The Housing Authority (HA) formally established the HOS Secondary Market Scheme (HOSSMS) in June 1997. It enables public housing tenants and Green Form Certificate holders to purchase flats sold under Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) / Private Sector Participation Scheme (PSPS) / Tenants Purchase Scheme (TPS) (hereinafter collectively referred to as HOS flats) with the date of first assignment from the third years onwards. The launch of the HOSSMS increases the turnover of HOS flats so as to satisfy the society's need of subsidised home ownership. Apart from providing more choices for public rental housing tenants and Green Form Certificate holders to own a home, more public rental housing can be recovered for allocation to families in need.

Transactions in the HOS Secondary Market are similar to that in the open market. The purchaser and the seller may negotiate on their own and conclude the deal either directly or through an estate agent. Purchasers of flats in the HOS Secondary Market will assume the liability to pay the premium if they sell their flats at the open market in the future.

In response to the aspirations of low-and middle-income families to buy their own homes, the HA launched an Interim Scheme to extend the HOS Secondary Market to White Form buyers in 2013 and 2015, and  endorsed in November 2017 to regularise the Interim Scheme as the White Form Secondary Market Scheme (WSM) with effect from 2018.
