Chance for investment in Carlton property following new home lending growth

Combined with low interest rates, this could make the current landscape an inviting one for you to consider dipping your toes into. 

"Sustained strength in new home building will be of increasing importance on a number of fronts. In the first instance, Australia has seen quite strong population growth in recent years, yet the supply response has lagged and much catch-up is needed in order to meet that additional demand for housing," said Ms Hopkins in a 13 May statement.
