Unprecedented Triple Whammy in Real Estate Industry

Resale prices and sales of non-landed private homes in February this year were hit by a rare “triple whammy” – the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chinese New Year seasonal slowdown, and the supply of new units from recent launches.

Prices of resale homes slipped by 8% while the sales volume fell by 13.1% in February compared with January this year.

Prices dipped across all three market segments:

  • Properties Outside Central Region (OCR) had the biggest decline of 1.3%.
  • Prices dipped just 0.1% for apartments in the prime districts or Core Central Region (CCR)
  • Prices decreased by 0.8% for those in the city fringes or Rest of Central Region (RCR)

Year-on-year (YOY), the private resale prices were up by 0.8% over February 2019. All regions saw YOY price increases in February 2020:

  • CCR by 0.8%
  • RCR by 1.6%
