Y/Y prices are up 4.1 percent, with the top tier and Xiamen responsible for 50 percent of that number.

Existing home prices rose a smaller 0.7 percent and only 51 cities reported gains. Y/Y prices are up4.3 percent, with the top tier and Xiamen accounting for more than 50 percent of that advance.

Hefei was the winner in April: new home prices rose 5.7 percent and existing homes increased 6.8 percent.
