這個冬天的修房小雜事

家中全室remodel完畢大概9個月了,有時候必須得過了一年四季才會知道房子有那些問題。這個冬天我們做了幾件事情,跟大家分享一下。

一、 Gutter Guard: 我家隔壁有顆大紅木,夏末開始我家前院、屋頂都是落葉,直到還是持續有零星落葉,還好夏末快下雨之前,我就請清理gutter的handyman幫我加上網子,可以隨時打開來看那種,未來希望可以自己上屋頂吹吹落葉就好,而不需要太費勁清理gutter。

我們加網子而沒加Gutter protectors/cover是想說網子還能看到gutter大概狀況,最近覺得檔大葉子效果不錯,至於會不會淤積,接下來再觀察一下。

關於Gutter周邊產品有很多,有Rain gutter foam、gutter protectors、cover等,大家可以上網查查不同的效用,Home Depot都買的到,施工時注意安全,如果家裡周圍沒有大樹,也許根本不需要加裝。

二、Downspout Extension: 前幾天下大雨才發現之前gutter水往下流的管線離房子好近,很怕地基因此受潮,於是買了Downspout Extension希望水流能遠離房子跟地基。

三、Filter:因為所有冷暖氣機都是新的,窗戶也很少開,但是卻發現灰塵問題異常嚴重,之前出門一陣子回來感冒還久咳不止,想來想去不對勁,一拆開暖氣濾網口才發現,原來之前裝冷暖氣廠商給的濾網薄如紙,根本沒有過濾空氣的效用,家中的灰塵就不斷地循環著。

安裝全新管線加冷暖氣機上萬美金,一個濾網最貴也不過$20~$30,摸摸鼻子自己換上最好的,建議都是一年至少要換一次,濾網購買之前要記得看一下尺寸。

四、Threshold & Weatherstrip,冬天的冷風吹才知道門縫有多大,我家門特殊點,所以地板是自己貼上Vinyl Replacement Insert for Threshold,購自Homedepot。另一個小門框則是從Amazon買到的Weatherstrip自行貼上,很容易操作。

分享幾樣自家的小小工DIY,如果有更專業的建議,歡迎留言指教。

房子總是有些小問題需要不斷修修補補👨‍🔧👩‍🔧,最近又發現全新的Stucco已經有些細微裂縫,地基外圍也有小小裂縫,應該是house settlement,有機會再問問建築師跟結構技師該怎麼處理,再來分享給大家。

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。

 

 

 

2018年的矽谷房市分析報告

先跟大家說聲新年快樂!

happy-new-year.jpg

希望大家都有一個很棒的聖誕節&新年假期,我也回來上班啦,如果有關於矽谷房地產交易需求,可以開始跟我聯繫!

在此先整理一下2018年房市概況,再聊聊2019年的計畫

(想看之前所有房市分析請點擊這裡)

看數據之前,相信大家都感受到市場不再熱絡,在利率不斷攀升、全球經濟放緩以及中美貿易戰影響股市震盪的背景下,漲不停的房市終見喘息。

面對房市的修正,對於長期持有的買家、投資人都是一個機會,買家有更多選擇,投機客、Flipper縮縮手,也盼望這樣的調整讓市場更健康。

2018年9月矽谷房市行情報告一文,我就提到現在價格好談,後來我在10月~12月成交的房子,除了新裝修的房子還是熱門,其他一般condition的房子,幾乎都是低於listing Price成交,客戶在2018年6月進contract的全新房,我們也去跟建商談了價錢,建商也同意降價了。

2018年的房市走勢,1~5月隨著2017年的漲勢價格持續攀升至頂點,建商、社區行情依然不斷創下新高,後續因為利息調整,6月的open house我們就見到冷清的現象,7~9月還算平穩,美國國慶之後甚至還有一波熱潮,後來隨著股市震盪,10~12月都是修正的格局持續至今。

目前的市況因為房屋選擇變多,買家回歸理性,大致可以分為三種情形。第一、屋況條件好、地點好,依然深受歡迎,價格修正不到5%。第二、地點好、屋況普通的房子,買家評估只要能簡易修繕,價差能接受,多半也都會成交,價格修正約10%。第三、屋況不好、地點不夠好的房子則常常有買家棄標,必須back on the market 或甚至下市不賣了,價格修正率多達20%。

綜觀去年南灣交易量,本文數據均以2019年1月2日 MLS統計數據為準

2018年南灣:San Jose, Milpitas, Santa Clara(不包括Alviso), Campbell, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Cupertino, Sunnyvale 所有 Listing 數量為14119間,銷售了10847間

比較2017年同期(2018年1月2日 MLS統計數據)

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

2018買氣的確不如2017,但是數據僅供參考,因為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。

———————————————————————————————————————-

此外,從我在MLS很常擷取下來使用的 Average DOM & Sale to list price Ration也能明顯的看出加價率減低、成交天數增加,顯示市場熱度不再瘋狂,買家回歸理性。先來看看我最熟悉的Sunnyvale,平均加價率幾乎是0%

Time frame is from Jan 2018 to Dec 2018 Postal City is ‘Palo Alto‘ Property Type is ‘Residential’ Property Sub Type is ‘Single Family Home’, ‘Condominium’, and ‘Townhouse’ Results calculated from approximately 440 listings以上數據能看出市況走向,但是每一個社區、每一個學區的成交價都與位置地點有別而有極大差異,如果要下offer,還是要做好精準的comparable.

矽谷房市的熱絡度跟股市一直是正相關,高點整理對於股市是健康的,觀察市況,想買房、換房的人一直都沒有少,但是股市震盪導致信心不足,預期2019應該會是維持高檔整理、交易量減少的現象。

2018年5~8月矽谷房市行情報告

原來我的市況報告已經從月份變成季報(拍額頭)
實在是忙到沒有力氣寫文章啊!!
這應該是我的客戶們可以完全理解,有消息立即通報、有房屋立即帶看、有事情馬上處理…客戶的事情優先,寫文章就先放一邊啦!
尤其是這個八月,我交了五間房,其中三間是中古屋,兩間去年跟著買家一起排隊的房子,可說是去年的業績在今年實現。而中古房交屋過程出了點意外不說,還幫忙另一組客戶找了一家子可愛的租客。雖然日子過得有點混亂,吃飯常常是在路上快速來個麥當勞或越南三明治就解決,但是這數字創下個人紀錄,似乎也忙得不亦樂乎,工作上帶來的成就與助人的感動,已經大大超越收入這選項。
我沒有請助理,凡事親力親為,為的就是希望客戶在細微處都能感受到我的用心服務,當然也要怪自己多多少少有點工作狂,然後放不下心把事情交給別人🙄
好久沒寫文章,今天難得空檔想聊聊市場概況,我日日看房不間斷,當然我不可能天天外出看屋,不過天天刷手機、查MLS看每天上市房則是專職經紀每日必做的工作。
這幾個月觀察市況的結果發現,市場上買家其實還是不少,有剛需但是面對利率高、房源少的結果,總是會稍有猶豫,市場從五月Memorial Day瞬間冰凍以來,七月在國慶日之後稍有回溫,九月也稍有熱絡回升的跡象,但是瘋狂搶購的情況已經不復見。市況緩解下來時,出手不若也不必像今年三月之前積極。
漲多整理是必要的,這一個月以來,建商的新房有適度調整價格,漲幅不如去年激烈,中古屋市價則有點亂,我幫客戶買的房子已經不是用今年的成交價,甚至用去年的價格買到房子,買賣雙方的拉鋸戰在市場上非常明顯,僵持不下的結果,只要有點耐心,這兩個月看來多是買方得勝,當然也有賣方選擇直接下市,再待好時機賣房。
如果有在看房的都知道,房屋一定不會十全十美,總有地方需要調整、修繕,市面上缺點越多的房子以前矇著眼搶購,現在則是好殺價,如果不是太大的缺點,像是電塔第一排、高速第一排等等,還是有機會用好價錢買到好房子的。當然每一間房的屋況、屋主、買家的組合都不一樣,結果也非常多元。
昨天為了一位人在台灣的客戶看了矽谷中心百萬以下兩房,看房人潮有點零星,listing agent甚至不諱言說,有offer就滿意啦,加價率預計不到5%。我也看了幾間高價位的房,看房人數寥寥可數,看來上市時間要繼續拖長,期待有緣人。
如果你已經準備好了,現在正是買房好時機,與其跟大家搶破頭,不如現在冷靜下來好好挑房子,讓我來幫你好好談價格。而有些去年進不去的區域,現在反而是機會晉升好地段!
來看看南灣近半年的平均加價率跟上市所需日(去化所需天數)吧,市況就在數據裡!

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。

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。
