Meanwhile, house prices decreased 1.5% annually in December, following Novembers 1.6% decline.

Other indicators are testament to the depressed real estate sector. In 2022 as a whole, there were double-digit declines in housing starts, developer funding and home sales. The housing market should recover this year, thanks to the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions and a raft of fresh measures from the government to boost the property sector.
