Residential transaction volume soars by 21.7% in January

Residential units sold during the month stood at 3,051. 

The residential transaction volume in Hong Kong climbed by 21.7% month-on-month to 3,051 units in January, CBRE reported.

The report attributed this to the improved market sentiment driven by the re-opening of Hong Kong’s border with Mainland China after three years. This is also supported by the easing of the HIBOR by 164 basis points to 2.71%.
