New Projects Transactions Cooled Down During Weekend
The 15% double stamp duty measure is making first time buyers more hesitant. During the past weekend, over 24 units were sold from new projects. An independent house of Yuen Long’s La Mansion, for which Cheung Kong has provided double stamp duty discount, was sold at HK$19 million.
