Housing Outlook – State and National

Comprehensive, up-to-date and easy to follow quarterly forecasts of home building and renovation activity in your state and Australia-wide.
{{ tag.label }} {{ tag.label }} $vuetify.icons.faTimes

Gain a deep insight into the Australian housing industry with HIA’s quarterly Housing Outlook reports. The Outlooks bring together the latest housing data nationally, and by state to provide you with an understanding of how the home building, apartment and renovations sectors will perform in the coming years.

The Outlooks cover:

  • Historic home building performance from across the country 
  • Nationwide housing sales, approvals and finance information  
  • Analysis of the Australian and international economic outlook, and interest rates that will impact home building 
  • Projections for the rate of single dwelling and multi-dwelling starts over the next three years 
  • Commentary on other key housing issues.  

Expertise you can trust

HIA is dedicated to expanding the understanding of residential building and the industry’s role in the economy. We have a proven track record as a trusted authority on what’s next for the sector with industry and governments. Our research can be grouped into five broad categories:

  • Tracking construction activity 
  • Assessing broader economic conditions 
  • Liaising with industry participants 
  • Modelling demographic developments in the context of housing demand.

Our unique collaborative approach

Our consultation with industry participants is a unique and valuable element of our forecasting process. Our direct lines of communication from our team in every capital city and throughout each region provides us with  up-to-the-minute insights that set HIA’s forecasts apart from the rest.

The economy’s impact 

We are heavily focused on the bigger picture. The performance of Australia’s economy is a crucial consideration – we take everything into account from investment, interest rates, government policy through to labour market conditions. We also consider unique demographic factors like housing demand so our state-specific reports can help you take advantage of opportunities in your region.

What does it include?

Get across recent industry activity, understand the economy’s impact on housing and learn what HIA experts predict will happen in new home building over the next three years.

You can customise your suite of reports to suit your business’ needs. You can access the National Outlook or your State’s Outlook as independent reports.

You can purchase a bundle so you can do relevant comparisons between the states you operate or intend to operate within. And if you’d like to automatically receive new Outlooks each quarter, there’s a 12-month subscription option.
