HDB resale prices fall 1.3% in Q4

In the latest flash estimates released by the Housing and Development Board (HDB) yesterday, the Resale Price Index (RPI) fell 1.3 per cent to 202.1 for the final quarter of last year. Previously, it had fallen 0.9 per cent from a record high of 206.6 in the second quarter of last year.
