Q4 2018 Key Market Indicators
As 2018 closes, it is time to celebrate some wins, the most notable of all being positive consumer sentiment and growth in the number of first home buyer loans. The Australian consumer sentiment index recorded 104.3 points in November 2018, which is above the positive mark of 100 index points, and represents a 4.6% growth over the past 12 months. This suggests increasing confidence in the economy, which after a year of federal budgetary and politics changes, is a positive way to end the year. A more confident society will have a higher tendency to spend, which will have a positive multiplier effect on the economy as a whole, be it in the retail sector, hospitality, property, and others.

Q4 2018 Key Market Indicators – New South Wales
New South Wales (NSW) has recently become much more welcoming for first home buyers. In the June quarter 2018, the state achieved the gold award nationally for the most improved number of first home buyer loans with a 68.8% increase over the past 12 months. It also achieved the silver award nationally for the highest number of first home buyer loans (as of June quarter 2018) with 7,252 such loans issued. This has been driven in part by being the only state to not decline in affordability over this period, helping it achieve the gold award nationally for the most improved home affordability loan index growth (as of June quarter 2018).
