關於 HOA 的Litigation

 

HOA 其實就是Homeowner’s Association 有人翻譯為管委會,有人翻譯為管理會,而當你購買房子的時候,如果不是Single Family,通常多有HOA組織,且附帶的是厚厚的一大疊HOA文件,在下Offer之前,這些文件可是要仔細閱讀。另外,文末提到的HOA Fee的多寡也是更重要的一環。

動輒數百頁的HOA文件裡,主要記錄著HOA開會紀錄、HOA既定規矩(CC&R)與各式各樣新的規則(Rule & Regulation)必須遵守,當然HOA財務狀況(Budget)、HOA Reserve study等等,都是檢視這一家HOA是否正常運作或是未來營運狀況有沒有隱憂的可能性,有經驗的經紀人都會教你如何判別。

 

偶爾HOA會有訴訟 (Litigation)這個時候就必須了解正在訴訟的項目,多數人一聽到社區有訴訟就倒退幾步,其實新建社區在十年內,因為在建商保固期間,HOA告建商爭取更多維修款並不難見到,多數案例都能拿到建商撥款或再讓外包廠商繼續維修。

目前多數的訴訟都還是有貸款銀行願意承作,像是Bank of the west,、Coast to Coast、Universal Capital Mortgage、 New American Funding 、First Republic Bank 等等,但是每一家銀行規定的條件有別,舉例來說有些銀行願意承作正在打官司的社區,卻只能作Primary Home & Second Home的貸款,而不願意借貸給投資者。有些銀行規定申貸者信用分數達740分以上等等,必須要一家一家問清楚。

 

litigation-red-335

 

不過,也因為買方個案差異性大,風險最小的作法,還是參考社區過去在Litigation期間,是由哪一些銀行願意承貸,問詳細該銀行的現有規定,再來遞Offer,否則在Offer上面放上Loan Contingency 則是保護買賣雙方的權益之一。

當然HOA有訴訟案利率會稍微比市面上的高出0.25%上下,但是只要訴訟一結束,只要有機會拿到更好的利率,就隨時可以找其他家Refinance,有時候甚至會因為在社區Litigation買到房子,還撿到便宜呢!

希望這一則分享能對你看到HOA的Litigation有更多助益。 HOA文件是厚厚一疊卻又乏味,但是其中細節多、查看的技巧也多,下Offer之前,千萬不要簽名不讀就帶過。

對了,HOA Fee依照含括項目有別,當然越低越好,因為自住期間不能抵稅、如果未來有出租的可能性,租屋期間通常是房東負擔HOA Fee的。

目前新建社區如果有豪華設施、中半島地區很常見到HOA超過$400/月 以上,如果是老人公寓、高級地段公寓,HOA常見$600~2500/月,南灣 20年以上社區,均價約$300/月,依照社區設施多寡有別,南灣15年以下社區,設施不多,HOA Fee含括的項目也僅有社區維護,多數在150~250/月之間 。

關於HOA文件,可以寫上多篇文章,有機會我會慢慢分享。

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。

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
