Five fantastic homes for rent in Hong Kong

Laurie Lankester, Head of Residential at Jones Lang LaSalle Limited (JLL), gives us the low down on the Hong Kong property market and shares details of five fantastic homes for rent.

Market Update

As expected, the latter end of the first quarter of 2019 started to pick up pace in the leasing market. Traditional seasonal activity has started as more new arrivals to Hong Kong begin their search for their first home in town prior to the summer months and school commencing in September.

With mid-year being a busy time for lease turnovers, renewal negotiations and local moves have also increased steadily in activity. We expect this busier period to last through the second quarter, if the market continues along the usual path for one of the busiest periods in the leasing market.
