Along with China renewing its push for property curbs is Hong Kong which last night doubled to 8.5% the transfer tax on property costing more than $258K (likely about 100% of transactions!). This comes following an earlier move to widen the transfer tax to include commercial purchases. EWH +1.9% YTD.
