Braemar Property Values: July-August 2013 (Courtyard Series)
You're probably enjoying the cool, sunny weather that Mother Nature has bestowed on us lately. And after reading how hot the Braemar Courtyard home market was in the last two months of summer, you may need to step outside and cool off. 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. Models include the Arlington, Ballston and Clarendon.
There were three resales of Braemar Courtyard homes in the last two months of summer. Oddly, they were are all Arlington models. The high sold price was $391,000. The low sold price was $350,000. The average of all three sales gives us our new average market value of $369,667 for Braemar Courtyard homes. That's an increase of over 3% since last report and an increase of over 7% since last year. That's great news for Braemar Courtyard homes that have seen values go up and down with sporadic sales activity.
If you placed your Braemar Courtyard home on the market, priced to current market conditions, you could expect it to be under contract in an average of a little less than two weeks. You could also expect a buyer for ask for an average of about 1.5% of the sales price in closing cost help.
