Investing in Hong Kong Real Estate

end of the first quarter in 2016. Space is a luxury in

the city, so if you can find a spacious apartment for



Nevertheless, it is not merely residential property you

should be considering, as investors are veering

the event that the property is damaged by the likes of a fire or a



7. Apply for a mortgage early

Apply for a mortgage early to avoid disappointment, and make

sure you have the right documentation before applying. Expats, in

particular, require a considerable amount of documentation.

8. Assess theletting market

What is demand like for the area you are considering? What

types of properties are people after? Will the property require a

lot of adjustment before it is ready for people to rent?

Determine the rental yields for the area you are thinking about. In

general, an average of three per cent gross rental yield can be

expected in Hong Kong.

Make sure you adhere to all legislation that is in place, including

everything from Landlord and Tenant Ordinance to Buildings
