Real estate in Hong Kong: Hot property listings and market update

A commonly used phrase these days is “to be in the right place at the right time”. We’ve certainly used it more than once. The Hong Kong sales property market has seen some prices falling since 2015 and is expected to slide further by Q4 2016. High interest rates, falling stock market and uncertain economic conditions are the key factors influencing the drop in property sales prices. Developers are continuing to offer cash rebates, mortgages and other benefits for buyers to keep the momentum flowing. One of Hong Kong’s largest developers sold 40 units within hours of its launch just after Easter. Seeing this kind of success, buyers are slowly becoming confident again and re-entering the residential market, showing interest to purchase lucrative properties.

The leasing market is in its peak season and despite many reports saying prices are falling of 15 percent or more, landlords of prime properties are rather keen to keep their face rentals untouched. With supply being less than the current demand, it’s not the time when we often see “bargain” rentals being transacted. On the other hand, a number of landlords are aware of the downward pressure on the rental market and hence are showing more flexibility in renewing leases at competitive rentals and lease terms.
