Home run defies Covid fears


Hong Kong's primary property market remained active over the weekend with more than 150 flats sold despite a surge in the number of Covid cases.

Henderson Land Development (0012) raked in around HK$1 billion after selling all 136 units available in the first round of sales for The Harmonie in Cheung Sha Wan on Saturday.

It also released a fourth price list yesterday for 68 units at a HK$22,670 average after discounts, around 4.5 percent costlier than the average price of the first three lists.

The fourth batch, which offers homes sized 322 to 377 square feet, is priced from HK$6.54 million to HK$8.11 million after discounts, said Thomas Lam Tat-man, a general manager in the sales department.

Those interested may send in checks before the end of Tuesday and the second round of sales will take place Thursday.

Elsewhere, La Marina atop Wong Chuk Hang MTR station saw at least 21 deals, with its developers cashing in more than HK$580 million.

The second-hand market also saw some improvement despite Covid, with property agency’s' top 10 estates seeing nine deals, up 80 percent.

Property agent said that many prospective buyers were hurrying with purchases now because they were worried that prices will rise sharply after the seasonal boom around Lunar New Year.

The agent said that the boom is "very likely" to appear after the holiday as sentiment picks up thanks to the liquidity injected by China's central bank and stock rallies, but it also depends on the pandemic situation.

力寶中心每呎49元跌28% 交吉近兩年始租出

受疫情等因素打擊,甲廈租金備受壓力。消息指,金鐘力寶中心一座高層單位交吉近兩年後,以每呎約49元租出,低市價約7%,較舊租金下挫約28%。

市場消息指出,金鐘力寶中心一座高層04至05室,面積3763方呎,以每呎約49元租出,月租約18.4萬,低市價約7%;據代理指出,上址自去年1月交吉至今,舊租金每呎68元,故新租金跌約28%。

據本地一家代理行資料顯示,該甲廈近期頻錄成交,該甲廈一座低層2室,面積約2466方呎,去年11月以118368元租出,平均呎租約48元。

該行代理表示,去年下半年,甲廈空置率逐步改善,惟整體租金表現仍備受壓力,近期,部分業主希望在農曆新年前將單位租用,議價空間逐步擴闊,故近期甲廈租金均見折讓。

月租18.4萬低市價7%

該行發表報告指出,上月指標甲廈售價按月微升0.1%,按年則上升1.7%,整體租金按月微升0.2%,中環區平均呎租報65.1元,按月下跌約1.7%;至於空置率方面,上月出現輕微緩和,當中灣仔、銅鑼灣及上環的表現最好,空置率於上月報8.4%,錄連續5個月回落。上環甲廈空置率亦由11月份的8.7%下降至12月份的7.8%,連續2個月回落。

甲廈售價按月微升0.1%

該行另一代理表示,今年預料多個寫字樓一手項目推出,帶動寫字樓成交,荃灣的沙嘴道1號項目以及宏基資本旗下的黃竹坑宏基匯有機會在年內推出,有助刺激成交數字。
