11 04 2011

The avalanche of bad residential property news just keeps coming. Today, the ABS reported home loan approvals in February has fallen a seasonally adjusted 5.6 percent to 45,393 approvals. This is the lowest number in the past 10 years, when in February 2001, 44,663 approvals were recorded. February’s figure is now 32% lower than the peak 66,767 approvals recorded in July 2007 before the Global Financial Crisis took hold.

Tasmania lead the plunge, recording a 13.7% fall in approvals. Home loans in the Northern Territory fell 11.4, New South Wales 10.1 percent, South Australia 5 percent, Victoria 4.6 percent, ACT 4.5 percent, Western Australia 2.1 percent, while flood ravaged Queensland only recorded a 0.5 percent fall.
