2018年1月矽谷房市行情報告

今天(2/2)寫稿日股票稍有修正,股市這幾年歷經的漲勢不斷,稍有修正不也是好事一樁?

股票回檔,房市呢,我們處在全美最熱的房市區,還不見任何跌勢,如果股市真的大幅下修,也許價格還會有回穩的可能,若要見到下跌,可能短期內不容易。

2018年1月是offer寫到手軟,整個月是漲得又驚又快,不然就等著從別人的成交價往上加價。今年開始我的粉絲頁 會有我當周我跟同事下offer的最新成交狀況匯報,如果能及時掌握行情,對於周邊下次出價會更有幫助。

在這個賣方市場的時代,屋況差、長黴長菇、地基有問題的房子都還是一堆人投標,更不用說裝修完畢或是屋齡較新的房子了,offer數破表、加價率直飆、沒有超過comps 5%以上是肯定拿不到房子的,也因此買房投標之前買家更要謹慎,算好手上現金多寡,才能不讓保證金被扣走。

最近常跟客戶說,真的很抱歉,最近買房無法幫你省錢,而且保證會買在歷史高點,但是沒有人知道何時是最高點。必須要請你做出選擇,因為買與不買、要不要留在這一個城市,每個人都有不同的人生規劃跟方向。但是當您下定決心要在這裡買房,我是全職經紀人,必能為你全力以赴。

一月幫客人搶到房子的客人感謝信,買到房子真的很難,買到好deal更難,謝謝客戶的肯定。

 

 

 

 

來看看2018年1月加價率與成交所需天數,1月數據代表著2017年12月的行情跟買氣。看2017年2月到2018年1月的數據,更能完整看出2017年一整年房市走勢,加價率一路攀升、去化日期一路減少,買氣依然維持高檔水位,在矽谷買房,難度繼續升高。

以下圖示折線為加價率,長條圖為房子上市到銷售所需時間。

學區分數降級了?!

不知道大家有沒有發現,過了一個年,學區分數有所變動

https://www.greatschools.org/

主要是增加了EQUITY的評鑑,根據Great School 顯示Equity overview意思是指 Is this school offering opportunity for all its students, or leaving some kids behind? Successful schools are working to close the achievement gap.

其實這個項目充滿爭議,平均好還是平均差?

以後到底要怎麼看學區分數,我想參考多元評價與家長評論之外,家長心中自己要有一把尺才好權衡學區的選擇!

 

 

2017年的矽谷房市分析報告(南灣篇)

 

寫了這篇文章之前,我看了一下去年我寫的房市分析

時光飛逝又一年,這一年的矽谷房市熱度有增無減,漲勢是確立的,而供給量仍顯不足,相較於2016年,南灣 (註一)市場上公開上市的listing少了上千間,成交量持平,成交比率上揚,顯示市場熱絡的程度。

我這次跑的2017南灣市場數字,將整份房市報告延伸到South San Jose,讓大家對於整個市場的行情更有進一步了解。 本篇我從Sunnyvale以南的區域寫起,包括San Jose, Milpitas, Santa Clara(不包括Alviso), Campbell, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Cupertino, 至於Sunnyvale 以北的Mountian View,甚至包括 Palo Alto, Los Altos, Atherton, Menlo Park等豪宅區,我過幾天會另外再寫一篇供大家參考。如果你有特殊區域想要進一步了解、想知道現在的房子價值多少,也可以私下與我聯繫。

 

以下我們就來看看2017的南灣房市

本文數據均以2017年1月2日 MLS統計數據為準。

2017年南灣:San Jose, Milpitas, Santa Clara(不包括Alviso), Campbell, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Cupertino, Sunnyvale 所有 Listing 數量為12657間,銷售了11898間。這其中不包括未上市的銷售、部分建商蓋好的全新房屋銷售。

2016年同期Listing 數量為13957間,減少了1300間Listing,銷售了11837間,相較之下,今年Listing選擇少,整個市場卻還還多賣了61間房。這其中不包括未上市的銷售、部分建商蓋好的全新房屋銷售。

不分產品、不分城市2017年平均成交價格

由2017年1月的$989,318 成長到12月為$1,302,585,去年漲幅為31.66%

2017年1月到2017年12月平均成交行情
2017年1月~2017年12月平均成交價(Sale Price, Average) Property Type is ‘Residential’ Property Sub Type is one of ‘Single Family Home’, ‘Condominium’, ‘Townhouse’ Results calculated from 11,905 listings

南灣不分產品、不分城市2015~2017年平均成交價格

由2015年1月的$855,156 成長到12月為$1,302,585近三年平均漲幅為52.32%

2015年1月~2017年12月平均成交價
2015年1月~2017年12月平均成交價(Sale Price, Average) Property Type is ‘Residential’ Property Sub Type is one of ‘Single Family Home’, ‘Condominium’, ‘Townhouse’ Results calculated from 36,175 listings

 

 

2017年又是一個瘋狂搶房的一年,而且是史上最為熱絡,我知道很多買家紛紛盼望房價跌落,但是就供給量、市場氣勢,2018房價要跌的機會,可說是微乎其微。

(註一) 本篇文章所指的都是南灣,是 Sunnyvale以南的區域起,包括San Jose, Milpitas, Santa Clara(不包括Alviso), Campbell, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Cupertino (Morgan Hill, Gilroy等沒有提到的城市都不算在內)

(註二) 本篇文章指的 Property Type 僅有Residential,Property只看Single Family Home、Condominium、Townhouse三大類

稅改方案對房市造成的影響

這幾天接到很多人的詢問,也有好幾位客人問我對於稅改方案對房市影響跟看法,先聊聊稅改在房地產方面可能會造成的影響。

房地產稅(Property taxes)
新的規定只允許每年扣除高達1萬美元的房地產稅,影響所及,就是房地產稅單超過1萬元的人。

房屋抵押利息扣除(Mortgage interest deduction)
以前,抵押貸款(貸款)的利息為110萬美元可以扣除現在可能改為

1)100萬美元的貸款利息可以扣除
2)50萬美元的貸款利息可以扣除

2017年11月2日以前Close的貸款都不會受影響,但是還不知道未來如果有refinance的人會不會受影響。

以上是指自住房,如果投資房不在此限

賣房子的優惠年限
目前只要過去的5年中居住在家中2年,每一個在產權上的人有25萬元的資本利得免稅額。現在,新提出的規定是在過去的8年中必須住滿5年,才有免稅優惠。

現在能做什麼?

(1)如果你真想換房,也許可以更積極一點

(2)如果你的房地產稅超過1萬一年,可以先付明年的帳單,至於怎麼付房地產稅,請參考我上周發文

請注意!截自目前12/5號發文日,稅改方案還在眾議院和參議院協商,目前沒有真正的確定方案。至於矽谷房市明年的發展,我認為價格依然會繼續穩定上揚,因為回歸基礎點,矽谷房市目前仍為供需失衡狀態,自住型的買方仍遠多於賣方。然而,價格漲幅的多寡,則需看房子釋出量而定。

以上資訊僅供參考,如果您有稅務上相關問題,請諮詢執業CPA。
