There were also new projects being put on sale in the same district this year, attracting a lot of purchasing power. In the short term, there are also new projects for sale in East Kowloon. How will SEA TO SKY, one of the large-scale new projects this year, be priced? Kwok Chi-Wai believes the market has a certain demand since there have been many second-hand property transactions in LOHAS Park in a past period. Each housing estate has its characteristics and selling points. He expresses that the pricing will refer to the prices of the first-hand, second-hand, and feature units, in the same district. He also says that the opening of LOHAS Park Mall in a short period and the traffic of Tseung Kwan O Cross Bay Bridge in 2022 will benefit the area's appreciation potential. Many small units have been sold in the market in the past few months. It is believed that the SEA TO SKY can attract a group of home-changers.
Chiu Kwok-Hung expressed that "National Security Law Related to Hong Kong Area" has a stabilizing effect on Hong Kong's future. He did not believe there would be a flight of capital or immigration tide in Hong Kong, and emigrants may not sell their house in Hong Kong. Regarding the renewed tensions in Sino-US trade relations, he believes that the results of the first phase of Sino-US negotiations are good for Hong Kong and China, also good for the whole world. He describes the results would bring light to the Hong Kong property market.

The economy is expected to rise steadily in the second half of the year.
Looking forward to the outlook of the property market in Hong Kong in the second half of the year, Chiu Kwok-Hung believes that property prices have been adjusted by 5% to 8% in the first half of the year. The economy is expected to rise steadily in the second half of the year under the government's powerful measures to the epidemic and a series of policies to ensure employment. At the same time, the property prices trend will depend on individual regions and housing estates. "The sales will be difficult if the selling price is too high." He also points out that the group has always put on sale the properties at market prices. And there have always been discounts for the first batch. He is confident in the sales of SEA TO SKY.
