2019年4月矽谷房市行情報告

今年雨水特別多,植物長得特別好,但是灣區最近花粉症很嚴重,我也是眼淚鼻涕直流,相信很多人都有這樣的感覺。每天開車,車子上薄薄一層淡綠色,看起來很像濾鏡,其實就是很惱人的花粉。住在灣區這幾年,花粉症好像越來越嚴重了,前兩三年沒啥事,有時候鼻塞昏沉,今年會流涕與淚的。唉,我好像找到灣區的缺點了 !

據說花粉過敏吃藥有效,可是我是一個不想攝取過多藥物的人,不想研究也不想吃,去了Trader Joe’s 買了當地蜂蜜吃,如果再更嚴重,下周再去買花粉吧!記錄一下每年春天才會有的灣區事,接下來看房市吧。

跟上個月推測的一樣,大部分的城市,市場都有熱絡一點。但是最近半個月,市場上的inventory變多,價格可能會先穩住,上漲太多的機率不太高。我的建議是繼續看繼續下offer,也許你有機會拿到好deal!

不要再問我會不會漲會不會跌了,想長期留在矽谷就趕緊買吧,現在很好挑。每一個月花那麼多錢幫人家養房子會比存在自己的房子好嗎?如果你有換房計畫,先賣後買或先買後賣都能安全操作,我們可以約時間見面討論一下。

出價的藝術

 

出價的藝術

最近的房市雖然不熱,但是有逐漸回溫的趨勢。房市溫和對大家最有利,買賣在合理價是最難的事情。

昨天跟客人討論disclosure之後準備出價,幾乎所有的買家都會問我「怎麼出價?」能給什麼建議,通常來說我在出價之前會做幾件事情。

第一、CMA: Comparative Market Analysis, 有時候說很快我們就叫comps,我會找出附近類似產品成交價格,讓你了解一下周邊行情,甚至我會抓半年到一年的行情,讓你知道一下走勢。

第二、屋況分析:這房子必須維修多少錢,客戶自身想要做的後續維修需要多少錢?你想做哪一些補強呢?換馬桶、換鏡子換洗手盆,裝修廚房、換洗碗機、換抽風機等等,我們可以概抓一下預算。 如果新房,我也可提供建商的upgrade大概的所需費用行情。

第三、市況:最近市場狀況如何,需不需要加價,我們可能會遇到多少「對手」也想下offer,跟listing agent的密切溝通的結果就成了下offer時重要線索。


第四、房子與市場:這房子在市場上多久了,也就是我發listing給你參考時,你會看到一個DOM (days on the market),為什麼放那麼久?是屋況太可怕沒人要?還是市場低迷等,搞清楚原因我們再投標。

第五:獨特性:每一個房子都是獨一無二的,就算在同一個社區也會因為座向、有沒有風景、棟距、停車位、採光、臨路條件、有沒有面對嫌惡設施等價格有很大的差異。

出價之前大概會整理上述原因,討論出一個價位,搭配自身的出價條件(像是cash offer、或是pre approved,或是down payment多寡等等)總和所有自身優點送出offer。

有些人可能會看到市場變差一點,就想砍價砍到底,低價送offer不是不可能,讓我這個包打聽的先去跟listing Agent探一探訊息,如果賣家價格實在很硬,或是賣家脾氣不太好,砍到人家不爽這offer就GG了,有時還是得將心比心嘛,如果你在賣房收到一個很差的offer,可能直接不回應了!

雖然必須顧及買賣雙方的kimochi,但是買家經紀還是在幫買家做事與捍衛權益的,絕對不是賣家。

 

 

 

為2018年的買房做準備

轉眼又到年終,一個房市瘋狂的年度將盡,也許你在2017 信用分數不夠、還沒有正式簽證、頭期款不夠、股票還不能兌現…,不論種種原因,我們又過了一關,又是一年積累、一年的成長與收穫。

2018即將到來,如果你有買房計畫,可以透過下列一些方式,先做好一些買房前的準備。

一、檢視財務狀況:概算頭期款Down payment  (如果有含家人贈與金額Gift Funds,記得先跟Loan Agent問清楚如何匯款進美國或直接進入Escrow,每一家銀行各有不同要求。原則上是錢越早到美國越好)、計算每個月可運用資金、計算出租划算還是買房划算…。我個人也能提供更精確的計算表格,包括基本稅務上知識解釋,當然更深入的稅務相關話題就交給CPA啦 🙂

二、關注一下房市:每一到兩個月我都會固定寫個人的矽谷觀察/房市分析,包括帶著客人下標買房的offer數,自我對房市的第一手觀察、來自MLS的加價率、最新的MLS成交數據、成交所需天數等等,房市已經熱了好幾年,2017更是達到巔峰,2018選擇買房絕對是買在高點,但是在灣區,一定是越早買越好。就目前趨勢看來,股市依舊大好、市場游資充盈、就業率高、經濟一遍樂觀,2018年房市看來仍有一片榮景。

三、Pre-Approval Letter:開始準備文件、並與貸款經紀聊一聊。如果想申請貸款,銀行將要求諸多文件像是W2、Pay Stub、Bank Statement,還會要求pull你的信用報告等。 此時也可以開始找貸款經紀洽詢貸款額度、利率、比較一下closing cost,並且需要依照身分、來美國的時間、有沒有信用分數等等,選擇最有利的貸款方案。 值得注意的是,買房利率在申請pre approval letter期間是不確定的,利率只能在offer被接受開始進入貸款期內,才能鎖定當下的利率。

四、檢視信用分數:每年都有一次https://www.annualcreditreport.com/index.action 免費信用分數申請。信用分數最好700+分,信用分數越高、貸款利率可能會更加優惠,至於如何維持信用分數,建議應平均使用信用卡,舉例來說有三張各$1000額度的信用卡,請不要一張刷到$900,最好是每張刷$300,盡量不要再辦新的信用卡、辦理車貸,或是最好諮詢貸款經紀再做這些決定。

五、面試買房經紀:大致確定買房價格帶與學區後,也可以找一個有經驗的經紀人,從經紀人過去的買房數、加價度、經驗值是了解經紀人的第一步,再來可以見面觀察、聊聊買房方向與未來買房流程。這些準備,可以幫助你快速鎖定區域、順利買到房子。有經驗值的經紀人也能充分保護買家不在搶房的過程遭受風險。

六、了解買房流程跟時間:時間的掌握點很重要,為了避免急著買到房子,或是在這瘋狂的市場「搶」不到房子,我們要概抓一下時間,首先必須清楚知道租約到期時間、預先搬家所需繳交的違約金、如果需要month by month繼續租下去,需要多少時間給房東通知,又要繳多少房租,預期拿回多少押金。了解買房流程所需時間、了解什麼是「下offer」,什麼又是「Escrow、Title insurance…. 」什麼又是Close of Escrow? 等等。

七、開始線上看房:REDFIN、ZILLOW都是線上看房很好用的軟體,也有篩選功能,了解一下房子銷售速度、最近銷售價格、今年的銷售價格,應該是明年開春的房價基礎,可以先對區域行情有些概念。

希望這七大準備動作,可以對明年有買房計畫的你有所幫助。

明天我會寫一篇2018賣房或換屋的準備。

2017 8月、9月矽谷房市行情報告

 

八月、九月的市場行情報告,反應的正是今年暑假的市況,我的Broker說,今年的房市是前所未有的熱烈,其實觀察周末看房人潮、下offer數,以及下列表格所呈現的Days to Sell (上市到成交所需天數),包括加價率也維持高檔,市況依然是供不應求,且相較於去年同期的成交量,其實listing數並沒有減少,成交天數減少許多,可見市場買氣非常濃厚。

最近在Sunnyvale看房,很多賣房主都是離開矽谷到外州、退休族群,房價維持高檔,換房者減少,其實不利於房市健康。 每一位將要買房的人,我都會告知,現在可是歷史高點,謹慎入市。但是如果你問我,房價會不會跌,目前經濟大環境很樂觀,矽谷就業機會多,有「信心」買房的客戶群不減,即使升息傳聞不斷,估計現在到明年房市,依然會溫和上漲。
