Trends & Forces

Rising Hong Kong and Mainland China Property Values

Hong Kong housing prices have gained 55% over the 2 year period from May 2009 to 2011 on record-low mortgage rates and buyers from China. In January 2010, Hong Kong was ranked the world’s most expensive place to buy a home by London-based property broker Savills Plc in January. Such growth in the property market has generated substantial profits for Wharf, particularly through the revaluation of the fair value of assets its portfolio.

In November, the Hong Kong government increased property transaction taxes and pledged to boost land supply amid public protests that prices are unaffordable; however, these initiatives have done little to cool the Hong Kong property market.[1]

Growth in Consumption in Hong Kong Benefits Group's Retail Properties

Private consumption increased in 2010 by 7.6% and is expected to continue to grow due to a two-year low in the jobless rate of 3.4%. Additionally, the Hong Kong government will give a handout of HK$6,000 to each permanent resident in 2011, as stated by Financial Secretary Tsang said in March 2011. The money will encourage retail spending, benefiting businesses in Sun Hung Kai's retail properties such as YOHO Midtown as well as the group's newest shopping and entertainment attraction Mikki, which will have 205,000 square feet of space targeting young customers with a premium shopping experience. The group will also develop a million-square-foot shopping and entertainment hub at the heart of Yuen Long.[1]
