Prices of new properties in mid-sized cities rose faster in March than that of big cities such as Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing, which saw faster price rises in the 2006-2007 period.

Urumqi, capital of the northwestern Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, continued to top the growth list with a 25.3 percent increase in March. It was followed by Haikou and Ningbo, which saw property prices rose 18.3 percent and 18.2 percent, respectively.

Beijing reported a 16.9 percent hike in prices of new properties in the previous month.

In contrast, prices of new homes in Shenzhen, a southern city bordering Hong Kong, and Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, fell 4.9 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively, from the previous month.
