And finally Telstra reported that a number of selling agents were returning calls to buyers…..

It’s James Market News Lite on this special day, today. Today it was hard to believe what we saw, all over the Inner Melbourne auction scene. It was incredible. Overseas bidders from China were not actually putting offers in on homes, without FIRB approval and a number of negative gearing buyers who owned between 10 and 20 homes, had decided to [...]

July has been fairly busy away from the auctions!

Balwyn现象– 来自亚洲的国际需求确实有松动的迹象!

Balwyn现象– 来自亚洲的国际需求确实有松动的迹象!

By Mal James 21/11/15 Peter Batrouney 在拍卖后卖出20 Illawarra Road, Balwyn North, 成交价超过 $2,710,000, 1位竞标者 特刊——James对于墨尔本近郊百万元以上房市国际需求的专门报道 今天我们抛开我们对墨尔本拍卖市场的报道而关注墨尔本近郊房产市场国际需求的变化(如果有的话). James竞标者人数,Bayside, Stonnington以及清盘率都放在一边,以便我们能集中精力关注和评估国际需求——为此我们需要到能展示国际——亚洲——中国需求的地方——Balwyn去看看。 我们关注一下30场拍卖中20场来自Balwyn和Balwyn North的拍卖,这意味今天的数字不代表墨尔本整个市场的情况,所以今天让我们忘掉竞标者人数、清盘率作为墨尔本市场精确指标——只是看一看它们真正反映的,Balwyn或亚洲市场。 多年来,我们James买方代理一直指出墨尔本百万澳元以上市场是由国际需求驱动的,特别是由来自澳籍华人和中国公民的中国资金驱动的。我们的房地产不再是一潭封闭的死水,它已经成了一个国际房地产市场。 是的,利率,澳大利亚金融政策以及银行会影响我们的市场,但它们不会像外来资金那样驱动市场,特别是2008年以来,来自亚洲(中国)的资金。 在百万澳元以上房产上最重要集中外来资金的地方是Balwyn. 今年早些时候,我们在James市场新闻的文章中指出,我们觉得Balwyn土地价格上出现的情况对墨尔本高端房地产市场有很大的影响,比Brighton, Hawthorn, 甚至Toorak 都大。 我们仍然这样认为。 Balwyn 现在出现的情况是一个信号,预示着墨尔本其他地方以后(明年)可能出现的情况。Balwyn以及Kew和Glen Waverley的一部分自从2008年以来就成了墨尔本的法宝。 过去在这里首先发生的,后来在墨尔本其他关键区域,如东区和海湾区重演。 在过去的几周里我们看到了在Balwyn和Balwyn North发生的微妙的但是引人注目的变化-因此我们今天调查和分析这个墨尔本国际房产市场的亚洲震源地。 但是,请你在阅读我们提供的以下信息时保持一些平衡。 Balwyn是一个小规模的亚洲需求市场,在2015年9月份的James市场新闻文章中,我们详述了在我们的价值记录中显示最新的100笔价格超过二百万澳元的房屋交易中90笔涉及到中国人,或者说买者有中国姓氏。 目前Balwyn市场的春季房产是充足的,公平地讲市场并不是那样令人兴奋的,因为供应很多——意味需求会广泛扩散,这对竞标强度下跌是有好处的,春季市场显示一些松动通常是正常的,并且是从我/我们由始以来所见到的Balwyn房产价格最大幅度上涨后的下降。(比如2015年2月至6月)。 你下面看到的变化,自九月份以来对我们来说是明显的——仍是在早期——如果报导的限制海外投资法案和中国政府限制外汇流出的做法有改变的话,情况又会重新上升。 然而,没有糖衣——你将看到亚洲国际需求的变化要高于任何季节的变化。 BALWYN – 今天   66 Gordon Street, Balwyn – 拍卖前成交, $4,880,000 (澳籍华人或中国公民竞标者–不确定) (之前成交价$3,300,000, 2009年11月).   107 Winmalee Road, Balwyn –流拍于$2,025,000, 1位竞拍者 (澳籍华人或中国公民竞标者– 0) (之前成交价$751,000, 2002年9月). 在107 Winmalee Road, Balwyn, 在非常宽的路上竞拍现场人数较少   4 Clapham Street, Balwyn – 成交, $1,473,000, 3位竞拍者. (澳籍华人或中国公民竞标者– 1) (之前成交价$901,000, 2007年8月). 很开心,雨过天晴,60人左右的人在拍卖现场4 Clapham Street, Balwyn.   9 Kaleno View, Balwyn –拍卖后成交, $1,588,000, 3位竞拍者. (澳籍华人或中国公民竞标者– 2) (之前成交价$1,250,000, [...]

Apartments

Apartments

Apartment buyers and sellers can act like American grizzly bears. They hibernate for winter then wake and stretch for a little while and then, in Spring, they come out and get down to action. Now, here we are in September and there have been very few high quality apartment sales over the last few months as [...]

Season Opener: February 16 – a quiet start to the year, but there are a couple of big weeks around the corner

Hey, isn’t it good to be back in amongst it in 2013! So far the anecdotal evidence is indicating the market is starting with a bit of a bang. Enquiry is up, the number of buyers through most opens is up, agents’ mood is up (compared to this time last year) and some of the [...]
