Macromonitor has a strong expertise in residential building sector research and forecasting. We publish two regular subscription reports on the residential market, and provide tailored reports addressing clients' specific needs.
• Geographic area analysis for new developments - including the profile of recent movers into area (age, household type), price distribution of purchased properties, composition of household growth in area
• Scenario analysis - effect of alternative sets of assumptions on the outlook for dwelling demand; including scenarios for population growth, household formation behaviour, living arrangements and dwelling type preferences.

This report also contains Macromonitor’s in-depth demographic modelling of the demand for dwellings.
This consise report (provided in PDF and Excel format) contains Macromonitor's estimated breakdown of dwelling building into buyer type groups. In each state, and nationally, we provide the best possible estimates of the contribution to total demand for new dwellings from:

• First-home buyers
• Change-over buyers
• Domestic investors

• Foreign investors
Combining partial data and market intelligence from a variety of sources, we aim to help clients understand the approximate breakdown of past and future purchases of new property into these buyer segments.
