A spokesperson for AA Property Auctioneers Ltd. revealed that a total of five properties were sold during the auction, predominantly consisting of affordable units with price tags in the million-dollar range, including some suitable for rental purposes. Among them, the aforementioned unit in Tung Po Building stood out due to its unique features and proximity to the MTR Sung Wong Toi Station. Managed by an estate administrator, the unit boasted a practical area of approximately 254 square feet and an expansive terrace spanning around 883 square feet. It was initially listed with a starting bid of HK$2.2 million and eventually sold for HK$2.58 million, surpassing the opening price by HK$380,000 or approximately 17.3%. The price per square foot amounted to roughly HK$10,157.

With a practical area of approximately 473 square feet, the unit, together with its existing tenancy agreement, was initially priced at around HK$2.9 million. After intense bidding between two competing buyers, it was eventually sold for HK$3.15 million—HK$250,000 above the opening price—with a price per square foot of approximately HK$6,660.
