A: Mrs. Chen, what do you think about this unit?
B: I don't like this unit because the view is terrible. Take a look. It is so close to the other old buildings.
A: I see, Mrs. Chen. I have another unit on the twenty-second floor. The view is much better.
(They take an elevator to the twenty-second floor and Peter Lee opens the door.)
A: Please come in, Mrs. Chen.
B: The area is a little bit small. What size is it?
A: The gross area is around four hundred and fifty square feet and the net area is three hundred square feet.
B: How much does it cost?
A: Let me check for you. This one is two point two million Hong Kong dollars and the price is open to negotiation.
B: Well! The average gross rate is about five thousand Hong Kong dollars per square foot and the net rate is around seven thousand and three hundred Hong Kong dollars per square foot. I think it is much too expensive for me.
A: Mrs. Chen, the demand for commercial buildings is steadily increasing right now. Also, the Mong Kok Center is a high quality office building. It is such a busy area for business. Think about it, whether for investment purposes or self-use it is still worthwhile.
B: Anyway, I would like to compare it with some other commercial buildings near this location. Can you help me?
A: Oh yes, Mrs. Chen. I will provide the marketing information for your reference as soon as possible.
B: Thank you very much.
A: You're welcome.
A: What do you think about the residential flat?
C: I'm so happy that my wife has finally found a flat that she likes. However, we would like to negotiate the price first. You know that three million Hong Kong dollars is too high for this location.
A: How much do you want to offer the vendor?
D: We'll offer two million, eight hundred thousand Hong Kong dollars for the flat. Please see how that sits with the vendor, Mr. Wang. We will be back later.
