搶Offer 新戰缐 Wismer 優質鎮屋搶手 (Wismer Properties in High Demand)

The property market has been very active in Markham Wismer neighbourhood.  We wrote about Wismer advantages on April 16th Ming Pao Property Goldpage.  In addition, we covered a recent townhome sale at the record high price and some of the reasons.  

Here is the article.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 (轉載: 明報地產金頁 April 16, 2015 "宜家宜居"專欄)   
搶Offer 新戰缐
Wismer 優質鎮屋搶手
資料:恒生地產 Fanny Lee, Karl Wong, Dan Chan

 
萬錦Wismer Common社區(簡稱Wismer), 名字取其於"開荒者德國David Wismer家族",他們早於1806年已定居於這地,為區內社羣作出很大貢獻。市內很多農地產業也是由Wismer 家族捐贈慈善團體,現址Markham Museum (前身School house) 也是當時其中一項捐獻。

社區配套完善

Wismer社區位於16th Ave以北,Markham Road 以西,Mccowan 以東。區内有3個公園, 5個池塘,最大公園佔地46英畝; 另外,設有萬錦市最佳的足球場, 兒童戲水樂園, 網球場, 緩步徑等等。大部分房屋都是近十年內興建而成的,主要發展商為 Country Wide Home, Greenpark Homes 和 Regal Craft。由1,500呎鎮屋到4,000大宅也有提供。區內居民大多是年輕有小孩的中產家庭, 多半為華裔。 所以Wismer是一個朝氣勃勃, 不斷迅速發展的社區。



屬於該社區校綱的 John McCrae Public School 是安省小學的頂尖3%之內,去年排名63(全數3037間)。 而成立於2007 年Bur Oak Seconday School, 在安省740所中學排列第15位。 學校除了一般科目外, 還特別注重學生的資訊科技(IT),商業金融才能培訓,這兩項學科皆屬華亞學生所喜歡, 幫助日後爭取進入理想大學,為美好將來打好基礎。

社區商業配套完善, 有各
類餐館、快餐廳華人餐館, 另有一元店醫務所超市銀行

所在一起地點交通便利。在Bur Oak Ave16th 街Major Mackenzie有 VIVA 線巴士直通Richmond Hill 烈治文山市。Bur Oak Ave夾 Markham 路東面更有GO Train 火車站, 方便於往多倫多市中心上班一族。

高出叫價4成售出

由於上列種種有利條件,Wismer 房產深受準用戶歡迎, 以致樓價持續上升,不時出現「搶Offer戰」。約兩星期前,區內一所單邊大鎮房,在多位買家熱烈争購下, 以叫價140% 成交, 頓成居民一時佳話。 其實,除了樓市熱鬧氣氛和Wismer得天獨厚的環境因素外,屋的本身質素和間隔配套是不容忽略。

屋主是一對年輕有品味的家庭。他們對房子有一定要求,選設計圖則圖眼光獨到, 加錢向發展商購取多項昇級裝置,配合適當家居佈置,彰顯其屋獨特優點。例如, 把二樓洗衣房改成衛生間,令二樓由二套房變成了三套房設計。此改動不單令家人更方便, 更可提升物業的身價。另外, 屋主升級全屋木地板和樓梯,這種連貫性色系,也是升值原因之一。位處單邊,主層開放式佈局,加9呎樓底増空間感, 加上多個大窗戶, 天然光照遍每一角落, 令整個生活空間明亮開朗。另裝上加州窗簾, 方便調節家居光線氣氛,生活得以更協調
柔和舒適。

廚房寬大,實用空間多, 升級高身深色木廚櫃, 不銹鋼家電, 特寬18寸瓷磚, 升級眝物櫃提供大量儲存空間,有一間早餐間及可直出後園。


特大主人房五件浴間, 試身大衣櫃,法式兩扇大門別具氣派。 二樓另有3房: 其中2個套房。備有3套房是此屋的一個極大賣點。

房屋新, 環境綠化,配套設施齊備完善, 加上名校區這些優厚條件和地利因素,年輕活力人口令這社區趨興旺, 令Wismer更吸引, 自然地,更多家庭盼在區內置業安居。

What Our Clients Say (客戶推薦) ...

(Translate)
Tomas:  I am happy to have this opportunity to share our home purchase and sale expeience.  Firstly, thank Fanny for her tremendous help.

Tomas: We didn't know Fanny beforehand.  The purchase of this home and sale of our property just happened.  It seemed that everything aligned.  I just happened to drive by here.  My friend knew Fanny and understood that this was her listing.  I called and found out that this property was out of our budget.  However, she helped a lot.  We ended up buying this place.

Tomas: After buying this home. we needed to sell our previous home.  Amazingly, within 3 days, we sold our old home.  You may find a new home purchase and a home sale in 2 weeks somewhat unbelievable.  We truly thank Fanny as she facilitated a lot throughout the process.   She is an experienced agent.  She is professional.  In the buying process, she understood our limitations and also recognized Seller's needs.  She did everything she could to bring us together.

Tomas: Although we sold our place in 3 days.  It took a lot to make this happened.  For example, Fanny and Karl spent 1-2 days to help stage our home.  As a result, a comfortable home become even more comfortable.  This might perhaps be the reason it was sold so fast and so well. 

Tomas: The entire experience was not a coincidence.  Thanks Fanny for her helpful advices and professional approach during the listing process.  When we sold our place, it was sold over asking.  It was sold over asking by a lot.  She did not lose composure, she did not brag about the great selling price.  She was calm and professional.  She spotted areas in the agreement that might be problematic.  She took care of them.  We are, of course, happy of selling at a high price.  We are more pleased with Fanny seasoned handling.  We felt comfortable the whole time.

Tomas: Lets say, if you are to buy or to sell, you should look Fanny up.  I cannot guarantee that you will buy at a price you are most pleased with or sell very as quickly as my case (in 3 days).  However, one thing I am sure.  If you work with Fanny, when all are settled and done, you would be like me, knowing that we have found the right person becuase Fanny is really good.  Therefore, I strongly recommend Fanny as your agent.  You will be satisfied.

Tomas:  OK, 今次好開心有個機會同大家分享今次買屋賣屋的經驗。首先,好多謝 Fanny 這個過程幫助很多。

Tomas: 其實我之前不認識 Fanny。今次買屋同賣屋中間是一個很遇然丶很天時地利人和之下拼合一件事情出現, 很高興她幫了我們很多。其實我偶然經過這裏,我朋友認識Fanny,她這邊有間單位想賣,便打電話給她,談過後發覺 Budget 不合,但她好幫手,最買下這處。

Tomas: 跟著買了這裏之後,賣屋時,很有趣,在天時地利人和下,在三日就賣了房子。你聽過後,從買屋到賣屋只兩星期,好像一些神奇的事情出現。但我要好多謝 Fanny,其實在其中裏面,她幫了很多。她給我的感覺,她是一個很有經驗的 Agent。她給我的感覺,她很Professional。在買屋時,她很了解我的限制,亦很知賣家的需要,但她很努力在中間作這調和作用。

Tomas: 去到賣屋時,雖然話說在3天賣了間屋,但很多時需要天時地利人和來配合 -- 其實Fanny 和 Karl 在賣屋前用了一至兩日時間幫我把全屋佈置。把一間我感舒服的屋佈置成一間更加舒服的屋,所以可能是這原因,可以賣出。

Tomas: 整個過程給我看見不是一個遇然的機會,要多謝 Fanny 在中間給予好好意見,亦有一個很 Professional 的方法給我完成買賣過程。尤其是在賣屋時,我是 Sold Over Asking, 而且 Over Asking 很多!Fanny 給我一個很強的感覺,她不會因為賣得好價錢而樂極忘型丶炫耀自己叻,反而整個過程很 Professional, 很鎮靜地發覺在買賣合約裏某些位置丶某地方不是那麼理想,所以叫我們不要過早開心,要先解決合約事宜,以免之後出現問題。賣得貴價錢,固然開心,但更開心是 Fanny 的 Professional 手法,令我在整過程中很放心。

Tomas: 所以可這樣説,如果你有機會買屋賣屋時,你不妨找 Fanny。我不敢強調丶不敢保證你買屋時價錢很稱心,賣屋時很快(像我在3天賣掉),但有一樣我可以好肯定的是:當你找Fanny,當完成所有階段時,你和我都有一個相同的感覺--你沒找錯人,因為 Fanny 真是好好。所以我極力推介,如果你有機會,找Fanny幫手,我相信你會找到個很滿意的Agent.
