Driven by the news of the passage of the scheme, YOHO Town in Yuen Long recorded about 9 transactions in January, a record high in the past year. Most of the transactions were for 2-bedroom units, with prices ranging from $6 million to $6.5 million, a drop of about 20% from the peak.
The 2-bedroom unit, with a saleable area of 393 sq ft and an asking price of $5.85 million, was the entry unit for the estate.
The flat has a square opening and is in its original first-hand condition of about 19 years ago.
There is a footbridge within the estate to facilitate residents' access to Point I for their daily needs.

With a saleable area of 443 square feet and an asking price of $8 million, the property has a view of Yuen Long West Rail Station and Shenzhen's Deep Bay.
The property is about 13 years old and has a terrace design. The kitchen and bathrooms are maintained in first-hand original condition but are clean and well maintained.
A large shopping mall in the shape of Point I is located at the base of the estate, which provides access to the Yuen Long West Rail Station.
