The April 2020 Lending to Households and Business figures released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics show the value of loans for housing fell by 5.0 per cent in seasonally adjusted terms with the decrease being driven by owner occupiers purchase of existing dwellings, according to the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA).
