No quarter of our property chart has the home element matched with a visiting star of the same element. It’s a matter, then, of paying attention to how you polish those stars, and which direction you make them shine. But where will it shine the most? The retail property sector has taken a beating and more than a few bears are claiming that there’ll be downward pressure on real estate this year. That does not bode well for the Island, plus the airport and Sai Kung also have the stars against them. All three areas have the claw rating, so you’ll need tenacious claws to get something there.
You’ll have to polish extra hard to get some baubles in those places. With Hong Kong ranked the most unaffordable city in the world for the sixth year running, there may be some more footage for your dollar coming your way.
Where to look? The north sits well, as does Lantau - cockscombs for them, and if you don’t want to wear such headgear when out that way, just gel your hair a little. The lower Peninsula, and the north-east and north-west, look reasonable and get our wattle and wing ratings respectively.
