Hong Kong Sales & Investment Briefing

2014 has been a year of twists and turns for Hong Kong's property sector, with the robust mass residential price rally surprising the market most. While most commercial sectors held up well, the prime retail sector took a hit.

February 2015

  • While Occupy was charged with deterring property investment, many purchasers were still in buoyant mood and several billion-dollar deals were closed in the last quarter of the year
  • Luxury apartment prices rebounded another 1.3% in Q4/ 2014 and recorded a price rise of around 1.7% for the whole of 2014.
  • Whole-floor office transactions were evident on both sides of the harbour, with the Kowloon office market seeing more end-user demand.
  • The prime retail market suffered further setbacks although the suburban retail market was still popular with long-term investors.
  • Industrial market sentiment was again robust, being supported by both investors and end-users.
  • While most sectors look set to stabilise in the coming year, prime retail may be the only sector to face more headwinds.
