Posh home prices up for 20th consecutive month in February

A luxury apartment at the Peak sold for almost $130,000 per sq ft at $590.19m.

Luxury residential property prices extend their steep climb after rising for the 20th consecutive month in February and gaining 15% in total as sustained demand for posh properties pushed prices up, according to Knight Frank's Hong Kong monthly report. 

Sales of luxury homes worth $10m and more surged 55% YoY and 26% MoM as luxury properties remained the sole bright spot of the slowing real estate sector where prices inched up by a marginal 1.3% MoM in January.
