How prudential measures affect property purchase decisions of potential buyers


The Centre released a new edition of Occasional Paper on ‘Choices for Homebuyers under Prudential Measures on Hong Kong’s Housing Market’, which reviews the trends of property prices, transaction volume and completion, and attempts to analyse how various regulation measures affect the property market. Based on results of quantitative analyses, this paper particularly looks into the magnitude of the suppression on purchasing power after imposing property mortgage prudential measures, which directly affects the choices of potential buyers.
