Buying Property Hong Kong

On any given day you can read forecasts from



about what

property market is going in, and you’ve probably also

noticed that the forecasts can vary day-by-day and





unsettled by that acquaintance at dinner

who is always so confident about his or

her investments and always seems to

have ingenious schemes that make you

wonder whether you are missing out. You

might find yourself thinking, “I’ve never





guarantee a 5% return, well, that does

seem rather good…” or “Well, Bob does

know a lot about the market, and he says

Ugandan property is set for a boom that

could double prices!”






If you find yourself considering fool-

proof, risk-free, high-return investment

schemes, please count to 10, sit down,




independent financial advisor. Failing to

do so can permanently damage your

financial health.







Forecasts are wrong almost as

often as they are right.

It’s not that forecasters are wrong because they are pulling numbers out of hats (at least the

more professional ones don’t), but they tend to forecast the future based on how the world

looked in the past. So they might say “As compared to rents, prices are at their lowest level

in 20 years”. Sure, that might mean that prices are set to rise. But then again, rents could

fall, or prices could fall even further to their lowest level in 50 years, or maybe something

important in the economy has changed altogether and prices will never recover (remember

when property in Tokyo was said to be worth more than all of California?).

It’s not surprising that forecasts

are often wrong.

Creative types are working hard to make the past look different from the future. For

instance, AirBnB is lowering prices for short-term real estate rentals all over the world,

policymakers in the UK are trying to knock down the barriers that have historically made

housing so expensive there and techies have transformed what were once easy-going

Californian suburbs into some of the most sought-after real-estate in the world.

Professionals can use forecasts by making

calculated bets across a diversified portfolio of


They get things right a little over half the time, and because their bets are spread out, they aren’t too

badly burned by the plays that go very wrong. Net-net, they achieve returns that are a little above

what they might have otherwise, and that pays for all that effort and risk and all the smart analysts

and researchers they hire.

However, as an individual, it is unlikely that you have the time and resources to build such a

diversified portfolio of holdings and maintain a team of top-tier specialists. So wagering a significant

portion of your assets on someone’s hunch that a certain high-risk market or development looks good

is foolish.

In fact, research has shown that most of your personal investment returns are likely to be explained

by the broad asset classes you invest in (e.g. real estate vs. savings accounts) and what fees and

expenses you incur, rather than by specific trades. So forget the get-rich-quick schemes and focus on

these common-sense tips for successful property market investment.

Property Market

Investment Tips :

Analyse property like an investment, not a

holiday home.

Sure, that cottage with a thatched roof is beautiful, as is that beachfront bungalow in

Thailand. But what matters to you as an investor are factors like: the price of the

property, the rent it can command, the likelihood it will increase in value, the

likelihood it might stay vacant, how much maintenance it will require, and whether

taxes, expenses and mortgage rates are attractive. At the right price, a cramped flat

in a grim but well-located neighbourhood in a northern UK city might well be more

attractive than a luxury penthouse in London.

Use your common-sense to judge the

market and the property.

Does the town have a strong and diversified economy with lots of company

headquarters, universities, government offices, and so on? Or is it a declining town

with no jobs, and the young are moving away? Is the property close to the right

transport links? Does it fit the neighbourhood and the town, or are you looking at a

large and beautiful house in a second-rate area? Is it really worth 20 years of a

doctor’s wages? Or does your gut tell you that’s not reasonable?

If you are only investing in a single

property, be conservative.

If you have several investment properties, it makes sense to be bold and bet on

riskier opportunities. But if you are investing a significant portion of your assets into a

single piece of real-estate, don’t shoot for the moon. Go for reasonably priced,

convenient property in safe markets that would be attractive to many different types

of tenant.

Shop around and fight hard for the right

price, mortgage and expenses.

That extra 5% on the price, 0.1% on the mortgage rate, or extra 1% on the

management fee will impact your returns for years to come, and once you accept

them, there is no turning back. Think about how hard it was to earn that money and

even if you don’t enjoy it, bargain hard in order to lock in the best returns.
