Higher Y/Y Home Prices In China – 1st time in 9 months

China’s home prices recorded their first year-on-year increase in nine months in December, an independent survey showed Friday, but it said a huge rebound nationally was unlikely.

The cost of a new home in 100 major cities averaged 9,715 yuan ($1,560) per square metre last month, up a marginal 0.03 percent from December 2011, the China Index Academy (CIA) said.

Prices rose 0.23 percent from November, the seventh consecutive monthly rise, it said in a statement.
