    Key Quotes

    “Gain was led by owner-occupiers at +6.1% (TD 6%, mkt +4.7%) with investor finance falling –0.4%, also good news, as shows that the APRA macroprudential measures are biting the right part of the market.”

    “Owner-occupied finance annual growth jumps to 26.5% ... (1) the highest since October 2009 and (2) double that of investor growth at +12%/yr). No need to cut rates to stimulate housing at this juncture.”
