Chinese property prices already falling?

I've previously mentioned the new restrictions on property purchases in China. It appears they are already deflating prices.

From China Daily

The average price of second-hand houses in Beijing's Tongzhou district has dropped from 21,500 to 18,500 yuan per square meter, a decrease of 13.4 percent since the government issued stricter rules to curb speculation, the Beijing Times reported Wednesday.

Prices of some projects even plunged 25 percent, the report said.
Beijing Centaline Property predicted that housing prices in Tongzhou district will continue the downward trend and fall below 16,500 yuan per square meter by May.
It's only one bit of data but interesting nonetheless . . .
