50 indicators for 144,000 yuan per building for 14 consecutive months
The continuous bursting of the property market caused the property prices to increase in the first quarter of this year and beat market expectations. In March, property prices rose more quickly. According to the statistics of the Lijiage Real Estate Research Department, the average price of the 50 index housing estates in Hong Kong (average floor area price, the same below) was reported to be 14,400 yuan in March, which was a monthly increase of 1.7%, a record high, and has risen 24 consecutively. During the month, the cumulative increase during the period reached 32%, and has been broken for 14 consecutive months. If calculated in the first quarter of this year, it will increase by 4.6% quarter-to-quarter, an increase of 1.8% from the 2.8% in the fourth quarter of last year, which reflects the acceleration of property price increases in recent months and a sharp increase in the quarter.
Liao Weiqiang, CEO of Lijiage Real Estate, said that after the Lunar New Year holiday in February, the trading volume of the 50 indicator houses rebounded at a low level in March. The transaction volume increased sharply by 60.9% to 674, the third highest level in the past 12 months. . Among Hong Kong’s three district trading volumes, Hong Kong Island experienced the largest rebound, with a total of 117 transactions last month, which nearly trebled monthly.
Will Zhongwei Harbor rise 7% monthly
Among the 50 index housing estates, 34 housing estates reported rising property prices last month, accounting for 68% of the total, of which the monthly increases in Tseung Kwan O Centre and Victoria Harbour in Tai Kok Tsui were the most significant, rising by 7.4% and 7.1% respectively month-to-month. Greatly outperformed the market.
Liao Weiqiang expects that the sales volume of registered housing estates in the April 50 index will decline steadily, with the opportunity to fall again by 10% to about 600, but property prices will increase by 1.5% to 2%.
