Master Builders Australia Chief Economist Peter Jones said the increases across the nation would be good news for the housing industry as whole, as more projects will ultimately lead to a higher housing supply – something desperately needed in most regions. 

"Investor housing commitments for construction of new dwellings rose strongly to be up by nearly 40 per cent in the three months to August compared to the same period last year," said Mr Jones in a 10 October statement. 

"Over the year, owner-occupier commitments for construction of dwellings were up by 12.6 per cent and up 0.3 per cent for purchase of new dwellings. Builders will be encouraged by the combined rise of 8.3 per cent finance commitments for "new" dwellings."
