HDB resale price index falls 0.2%, transactions up 29.8%

The HDB resale price index dropped by 0.2% q-o-q to 130.8 in 2Q2019 from 131.0 in 1Q2019, according to data released by HDB on July 26. This was not surprising as the resale price index has remained unchanged from the flash estimate released four weeks ago, notes ERA Realty Network.
While this is the fourth consecutive quarterly decline, prices have dipped by less than 1% over the past year, indicating that the price decline has largely stabilised, notes Christine Sun, head of research and consultancy at OrangeTee & Tie (OTT).
