NSW has the second strongest housing market in Australia, as new report shows rapid improvement in residential building industry.

 

The July 2014 edition of the Housing Industry Association’s Housing Scorecard has NSW leaping into 2nd place, on the back of its recent strong apartment building performance and a growing construction workforce that has risen to 324,000 since December 2013.

The twice-yearly Housing Scorecard report provides a summary of national housing sector performance by State, measuring 14 separate industry indicators including the value and number of home renovations, number of housing approvals, loans to home-buyers, and number of house transfers (sales).
