The CoreLogic Property Market & Economic Report for Q1 2021 reinforced the heated market conditions which led to the Government’s recent housing policy announcement.
Up to Q3 2020 first home buyers (FHBs) had actually had a strong property market share. But the rapid rise in values since then has caused them some ‘fatigue’, in terms of keeping up with deposit requirements – hence their share of purchases has dropped from 25% to 21%.
March was the third month in a row that mortgaged investors had a market share of 29%, or in other words it has been a sustained ‘record’ peak for their property purchasing activity.
With the dust now settling a bit on the new policy measures aimed at investors, the evidence suggests that the effects on the market may not be as significant as initially thought.
Last week’s announcement from the Government aimed at tipping the market balance in favour of first home buyers has dominated media coverage of the property market, and with the latest data showing continued value growth, it would appear the heightened attention is justified.
It was no surprise that the Reserve Bank’s stats on overall mortgage lending activity were strong again in February.
