    Home prices in Hong Kong are the highest in the world but people are still desperate to get their own piece of real estate.

    The city has experienced a buying spree for nearly a year, pushing home prices up 23 percent.

    The last time a similar frenzy happened in 1997 and the market crashed soon after.
