指標甲廈交投按年急跌54% 代理:首九個月僅錄52

受疫情等負面因素,甲廈市場交投急速放緩。據代理資料顯示,50大甲廈於今年首9個月僅錄52宗成交,較去年同期的114宗急跌約54%。

綜合代理的數據顯示,9月份50大指標甲廈合共錄得8宗買賣,較8月的修訂數字增加3宗,亦是近4個月以來的新高,最新的成交面積約1.79萬方呎,按月上升約121%。

上月錄八宗成交

上月的買賣個案分布較為平均,面積介乎數百至數千方呎不等,地區集中於九龍,當中不乏短綫買賣,是近期較罕見的情況。

交投集中九龍區

總計今年首9個月,指標甲廈共錄得52宗買賣,較去年同期的114宗急跌約54%,與商廈市道暢旺時,例如2017年3月單月錄得53宗相比,更顯出今年以來甲廈交投十分淡靜。

9月份買賣主要集中於九龍區,期內共錄5宗,至於港島及新界區,分別各錄1宗及2宗買賣。上月港島區的成交來自金鐘力寶中心1個單位,以逾億元易手,是今年分層甲廈罕有錄得逾億元的買賣個案。此外,9月份錄得「零」成交的甲廈共有44座,較8月的46座稍為減少。

尖區錄短炒個案

代理表示,本港第三波疫情緩和,加上個別業主願意擴大議價空間,令上月的指標甲廈交投略為增加。隨疫情再次出現緩和,預計第四季甲廈租售價跌勢有望開始喘定,如果市場未出現更多壞消息,租售價料平穩。

市場資料顯示,今年甲廈錄首宗短炒個案,康宏廣場20樓9至11室,面積約2842方呎,望維港景,今年7月由投資者以每呎1.25萬購入,低市價20%,涉資3552.5萬,買物業,上月以賣公司沽貨,平均每呎1.58萬,涉資4490.36萬,帳面獲利937.86萬,物業升值約26%。

山頂文輝道地估值86億

政府今季僅推出2幅住宅地招標,最矚目為重推山頂文輝道地王,並「一拆二」、細分兩幅土地出售。

拆細重推招標

山頂文輝道地皮2、4、6、8、9及11號,前身屬於政府高級公務員宿舍,是山頂最高地段,該地皮曾於於2018年10月時流標,整幅地皮佔地18.9萬方呎,可建樓面約40.4萬方呎。而是次拆細重推,季內推招標的地皮,佔地逾13.4萬方呎,可建樓面約28.7萬方呎,可建約240伙,最新市場估值介乎約86億至112億,樓面呎價約3萬至3.9萬。

有測量師表示,該地皮將分拆為兩部分出售,可降低投資總額及減低流標風險,相信能吸引更多發展商入標,惟地價會有折讓,難創新高;而率先推出招標的地盤面積佔原先地皮的七成,佔比較大。

上月50大甲廈成交創4個月新高

本港第三波新冠疫情有所緩和,加上寫字樓物業價格普遍累積一定跌幅,吸引部分投資者入市,令指標甲廈交投略為反彈。代理資料顯示,9月50大指標甲廈合共錄得8宗買賣,按月增加3宗,亦是近4個月以來的新高。

代理數據顯示,9月指標甲廈共錄得8宗買賣個案,較8月的5宗略為上升,最新的成交面積約1.79萬方呎,按月上升約1.21倍。上月的買賣個案分布較為平均,面積介乎數百方呎至數千呎,地區則集中在九龍區,當中不乏短線買賣獲利個案,是近期較罕見的情況。

9月買賣成交主要集中於九龍區,期內共錄得5宗;港島及新界區,分別各錄得1宗及2宗買賣。上月港島區的成交來自金鐘力寶中心一個單位,以逾億元易手,是今年分層甲廈罕有錄得逾億元的買賣個案。此外,9月錄得零成交的甲廈共有44座,較8月的46座稍為減少。

總計今年首9個月,指標甲廈合共僅錄得52宗買賣,按年急跌約54%,與商廈市道暢旺時,例如2017年3月單月錄得53宗相比,更顯出今年以來甲廈交投十分淡靜。

代理表示,本港第三波疫情緩和;加上個別業主願意擴大議價空間,令到上月的指標甲廈交投略為增加,但仍然屬於個位數的甚低水平。由於本港經濟前景疲弱,加上政治氣候不明朗,削弱本港的營商環境,令寫字樓市場表現持續未見突破。

展望未來,該代理認為,本港疫情再次出現緩和,如果本港稍後可以恢復局部通關,內地資金或會重新投入市場,令交投有所反彈。該代理又預計,第四季甲廈租售價跌勢有望開始喘定,如果市場未再出現更多壞消息,租售價可保持平穩。

Travel clamp boosts home deals

Property agency recorded 36 secondary transactions at ten blue-chip housing estates over the four-day weekend.

Only Mei Foo Sun Chuen in Lai Chi Kok reported no deal, according to the agency.

Meanwhile, the number of transactions at the ten major estates was 15 over the past two days, down by one from a week before.

Restrictions on outbound travel stimulated home viewings and transactions in the secondary market over the four-day weekend, property agent said.

In the secondary market, a 717-sq-ft flat at Taikoo Shing in Quarry Bay changed hands for HK$13.55 million, or HK$18,898 per sq ft, after HK$850,000 was cut from the original asking price.

In Kwun Tong, a 687-sq-ft flat at Laguna City fetched HK$12.08 million, or HK$17,584 per sq ft.

In Tin Shui Wai, a 552-sq-ft flat at Kingswood Villas sold for HK$5.45 million, or HK$9,873 per sq ft, after HK$550,000 was cut from the first asking price.

In Sha Tin, a 304-sq-ft flat at City One Shatin is available for sale for HK$6.2 million, or HK$20,394 per sq ft, after HK$400,000 was cut from the initial asking price.

In Tseung Kwan O, a 406-sq-ft unit at Metro City fetched HK$7.26 million, or HK$17,882 per sq ft.

In Pok Fu Lam, an 844-sq-ft flat at Residence Bel-Air changed hands for HK$22.4 million, or HK$26,540 per sq ft.

In the primary market, a homebuyer forfeited deposits of HK$220,000 after walking away from the purchase of a 238-sq-ft flat at Emerald Bay Phase 2 in Tuen Mun. The flat was offered at HK$4.32 million.

Wheelock Properties collected about HK$143 million after selling 12 flats at seven projects in Tseung Kwan O over the past four days.

In the commercial property market, another property agency recorded eight transactions at 50 major Grade A office buildings last month, compared to five transactions in August. That hit a four-month high but remained at the single-digit level, amid political uncertainties and a bleak economic outlook, agent said.

The number of transactions of the major Grade A office buildings slumped by 54 percent year-on-year to 52 in the first three quarters.

Hong Kong’s home rental market faces tough fourth quarter as recession makes redundancies more likely

With many companies reliant on government handouts to stay afloat, more redundancies are likely in the next six months, which will dent local housing demand, property agency said

Landlords have been trying to boost demand by offering incentives other than direct reductions in rent, according to property agents

Hong Kong’s residential leasing market will be under pressure in the last three months of this year as the traditional low season coincides with the worst recession

in decades, property agents said.

With many companies reliant on government handouts to stay afloat, more redundancies are likely in the next six months with obvious negative implications for local housing demand, according to property agency.

“The rental market still seems precariously balanced as tenants and landlords face uncertain prospects,” agent said. “We expect the final quarter of 2020 to present further challenges.”

The official rental index in August was down 9.2 per cent from its peak a year earlier, according to data from the government’s Rating and Valuation Department. Monthly rents for apartments have been dropping steadily.

A flat measuring 551 square feet with three bedrooms at Kingswood Villas in Tin Shui Wai was leased for HK$10,000 (US$1,290), or HK$18.1 per sq ft, last week, according to property agent. That compares with the usual HK$10,500 to HK$13,500 monthly rent for flats in that area.

A tiny apartment at Ava 61 in Cheung Sha Wan was leased for just HK$8,000 last month, 12.5 per cent lower than the market rate, another agent.

Landlords have been trying to boost demand by offering incentives other than direct reductions in rent, agents said.

“Landlords and tenants are learning to navigate the current uncertainty with one-year leases, early handovers and rent-free periods,” agent said. “The fourth quarter is likely to see more challenges and we expect rents to soften further.”

Another agency has also seen more landlords willing to provide incentives to attract tenants, rather than lowering the asking rent.

“Prices will still be under pressure because of protracted unfavourable factors, including the weak economy and rising unemployment rate, which might erode affordability over time,” agent said.

Town house rents slipped by 0.8 per cent in the third quarter, representing a sixth consecutive quarter of decline, according to property agency.

Ina Chan, the third wife of the late gaming tycoon Stanley Ho, recently leased a house at Unir Garden in Shek O measuring 2,564 square feet to Harry Lee, a member of the controlling family of Hysan Development, for HK$135,000 a month, about a third less than the rate in 2013, according to Land Registry records.

Luxury residential rents traditionally mirror movements in prime office rents in Central, where rates have fallen and vacancy has been creeping up, according to agency.

Serviced apartments have offered a series of promotions to rescue shrinking occupancy levels, such as flexible lease terms, according to the agency. They are popular given concerns over the tough operating environment faced by many businesses.

Some hotel-like apartments offer ‘two for one’ deals – a two-month stay for the price of one. Rents in this segment are continuing to drift downwards.

Activity in Hong Kong’s overall property sector is picking up speed, according to property agency.

The agency expects the total number of property transactions, including homes, parking spaces, retail, commercial and industrial properties to reach 6,500 in September, up 20.6 per cent from August.
