Differences in figures by SRX Property and HDB flash figures

HDB resale prices fell 0.6 per cent in June 2016, compared with in May says SRX Property’s data. That adds up to a 0.4 per cent drop in the second quarter, which contradicts HDB’s flash estimates that showed resale flat prices increased 0.1 per cent in the second quarter. R’ST Research director Ong Kah Seng opines that the differences was likely because HDB’s flash estimates typically only take into account the first two months of the second quarter, and will not include price movements in June.
