There were 28 per cent more home loan applications in Victoria, 15 per cent more in Queensland, 26 per cent more in Western Australia and South Australia saw a 22 per cent rise.

The Northern Territory saw the biggest growth of 66 per cent, while the Australian Capital Territory experienced a 30 per cent rise.
