  4. Effective downsizing options for older Australians

    Author(s): Amity James; Steven Rowley; Wendy Stone

    Description: This research examined the extent to which downsizing forms part of older Australians’ housing preferences, the actual and perceived benefits of moving as well as the availability of downsize housing options. The research proposes a number of policy strategies for delivering housing alternatives to meet older Australians’ downsizing aspirations.

  5. Young Australians and the housing aspirations gap

    Author(s): Sharon Parkinson; Steven Rowley; Wendy Stone; Amity James; Angela Spinney; Margaret Reynolds

    Description: This research investigated the short and longer term housing aspirations and the housing aspirations gap among ‘emerging adults’ aged 18–24 years and ‘early adults’ aged 25–34 years in order to better understand how their aspirations are linked to a ‘broader life project’ across areas such as education, employment and family formation.

  6. Older Australians and the housing aspirations gap

    Author(s): Amity James; Steven Rowley; Wendy Stone; Sharon Parkinson; Angela Spinney; Margaret Reynolds

    Description: This research examined the housing aspirations of older Australians (i.e. aged 55 years and over), including home owners and renters in the private market and in social housing, to provide the evidence-base for policies needed to deliver their required housing and housing assistance.

  7. Navigating a changing private rental sector: opportunities and challenges for low-income renters

    Author(s): Sharon Parkinson; Amity James; Edgar Liu

    Description: This study investigated how low-income renters navigate the private rental sector (PRS) via three core pathways: the formal (via traditional or mainstream real estate agent intermediaries), informal (direct to rooms and dwellings privately managed by landlords and sub-landlords) and supported pathways (via community housing agencies). It provides practitioners and policy makers with an evidence base on changing practices and ways forward in shaping equitable PRS institutions.

  8. Inquiry into increasing affordable housing supply: Evidence-based principles and strategies for Australian policy and practice

    Author(s): Nicole Gurran; Steven Rowley; Vivienne Milligan; Bill Randolph; Peter Phibbs; Catherine Gilbert; Amity James; Laurence Troy; Ryan van den Nouwelant

    Description: This study examined the range of strategies and initiatives governments have used to leverage affordable housing supply across the continuum of housing needs (i.e. from social housing to affordable rental and home ownership) in a constrained funding and increasingly market driven context across a range of different jurisdictions and markets.

  9. Supporting affordable housing supply: inclusionary planning in new and renewing communities

    Author(s): Nicole Gurran; Catherine Gilbert; Kenneth Gibb; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Amity James; Peter Phibbs

    Description: This study examined how planning mechanisms support affordable housing supply in Australia and overseas. In England 43 per cent of affordable housing built in 2015–16 (12,866 units) were delivered due to inclusionary planning requirements, while more than 500 cities in the United States have inclusionary zoning or impact fee requirements to supply affordable housing. In Australia planning systems can support affordable housing supply, but additional funding or subsidy is usually required to produce homes affordable to those on low and very low incomes.
