小心沒有permit的房子

小心沒有permit的房子
某年幫一位客戶買房,賣家曾經remodel過卻沒有申請permit,但是已經是年代久遠的事。
投標之前我們也再三確認屋主做了哪一類的remodel,一些櫥櫃的更換,水電管線都沒有變動,廁所只換了vanity,也就安心買了下來。
屋主要求rent back 2個月,但是租約未到已經先行搬走,搬走時還很小氣,馬上打電話先切斷了電,由於Santa Clara是Santa Clara utilities,city 派人來切電,眼看這房子remodel過,不分青紅皂白,就開了張罰單,要求up to code。
我的客戶是第一次買房,賣家也堅稱持有過程中沒有做過任何需要permit而沒有申請的remodel,因為屋子已經成交,罰單必須要由新屋主負責,我跟Listing agent都傻了眼,根本沒遇過類似情況…
接下來就是跑市府問清楚,連市府permit center都詫異,這樣的情形怎麼會發生。為了要解決問題,我們只好當作是我們曾經remodel,先畫圖floor plan、到市府申請許可,期間還有模有樣的必須申請Title 24,就是為了要符合city Plan Submission Requirements 當初為了省錢,我們自己花了很多時間自己畫了圖,交上、申請許可、叫檢查,看看出了什麼問題,之後請工人修復、檢查、修復然後檢查通過,過程花了整整一個月,還好期間非常幸運,不僅櫃台的人通融,讓我用自己的格局圖,就拿到permit,也能call for an inspection,後來檢查員只挑出一些電盤老舊、加裝GFCI等小問題,我們請來licensed electrician,就在第二次檢查,把問題順利解決了 ,一切都算是不幸中的大幸。
到底什麼裝修需要permit?什麼不需要,像是San Jose City有一些標準可供查閱,點擊連結就能看到。但是每一個city都有不同的標準,請先諮詢在地市政府permit center。
分享自身的經驗給大家,就連這種不需要permit的裝修,都有可能會被找麻煩了,何況是動了管線、加建、改建卻沒有permit的建築。買房子的時候,從disclosure中去讀seller提供的屋況與歷史,到city permit center查詢歷史也很重要。賣房子的時候不管有沒有permit的整修,一定都要誠實揭示告知。

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。

2017 1~2月矽谷房市行情報告

今天是驚蟄,灣區不打春雷,而是下了冰雹,跟房地產最近的市場一樣猛烈。

發表一下MLS 1~2月的銷售數據,1~2月的數據代表著去年底與今年1月的買氣,過了一個年,市場的腳步已經站穩,價格繼續挑戰新高,今年的買氣跟去年 (2016年3月我的文章) 買氣相比有增無減,矽谷房市已經熱到頂點,價格繼續前進,銷售量則因為淡季,維持著平均水平。市場上嚴重的問題是房源少、需求高,希望未來的兩個月,會有更多可售房屋釋出,平緩一下漲不停的房價。

其實,在去年總統大選選完一個月,我們就嗅到了市場蠢蠢欲動的氣氛,原本觀望的群眾紛紛跨入買房行列,在下offer的時候,更是能感受到市場的溫度,Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara的offer數都在10份以上,近20份則是時有所聞,MV不加個20萬買不到、Sunnyvale Single Family好學區則是15%以上加價率才有counter offer的機會,如果是策略性開低價吸引買方目光的房源,時不時有超過30份offer甚至1月時,Santa Clara出現了55份offer的紀錄。

不僅中古屋需要激烈競標,連新房都是讓人等地苦哈哈,新房案源其實不少,只是想買的人更多,因此Mountain View就有建商的新房採取標售方式銷售。

若是新房案源,以往多數採用先建後售,或至少是半成屋之後開始選擇細部建材與設備,可以作半客製化的建築,且是固定價格銷售。這個新建社區則是連Model home都沒蓋,就開始接受排隊銷售,而且銷售方式是「投標」,而非採固定價格銷售。

截至3/5日為止,該案銷售經理就告訴我,上次release 12間,一共收到160份offer,平均加價9萬美金。 價格相對低的Town house平均加價10萬美金,Single family 平均加7萬美金,下一次的release預計在3/18日,到時候再看看會多瘋狂。

我們來看看MLS 1~2月的成交數據吧,請仔細參考數據圖片下方的圖說,有針對區域、產品別的說明。

第一張是南灣近10年平均銷售價格,區域有Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Berryessa, Campbell, Milpitas

投資房 管理資訊 SJ Multiple Housing Inspection Program

你想在美國買公寓出租嗎?
管理的困難度可能超過你想像。
今天公司開課,討論San Jose「Multiple Housing Inspection Program」
以下所有的Multiple Housing都是指3 units 以上的property, 兩個unit的duplex, single family不在此限。
San Jose除了今年6月上路的Rental Control已經從8%降到5%,還有更多的管理辦法,促使房東要定期保養出租房,修繕管理等等。
Rental Control 5%意即每年租金漲幅不能超過5%,年漲一次,但是建築物若有更新裝修等提高成本處,可向City申請房租漲幅特殊許可。
至於Multiple Housing Inspection Program房屋安全檢查,聯邦政府每隔5年會派人檢查,若有特殊program,還會有特殊檢查。SJ city依照社區分級3~6年就會檢查社區一次,通常會在一個月前通知,檢查項目非常非常繁雜,但主要都是為了租戶的居住安全與權益。
除了常見的廚房、熱水器安全檢查,還有黴菌、逃生設備老舊、每個出租房間都要煙霧與一氧化碳偵測器等,甚至有許多常被忽略的項目。
舉例來說:
(1)門口把手距離地面過高,因為這樣火災發生時,趴在地上的人可能無法打開門把逃生。
(2)打開門,門後不能堆放東西、鞋櫃等,以免發生火災時,門無法全部開啟,妨礙逃生。
(3)老舊油漆、門廊、屋頂需要更新維修
(4)停車場要鋪水泥,如果是泥土地,怕汽油滲到土裡會造成汙染等急需改善事項。
還有許多細項,可到Multiple Housing Inspection Program 可以點擊這裡看市府官網資訊
想投資房地產,請詳細了解每一個城市的管理法規與辦法,雖然租金高漲,想當房東可要先做功課,千萬不要被投報率給迷惑,後續還有很多管理、維修、保養等成本,每一個城市都有不同的需求,都需要將時間與金錢成本計算在內。
有任何投資需求或任何疑問,歡迎與我聯繫。
