Official figures show Hong Kong’s property prices fell for the third consecutive month in August, amid the city’s ongoing unrest.

The Rating and Valuation Department said private home prices dropped by 1.4 percent, far worse than the 0.1 percent fall reported in July.

The prices of small to medium-sized flats of less than 752 square feet fell the most, by up to 1.9 percent.

Meanwhile, private rents rose 1.6 percent last month.
