Will we see a further decline in the Australian property market?


Will we see a further decline in the Australian property market?

While APRA has not yet released the data for the December 2018 quarter for housing loan approvals, we can see September 2018 showed a 56 per cent decline of interest only loans approved. With investors less active and less foreign buyers, and new buyers at 17-years lows, it seems the real decline in residential building activity is yet to materialise as we look at the correlation between building approvals and building starts.
