Population and dwelling stock growth – year ended..“Instead, in New South Wales, where the recent decline in housing prices has been the largest, the unemployment rate has continued to trend down. It is now at levels last seen in the early 1970s. The unemployment rate has also trended lower in Victoria.”“So, the origins of the current correction in prices do not lie in interest rates and unemployment. Rather, they largely lie in the inflexibility of the supply side of the housing market in response to large shifts in population growth.”And that, according to him, is where much of the blame goes, with supply taking “the better part of a decade” to react to population growth and nonresident demand.Domestic investors also added to the cycle. he said, especially in New South Wales.“At the peak of the boom, approvals to investors in New South Wales accounted for half of approvals nationwide, compared with an average of just 30 per cent over the five years to 2010.” Investor housing loan approvals in $billions (seasonally adjusted).More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus14 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market14 hours agoBut “amplified” price increases designed to boost investor profits came at a price.“There is an internal dynamic to housing price cycles, and this one is no exception. By 2017, the ratio of the median home price to income had reached very high levels in Sydney and Melbourne.” “Finding the deposit to purchase a home had become beyond the reach of many people, especially first home buyers if they did not have others to help them.” But Dr Lowe refused to blame tighter lending standards for the shrinking buyer pool, saying “the main story … is one of reduced demand for credit, rather than reduced supply”.He agreed though that some lenders have gone too far the other way now — and if they couldn’t find the right mix it would have economic impact.“As lenders recalibrated their risk controls last year, the balance may have moved too far in some cases. This meant that credit conditions tightened more than was probably required.”“Now, as lenders continue to seek the right balance, we need to remember that it is important that banks are prepared to take credit risk. And it’s important that they have the capacity to manage that risk well. If they can’t do this, then the economy will suffer.”The bright side for Mr Lowe was that the housing market adjustment was “manageable for the overall economy”.“It is unlikely to derail our economic expansion,” he said. “It will also have some positive side-effects by making housing more affordable for many people.”And what of interest rates? Dr Lowe was coy, except to in a roundabout way say that the best course of action right now was inaction.“We have the flexibility to adjust monetary policy in either direction as required. There are plausible scenarios under which the next move in interest rates is up. There are also plausible scenarios under which it is down.” “At the moment, the probabilities appear reasonably evenly balanced. Given these various cross currents, the Board’s judgement remains that the most appropriate course is to maintain the cash rate at its current level.” FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON TWITTER Housing price to income ratios: Average dwelling prices to average annual household disposable income.“At the same time, the combination of high prices and weak growth in rents meant that rental yields were quite low. So, naturally, momentum shifted.” “Given the big run-up in prices and the large increase in supply, a correction at some point was not surprising, although the precise timing is nearly impossible to predict.”He agreed that low interest rates played a part in making credit available cheaper than ever to borrowers — and that tighter lending standards were now having an impact.

Picture: AAP Image/Joel Carrett.Reserve Bank Governor Philip Lowe’s “housing market 101” crystal balled the housing market, even as he labelled Aussies the most “intense” property sector watchers in the world. In his Housing Market and the Economy speech, delivered in Sydney, Mr Lowe said “Australians watch housing markets intensely, perhaps more so than citizens of any other country”. He said the large run-up in prices and subsequent decline were caused by a combination of factors, but there was something weird this time around.This as the five years to late 2017 saw nationwide housing prices jump “almost 50 per cent” and since then falling “by 9 per cent” – that is, back to mid 2016 levels.“The current adjustment is unusual,” Dr Lowe said. “Unlike the other four episodes in which housing prices have declined in recent decades, this one was not preceded by rising mortgage rates. Nor has it been associated with a rise in the national unemployment rate.” MORE REAL ESTATE NEWS Fallout set to hit Tinder generation Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia Dr Philip Lowe.

Press Association Arsenal tackle the managerless Eagles – who parted company with Ian Holloway following the 4-1 home defeat by Fulham on Monday night – looking to consolidate their place at the top of the table. Next week, the Gunners host Chelsea in the Capital One Cup before games against Liverpool and Manchester United as well as the return European trip to Dortmund. It is a run of fixtures which Wenger accepts will test the genuine potential of what his squad can achieve this season. “Yes, it is a step up. It (the challenge) is for us to be at the level now of these games coming up, and I am quite confident,” the Arsenal boss said. “I think we have learned against Dortmund – even though we have lost. There were a lot of positives in that game, because we controlled them quite well, against a team who went in a convincing way into the final last year. “That performance should, despite the disappointment, give us belief.” Wilshere will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Crystal Palace after being substituted during the second half of the midweek Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund. The 21-year-old had earlier caused some concern when he pulled up after jarring his ankle when running through on goal. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Jack Wilshere’s troublesome ankle will eventually settle down – but does sometimes wonder if he is taking a “gamble” on the fitness of the England midfielder. Wenger, though, believes with careful management Wilshere can maintain his fitness levels in this World Cup season following a frustrating spell on the sidelines which scuppered hopes of playing at both Euro 2012 and the London Olympics. “He played Saturday and on Tuesday, so it is difficult for us to find the right rhythm for him,” said Wenger. “Before when I always played him, people say I overplayed him. Now I try to be a bit more cautious. “It is difficult because his ankle is up and down a little bit. “Jack is getting better, but it is still inflamed sometimes and responds sometimes to games, but after that it goes down again and is normal. “I think he will go through this period of stabilisation. “It is going upwards, but sometimes you wonder do I take a gamble or not? “I do what the medical people recommend with him because I am not a specialist. They are quite positive about him.”
