  4. Buildings are not purely consumer goods, they also include investment considerations.
  5. Generally speaking, self-owned-flat is not speculated, operators tend to rent it, and investors will buy while interest rates are low.
  6. For the time being, the vacancy rate for housing in Hong Kong is about 5%, but the vacancy rate for commercial units is about 15%, which is relatively high.
  7. A common phenomenon during a rising market is to buy first and then sell later.
