There is no minimum holding period to keep your property, the main difference is the taxes and fees you pay at transfer when you sell the property.

For properties that are sold within less than 5 years of ownership “special business tax” is applied at the rate of 3.3% of the sale price, if you were to hold the property for over 5 years you will only pay a 0.5% stamp duty of the sales price.

For understanding the taxes (capital gains and personal income tax) - please check out this link for a full and clear breakdown on all the fees and costs associated with selling your property.
