China’s new home prices fell for the third straight month in September and based on official data they’re diving at their fastest pace in almost a year.

Of the 70 cities listed in the data records, 54 reported price declines last month more than in August.

September and October are traditionally peak months for new-home sales in China, but the new data seemed to dash hopes for a demand turnaround.
