I've been surfing quite abit on the Hongkonghomes.com and Gohome on apartments to prepare for my relocation in March..
I have a couple of questions:
1. how much can i expect to bargain? I noticed the price listed on HongKongHomes is usually a couple of thousands higher than those in Gohome.. so i figured they might have inflated the price for advertising.
2. shld i get a furnished or unfurnished apartment? I do see some nicely furnished places.. but they are normally priced at least 2k higher than other units in the same apartment. That is easily 48k and i thought it might be cheaper for me to get an emptier place, and furnish it the way i like it to be with tht difference... no tax rebates for that thou.
3. Some apts marked with swimming pools do not actually have them opened! Is that common in HK? I would love to have an apt w a pool than to have to go to the beach often to get tanned..
