    Do Expats really lower property prices?

    Hi I recently moved to HK, and was told by a colleague that some local HK people do not want me to live in their building because they are scared it will lower their property price- is this true? Shall I find somewhere else to live?

    Was your 'colleague' referring to a specific expat or expats in general?

    I don't like the other expats in my building either.

    Are you sure they said "expats" and not "indians and africans". Lots of landlords around who have given instructions to their agents to not show their flats to Indians and africans.... you know, us dark, funny smelling people.

    This is a windup. Clovenpine has only made two other posts, and in one of them s/he expressed some outrageously racist views.

    Is this Friday afternoon troll thread? Similar to last week really.

    But in answer to the question, live where you like and be nice to your neighbours and they will be nice to you.
