The rise in home prices in Shenzhen and Shanghai happened despite the slew of tough regulations the city government announced in March. The Chinese government wants to tame the soaring real estate prices across big cities. 

According to a separate survey conducted by the CRIC, home prices across 288 biggest cities increased on an average by 7.2 percent in April from year earlier. However, on a monthly basis the average rise in April was only 1.5 percent, faster than 1.2 percent witnessed in March.
