Some people think that the emergence of Chinese buyers, like "crying wolf", they hold a lot of cash, buying luxury, is bound to push up local prices, which already has a precedent in Hong Kong - said Hong Kong authorities that are also discussing whether to restrict foreign people in the local buyers.
