年轻购房者的问题和解决方案 Young Homebuyers Issues & Solutions James 市场总结 James Market Summary * 在惯例的七月冬季,墨尔本房产市场拍卖数量刮起了一股下降之风。看一下右方我们拍卖房产的图表—-很多人正开始暂停拍卖。 * 竞标者数量今天有所下降,然而房产质量本月有明显松动。 * 流拍较我们近期看到的要多,这是房产质量征兆的一部分,这同样也反应了卖主预期与市场博弈的情况。 * 在我们参加的27场拍卖中,81%的拍卖有2-6位竞标者,只要市场按这个力度走,这是个非常非常坚实的结果。 * 总的来讲,我们今天看到的,不多。市场的成交在心理上受到了媒体讨论的影响(这并不是抱怨——我们需要有这种讨论),虽然过一个周末长假,房产质量有所降低,但还是有了坚实的结果。 * 另外,欢迎回到James市场新闻(本周与下周将是大专题)。欢迎年轻的购房者在下两周分享我们的专题文章,然后在7月份学校假期期间市场新闻会暂停,James购房中介仍对客户开放。 The Inner Melbourne Market is beginning its wind down into the traditional July Winter break. Look at our forward auction stock graphs to the right – most are beginning to shut up shop.

Apartments
