And despite this some are still holding out for around 30k for the exact same apartment. So I guess it just depends on how much the landlord needs his/her apartment rented
    So you ended up getting the 2 bed + maid's room in Quarry Bay for 20k?

    That was almost a year ago and it was a new building with literally 100s of apartments for rent. The same building now doesn't have any 2 beds for rent at all that I can find advertised.
