Bristow Virginia has turned into a huge PUD (Planned Urban Development). It boarders the area's of Nokesville, Haymarket, Gainesville and Manassas. Bristow was once farm land that consisted of non conforming neighborhoods with no HOA's and no shopping.

Bristow has quickly transformed into an upper middle class neighborhood with a varitiy of home styles, lot sizes and price ranges. You have neighborhoods like the  Braemar Community, Bridlewood, Bridlewood Manor, Brookside, Crossman Creek, Foxborough, Kingsbrooke, New Bristow Village, Lanier Farms, Saybrooke, Sheffield Manor, and Victory Lakes.bristow real estate market may 2012

The average list price is $408,501. Of those 40 homes for sale, three are bank owned and eight are short sales.

The rental market has been good in Bristow. With the average home being built prior to the real estate bubble it has made it affordable for homeowners to rent their current home and move up to a large one. There are currently 21 homes for rent with an average rental price of $2,338. This is up 13% from the same time last year when rents averaged $2,045. Renting is another option for those who are upside down and need to transfer out of the area.

With the summer real estate market in full swing it appears that prices for Bristow will contunue to edge upward as the supply of homes remains low.

Susan, We have been seeing an upward trend with prices for about 6 months now. We have few foreclosures and the short sales appear to be winding down as well. This is great for the entire economy. I hope your market is improving as well.
