ANZ/Property Council Survey

Survey Results Out Now.png

One of the big engines of the Australian economy is slowing, hit by tightening access to finance, softening forward work schedules and a less optimistic view of the economy.

Ken Morrison, Chief Executive - Property Council of Australia.

The ANZ/Property Council Survey gauges the property industry’s:

  • sentiments about the outlook for Australia’s national and state/territory economies;
  • views on property asset class performance;
  • employment intentions;
  • expected work flows; and,
  • critical industry drivers.

The most recent survey canvassed the views of over 1,000 respondents - including, owners, developers, agents, managers, consultants and government - across all major industry sectors and regions. 


The survey was most recently conducted for the March 2019 quarter. Over time, the ANZ/Property Council Survey will track changes in sentiment across property types, markets, as well as identify the determinants of industry confidence.

Survey respondents report that the availability of finance will worsen further over the coming year, which is a central feature of our housing outlook. In turn, respondents also expect housing prices and construction activity will continue to ease.
