Construction activity has been especially strong across Western Australia over recent months, which has also been reflected in the number of loans granted for the purchase of new-build property.
The Housing Industry Association (HIA) has reflected on how well the state's real estate market is performing at the moment, as emphasised through the latest home lending figures.
"WA's housing industry had an exceptionally strong year during 2014," commented HIA executive director for Western Australia John Gelavis.
"Weakening mining investment means that new home building has become an important source of economic growth in the state over the past year."
During the December quarter, loans for the purchase of new properties increased 6 per cent from a year earlier. This compared to a 10.9 per cent drop in loans for buying established homes.
