Dwelling approvals rise in November

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) recently reported that dwelling approvals rose by 2.9 per cent in November 2012, in seasonally adjusted terms, following a 5.1 per cent fall in October. 

The ABS results were largely in line with economists' forecasts of a 3.0 per cent rise in approvals for November.

The month of November saw dwelling approvals increase in Victoria (8.7 per cent), but decrease in South Australia (-13.9 per cent), Tasmania (-7.7 per cent), New South Wales (-4.0 per cent), Queensland (-1.5 per cent) and Western Australia (-1.1 per cent) in seasonally adjusted terms. 

Approvals for private sector houses fell 0.3 per cent, declining in South Australia (-7.6 per cent), Queensland (-4.9 per cent), New South Wales (-2.2 per cent) and Victoria (-0.2 per cent), but rising 6.8 per cent in Western Australia.

While permits to build more traditional, detached houses fell by 0.3 per cent, one of the industry’s most volatile sectors – multi-unit residential properties – showed surprising growth, jumping by 10.1 per cent. 

In the year to November, building approvals were up 13.2 per cent, the ABS data showed.
