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, [...]

Market has started like a fire engine not a delivery truck.

Market has started like a fire engine not a delivery truck.

At 6.00 pm today the Melbourne market of late Winter has made a strong statement, with a James $M+ Clearance Rate of 88% and Bidderman a whopping 3 bidders per auction on the 25 auctions, we bid at or reported on today. The Inner market has started out of the blocks in a hurry – based in part, on [...]
July has been fairly busy away from the auctions!

July has been fairly busy away from the auctions!

Hello and welcome back to James Buyer Advocates Marketnews. A few auctions of note today on very small numbers as the market awakes from its traditional Winter auction slumber.  We have covered 19 in our reporting; Bidderman was 2.4 bidders per auction and the $M+ James Clearance rate was 74% – even though a small sample, we think it’s an [...]
为年轻购房者的解决方案——冬季重要专题

为年轻购房者的解决方案——冬季重要专题

 6月20日星期六下午6:00——中期报告  * 新上市的新房数量正在逐步减少,因为大多数好的经纪人开始进入学校寒假的休息阶段,下周将是入春前的最后一次主要拍卖周。  在大量新的质量好的房子进入早春市场之前,任何市场变化的数据都没有什么意义。  到目前为止今年的总结很简单:就像我们在房地产业长期的从业者所看到的那样,房产市场等同或强于任何其它时段的市场。  在东区和海湾区,海外购房者是主要的推动力—他们呈爆发和持续的态势。  那些有大地块的房子以及没房子或房子可即推掉的大地块,价格在圣诞节期间上涨了10%,其中有些从二月份到现在又上涨了10%,是的,部分都涨了20%了。  这些“20%“上涨所产生的影响是巨大和深远的。我们看到越来越多原本接近百万房产的地区现在卖价都超过了百万,因为一些东区和海湾区的竞标失败者由于价格原因已经把他们的眼光转移出了他们原本希望的传统区域。由于受那些失败竞标者涌入的影响,那些对海外购买者没有吸引力的房产的价格也有了巨大的上涨,——也就是,那些当地没能力购买大地块房产的人被迫参与较小地块房屋的竞争。墨尔本近郊在价格,房产,位子这三点上,在2015年早期有了长远和深度的结构性变化,并且自1970以来达到了新的高度。自2009年FIRB法案(限制海外投资者)和FIRB法案修正案以来,海外购买和影响还在继续加速。墨尔本现在确确实实成了一个国际购买市场。  泡沫?嗯,吃不准是不是由于上述原因(移民)。当然,在某些阶段这种强度会有所减轻,但只有移民,税/养老金购买法,或利率有巨大变化的话,这种强度才会大幅度减轻,而这种情况短期内不太会出现。  我们临近冬至前的一个最后总结评语:游戏现在已经改变,如果我们每个人想在墨尔本(现今的国际市场)上购房,我们也必须做出改变。James买方代理已经做出改变——现在只有在房子卖出后你才能在公开的地方看到我们对房产的评估。你会发现在公开房屋展示场所看到我们黄褐色背心的身影有所减少,你会发现在拍卖现场看到我出席的次数有所减少,但其实我们买了比以往更多的房子。从2015年开始,游戏改变了,我们James买方代理已经改变以便能更好地满足我们客户的需要。你,受伤的竞标失败者难道不需要改变吗? James内部新闻 好消息之一:今天是Simone和Adam加入我们James以来第一次为客户参加买房竞标(卖房中介是Tom Ryan)。该客户在过去的18个月里已经失去了4次以上的机会。好消息是该业务是由卖方经纪人,Desiree Wakim无偿,也不为卖房而推荐的。Desiree之所以推荐是因为他认为Simone 关心而且能帮助客户,而Simone也确实做到了。感谢你,Desiree!
