This year, HOS 2022 will be launched at a 51% discount. Seeing that it is sold at the highest discount rate over the years, the price of HOS seems to be getting more and more flat. It is easy to think that the Lam Cheng government's housing policy is only “virtuous”. However, we analyzed the latest trends and changes in the cost, square footage, quantity and selling price of new HOS flats in recent years with reference to the financial statements published by the Housing Authority, the annual sales arrangements of HOS flats and the average price per square foot  . The flattening of housing is just an illusion. Dismantling the specific financial operations of the HA's discount promotion is more likely to predict the positioning of the HOS policy in the future.

The current HOS discount rate is significantly higher than the previous 30% discount . The high level seems to make Shadow Making the public feel that HOS flats are getting more and more flat, and more families with lower financial burden should be able to buy HOS flats.
