Abstract: Hong Kong has always been a world-class financial centre, and its level of economic development and high level of attention to the real estate market have made its real estate market always vibrant.

At present, Hong Kong's real estate market policy presents some remarkable features. Firstly, the Hong Kong government has been committed to providing housing for its citizens by increasing land supply and promoting the construction of public housing. The Government has also strengthened the regulation of the commercial property market to protect the rights and interests of consumers.

Secondly, there has been a shift in policy focus from restricting the rise in property prices to promoting housing supply. The Government has promoted the supply of residential land and increased supply through measures such as diversifying land supply and speeding up the approval process. The Government has also resumed a number of sites to accelerate land supply and increase housing supply through, among other things, the acquisition of private buildings.

Thirdly, the policies are strongly targeted. For example, the Government has adopted the policy of "one person, one flat" to crack down on "property speculation gangs" and strengthened the regulation of the housing transaction market, so as to provide more protection for home buyers.

Hong Kong Property Policy

However, the implementation of the policies on the property market in Hong Kong also faces a number of challenges and problems. Firstly, the effects of policy regulation have yet to be fully seen. Although the Government has introduced a number of measures to control the rise in property prices, property prices in Hong Kong have yet to return to a reasonable range, which has deterred many people.

Secondly, the policies may have certain adverse effects on the market. For example, the Government's restriction on the amount of loans used by buyers may reduce the heat of the market. The various restrictive policies may also lead to hardening of new flats, which may inhibit the market while narrowing the rise in property prices.

In terms of future outlook, Hong Kong's property market policy still needs to increase the supply of land and speed up the approval process to facilitate the development of new housing stock. The Government also needs to further encourage developers to build affordable housing to create more home purchase options for the general public. At the same time, the Hong Kong Government needs to further improve and optimise the housing policy system and raise the level of housing protection.

However, the policy also needs to avoid dangerous tendencies. For example, overly restricting investment behaviour may lead to problems such as falling property prices and reduced market vitality, thus affecting the development of Hong Kong's real estate market.

The current real estate policy in Hong Kong is mainly aimed at safeguarding the housing needs of the public, and the focus of the policy has shifted to promoting the supply of housing, and the policy is strongly targeted. In the future, the Government needs to increase land supply and improve and optimise the housing policy system. At the same time, the policy also needs to pay attention to avoid dangerous tendencies in order to maintain the stability and sustainable development of Hong Kong's property market.
