Braemar Property Values:  September-October 2014 (Courtyard Series)

Predictions for the first snow fall of the season in Bristow are being bantered about.  Weather is one of the hardest things to predict more than a few days in advance.  There are so many moving parts that Arlington Model Courtyard Homeaffect the outcome.  Real estate isn't quite as bad.  You can reasonably look to the recent past, look at what's in front of you now and look forward to say what conditions will be like in the coming months.  Of course, just like the weather, situations change, inventory for instance, or buyer demand, and that's when the market shifts.

This edition of the Braemar Property Value Report covers the months of September and October to see what has happened with regard to 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 and have extremely small outdoor spaces.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.

There were two Braemar Courtyard homes that sold during September and October.  Both were Arlington models,  giving them premium placement at the entry to the courtyards.  The high sold price was $369,000 and the low as $361,950.  The average of both sales was $361,950, which is our new average market value for Braemar Courtyard homes.  That is nearly an 8% drop in value since last report, but over a 3% increase in value since last year.

Braemar Property Values:  September-October 2014 (Courtyard Series)

If you placed your Braemar Courtyard home on the market, priced to current conditions, this report indicates it would be under contract in an average of just over a week.  You could also expect a buyer to ask for an average of under 1% of the sales price in closing cost assistance.

Courtyard homes in Braemar may very well benefit from the lower inventory levels we see in fall and Happy Holidays to all my Braemar neighbors.winter.  While Courtyard homes show very well through online photos, the lack of yard that many Braemar buyers expect, can lead buyers to choose other homes that offer back yards.  So lower inventory levels may make it easier for Braemar Courtyard owners to sell faster and for more money.

The next Braemar Property Value Report will be out in January and will detail sales from 
November and December. Until then, enjoy this holiday season.  And when you are ready to sell your Braemar home, give me a call for a free market analysis.  I've been a Braemar resident and full-time Bristow Real Estate Agent since 2005.  I can get your Braemar home sold as fast as possible, and for the most amount of money.  No One Knows Braemar Better!

Praful:  It's mostly about price ranges right now.  These homes fit into a price range moving faster.  There are larger, more expensive homes that do sit for nearly two months, sometimes longer.

Bob:  Thanks.

Alexandra:  That's so sweet of Roy.  I'll have to stop by and thank him.

Braemar is one of the communities that certainly should be considered by families as they relocate to the DC Metro Area.
