This came off the back of a revised 11.6 per cent decrease in March.

Banks also experienced a two per cent decline in financing activity in April; overall the market experienced a decline of three per cent in dwelling commitments to $19.464 billion, seasonally adjusted.

Owner-occupied housing finance decreased most significantly, falling by 4.9 per cent to $13.406 billion, seasonally adjusted.
