New data a blow to doomsayers: HIA

By |

The HIA has made an interesting U-turn, replacing its GFC-level low predictions with a positive assessment of the property market. 

In a statement released yesterday, the organisation pointed to increased values across capital cities as an indication things were on the up. 

“The data will be yet another blow to the housing market doomsayers that, against all available evidence, continue to portend a collapse in Australia’s housing market.  

“The fundamentals of Australia’s housing market remain very strong – rents continue to grow at a rate well above headline inflation, rental vacancy rates are tight, and Australia’s unemployment rate remains the envy of the developed world,” said its senior economist Andrew Harvey. 

Only last month, HIA was concerned construction activity and home loan requests would reach “GFC-level lows” before the end of the year.

With interest rates at their lowest for more than 50 years, there are some great rates available. The best thing to do is to compare rates from all the lenders. Let us help take the leg work out of doing this - Compare Home Loans now
