The Western Australian Land Supply and Housing Activity bulletins bring together various measures and indicators that enable policy makers to understand the supply and demand factors of the land and housing market.
The bulletins cover measures of housing finance, dwelling construction, lot sale prices and volumes, rental vacancy rates, and the full range of measures in the land subdivision process – including conditional and final lot approvals, and the developer's stock of lots with current conditional approval.
According to the latest bulletin, dwelling approval numbers in the September quarter 2014 totalled 8,586 – 906 more than the previous quarter. The number of approvals for separate houses increased by 5 per cent between the June quarter (6,027) and the September quarter (6,328) while approvals for all other dwelling types decreased by 36.6 per cent from 1,653 to 2,258.
