Housing finance commitments are the monetary commitments made by significant lenders towards the construction or purchase of housing. This includes new commitments as well as the outstanding values of housing loan assets to individuals (owner-occupiers and investors) held by lenders at the end of each reference month. Significant lenders include Banks, Building Societies, Credit Unions, Life or General Insurance companies, Superannuation Funds and other financial institutions. Housing finance data are primarily collected via returns submitted to the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA). For more information about the collection of housing finance statistics, refer to the Explanatory Notes of Housing Finance, Australia (cat. no. 5609.0).
