A Growing Price Index

The private residential property index climbed by 6.0 points, from 188.6 in the 4th Quarter of 2022 to 194.6 in the 1st Quarter of 2023.

This was like a small bird taking off, a 3.2% increase compared to the tiny 0.4% increase in the previous quarter.

Different Regions, Different Stories

In the Core Central Region (CCR), home (non-landed private residential property) prices grew by 1.0%, like a young tree growing taller.

In the Rest of the Central Region (RCR), prices increased by 4.0%, almost like a race car speeding up.

But in the Outside Central Region (OCR), prices increased by 1.9% after a 2.6% drop in the previous quarter, as if the wind had changed direction.

What About Sales?

In the 1st Quarter of 2023, sales went down like a deflating balloon.

It fell about 8% from the 4th Quarter of 2022 and about 38% from the 1st Quarter of 2022.
