Staff Reporter 1 minute read

Tight funding conditions, increased unaffordability levels and recent media negativity impacted non-bank financing commitments in March, figures released today by the ABS have revealed.

The  number of owner-occupied dwellings financed by the sector decreased by 13 per cent, seasonally adjusted, over March, after a revised decrease of 6.9 per cent in February.

The number financed by banks fell 4.7 per cent, in line with an overall 6.1 per cent seasonally-adjusted decline in owner-occupied dwellings financed in March.

Other significant ABS indicators released Friday included:


•    Total value of finance towards investment housing fell 7.2 per cent, seasonally adjusted, to $5.978 billion.
