In Hong Kong, the government owns all rights to land and releases plots when supply is considered low. To aggravate the situation, developers (upon obtaining land from the government) hold onto land in attempt to drive up prices. The result is a shortage of properties, high prices, and an average unit size that is smaller than that of other countries. This case takes a closer look at how these factors affect Hong Kongˇ¦s housing market.
