the mid-sized single family homes with two car attached garages including the following floor plans:  Exeter, Yardley, Zachery & Waverly.
There were nine Heritage Series homes that sold over the last two months, and six of those are the ever popular Yardley … (2 comments)

Carriage homes are among my favorite in our community of Braemar.  To me, they look like homes that should be under a Christmas tree, adorned with snow.  And before you know it, we'll be in those snowy months and that image of those snowy, quaint homes will be reality.  For now, let's take a look back at the months of September and October and see how Braemar Carriage home values fared as summer ended and fall began.
Braemar Carriage homes are characterized by the lack of attached garage.  Rather, it has a detached garage, if … (3 comments)

Braemar Townhouse Report:  May-June 2013
Summer has been steamy for the most part in Braemar.  Growing up in Northern Virginia, I expect hazy, hot and humid in the summer, but some of the days in July felt like I was walking into a sauna when I left my home.  Made me want to rethink my work dress code and wear shorts and a light t-shirt while showing homes.  And I've shown a lot of homes this summer.
In May and June there were eight Braemar townhouses that sold.  All but two had garages.  The high sold price was $298,000 and the … (5 comments)

Braemar has been buzzing with activity since we hit spring.  Our real estate market is hot, hot, hot...not unlike our hot summer days.  In this report we'll look at sales in the Heritage Series over the last two months.  If you don't already know, Heritage Series homes in Braemar are mid-sized single family homes with attached two car garages and include the following floor plans:  Exeter, Yardley, Zachery and Waverly.
There were four sales in the Heritage Series in May and June.  Two Yardleys, a Waverly and one Exeter.  The high sold price … (3 comments)

There's something really depressing about a rainy weekend day in the summer.  It puts a halt to folks going to the pool and doing other outdoor activities they waited the entire week for.  What it doesn't do is keep folks out of our Braemar real estate market.  And let me tell you, the Braemar Courtyard homes saw a lot of activity over the last two months.  
In case you are unfamiliar, a Braemar Courtyard home is one of three different models that share a private courtyard driveway and have very small yards. … (2 comments)
