Big picture bleak, closer examination brighter!
Its 6pm Saturday, week one of our fourth and final 2018, 3-week 100 Auction, Inner Melbourne Family Home, Market Temperature Test. Try saying that a few times! The results above and supporting data below are self-explanatory. Yes? No? Maybe? Have you been to an auction, EOI or off-market lately – is it a bit hit and miss? Not really. In fact, we [...]

State of the Spring Market

State of the Spring Market

  With the key property drivers of the 2000’s: Migration Chinese Students Easy Bank Money Negative Gearing (Interest only loans) Lack of Infrastructure being “attacked” politically from all angles (many would say this is a good thing for our young / community to at least pause and consider), the market is showing signs of and has the potential for major structural change. Forget [...]

9 Buyers near 9 Million in Glen Iris – Hello Dolly!

At 6.00pm on Saturday, in the second week of our three week May 100 Auction Test, it’s all becoming a little ho-hum – stats wise. The James Clearance Rate for $2m+ Inner Melbourne family homes is a borderline ice-berger 63% on the 35 auctions we covered. Bidderman was up a skerrick to 1.6 bidders per auction [...]
Cash is Why

Cash is Why

It’s 6.00 pm on Saturday, the first of 3 weeks in our May 100 Auction test. It played out to an expected script, with a near cold 63% clearance rate on family homes over $2 million and the James Bidderman is a consistently chilly 1.3 (bidders per auction), on what are relatively low stock levels for a “normal” May. Look at the [...]

Values versus Pricing at the Highest End

Values versus Pricing at the Highest End

Week One: Value is not a number, it is a feeling. Price has no emotion, no conjecture, it’s factual. Price is not value and value is not price. I buy a number of family homes for people –  perhaps more than anybody else in Melbourne, perhaps not – and at some point in the client and buyer advocate discussion [...]
Hard to believe we are knee deep into Early Spring!

Hard to believe we are knee deep into Early Spring!

G’day and welcome back to James Market News. Hope you all had a break from the Melbourne winter! My break was with my youngest daughter, Maddie, in the Top End at Fitzroy Crossing, Kakadu and Kooljaman, Cape Leveque. Aboriginal people know a lot more about land and its value than many of us “new migrants”. Hard to believe it’s been [...]
Let’s face a home truth – the elephant in the room – population

Let’s face a home truth – the elephant in the room – population

Ferocious bidding on the right homes – despite this being the largest auction start to a year in Melbourne auction history – the market lapped it up, spat out a few and said ”feed me, feed me, give me more.” At 6.00 pm the James Clearance Rate on Inner Melbourne Homes was close enough to 90% – yep [...]

市场已经启动,就像消防车而不像运货卡车

市场已经启动,就像消防车而不像运货卡车

  9 Victoria Avenue, Canterbury (Scott Patterson) $4,110,000交易成功 – 4位竞拍者 – 超过保留价$610,000 竞拍人数 3  0位竞拍者 16%  1位竞拍者 0%  2/3位竞拍者 48%  4位以上竞拍者 36% James市场总结 截止到今晚6点,墨尔本晚冬市场表现的很强劲,James百万以上房产清盘率为88%,并且在我们观测或参加的25场拍卖中,每场平均有高达3位竞拍者。 近郊市场正迅速脱颖而出 – 部分原因是由于缺少新上市的独栋家庭住房数量。 然而,这并不完全是由于缺少新上市的房产,(我去了Alastair Craige 在87 Rowell Street, Camberwell的公开展示房,他确认新的存量下降了25%),与冬季休假前强势领头的当地市场相反,现在亚洲人市场又出现了,而且还并未到此为止。平均3位竞标者,所有拍卖房产中1/3的好房产出现的井喷现象是一个大新闻——即使发生在存量低的情况下。 当我们说亚洲人市场明显回归,是指它原本的基地,墨尔本市场的发动机——Boroondara的高端市场(Kew, Hawthorn, Canterbury和周围)。 是的,我们是一个多元文化的城市,因此我们无法来确定每一个来参加拍卖人的国籍,因此我们所说的是,在此时此地我们正看到更多强有力的竞标来自有亚洲背景的购房者——要比我们在去年下半年和今年上半年看到的多。 事实正像我们在Boroondara的专家Simone Clarke 和 Matthew Quinn 所报道的那样。 8 Moonbria Kew (Andrew Macmillan) – 5 位竞标者 (3 位有亚洲背景) – $3,075,000上市, 成交$3,825,000. 比保留价高了$750,000. 9 Victoria Canterbury (Rebecca Edwards) – 4位竞标者 (3位有亚洲背景) –$3,500,000上市, [...]
2016年市场的开端是(······紧锣密鼓)

2016年市场的开端是(······紧锣密鼓)

2016年市场的开端是(······紧锣密鼓)     5/3/2016 代理故意报低价是欺骗行为,我们完全支持CAV和政府的努力 墨尔本近郊数据 竞标人数 2.4  拍卖水平 150  清盘率78 竞标人数  零竞标者  1位竞标者  2/3位竞标者  4位以上竞标者 2.4        13%       13%        45%           29% James市场总结 2016年市场的开端是······紧锣密鼓······涌入······强劲的······震惊。毫无疑问没有什么其他方法来确切描述。我们已经经历了连续三个大型的周末拍卖了。今天事实上是一个超级星期六,市场已经说明了。 2016年一开始就非常强劲。2016年和2015年仅有的区别就是市场上的房屋数量(2016年要少些)和激烈程度(同2015年暴涨, 失控相比,2016年表现强劲)。 我们James买方代理这个月目前为止做了很多事情,我们今天又买了.但恰恰是我们没有买成或没有买的房子揭示了墨尔本近郊房屋市场的真实情况。 34 Bell Street Hawthorn(Steve Burke and Tony Doh) * 在Hawthorn好的单面房(James房屋评估655) * 中介保守的报价是$1,300,000澳元。 * 我们为我们的投资者的估价在$1,600,000澳元左右,我们经过对该地区近期交易仔细的调查,给出了$1,518,000到$1,718,000这样一个区间。 * 开标价为$1,500,000并且到达了可以销售的价位, 另三位强劲的竞标者把卖价推到了$1,720,000. 为了一个单面房在$1,500,000后出现了井喷式的竞标. * 正好在我们估价的高位。 * 如果竞标以那位代理的报价$1,300,000开始,那我相信你会看到6位或7位竞标者。 * 注意:代理报价没有问题——他们有竞标者在那里并且一开始出到了可以销售的价位。 * 信息一:34 Bell Street告诉我们Hawthorn的单面房在市场上有相当大的深度。 * 信息二:买家并不是单一通过James买方代理同中介打交道,而是不断地同那些落标的竞争者打交道。要成功,让我们回头看看我们去年这个时候在拍卖会外的策略吧。 5 Nelson Street Sandringham (Julian Augustini 和 Romana Preston) * 非常高的质地,单层,装修过,木板,Sandringham B级街道, 中等大小的地块特定年代的房屋(James房屋评估727)。 * 代理报价$2,200,000到$2,300,000 * 开拍$2,400,000着实吓到了众人,使得拍卖停顿了一会,这才使买家有了喘息的机会。 * 而这种失去意识只是短暂的,因为有另5位(是的5位)举起他们的手直至$2,655,000。我们的出价上限是$2,725,000。对于一个在Sandringham低于中等地段,高于中等的单层木板房在出价$2,400,000后出现了竞标者井喷现象。 * 在过去的两周里我们在67 Mills看到6位竞标者把价格抬到了$2,790,000,在Edward St有4位竞标者把价格抬到超过了$2,600,000, 今天这里有6位竞标者(应该有十几位预算超过$2,000,000)——因此现在在海湾区中部,家庭住房是很有深度的。 * 注意:代理报价没有错——他们有竞标者在那里,第二次出标后就房屋就达到了可以销售的价位。 * 信息一:当你想在Sandringham/Hampton买一幢$2,500,000左右的A级的房子,你可能有十几位竞标者(请参阅受伤的落标者文章)在看着你,5 [...]
