It considers fiscal, monetary and market factors both domestically and internationally impacting housing availability, rental/mortgage rates, and Australian’s need for housing – affordable or otherwise – in the next two years.

Importantly, the report focuses on demand indicators and actual housing activity in an effort to consider housing affordability for average to low income Australians.The report also considers previous reporting on housing activity produced over the past 10 years by the authors and identifies where housing activity has evolved differently than was projected.
