The land was worth less with a nice home on it!

The land was worth less with a nice home on it!
James Market News Lite again. Talk of a quietening market, in a our opinion, is a little premature on what we saw today. Yes, clearance rates are down – but that is normal for this time of the year, as the real quality auction stock doesn’t come out in large numbers until either side of the [...]
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!

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.
