Future Housing Supply

HIA Summit Addresses Future Housing Supply

“The risk of adverse social consequences due to a failure to adequately supply affordable housing for Australia’s growing population was a central theme of today’s Housing Industry Association annual Building Better Cities Summit,” said HIA Chief Executive Industry Policy and Media.

Attendees at the Summit heard first hand from an eminent list of local and international speakers about the challenges facing Australia in housing the population over the coming decades and the consequences if demand is not met.

“Australia needs to build another 1.3 million homes by 2020 to meet current population projections, however, at the current rate of building we will we fall 150,000 homes short.”
“Failure at all levels of government over a number of years to address the fundamental constraints to housing supply has seen residential construction experiencing its longest trend decline in post war history.”
“However, there are policy solutions. Greater competition in the finance sector and a close look at unlocking superannuation for housing are just two examples that were canvassed at the Summit.”

Keynote speaker, the Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey, gave an overview of the Coalition’s approach to housing and the broader economy, including floating the proposal for a federal government to provide incentives to state governments that meet housing targets.

“The housing industry would welcome a debate on federal-state incentives aimed at achieving housing supply targets,” said Mr Wolfe.
“Today was a very important step in recognising the problems facing housing in Australia.”
“The challenge now for governments, the industry and the community is to build on what we have heard and implement policies in response,” concluded Mr Wolfe.

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

Debbie & Brian - Jordan Springs 

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.
