Private-home prices in Singapore are on the rise again just one year after the government introduced curbs to cool the market.

Dwelling values jumped 1.5% in the three months through June 30, the steepest gain since the second quarter of 2018 and more than the 1.3% in the government’s earlier flash estimate, according to final data from the Urban Redevelopment Authority released Friday.
