四個在矽谷選擇買新房的理由

九月我寫了這篇文章矽谷房產筆記/在矽谷排隊買新房 

現在我跟許多買家們繼續排著隊,等待買新房 (指的是建商全新開發、沒人住過的房子)

這篇我要寫一下為什麼最近我很推薦客人買新房,以及市場推案概況,原因有幾項,也許等待是值得的。以下內文,只要點入建案名,都可以直接連結到建案網頁。

第一、價格固定:搶房搶破頭,2017年在矽谷南灣買房,尤其是首購族的60~120萬價格範圍內,競標總價多是要高於周邊近兩個月成交價的5~10%才能標到房,如果Listing agent 很盡責地無限counter,很多人可能會投標數次卻沒有買到。最後結果總是會超出預算,甚至可能被price out 退出市場,與其這樣,不如看好幾個社區,老老實實排隊等release,還有新房可以住。

Centre Pointe 11/4 現場release 盛況

第二、時間寬裕:大部分在南灣的建商會在建好地基之後就銷售,至少都還有大半年時間可以等待資金到位跟調整貸款,先把家人的gift funds轉到美國,放上兩個月以上,只要保持信用良好,不在貸款期間換工作,都會順利成交。

第三、邊等新房邊看房:排隊買新房並且一邊投標下中古屋的offer是沒有牴觸的,既然pre Approval都已經被pull credit了,那就一邊排隊買新房等待機會吧。多數建商也可以接受現有的pre approval letter買房。如果可以接受中古房的屋況,雙管齊下會更早買到房子。

第四、格局、地點選擇多:南灣目前新案從70萬元起到140萬元的產品為最多。建商很聰明,現在都是賣Condo/ Town house style condo,高價位或是稍微偏遠的區域才有Town house/ Single Family。

Indigo in South San Jose


目前還在銷售的房子,南至South San JoseIndigo 4房80萬元Milpitas Capitol (Great mall parkway) & Montague Expressway 其實就是在BART附近就有好幾個建案,Somont/ Centre Pointe /Elison Park 產品規劃很多元,社區也各有不同特色。Milpitas還有一個Coming soon的 Prynt,我可以幫你約到搶先跟Sales manager見面喔!

Berryessa KB HOME的APEX 兩房Condo 85萬元起,Santa Clara City的 Madison Place已經快交屋,明年預計二月將在Santa Clara downtown推出Gateway,我很看好這塊區域的潛力,逢人必推薦。Pulte的 Saverio正在Pre selling…

Sunnyvale大案子就是百餘戶規劃的的The Vale  依照大小與建材等級分為兩大部分ECHO & NEXUS,最新價格從135萬元起,雖然是整治過的工業用地,銷售速度也算順暢。

這裡有土地取得的過程: http://www.mercurynews.com/2016/03/09/sunnyvale-plot-of-land-sells-for-186-million-450-townhomes-could-come-to-site/ 

賣了一陣子的Sandalwood 這周末(11/11)會有新的release,2房從120萬元起一直到4房150萬元左右,剩餘戶數不多,陸續到明年一月、二月會釋出model home。

如果你不喜歡超大型社區,Sunnyvale最新要推出的CLASSICS at Evelyn Place可以給你參考,這裡距離downtown很近,周末有farmers market,Sunnyvale downtown一直在更新,周邊要啥有啥,生活機能很方便,社區總共42戶,從3B2.5B到4B3.5B都有,3房還有有陽台的版本,預計12月開始銷售,屆時又是一場排隊搭帳篷的考驗戰。

至於Mountain View的Radius 還在讓人繼續標售,社區共計206戶,目前還有大約60戶待售,與他人不同是Pulte銷售方式很多元,有些是現場抽籤,有些則是上網競標,Radius採取競標模式銷售,加價率大約10%。 Sales office也沒有, model home也沒有,銷售過程只需電腦競標,這是一個未來的銷售模式?!

 

Mountain view的SierraPoint 12/2日正式開案,規劃相對大面積的3~4房總價1.6M起,學區是Theuerkauf Elementary, Crittenden Middle, Los Altos High School.

Classic的新案Permanente Creek 距離Sierra Point非常近,社區都是三層樓Townhomes,但是屬於Condo的地目,總價從 1.3M~1.8M,學區是Monta Loma Elementary , Crittenden Middle, Los Altos High School。

 

1101 West Model Home精華區的1101 West,走入社區感覺像是進了San Francisco的新建房,建材等級較佳,當然價格也是高水平,面El Camino Real使用三層窗以隔絕噪音,多數戶別看El Camino Real樹梢或有後方校園景觀,銷售已近尾聲,剩下的studio開價75萬元,格局並不方正,不好使用。剩下2房樣品屋,位於2樓,預計2018年1月上市供大家標售。

除了南灣這些社區,我也跟客人到Fremont  Union CityHayward. Fremont 新案可就多啦!Condo產品有Pepper tree、距離鐵道很近的Renato而建商Robson home的Single family 從1.2~2M的豪宅都有。 Newark Bay shore 系列,則是大型造鎮開發,價格很實惠,產品種類多,但是生活機能還是不夠好。

三谷地區我也陪同看房,San Ramon有知名的建商造鎮Wallis Ranch,只是8月旁邊曾經火燒山,Gale Ranch我覺得距離高速稍遠,如果喜歡高爾夫,可能會感到興趣,附近有兩個Golf course跟一個driving range。

Pleasanton的新房多是獨棟大戶社區,最近看了面積在當地相對小一點的Andares 社區介於一堆辦公室中間,所以晚上跟周末非常安靜,社區對面就是中學,價格從85萬元起可買三房Town house,如果已經有塞車的心理準備,又想買全10分學區的首購族,這裡是個好選擇。


新房多、價格範圍也廣,因為地點有異,產品設計也各有優缺像是Indigo雖然物美價廉,但是回家會經過墳墓公園,你會介意嗎?  目前建商說剩下45戶左右,只想賣給真正的home buyer not investor,如果真能實行,是再好不過。

如果你對南灣新房有興趣,要有等待半年到一年的心理準備,東灣大概三個月到半年,三谷地區可能已經有新建房可以立即入住,請注意!看新房第一次踏入銷售中心一定要與我同行,第一次造訪一定要與我一同填寫登記表格。

2018年春天後,還會有很多新房陸續上市,如果你有買房計畫,或有任何關於房地產的疑問請與我聯繫。

2016/9月 矽谷房市放完暑假 續加溫

9月自開學以來,忙碌不間斷,今天偷了個空檔,寫寫9月行情,去年有一個柯小姐寫信告訴我,我的文章對她很有幫助,前幾天成立FB粉絲頁,一個在台灣專職當地產投資家的陳先生也跟我說,我的部落格很札實,對他了解矽谷房地產很有幫助。謝謝你們的鼓勵。

前陣子李國修的女兒出嫁上了新聞版面,我一直很喜歡李國修說的一句話:「人一輩子能做好一件事,就是功德圓滿」,也不斷告誡自己盡責、盡力,除了對房地產真心感興趣,其他的,真的就是一個理念:「誠實」。

也許是新聞(房地產線)記者出身,對數據敏銳度與正確度要求很高,分析數據、讓房地產資訊輕易可讀,是我這十年來一直在做的工作。

所有部落格內容都是我從加州房地產銷售系統MLS的內部數據資料,美國房子銷售透明且公開,只要產權有所變動,銷售價格與第一次的貸款金額,都會登記在縣市政府,所有人都可以查的到,精確至門牌地址與產權持有者、貸款人姓名都是公開的,與台灣模糊的房價透明化仍有段差距。

 

回到正題,10月顯示的最新銷售數據,是9月的市場狀況,上個月我提到 下個月加價率肯定又回來了,驗證MLS系統公開數據,果然沒錯,主要是暑假過完,對於矽谷房市來說,又是一個新的Peak, 一直要到感恩節,房市價量才會稍有喘息,依照目前的買氣看來,下個月一定會再創新高,銷售天數縮短,加價率回升,期待下個月我的文章吧。

 

看一下近十年南灣房價走勢,房價來到新高點,氣勢很盛!

2016年4月最新行情/漲勢確立 各自表現

按照慣例,我又來寫MLS最新資料數據分析,四月的數據反映的是三月的房市,上個月我們歷經了平均開價相較去年跳漲10%的日子 應該很多人好奇三月市場的變化

其實從Agent每天在市場打滾的體驗,下的offer數與看房人數多寡,Buyer的出價勇敢度,大概都能感受到灣區房地產的市場溫度,三月我們與同事在出價時,正常的房子offer數都在10份左右,Sunnyvale則都有15份offer,跟天氣一樣,三月房市已經比二月來的溫暖。

除了漲勢再起,成交日也變短。市場如此,Buyer的加價實力不夠可是買不到房子,這幾個月尤其以Sunnyvale & Berryessa 市場更為火熱,買方加價力道十足,不分產品平均加價率漲至今年高點,成交數明顯稅減以下從MLS統計就能看出,就能房價已經高不可攀的Cupertino還是能看到成交天數縮短,加價率在攀升。West San Jose也是差不多的市況,但是我抓的數據只有顯示Single family(沒為什麼,獨厚我的客戶而已,他正在找這裡的House) 請大家見諒 ^^

再次聲明,每個區域、每個Zip Code都有好區跟差一點點的區域,學區、街廓、鄰居素質、是否靠近高速公路、鐵道或重大建設,都與房價息息相關,每間房子在每個人的心中顯示的價值都不一樣,每一個Agent出價之前都應該給客人近期成交數據分析,評估市場與客戶承擔能力,才進行出價。

若有問題歡迎來電、來信討論

The API: 10 things parents should know

前兩天一個Cupertino 搬走的媽媽語重心長地告訴我

「我要是重新再選擇一次,我不會讓我孩子去念Monta Vista ,Pidmont High也很好啊,我兒子在MV只是前20%,他沒有高中生活,一直在念書,如果到競爭少一點點的學校,他會不會比較快樂我無法確定,但是他排名一定會很前面,史丹佛只要全校的第一名,在名校的孩子,實在很可憐...」

API分數常常是有孩子的家庭購買房子的參考指標,去年10月開始,Redfin重新調整學區分數,許多API落後的學校,突然變成9分10分,不管如何,API分數真的是百分之百的指標嗎? 你的孩子一定要爭破頭搶好學校嗎?

這裡有篇來自greatschools.org的文章,提供大家參考,讓你對所謂的API 分數有進一步的了解

1. The API is not a test.

Rather, the API is a school performance measurement system that was first developed as part of California’s 1999 Public Schools Accountability Act. Each year, the state calculates the Base API for each school to establish a baseline for the school’s academic performance, and it sets an annual target for growth. Each summer, the state announces the Growth API for each school, which reflects growth in the API from year to year.

The 2011 Base API, released in May 2012, is calculated using each school’s test results from the California Standards Tests (CSTs — state tests designed to see how students are learning state standards), the California Modified Assessment (CMA), the California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA) and the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE).

The 2012 Growth API, which will be released in September 2012, shows the school’s academic growth for the year. It is calculated in the same way as the 2011 Base API.

2. The API measures both school performance and improvement.

The API can be used to see how well a school did on tests in any given year, as well as to track school progress over time. Each year, parents can review a school’s API number, which shows how well it did relative to the state’s goal of 800, and also check the school’s growth from the previous year. To make it an accurate measure of school improvement, the Base API calculation only includes test results of students who were in the district during the previous school year. The Growth API is calculated using results of students from the current school year.

3. The API has very high stakes.

Due to the spotlight on API results from newspapers and the state, schools are under tremendous pressure to increase test scores and improve their APIs. While some argue that this pressure encourages schools to improve classroom instruction, others are afraid that schools will shortchange rich curricular programs in favor of test preparation drills.

4. The API measures academic performance, not school quality.

As a parent, you may have heard people say things like, “The school has an API of 750, so it must be a great school,” or “The API is only 550? What’s wrong with this school?” While these simple assessments are tempting, be careful about jumping to conclusions based on a school’s API alone. Before making any overall judgments about a school’s quality, be sure to look at its API improvement as well as other key factors, including teacher experience, parent involvement and special programs.

5. The API focuses on achievement for all students.

The API is designed to show how well schools are serving students across all ethnic and socioeconomic groups. For this reason, separate APIs are calculated for each of a school’s statistically significant subgroups, which include any ethnic groups that account for a significant percentage of the school’s population. If “numerically significant,” APIs are also calculated for a school’s socioeconomically disadvantaged students (students who qualify for the subsidized lunch program or who don’t have a parent with a high school degree), English learners, and students with disabilities.

6. Schools that don’t improve their APIs must get help.

If a school doesn’t meet its API growth target and has one of the lower Base APIs in the state, it may receive grants and special assistance to help with improvement efforts. If a school continues to fall short of its target, it may eventually be subject to strong local or state sanctions, including reassigning the principal (subject to a public hearing), reorganization or even school closure.

7. API results are for schools and districts only.

There is no such thing as an individual student API. The API is based on scores from the CSTs, the CMA, the CAPA and the CAHSEE. The API measures how a school’s or district’s academic performance improves from year to year.

8. The API has changed.

It used to include just the results of the norm-referenced tests — in the first years, the Stanford 9 tests and later the CAT/6. These tests compared California students to their peers nationwide. In recent years the emphasis has shifted to include more results from the CSTs, which more accurately reflect what California students are expected to learn in the classroom, and fewer results from the CAT/6. In early 2009, the CAT/6 Survey was eliminated entirely as a testing tool in the state.

In 2001-2002, CSTs in English language arts (for grades 2 through 11) were added to API calculations. Scores from CSTs in math (for grades 2 through 11), social science (for grades 10 and 11), and the CAHSEE were added in 2002-2003 to provide a more accurate picture of what students have learned. In 2003-2004, CST science tests in grades 9 through 11 and the CAPA in language and math in grades 2 through 11 were added. Since 2004-2005 even more indicators have been added. The API now includes the CST in science for grades 5 and 8 through 11 and in history-social science for grades 8 through 11. In 2008, the California Modified Assessment (CMA) was added to the API for grades 3 through 5. Grades 6 through 8 of the CMA were added in 2010.

9. The API is complicated.

If the whole topic of the API confuses you, you’re not alone. Educators and parents alike struggle to understand where the API comes from, how it’s calculated and what exactly it means. Here’s the bottom line: APIs range from 200 to 1000 and the goal for all schools is 800. The API is based on test scores and is calculated in a way that encourages schools to raise the test scores of the lowest-scoring students.

10. GreatSchools Ratings and the California API are different.

GreatSchools also calculates a rating on a scale of 1 to 10 based on California test results. There are several important differences between GreatSchools Ratings and California API Ranks:

  • API Ranks are created by the California Department of Education. GreatSchools Ratings are created by GreatSchools.
  • The API is calculated using results from the CSTs, CMA, CAHSEE, and the CAPA. GreatSchools Ratings are calculated using the CSTs only. For additional information on GreatSchools Ratings, check our frequently asked questions.
  • Some test subjects count more than others in the API.
  • The API includes all 5 levels of proficiency (far below basic, below basic, basic, proficient or advanced), each receiving a different number of points toward the total API. The API is calculated this way to encourage improvement in test scores. GreatSchools Ratings use only the percent of students who scored at the proficient and advanced levels. GreatSchools Ratings show how the percentage of students on grade level at a school compared to schools across the state.

 

 

舊金山灣區 南灣 房地產 201511月最新數據報告

淡季不淡,市況「蠢蠢欲動」

12月已經7日,忙到現在才有空檔寫寫最新的買氣報告。奇怪,不是淡季嗎?可是我還是好忙呀!

沒錯,是淡了一點,冬季買氣絕對不如夏季炙熱,但是市場依然溫暖,昨天(12/6)在South San Jose 幫同事Open House,來了17組共40人,套一句同事說的話,大家已經「蠢蠢欲動。」

前幾天參加一個美國華人經紀人的晚宴,Green Valley Realty受邀參加,我也很榮幸地參與其中,老闆與公司業績前幾名的同事不約而同地認為:「過了感恩節,大家都以為12月是淡季,準備過聖誕節並迎接新年,沒想到升息疑慮未減,房市依然蠢蠢欲動。」雖然11月釋出量少,導致成交量縮,但是數字會說話,好區的成交行情依然不為所動,繼續穩定維持小小的漲幅。

來看看11月的成交市況吧!(2015年11月MLS資料庫,反映2015年10月買氣)

先來看看南灣的綜合買氣,下列數據包括San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Saratoga, Los Gatos。再往下細看各地區分析。

舊金山灣區學區最好的七城市(大紀元)

這是2015/03月的報導,房價隨時在變,請跟我聯繫,取得最新行情。

(大紀元記者馬天祥舊金山綜合報導)學區房是華人的最愛,全美尤以灣區有德天獨厚的教育資源,而讓這裡的房地產炙手可熱。這次我們就盤點一下灣區最好的學區之7座城市,提供買房投資的一個重要參考。

皮蒙特(Piedmont)

被加州奧克蘭(Oakland)包圍的皮蒙特(Piedmont),方圓1.678平方英里,人口才1萬多人。從去年11月中~今年2月份,其房屋上市價格均價252.22萬美元。銷售均價197.5萬美元。去年11月份中旬~今年2月份,房價725美元/平方英尺,比去年同期增32.8%。雖然處在奧克蘭包圍之中,但其犯罪率卻遠低於奧克蘭和加州平均。家庭戶平均單元價值達76萬美元。

皮蒙特德有3所小學,高中和初中各一所。2013年,高中API高達908分。其中,亞裔學生更高達948分。每年其上大學的比例非常多。在加州屬於最好的一類學區。

聖拉蒙和丹威爾(San Ramon、Danville)

丹威爾(Danville)上市均價133.8萬美元,銷售中間價99.5萬美元,比去年同期增加6.4%,但房屋銷售數量減少12.7%。431美元/平方英尺,比去年同期增長2.6%。和Danville相鄰的城市聖拉蒙(San Ramon),房屋上市均價103萬美元,銷售中間價75萬美元。410美元/平方英尺,比去年同期上漲9.3%。

家庭年收入和人均年收入中間值,Danville分別為12.58萬和5萬美元;San Ramon分別為9.58萬和4.23萬美元。

San Ramon Valley聯合學區可說是灣區最好的學區。San Ramon的Monte Vista高中2013年高中API為913分,亞裔為950分。Dougherty Valley高中2013年API為928分,亞裔高達965分。San Ranmon Valley高中為884分。小學和中學除1所外,其他API幾乎都在900分以上。

如果想要到最高分的學區,但是房價又相對便宜的地方,聖拉蒙是7座城市性價比最高的一個。她是一座較新的城市,位屬偏遠,到硅谷或舊金山相比其他城市有劣勢。

帕拉阿圖(Palo Alto)

灣區房價最貴的學區房。今年2月份,上市均價344.5萬美元,銷售中間價213萬美元,每平方英尺平均高達1,444美元,比去年同期增長18.2%。帕拉阿圖的熱門社區包括市中心和老帕拉阿圖,上市均價分別為493.8萬和575.9萬美元。

家庭年均收入達11.75萬美元,人均收入5.6萬美元。每戶平均住宅價值81.18萬美元。帕拉阿圖的學區除了分數高之外,生源皆來自本身城市,沒有招收其他城市的學生,有別於中半島的其他城市。

其兩所高中,Henry M. Gunn High 2013年API高達917分,亞裔學生高達954分。另一所Palo Alto高中2013年API為905分,亞裔學生高達968分。

庫伯蒂諾(Cupertino)

庫伯蒂諾(Cupertino)房產上市中間價為170萬美元,銷售中間價為143.7萬美元,平均每平方英尺827美元,比去年同期增長9.1%。家庭戶均收入10.9萬美元,人均收入4.47萬美元。房屋每單元中間價64.9萬美元。

Cupertino有3所高中深受華人追捧:Cupertino高中、Homestead高中和Monta Vista高中。Monta Vista高中2013年API高達956分,亞裔學生為969分,亞裔學生人數較多,佔總學生數的77%以上。Cupertino高中2013年API為906分,Homestead的API2013年為873分,其中亞裔平均為930分。

普萊森頓(Pleasanton)

上市均價144.39萬美元,銷售中間價83.7萬美元。平均每平方英尺470美元,比去年同期增加16.3%。家庭年收入中位數為10.3萬美元。其公立學校有Amador Valley高中和Foothill高中,學生以白人學生為主。私立高中有The Quarry Lane高中。其中Amador Valley高中,2013年API為897分,亞裔為954分。Foothill高中在2013年API為871分,亞裔雖佔不到1/3,但API高達934分。

菲利蒙(Fremont)

菲利蒙(Fremont)房屋上市中間價105.5萬美元,銷售中間價約70.8萬美元。平均平方英尺485美元,比去年同期增長15.5%。家庭年均收入中間數為8.2萬美元,人均收入3.1萬美元。菲利蒙高中有Irvington高中、John F. Kennedy高中和著名的Mission San Jose高中,API成績分別為884、743、951。Mission San Jose高中的亞裔分數更達到968分。另外,私立高中有Fremont Christian School。熱門社區Warm Spring上市均價99.3萬美元,Irvington為84.6萬美元。

洛斯蓋托斯和薩拉托加(Los Gatos、Saratoga)

Saratoga地區今年2月份銷售價格755美元/平方英尺,比去年同期增長6%。房屋上市中間價441.4萬美元,銷售中間價191.5萬美元。家庭年收入中間值為15.5萬美元,人均年收入6.5萬美元。房屋單元均價100萬美元。

2月份前,Los Gatos上市中間價為255.2萬美元,銷售中間價為130萬美元。685美元/平方英尺。家庭戶均收入中間值為11.9萬美元,人均年收入為5.6萬美元。

2013年Saratoga高中API為938分,亞裔為967分。小學和中學非常出色。還擁有一些在加州排名前列的私立中學,如Sacred Heart學校。Los Gatos High以白人學生為主,2013年全校API為883分,亞裔學生僅佔大約1/10,但API較高,2013年達940分。

2015年6 月,矽谷Sunnyvale房價再創新高

六月已經結束,我將Sunnyvale 行情整理一番。

數據全數來自MLS統計資料,我在這裡僅做Single Family的分析供參考,若須Condo, Townhouse資料,請找我洽詢,無論何種產品,我都將提供完整的數據分析,加價技巧,助您買房。

Sunnyvale House行情均價 $1,468,772 . 成交價格1.47million,成交量較前三個月縮減。平均成交天數13天。

成交量持續萎縮,但是買房出價動能依然強,

尤其在94087因為不少 Cupertino Union 與Cherry Chase好學區,加價幅度不減。

Sale price to list price ratio is 117.3% in Jun.

94087 (Sunnyvale, 因為有Homestead high, Cupertino好學區支撐,加價比率較高,民眾搶屋很積極)

“Sale price to list price ratio" is 117.3% in Jun, lower than 118.1% in May, higher than 116.3% in Apr.  Compare to 120.5~121.8% during Feb and Mar. Buyers don’t add as much money as 1st quarter.

Day to sell" in Jun of single family in 94087, only takes 10 average days to sell. Compare to 9 days in Feb and Mar, 11 days in Apr.  The ‘’Day to sell’’ in Jun means the market is still hot.

94086

“Sale price to list price ratio" is 109.7% in Jun, lower than 116.1% in May, 116.2% in Apr. .  Compare to about 111%,114% in Feb and Mar. Buyers don’t add as much money as 1st quarter.

“Day to sell" in Jun of single family in 94086, only takes 10 average days to sell. Compare to 21 and 11 days in Feb and Mar, 14 days in Apr.  The ‘’Day to sell’’ in Jun means the market is still hot.

Time frame is from Jan 2010 to Jun 2015 Postal City is 'Sunnyvale' Property Type is 'Residential' Property Sub Type is 'Single Family Home' Results calculated from approximately 3,300 listings
Time frame is from Jan 2010 to Jun 2015

Results calculated from approximately 3,300 listings

這是近五年Sunnyvale價量,紅色為價、綠色為量,僅做Single Family的統計表。2015年僅統計到6月,因此量約一半,但是我大膽預估,因為高房價(買房躊躇)與周邊房價直漲(賣方賣了不知道該往哪裡住),今年成交量應會減縮,總成交量將低於過去四年的平均值。稍晚再來寫兵家必爭之地Cupertino!

2014年3月~2015年3月 中國人首次成為美房市最大海外買家

(大紀元記者李默迪綜合報導)美國房地產經紀人協會(National Association of Realtors)最新統計數據顯示,購買美國房產的國際客戶中,中國人首超加拿大人,購買量和消費額方面都是美國房市最大的海外買家。

據《華爾街日報》報導,調查涵蓋從2014年3月到2015年3月的時間範圍。所有在美國購買獨立房和公寓的國際客戶中,中國人佔16%,數量最多,而且比2013年的12%又有所增加。其次是加拿大和印度客戶,分別佔14%和8%。

從房產消費額來看,同期內國際客戶在美國的房產消費總額為922億美元,其中中國客戶為286億美元,同樣位居榜首,而且比2013年增加了30%。加拿大和印度分別為112億和79億美元。

《金融時報》報導,同期內,中國人在美國的人均房產消費額為196萬美元,比美國本土人多三倍。

中國客戶平均每套房產消費也是最高,為83.18萬美元,高於國際客戶的平均值(49.96萬美元),其次為加拿大、印度、墨西哥和英國,但他們都低於國際客戶平均值。

中國人喜歡海外購房 原因何在

中國房地產專家艾敬偉(Ai Jingwei,音譯)說,實際上中國人在國內的購房空間很有限,美國經濟和房市復甦後,中國人開始轉向美國購房。

Juwai.com是一個幫助中國客戶購買海外房產的網站,其聯合首席執行官安德魯•泰勒(Andrew Taylor)表示,美國現存房產和在建房都比較有潛力,而且國際客戶的購房政策很自由,所以成為中國買家海外購房的首選。

根據Juwai.com網站對客戶的調查結果,2015年第一季度,中國客戶在美國購房較多的地區是洛杉磯、紐約市、休斯頓、舊金山,以及奧蘭多。

比較各州的情況看,中國人在加州購房最多,佔他們總購房量的30%,其次是華盛頓、紐約、馬塞諸塞州、伊利諾斯州和德州。

中國客戶70%用現金支付房款,高於美國國際客戶的平均值(55%),而美國本土人士的現金支付率只有25%。

《金融時報》文章還提到,其實,從世界範圍來看,中國人也是西方各個大都市最大的房產買家,比如紐約、倫敦、悉尼、溫哥華、多倫多和奧克蘭等。

中國人大量湧入海外購房,主要是由於中國房產市場低迷,以及西方民主國家優質的教育體系和生活品質、完善的法律,以及買房後所享有的房產權。

但是業內人士認為,海外客戶,特別是中國人,對美國房市的需求的增加,會給美國本土人士帶來一定的負面影響。

MoneyWatch 專欄作家、在房產界有40年從業經歷的丹•巴納比克(Dan Barnabic)表示,美國大都市房產的這種高需求會導致房價不斷攀升,尤其是對美國中產階層人士來說,會超出他們的承受能力,進而使他們無力支付房產。現在一些城市正有這種趨勢,比如舊金山、紐約、丹佛、西雅圖等。
