Home Loans Recover05 August 2020 by News Desk
Home Loans: The value of new loan commitments for housing rose in June, up 6.2 per cent according to the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics figures.
The rise in Home Loans in Australia in June reflects the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in May on auctions, open houses and mobility in general.
The value of new loan commitments for owner occupier housing rose 5.5 per cent, while investor housing rose 8.1 per cent. The number of owner occupier first home buyer loan commitments rose 3.3 per cent.
“Despite the rebound in lending activity, the value of housing loan commitments in June was down over 10 per cent compared to March after large falls in April and May,” said Bruce Hockman, ABS Chief Economist
The value of new loan commitments for fixed term personal finance rose 5.2 percent in June, seasonally adjusted, led by a 20.4 per cent rise in the value of new loan commitments for road vehicles.
The easing of COVID-19 restrictions drove the rises in May and June but commitments for road vehicles and total fixed loan commitments for personal finance remain below the pre-COVID level.
