Residents were not moved by the recent property spending spree by overseas buyers but they reckon Hong Kong, with its business environment and investment policy, remains attractive to foreign property buyers. Jenny Cheung Ying-ying, 31, secretary 'Their buying is not related to the conditions in the property market. If they are using money from the company's housing allowance to pay rents or mortgages, I guess they would prefer buying as long as they are stationed here.' Tyron Tsang Hing-wing, 47, designer 'Hong Kong is still one of the best investment places in the world. I won't follow the foreigners because I am satisfied with owning one property.' Sunny Chu Kam-ming, 43, civil servant 'The Capital Investment Entrant Scheme has explained why more foreigners and Southeast Asians are buying. Yet I won't be affected by them because I already have a flat. But other locals might follow suit as Hong Kong people have a tendency to follow the trend.' Alex Yu Chit-chiu, 30, sales manager 'Foreigners are buying more local flats because they like to use Hong Kong as a base before taking a step into the mainland. I would rather hold cash instead of buying one more flat.'
