More secondary homes are being sold below market prices amid poor sentiment in the sector, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported on Wednesday.
A two-bedroom unit at Uptown in Yuen Long had its asking price cut twice, or by HK$200,000, before a buyer acquired the property for HK$4 million.
That’s HK$7,561 per square foot, or 20 percent below the market level.
A two-bedroom flat at Taikoo Shing in Quarry Bay saw its price slashed seven times before it was sold at HK$7.67 million.
The per square foot price of HK$13,000 of the unit represented an 18 percent discount to the peak level in August last year and a return to its level over a year ago.
Another two-bedroom unit at Mount East in North Point saw its price cut by HK$1.6 million in four months.
The unit was sold at HK$8.2 million, or HK$14,900 per square foot, after an aggregate price cut of 16.3 percent.
