S2.E2 - Sales volumes, rental data and the labour market
With REINZ releasing their sales statistics for December, Nick runs through the figures on sales volumes as well as the headline index results.
Kelvin then delves into the latest economic releases, including strong jobs data, increasing rental figures and yet more dwellings being consented.
This provides the back-drop for a discussion on the health of the economy, the state of the rental market (amid upcoming tenancy law changes) and potential for Government intervention.
Nick also mentions the Stuff article covering the latest Buyer Classification data, showing continued strength in mortgaged investor activity.
And as per usual a scan over the latest CoreLogic early market indicators provides insight into the short term health of both inventory and demand.
