Excluding little units, prices in the central region fell by 0.5 percent last month, after increasing by 0.4 percent in April. In the non-central area, costs fell by one percent, following a 0.1 percent hike previously.
The central region sub-basket comprises properties found in postal districts 9 to 11 and 1 to 4, while properties in the other postal districts fall under the non-central region sub-basket.
Meanwhile, prices of small units measuring 506 sq ft or below saw the biggest fall of 1.1 percent, after falling by 0.1 percent in April.
