    I don't think you'll be able to get 20-30% off advertised prices. Most agencies have already slashed prices and at the most you may get 10% off and 2 weeks free to move in.

    The amount of discount from the advertised price also depends on when you start paying rent, obviously, the quicker you can start paying rent, the more discount you will be able to get.

    I've heard of someone who made an offer on an apartment of 21K per month when the asking price was 30K and the landlord agreed! That's a reduction of 30%! I think it depends on the landlord and how stubborn they want to be. The quicker you can move in the better. Note too that I've viewed apartments recently that have been empty for over 2 months because no one was willing to pay the asking price.

    Depends on who the landlord is. Victoria Gardens for example is owned by Chinachem and is actually increasing rents at the moment! They will not negotiate at all. It is still fairly good value for money though - 1700 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and reasonable utility/helper/kitchen space and lovely views with a pool & basic playroom for between $35K - $40K. Scenic Gardens I believe is stuck at around $60K and won't go lower. Anyway hope that's helpful and good luck with your move.

    Pokfulam is situated south of Hong Kong Island. There are residential estates, some Hong Kong University Student Halls and campuses located on Pokfulam Road.
