The economic outlook for Hong Kong is uncertain. Property prices are in downward. With the upcoming legislation of the first-hand property vacancy tax, some developers are renting and selling the existing houses at the same time. A spokesman for Wing Tai Properties Limited points out that the company rents and sells the apartments in Le Cap of Kau To, Sha Tin, at the same time. The leasing business is in the start-up stage. They will gradually start to contact different leasing agents, and the leasing business is under negotiation. The group decides to adopt a reluctant sales strategy since it is a luxury project in a good location and with perfect design, and the sales and rentals will proceed simultaneously. According to the market source, some units have been leased. For example, a compound apartment with a usable area of 1,610 sq ft in Block 3 is rented at a monthly rent of HKD68,000, and the sq ft rent is about HKD42. Besides, an odd-numbered villa in usable of 1,939 sq ft is at a monthly rent of HKD68,000, and the sq ft rent is about HKD35.

Transactions in other luxury projects are still recorded.
